I have some things to try out. Need a nice easy run with a few stupid off shoots
I did it with Chad last sunday with my stock jk. I did get hung up on some rocks and he had to winch me off. If I remember right there were some more difficult off-shoots that you can do. I wouldnt make it with mine though.
besides, Ed likes the way coil hoops look.. It really is all about making the oldguy happy
I'd tell you what would make the oldguy happy but I would be 86'd from the forum...
Yeah, I would love to see coilovers sticking out through your fenders but I know it will never happen... spoil the lines
If you want to do something closer to home we could do a gulch or two, trails will be clean but I can't make any promises about the goat path getting in there.
Right now my draglink is jammed into my trackbar, can't figure out how I managed to do that...and no comments from the peanut gallery... My new one will be here tomorrow and since I've already blown my alignment I'm going to stuff some 3/4 inch spacers under my springs while I have it tore up. I'm dismantling the whole steering linkage to make sure I didn't screw anything else up.
I also need to shorten my front lower links but the bungs won't be here till thursday, if I'm lucky, so I think I'll wait on that if I'm going to be going out this weekend. Then I can realign the stupid thing again because I'll be moving my front axle back about half an inch.
So if you can find a calendar for the current year and can figure out what day you actually want to go let me know
I hate doing front suspensions, I really do. In fact I really, really, really hate doing front suspensions. I had my entire steering linkage busted out to components today all over the garage floor. I could not find one thing wrong, every tre was fine. There is something wrong, I know there is, but can I find it? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
So I decided to shelve it and drop the axle to put in the spring spacers. Now I suppose if I used a spring compressor it would be a lot easier but do I do that? No, of course not, that would be too easy
So tomorrow I put the tires on and align it, sorta kinda. Then I can start on the rear suspension. Oh, boy, I can hardly wait... Actually I'd do five rears to one front and be happy.
I am very seriously considering taking up golf, or croquet, or bridge, or shuffle board, or ....
The only think funner, would be to add RUST to the equation. It's cheaper to toss your golf clubs in the drink on a bad day, than run the J into a rock bed in the creak. just sayin.. I GOT IT!!!!! a new game, we hit rocks with golf clubs , then go chase em with the 4x4's. last Jeep standing wins
