Ultimate Adventure 2017 Returning Reader: Wayne Lambert – #UA2017Posted in Ultimate Adventure: 2017 on June 7, 2017
Returning to Ultimate Adventure 2017 is Wayne Lambert, one of our participants from last year. Wayne will be bringing his 1971 Chevrolet C30 pickup to play with.
Hoping to repeat the good times, Wayne’s Chevy is kitted out with a big-block V-8 displacing 427 legendary cubes, backed up by an NV4500 transmission and NP241C transfer case with a Slip Yoke Eliminator. A Dana 60 front axle features a Lock-Right locker and 5.13 gears, while the GM 14-bolt rear axle gets a Grizzly locker. A 6-inch Skyjacker suspension and 40-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires provide plenty of clearance under the truck for that heavy-duty powertrain.
A long list of reliability and drivability mods includes—but is certainly not limited to—trainsmission oil coolers, a frosty aluminum radiator, skid plates, and an onboard Powertank 20-pound CO2 tank for tires and air tools.
Wayne’s got plenty of experience off-roading in California, hitting up places like Johnson Valley, Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, and Mammoth. His reliable truck is also capable of a comfortable 75 mph on the highway, making it an ideal candidate to repeat Ultimate Adventure. Be sure to tag along with us using #UA2017 to keep up with Wayne and our other drivers.
