I am out. Lexi's wedding went off without a hitch, but I have way too many things to catch up on after 3 months of covid influenced wedding prep.

Any time you want to head this way we can figure something out. Just let me know and don't be like AssBurns.

I was just scrolling through videos and came across one with Ranger just happily swimming around in East Lake.
Yeah I feel bad I didn't hit you up while we were up there. We were so busy with my friend and his wife that we didn't have time to spare.

No worries. Just fun to fling crap in your direction.

One of my weekend pics - only cried a little during my toast. Made the mistake of looking at her before I was done.

Looks like a great time! Congrats!

Yeah I know you are just giving me shit, but I deserve it. Next time I head up there I want to have a little more free time to just wing it.

Fuck my retarded truck bullshit. :headwall:

Finally got around to rebuilding my front diff. Couldn't find anything grossly wrong with the old set up. Everything was still snug and smooth operating. Pinion preload was about 4 inlbf, carrier preload was around 4inlbf, backlash was good at around .007-.008 checked at 3 points on the ring gear. Mesh pattern looked basically the same as when it was set up, a little deep on 1 side but good on the other.....So other than contaminated oil, no idea what could have caused the gross temperature increase on the Rubicon.

Before I installed anything on the harrop carrier I went to test the locker function to make sure it still worked. Hooked it up to the battery, the electromagnet warmed up a little.....but it didn't engage. Fucked around with it some more and turned out there's an open in the electromagnet. Call up ECGS on how to get replacement parts and they said getting parts from Eaton/harrop is a bitch and they've been trying to get the same magnet for another customer for a while, they said to start trying myself and call back on Friday to check for an update. They said it could be months before I could get a replacement electromagnet. :headwall: So I guess fuck it, I ordered another shitty ARB and I'll put the harrop in the 2019 whenever I get parts to fix it. :headwall:

Ordered new tires for my other truck to get rid of the beadlocks and MTRs and sell them to Steve....... was told it would be 3-5 days before the tires came in....they got in 3 of the tires last week but didn't get a 4th. Said they would call after they get the 4th......Currently at 2+ weeks. :headwall: Not that that matters since my 2019 is at the body shop.....

Some fuck stick backed into my new truck in an autozone parking lot and caused $1700 of damage to the bumper and tail gate, it seems the guy is being honest about it and his insurance is covering the whole repair. Its currently getting fixed at a body shop so I'm DDing my broke dick 2013 truck, hopefully my 2019 be done by friday. :headwall:

It got hot enough to burn up a magnet. That's fucking impressive.

Should we start planning Dusy 2021 cause this went to shit in a hurry.

I ordered the ARB just now from ECGS, shouldn't take long to get it. Sounds like the only people that might show up to this is Me, you, and @AssBurns. If I can get my shit together we could run Rubicon in reverse or Fordyce :evilgrin:

I may not make it. I'm currently looking for a job since I no longer have my old one.

What dates are we trying to do this over?

@AssBurns What dates worked for you?

Whaaaaat? COVID employment casualty?
Nope. Bi-polar boss casualty. Last Monday we had a little disagreement. I was pissed to the point I almost told him to go fuck himself. I managed to maintain a professional attitude and we let it go. Or I had. Came to work Tuesday morning and was told we need to part ways. I packed up my shit and haven't looked back.

I don't really have date preference. Not too early (Like not next weekend) or too late (Like last year). Robert invited me to run Rubicon with him since this trip is likely going to shit it sounds like. If you wanna run Rubicon again, I can ask Robert if they care if someone else tags along.

Fuck that sucks man. Maybe let it blow over and let his hot head cool down a bit. Sounds like this isn't the first time this type of situation as arose. Let it settle, and let his emotions pass. Then get your job back.
