Jay!! Glad you got home safe.... That's why we don't wheel alone. Never leave a Soldier behind period. Electrical stuff sucks

But, we had fun regardless. I got all my video saved so I'll upload hopefully tonight.


Seriously, Coming off that boulder onto my Poison Spyder rockers was priceless. Back tire slipped off smashing me down violently. Wouldn't have changed it a bit

I'm suppose to have Sunday and Mondays off but right now we have no other keyholder for the weekend so I have been having Tuesday and Wednesdays off. :-(

This will be it for me for a while. Taking Jeep to Nick and Dave. Outboring shocks, going to 12" shock from 8", taking tri link crap out of back, hi lining back, going to 4" Currie spring from a 5 1/2" RE spring.

Getting it lower and more stable. Sold my Hard top do to this

Not a daily anymore so it only takes money

Yep, we go as a group and leave as a group. Looking forward to seeing the video!

Nice videos! Well, I just replaced my battery and the voltage is about 14.5 while it's running. I'm hoping Dick's will take this $400 alternator back with a minimal restocking fee, I didn't even open the box...

When I first read your post I thought no way it's only the battery, there has to be something else. After a quick google search this is a common problem with OEM batteries

Glad you got it figured out Jay!

It's unbelievable that the battery would be working fine and then - 5 volts. I've run across some crappy batteries in my life but nothing like that! If I would have known they were complete crap I would have replaced it long ago. Later tonight I'll start a new thread to maybe spread the word a little more, only thing is I can't remember the brand??

Gotta give a ton of credit to Dick's Jeep in Hillsboro, they took the alternator back w/o charging me a restocking fee!!
I was half expecting them to say they don't accept returns on electrical parts, or at the very least paying the $40 restocking fee. We'll probably stop there first when the wife is ready for her Jeep.
