Well, UN-planned upgrade. Found a Lower Control Arm Bracket broke off on DS front. So I just replaced with aftermarket brackets and skids...
I guess better now than on the trail, but it's been one thing after the other lately!!

Maybe your weights fell off the wheel or inner rubber causing it to become unbalanced? Unless you used the sand bags? Sucks man, hope you guys get all your stuff figured out. Seems like we spend a lot more time at the shop than on the trails. LOL

Been wanting to treat the frame with a rust inhibitor and undercoating. Well, finally got it DONE! Frame looks great as do sliders. Nothing like breathing in paint fumes.

Thanks! Rust reformer first then undercoating. Bedliner probably would've held up better however it's rough texture, I felt would hold more fine dirt.

It will. We have that in our service truck beds (utility bodies) and that is a to get off once it dries.

not so sure that bedliner would've been better. in my experiences it doesn't hold up too well (the parts that get rock rash, the bedliner just peals right off)...

so the rattle can technique would be the preferred method. it's how i touch everything up....

ID:	923738 I used the rattle can bedliner on my Bealock rock rings... This was basically last seasons worth of wear... Actually held up pretty good considering the beating it takes. Once I tear the wheels down this Spring I'll rattle can the rings again.

This is after my Re-gear.... They pull covers, do a visual inspection to make sure everything seated well stayed seated put the covers back on an added lube. Basically the shop said if I do 1000 miles and have a visual inspection done they'll cover any issues I have with them... Beyond the typical 60 day warranty the most shops give. It really was a no-brainer!

Wow yeah that's a great deal + awesome customer service. 60 day warranty is wacky though. At least carry a 1-year, dang. Lol

Yes great customer service! There was an issue with my locker light coming on and blinking. They thought it was a actuator switch, initially they said they'd cover the labor if I paid for the switch. However once they got torn apart again they realized it was an issue with the reassembly admitted to it, fixed it, didn't charge me a dime! Could've very easily charge me the 70 bucks for the switch and kept the truth to themselves! Definitely earned my business!

What did you do to prep the frame for painting? Also, did you paint it while on a lift?

I pressure washed the frame, the next morning I wipe the light dust and dirt off of it and then just sprayed it. No lift just crawled under it and sprayed it down. LOL probably should had a mask on... I figure if I do this every year should be able to keep the rust at bay!

I went to Predator. I tried several other shops in town for little jobs... And PREDATOR has been the only one that I didn't have to bring the jeep back to have the work redone.

Yeah it looks like the Maxxis Creepy Crawler it's one of the few 37" tire that comes in a 16" wheel.
Now the big decision is do it this year and sell mine or wait till mine wear out?
How's Breck Andrew?
