Sweet ;) something else for my list of wants! After I've ordered my side gears and front shafts to go with my new ARB front locker. Hopefully then my rear ARB locker will be happy.

Friday (bit behind on blogging and build threads!) I installed a pair of prototype TrailGear rear HD half shafts, soon to be available from JimnyBits -







Fitted perfectly first time (I like to use a slide hammer to tap them in, gets the blow into the centre of the shaft)

Sunday... we went to test the new shafts! ;)

Yesterday, my co-driver (read "Winch Bitch"!) Alan and I attended a Punch Hunt down in Hawkstone Park Follies with other members of "Shropshire Lanes" Facebook Group...

Around 20 vehicles, mostly (modded) Land Rovers, a couple of Jeeps and a Samurai...

And... We WON!

Amazed we did as we "only" got 15 out of 20 punches, second place in the modified category went to a Landy father and son team who got 11 punches!, so a resounding win!

Trophy here -



Only bad bit was snapping the front synthetic rope recovering a stricken Disco', ripped his recovery point off first, and then my rope broke on the next pull, but we tied a knot on what was left to the hook, and tightened it and tested it on a tree / strop and carried on...

A win for Team Jimny! And I'm sure those shafts helped!

MANY THANKS to Russ at JimnyBits for asking me to trial the prototypes! :woohoo: B)

Your Jimny is going to be unstoppable now Dave! The Winch Challenge result going some way to proving that!

Well done to you both!

He will have the Jalapeno to contend with in 2017 - I couldn't make it this year due to family commitments.

I won it in 2014, 2015 I bust a Rear prop-shaft after about 3hrs!!

Jalapeño, IISY?

Went to Tong on Sunday - www.bits4vits.co.uk/store/parkwood-4x4-tong/blog_343.html

Good test for the new rear TG HD shafts! :laugh:



But...



Need to pull them back out and see what's going on :(

It's only had two trips since fitting them... albeit a punch hunt and the mighty Tong... :woohoo:

New winch rope arrived today... snapped the old one recovering a Disco' at Hawkstone Park Punch Hunt -



So a new Dyneema 11mm orange rope turned up this morning from Winch-It.com





Fitted, with a new Winch Ball too... the old one is impaled on the old rope's hook, which I've slung in the garage as an emergency spare... it's a bit short now! LOL :laugh:
