Kind of worried about Stealthy. Hope he is OK. Rocket? You good man?

In other Az news... Looks like we have a senator who is going to rob a midterm election from the people. What a POS that guy is.

Yeah, they get rusted in there pretty good. Check the shaft joints before you put all that back.

Hey man, Wish I knew more about that local area. Cruiser lives just a short jump from there and might know more. But what I do know is pretty much all of Az is open for off roading trails and there are incredible areas no matter where you go. That area is kind of similar to the higher areas where you are there in New Mexico, But the red sandstone scenery is just incredible!

Finding some less popular trails is the key, they have a huge off road guide and tourist industry in that area and traffic can get busy out there. Just keep in mind we are right now going into our Monsoon season and getting caught up in the canyons and washes during floods is going to get more common. But I'm sure you are familiar with those over where you are too?

Just picked up new hubs, u-joints, and top and bottom ball joints. Figured since it was rusty and so hard to get off, might as well do it all once!

The White Mountains are nice, kind of like the Grant's Pass area. But Sedona is unique man. Hope you do get the opportunity to come!

Looks like I spent $300 on parts for nothing, Bent axle ears trying to remove bearing caps on u-joint. Can't even get the ball joints to move at all, not even using a hydraulic press.
All I've done is to destroy my jeep. Can't even moved it off the jack stands and out of my driveway now. I will never buy a vehicle from back east again.
Probably time to junk it.

At this point I would be forced to shop for rebuilt axle assemblies with the U-joints already installed. Wouldn't be the first time his has happened man.

The axles are not what is disturbing me so much, less than $200 with u-joints installed ( per side ). It's the freaking ball joints that is holding up the repairs.
