    Was wheeling yesterday on the club run, sustained some damage, bent the box sides up a bit, pushed in the pass side door pretty good, got the drivers door as well, bent the front bumper a little bit, pass side door wouldn't open from the outside and the window fell down inside, also tore off the front flex line from the caliper, Tom had met me and brought a new flex line for me , so parking lot fix and braking was optimal again. I had kinda widened the trail with the truck, or maybe narrowed the truck to fit the trail. Not going to fix the box sides, where they have bent, seem to not contact as many things now, also bent the exhaust up a bit too,

    Good video I am a fabricator and love to weld I think the best advice I can give is the more comfortable the position you are in the better the weld not only that but the old saying for mig is clean and close the material needs to be clean and your ground should be close to the work. Stick you can get away with the metal being a little dirty but even a bit of paint will make for a bad weld.

    The 100 month Kirkland battery died on me yesterday, litteraly on the next crank after the club run....lucky it didn't die on the trail! 🙂 Since it was 16 months old and less than 36 months, it was a straight refund. Gotta love Costcos warranty!

    Matt took us through Mt. Uniake to Tantallon as the bird flies, which turned out to be some of the best wheeling I've been on. There were tight trails, gnarly off camber hills, ruts & rocks, mud holes, crazy drop offs and off cambers sections. Some rigs made it with broken 4WD, others with only 2 wheel brakes. What a day, thanks Matt!!!

    For our November club run we'll be heading to Ellershouse where we'll be doing some trail exploration. The target trail has been run once before, and has some tight and technical sections, so hope for the best and expect the worst. Usual club rules apply.

    So much like. I have a set of old Power Wagon hood emblems in my shop that my Pop owned. It's always been in the back of my mind to acquire an old Power Wagon to put them on.

    It got a bit wider after I had gone through, the only spot I think would give you issues , but you might be able to go through, is through the mature trees, and the way they are staggered, but the trail was straight .

    Sounds sweet! 318? 360? Transmission? Can't wait! My bro has an ex-army Dodge 5/4 ton, if you know what those were. 318 manual, lifted, Dana 60 front, Dana 70 rear if I recall correctly. There's a couple good pics on here or Fb. Orange, doing a mild wheelie!

    Welcome to the forum. Coffee night is a great way to start, and we have a monthly club run too. Got any details of your rig? Photos?

    IDK if it is full size friendly. Matt's rig had some damage by the end of the day. But IDK if that was as a result of clearing, so he may have made a Burb sized trail for ya.....Matt ?

    Saw the concrete last night on the way home from coffee. That area was becoming a mess and I don't blame him for shutting it down. I'm assuming at this point the impact is just that area.

    I've heard of flux core with gas but I think for the most part it is limited to very specific applications, not to say you can't do it anytime you like but most people don't. Flux core is great for welding outdoors where wind would blow away your shielding gas but other than that MIG is the way to go, far less clean up.
