Did you ever check your axles for adjustment movement? And the torque wrench from Harbor Freight. My axles are holding good so far.
We are back in BC for the last 3 weeks to do the import and registration, one more week here and then we head south again to WA Olympic Nat park then on to Oregon then who knows where.
Yes I had movement about 5/6mm so I reset them and installed 8 bolts, horizontally thru the plates and torqued up the others, that was 4000 miles ago and everything seems okay tread wear even. I also sprayed all the metal work underneath with chasis paint, looks so much better.
I don't like all that cheap corrugated plastic underneath nor the plastic straps on the dump valves, I need to give that some thought. I would like to make some aluminum brackets for the valves and support that plastic in some way so that it does not belly so much.
I checked with one harbor freight on our way back to BC they only had small ones to 80ftlbs, I want the half inch drive one so will be calling in all the harbour freights on the way south. $79 here in BC!
