 Quick Maintenance

Because things can break so fast one should make sure everything looks OK.  Some of us hit the trails hard so it is easy to remember to look for things like cracks in the frame or brackets and loose nuts.  Even those of us who don’t hit the trails hard need to check that stuff too as wash boarded roads are just has hard on vehicles.  Look for small cracks in the welds, frame, anything metal.  Check the torque specs on suspension bolts.  One easy way to see if things have moved is use a paint pen and mark a spot on bolts and the frame and if they don’t line up anymore something has moved or is lose.  A few minute inspection can save hours out on the trail in recovery or repairs.
