Mounted 5 33in simexs on beadlocked rims. Rims were second hand so had to clean all the bolts and tape about half the threads.

Out of 160 holes about 20 had stripped threads so had to get a few longer bolts with nuts.

Fitted an auto locker to my spare rear diff head which will replace the LSD.

Worked on the track on the way out and then headed to the lake for a play.

Did day trip into Mavora up to boundary hut, Great to see it repaired and back to its former glory but the idiots that wrecked it have really damaged the reputation of 4wders. The visitors book is not that encouraging (idiots wrecking it for the rest of us)

Hope they're caught and the book chucked at them, as it is a great place and it would suck if access was lost

Had a good day out at Waitati Mud plug.. managed 2nd place in super modified and then won the open round. Pretty happy considering we nearly trailered the truck before lunch with a faulty carb and a flat tyre.
Chewed through 25 litres of Av gas just in the morning round.. Now have broken the trans somewhere as it lost the last little bit of fluid as it limped onto the trailer.

My kids got a few vids, I got another couple. I had my 4 y/o and 6y/o for co pilots for first few hazards.
I might get round to editing them later...
