I was finally able to do an assessment after the 10 mile, variable terrain and road run. There was about 2-1/2 hours of running. 

Its early yet, but no leaks or drips from the re-sealed T90/Spicer 18.

Both pinion seals leak enough to need attention soon.

The passenger knuckle needs to be re-sealed. In other words, both knuckles need to be gone over.

Otherwise a dry run.

They opened the gates to a nearby trail and what a great excuse to shakedown the jeep. It was hot enough to see how the engine ran under load over time (5hrs).




We also tested the articulation limits of the suspension. Two tires spinning on air.




The view from the other side:



We had a great time. The jeep ran great. Engine temps stayed consistent around 180-190*. 

 The STA super traxions were run tubeless at 20lbs and worked great.

Looks like a great time!  It seems whenever I finally make my mind up on NDT's, I see these Super Traxions and don't know what to do...Cry

Another day putting some hours on to work out the bugs. There is an intermittent chirp up front and the engine, though running great, needs some final tuning. We put about 6 hours on the jeep. Enginectemp runs 180-190. Oil pressure just under 40. (Rotella 15/40).

Were you on Old Flowers west of Ft Collins? One of our favorite trails.

Exactly. We saw two other vehicles and two mountain bikers. That trail has changed a lot since the fire but it is still worth doing the hassle of access parking on the E end not with standing. 

We explored all the side roads that were clear.
