Started the pre-trip prep by breaking the weld holding my orbital input spud to the steering column connecting u-joint.

Turns out the CRES 303 Flaming River U-joint that specifically says not to weld it, really means it. Even using 316L and 308 filler the repair weld still cracked out. So I drilled it and pinned it.



My jeep Thursday night. Note the missing trackbar bracket.



Camp Saturday morning



Moonrocks was covered in snow -







Full throttle crawling.





Opps. 300M U-joint, on 35" tires, in the snow, with a 4.0L motor.



Pulled the drive slugs, drove over to funny rocks.







Camp sunday morning.
