    Canít thank you enough!
    Every little bit helps,

    UPDATE! Micah Adams and Steve Knight picked us up from the airport and we met a lunch delay at Yermo, but the guys there were absolutely amazing to deal with and customer service is their specialty.

    My tires were in good shape, with the left front being the only bad one; it has sat flat for some considerable time so we moved it rearward, I have the driver side front hub running hot compared to the others (so I topped off the fluid, how high should it be?) also had a battery terminal failure where someone tried to remedy a connection issue that killed a 2 MONTH old 6tl truck will be getting an oil change and lube tomorrow, Iím just real worried with that front left portal running hot. We are staying in Cali tonight. Just been getting slammed left and right going to get clean and sleepIMG_2660.jpg

    I plan on running I-40 most of the way and will keep updated as possible, if you all donít mind I ask you say a prayer on my behalf as this will require a tremendous amount of luck and answering of numerous prayers.

    Hard to gauge by the picture but if the battery is functional, they make lead cap hats to repair terminals like that.

    Another great help! So hereís the daily dose of updates: I woke up and rode over to Steve Knightís place and began doing more maintenance. Left front planetary hub was chocolate milk water mix, drained it out, flushed and filled with fresh. Topped off the other hubs after insuring they didnít have water in them. Greased the driveline, changed the engine oil and filter all 9 gallons. Checked differentials and they were over full.


    Went and picked up the Gama goat from TMG, and off to kingman we go! We arrived safely just a few minutes ago, truck ran out great, but about halfway in I began to regret not draining the extra fluid off the diffs.... started smelling something like a oil refinery, and pulled over to check it out. Low and behold, the vents for everything is behind the cab and I quickly found the entire rear deck and side of the truck is COVERED in gear oil. It explanded, got whipped up and was burning on the exhaust. Awesome. Proceeded to drive on and make it, were in kingman for the night, will make modifications to the m989a1 tomorrow and load the Gama goat on board. Goodnight yíall!IMG_2669.jpg

    The Chop House in Kingman has a really good steak sandwich.

    I'm glad you got the hub issue diagnosed and resolved.

    What a fun adventure! So if we extrapolate your progression in truck acquisitions you should be acquiring a Mack NO next and then an M125, right?
