Sure. We could even have the kids get together while we do it. Can't say I'd be of any real assistance though . . .

Are you having any problems with a large sailboat being stuck on your hood?

Off topic but y'all are local...
Power steering issue...
Happened late night so I added fluid, no difference. Pulses during turns and started today. Might pull front wheels and check brakes, which need checking anyway, but definitely feels like power steering pump or something there. Where should I start looking and possibly how much $$$$? Thanks forum...it's a 2000 TJ Sahara manual...

Ok..........this may sound silly but it may work.....I had an issue last week that sounds like the same issue you are having. Any time i would take a slight turn it felt like PS was pulling my wheel back to center. My 4WD showed that it was in 2WD but i felt like it was somehow stuck between 2WD and 4WD. So what I did was shifted into 4LO and drove about 500 feet and then shoved it back in 2WD and have not had the problem since. JUST AN IDEA.

Have you tried rotating your spare in at difference positions to see if it make a difference?

I think Page rd is slightly better. There is nice hill that we can climb and you also can go through nice little creek in RTP Trail here.

Hey have any of you guys used or know someone that has the smittybilt hard top hoist that is powered. Seems to be the most affordable priced motorized one but was just curious if that was because it was crap. if not that one what do you guys use? I know it's not exactly the thread but always like to get locals opinions if possible. Thanks in advance.

Hey everyone,

Not sure where you're all located, but there is a living social today for unlimited car washes for 2 months for $47 in Cary. Seems like a pretty good deal. I've spent $20 on one wash before. Could help keep the mud at bay for a bit.
