Does the fire suppression only activate when you pull the handle, or are their heat/smoke sensors too?

I see that you are running a LP front. Maybe I missed it along the way, but why not HP? It's obviously holding up well, just curious. Also, is that a TG trunnion eliminator that broke?

Yes, pull handle activation only.

I have never really had any issues that made me upgrade to HP diffs. If I can get a good deal on a set I will upgrade.

Yes, TG trunnion eliminator pin. That pin is about 5 years old.

Fluids, nuts and bolts.

KOH 2022 was awesome! We got the shocks and air bumps dialed in with a lot of help from ADS, Ruffstuff and my crew. We worked through some valve cover venting issues and were ready. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 go! We were off to a good start headed to Turkey Claw. 4693 got stuck in front of us, we tried to go around, got stuck and passed by everyone. We worked our way to pit 1 with no issues then off to Cougar Buttes. Worked our way through the rocks and headed through the desert back to pit 1 again. The truck had no issues going into pit1 the second time, we took fuel and headed out. My co-driver missed the right turn back to Hammer town and we started lap 2 by mistake. We made our way to Spooners got stuck, realized we DQed, got ran over by some 4500 cars then made our way out. Got the truck to the start of Outer Limits, linked up with a broken 4800 car and drove out to pit 2. Found our front right shock was broken, removed it and drove back to HammerTown.
The shock is being rebuilt by ADS, the truck is going to get a new rear axle housing, the shock mounts are going to be redone, we have some comms issues to work out and I am looking for a new co-driver. Overall great time with some great people.

Don't fu.ck up when you're co-driving in the 4653, y'a might get dropped in the desert !

:rolf:







Seriously, bummer it turned out the way it did, but glad to hear you had fun. Stock class is my favorite to root for !

More pictures from KOH. The truck is now black and the front shock mounts are being redone to maximize the full travel of the ADS shocks.
