Fortunately there was no spring in the clutch pack because it could have been worse. Topped it off with AMSOIL synthetic gear oil, should be ready for another 150K miles at least.

Dang thing is heavy, sucks not having a lift.

less than 4 years and 60K miles later, getting same symptoms again and having a truetrac installed and entire rear rebuilt in 2 weeks.

Sweet. I notice your exhaust has had the restrictive Y pipe corrected to a normal size pipe. Something I have yet to do to mine.

Got the Ex back over a week ago and never bothered to post pics...

Had it down in the pit today sighting in my new .223 and after almost 60mm of rain the past two days just about got it stuck. The mud flaps up front really help to keep the mud off the body (as they should I guess lol) .223 shoots like a dream and the Ex didn't get stuck. A good day.

Took the Ex on a 300 mile trip to pick up a used trailer I couldnt pass up. First time towing with her and she did great.

How heavy is that trailer? Hard to tell from my phone's screen but your front fenders look a bit high. Are you using a weight distribution hitch?

P.s. Nice Ex!

Yes the front was up alittle. The only hitch I had was a aluminum 6" drop. it wasnt enough drop for sure. The trail was 24 x 8.5 nothing heavy. I'm looking at weight distrbution hitchs for my trip this summer and some other goodies.
