    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Yikes! :oops: I dont know who conned you into doing that, but I'd be cutting ties for the sake of my health if possible 😅

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Fortunately for me, I was off work on Tuesday and woke up to about 10 inches of snow everywhere. Made some coffee, unhooked the battery tender, did a quick fluid check, and spent the day driving Daisy around on the drifted over back roads with my fiancée riding shotgun. She was very happy with...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    That trailer is barely road-worthy. It spends most of its time being drug through the mud in the woods or creeping down back roads so the brakes are far from working. I keep up on the bearings and hydraulic system only at this point. Finally got sick of replacing broken taillight lenses, wiring...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Got a lead on some firewood from a friend (pictured in his selfie) who was clearing fence-rows with an excavator. I immediately loaded up the skid steer and ended up bringing 4 heavy dump trailer loads of logs home last weekend. For being basically stock, Daisy was definitely working...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Haven't really had the time to sit down and update, but as soon as I finished replacing the front brake lines in the middle of last month: I modified my tool rack to fit a mid-sized chainsaw. Basically just cut the brackets out of the center of it so I could fit an appropriately sized piece of...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Well after replacing quite a bit more brake line than originally planned and doing more inspecting, we're on the road again. Did a small 15 mile trust building back road run with the new differential locker in the front. Happy to report absolutely normal handling with the transfer disengaged...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    I cant take credit for building it. Along with a ton of other useful things, it was in the barn when I bought the place. It was the perfect height. Got one set of U-Bolts started before I jacked the other half up and did the same. I spent a few years working in the grass/dirt before I went the...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Well Daisy is back on her feet again after a small delay. Not having brakes for now meant that I didnt do much more than a lap around the yard with the new locker. No difference in steering to report as of yet. Need to buy and run some new brake line for the front axle, do a fluid/bearing check...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    If I wasnt doing a multitude of home renovations at once, I would've loved paying for a locker on a switch. I'm apprehensive about how it'll drive honestly. There were enough folks that said it unlocked reliably when not under power so I wung it based on that. I'll certainly report on how...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    When I removed it and tore it down, I used a skid steer. I lifted the center section out and back in with a chainfall. Today I set the fully assembled axle on a 3 wheeled triangle dolly (using the old in-ground hoist) for reinstallation. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Well after a huge bathroom renovation, I'm finally able to work on the Deuce again. Front axle has been reassembled with the Detroit Locker. Hoping to get it hanging under the truck by the end of today pending on some replacement brake lines. Firewood season is too close for comfort without her...

    Detroit locker is on it's way. Along with two new carrier halves...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    That's not scarring in the housing, that's a debris pile :-? We were "rescuing" an abandoned vehicle from a ravine with the winch and I put the truck into reverse on uneven terrain at the same time. A couple axle hops and the spider gears came apart accordingly. Ill admit it wasn't my brightest...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Finally went after the front axle issue that I earned at Haspin about 5 weeks ago. I had to use some special tooling to remove the axle shafts, but otherwise it was a straight forward disassembly. Parts are on order.

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    My first Independence day with a Deuce. Used Daisy to tow a junk motor home to a friends house on the morning of the 4th so we could blow it up and get his annual party started. Didn't imagine that she would end getting so much attention for the rest of the day/into the night from a majority of...
