I was at Possum Lodge twice watching the show being taped.

That is so awesome! I got my dad a DVD set one Christmas. We used to watch that show all the time!

My husband would be soooo envious of you - he's a huge Red Green fan.

well it looks like when the drive shaft came loose it did more damage than i thought as today as i was on my way to work something in the rear axle went. here is what it is doing i put it in gear and the driveshaft turns but the wheels do not so i'm assuming the gears are gone now i'm still trying to figure out what size gears i have. i have looked at the front diff for a tag but can't find one. the rear diff has an arrow pointing at a 3 and then a ring of bumps with an arrow in the middle that arrow going clockwise is pointing almost halfway between the fifth and sixth bumps. now i'm thinking that means i have 3.54 gears or am i completely off.

Dude, sorry to hear that...sounds like a ring gear! Im not a drive train expert but If I recall a 3.08:1 was standard but a 3.54:1 was optional on trailer package equipped and high altitude cars. I found that out when I swapped the wrong rear end into one of my Eagles years back.

haven't posted on here in a while. other than replacing the axle shaft and hub as well as changing the fluid in the rear diff back in May i haven't done much to Eagle Eyes. i do plan on doing a couple of things in the next week or so on both Eagles, weather and all else permitting.

Kind of looks like my SX/4 after I hit those two deer, minus the resulting body damage.
