A glamor shot, in the same place as last years, right before the Golden Crack. Just at a different angle.

Grand County? Yeah, this place is pretty grand.

Moab is one of those places where you can wheel it every year because every time you go it's different. The scenery and the food is great. Great place to go with friends.

Driving home from vegas the other day and I was greeted with a pretty sudden loud and shaky vibe, followed by a pretty big bang. I thought "damn, I blew a driveshaft". Turns out, I uh, didn't blow a driveshaft:

Soooo, yeah. The 247J decided to blow up. I think it's the TC that went and not the driveshaft because the diff yoke is messed up pretty badly, too. It feels to me like something happened with the TC, which caused the the ujoint on the front driveshaft to snap, or the yoke to snap.

Dropping the skid plate gives out a whooooooole lotta metal shavings.

I go to Flagstaff to grab another 247J for the time being later this week. In the not-too-distant future, I'll make for a 242 swap.

Wow, I'm sure that was a pretty good scare. I'm glad you're ok. Parts can always be fixed and replaced: not people.

 

Also, glad to see you have a good attitude with the Caddyshack joke! :D

Yeah, I only plan to run this "New Used" 247j for a few months, while I save up for a 242 swap. I already have all the parts I need on order to get 'er back on the road!

Well, the "new" 247J is in, it's just a matter of getting a new front driveshaft. No picture sadly, since my driveway is still pretty well soaked in dirt and TC fluids, I can't get down there unless I expect to scrub up afterwards. Almost back on the road!
