I learned how to rebuild a transfer case today. Or at least how to tear one apart, add a Terra Lo, and put it back together again. WooHoo!!! Ron, you make it look effortless. Great job man.

Very happy for you Lorie! I can't wait to see you with your new TC wheeling. Although you always wheel with a smile, I'm sure your maiden voyage with all this new stuff will be an extra special smile--I hope to be there to see that.

Thanks B--- My Joanzie is being transformed into a Rubi plus some. If you thought I was in love with her before....Lord have mercy..all I can see is a "test drive" out to the Hammers I just want to try it out a little Nothing too hard core....I have a feeling ART may want to take me And of course, RON is like " yeah baby, let's go!! "

Motino wash at the east side of Big Bear will be good practice, Clawhammer, Sledge Hammer and Chocolate thunder next.
Friend of mine just took his lil white TJ up Chocolate thunder a few weeks ago.
Oh yeah see those metal cloaks shine

That looks like a lot of fun Art, you think a TJ Rubi on 33s could do that trail?

For anything Hammers you would pretty much want 35's
Y'all would have fun on Motino wash. Cougar Buttes is a bit more do able also.

Yea Art.. Barbie Gurl wants a piece of that. Let me get a run in or two to get used my new Joanzie, but I think with my new set up, I'm going to want to hit that. As long as I'm not going to Offend any boys out there in Their playground We both know how that goes from time to time...

From everything I've read about Cloaks, I won't have to do anything but enjoy all the extra clearance other fenders don't have on top of the tire and behind it Maybe that's why they're So expensive.....they're going to be worth it

Just spoke to Metalcloak...guy says I won't see them for another 2 weeks.

Looks like it's just the 8.8 going in Saturday.

No. I sold them all on line. I had four 2" spacers and two .75" spacers. They sold fast and I got my money out of them.

So the good news is, if you/Lori don't like them they are easy to sell.

He went ahead and ordered a kit I went outside and looked at my rig and and didn't see it, but looked at the pic again, and could see what he saw..

Lorie, all the same stuff and she's dipping in the front like that? I never saw it before, the wait on metal cloak sucks, but its totally worth it.

Looks like the rear wheel well needs a bit of trimming or it will start munching those pretty tires

I don't think it is "dipping" any more than before, I just think it is way more noticeable now with the bigger tires.
