I'd like to go, if you'll have me. My 7 year old will come with me, he won't let me leave him behind.

I love that stuff, which is the reason why I have the $90 Discount Tire specials.

Did you ask them to expedite it? I sure hope you get it!

Do you think your broken one could be repaired? Even if just for a spare?? It looks like maybe you can just replace the end with the broken bolt. One more question, what brand was it?

Will with Metalcloak called me this morning to thank me for my purchase and said it should ship today. Should be good to go.

I could source a new joint for the track bar but it's an aftermarket bar and i'm unsure of the brand, size and thread pitch at the moment.

I was thinking the same thing. I'd also like to either start or end the day with Bates road. My track bar shipped today. The axle side of my track bar came apart just fine after i introduced my sawzall. That bolt would not come out. Got the mounts drilled out, new track bar will bolt right up.

That's a crappy feeling, my wife always wonders why I spend so much time lying under the jeep. About 6 months ago I did some damage while screwing around at lunch, that's why I asked.

The track bar is oldest part under my jeep, most everything else that matters is new. I try to maintain my rigs well.

Man that was fast! Less than a week?? The only issue I have had with MC is the waiting, if they have improved that then they are doing really well.

Here's some pics we got from today. Was a good run, we ran Firebreak 5, Airplane hill filters, Rocky uphill and Rock garden.


Rock of doom on Firebreak 5 claimed a spot on Jason06rubi's tub.











After Rock garden we were planning to run Waterfall then Bates road and call it a day, however, Jay ( mckey73 ) had his alternator ( we think ) go bad on the top of Rock garden. I towed him off to hwy 6 then Jason and Jay went to find cell service. Jay now has a AAA subscription ( good to have ). Hope you get the Jeep up and going soon.

Jason, be sure to upload the video of FB5. We had a good time

Jason, James - I can't thank you guys enough for your help today. Not only did you guys show me around the TSF but you also helped us to get home. If this is an accurate sample of the people here in Oregon I think we'll have a great time here! The old joke that AAA was for old people has finally hit home, I'm old. The wheeling was totally rad, the company was great but it stunk to have the electrical gremlins put a damper on the day. Luckily my plastic Jeep didn't melt (2X).

We'll have to figure out a time for me to treat you guys to dinner!

Since I'm thanking everyone the Hillsboro towing guy was awesome, and he showed up really quickly.
