WOW! That thing is coming along great. Hope you can make it to another run soon. Jan 1st is going to be a run to Pyramid City off Pyramid Hwy. Weather is looking good and should be a holiday off for you.
Its been a sad, stressful, aggravating, fun, and so many other adjectives, summer. Sad stands out most.
Since December I have finally installed my front anti-rock, I haven't taken it wheeling yet but it was an easy install only took about an hour, and i drives great on the road.
I also installed my tummy tuck. I went with the mid tuck, and the Lo Pro mount initially. I recently switched back to the OEM mount because the Lo-pro was just not solid enough. It allowed the tranny, transfercase and Drive shaft to shift to the right while making left hand turns and making a horrible noise. After I switched back its quiet and solid again. I did however have to space the skid down and inch so now I have a 1.5" tuck instead of 2.5 which is ok.
Install went fairly easy
I had to relocate the two locker pumps. If you buy the bracket from him please if you figure out a better way let me know I just drilled it out and screwed them down.
I also need to adjust my steering the lines red and yellow are the current trackbar and draglink angles the blue is where the drag link needs to go so I have to put the stock Pitman arm on I have sitting next to my laundry basket.
That is all for now. I the near future I am purchasing a full kit of Metalcloak armor. That's arched fenders 6" flares, rocker armor, rear full corner armor, gas tank skid, and steering skid I keep missing their free shipping deals though so it will be a trip down to sac to pick up since I am not paying 300$ to ship them to my house. I also have a monsta liner bed coating kit in black coming it will be here Friday. Work on that can't happen till I get back from the scramble. I am going to do the whole interior since mine is currently wearing through the very thing paint job. Anyone else notice how thin the paint job on the interior at least the driver tub area.
Well for those who are reading, I wanted to say I hope you had a good summer if you are heading up the Rubicon we'll meet you at the dirty dozen. if you aren't have a good rest of the year.
Well I got some work done on he jeep today, with some help from my dad. The reason being I experienced some rear end death wobble on my way home at 12:30 am from Reno. I can say monster has nothing on Death wobble. Even though it didn't really scare me it was just a wow hey stop that! So I decided it was time to install those Curry control arms I have neglected since purchasing them. I got the two uppers on and the lowers on. No pics, right now But I have a video of how bad the others were.
I have my 2"seat risers to install, and I am waiting on two new bolts for the front lower control arms, Then an alignment is due.
just a heads up when you pull the other ones off and look at the bolt holes really good in the stock mounts. If they are square holes or even worn just a little bit get some weld washers from ruffstuffspecialties.com to fix the holes or the new control arms will wobble and loosen the bolts in a short order.
