I was just happy my generator fired right up. 😆

 

Those are some great upgrades. I've had many shackle issues in the past. One time I had to ratchet strap my suspension together with a 4x4 block of wood supporting all the weight between the leaf spring and frame. We drove 5 hours home from Glamis like that. 😳 I installed the same HD, grease-able shackles shortly after that trip.

 

 As for my fuel station, that quit working in 2006 probably because of the same stupid swollen gears. Haven't needed it since. haha

Ehh, I made sure my batteries had water in them. Lol.

 

I should probably re grease my wheel bearings but I'm to lazy. So I'll just use the EZ lube fittings for another season. 

 

Nice upgrades.

Genny starting right up is always a good sign. 😎 Most likely the gears, cheap and quick fix. 

 

That most of been a sketchy white knuckle drive. 😳

Nice upgrades.

First thing I did last season was repack the bearings. When your entire wheel and hub assembly  passes you up on I- 40 in the middle of AZ it leaves a mental scar in your brain. Hahaha.

I don't use the fuel station so I'm not too worried about it. 

 

Yeah, and it was a two lane road on 95 north at night. No bueno! It was stressful, to say the least.

Last time we went to Dumont, I got less than 5 miles from the house and the pass side wheel well was smoking like crazy...blew the bearings/hub...luckily I was able to nurse it home and get it fixed in a cpl hrs
