Dr. Evil Looking to possibly re-gear. Can anyone recommend a reputable shop to do the work? I live in Highland.

91yj4banger Let me know. I just ordered a bunch of led lights to test out
10-28-2014 06:25 PM
MikD Not sure, probably be a Friday night as that seems to be working well. I'll post it or pm ya. Night wheelin is a whole different game, fun!

Jklax20 When is the next get together?

MikD So newly cut mud trail 1 jeepers 0! Always good to have a few spots that have never been conquered.
10-23-2014 01:33 PM
MikD I used an adjustable track bar to avoid the drop pitman on my 4".
10-22-2014 05:39 PM
eh384 With my lift (5" maybe 5.5") the drop Pitman arm was necessary to keep the steering components parallel. I was having major issues with bump steering, and along with replacing a bunch of other things like ball joints, shocks, rear track bar etc, it has helped eliminate it. I believe anything less then a 5 inch lift doesn't need the dropped Pitman arm, just a drop bracket.

91yj4banger Was that anyone from here following me up route 9 today? Black COD elite edition with blue halos?
10-22-2014 02:56 PM
00tj2 Eh384, no bump steer with the dropped arm? I realize that the steering setup is a little different between the TJ and the JK but they both have a track bar so it should still apply. Just curious why you went with the dropped arm, I'm trying to get a little more versed in the JK and the mods available to it.
10-21-2014 06:53 PM
MikD They sure did, I'm in the same basic area.
10-21-2014 06:41 PM
91yj4banger Oh ok, I'm in Hopewell. I used to take my quads and lifted dodge over to Maybrook. But they really cut down on that.
10-21-2014 06:39 PM
MikD I'm about 10 minutes west of the Newburgh Beacon bridge.
10-21-2014 06:37 PM
eh384 I just replaced my ball joints, track bars, and added a drop Pitman arm, dual steering stabilizers and some other crap. Now I can properly tackle what 37s should be able to...I found out the hard way at Rausch that I was ill prepared What needs to be changed/added in the jump from 37s to 40s?
10-21-2014 06:36 PM
91yj4banger Lol that is a most decieving looking hole. Where abouts im the HV are you located?
10-21-2014 06:34 PM
91yj4banger I know what you mean. My buddy has a 12 with 36s and just doesnt look right. For now im just looking at a RC 4.5 x series for more flex and more Hp under the hood.
10-21-2014 06:34 PM
MikD Cutting a new trail and this spot has turned out to be far tougher than it looks, that old Yota usually emabrasses our jeeps in the mud (it has high performance rust lightening that allows it to float over most mud).
10-21-2014 06:31 PM
MikD The problem is the JK's are so freakin big they make the damn tires look small!
10-21-2014 06:27 PM
91yj4banger Wow thanks for me making me feel even more insecure about my 32s guys lol
10-21-2014 06:25 PM
MikD Haha yup exactly! We're gonna be here Friday night if you need some dirt.
10-21-2014 06:23 PM
eh384 Attachment 1582865

That's mine on the right, and those are 37s...When I saw this picture, I just knew that the only way to set the world straight was to go to 40s. Then my wife smacked me
10-21-2014 03:07 PM
MikD Haha better grab your wallet!
Hear you on the looking small thing, my 37's look stock to me (wife says it's a guy thing...).
10-21-2014 01:22 PM
00tj2 Mike, after 2 days they started to look small:-( I think I'm already planning for 37's, maybe even 40's. Can you say hello 1-tons!!
10-21-2014 12:31 PM
MikD The 35's should make a big difference on the trail, plenty of ground clearance now!
10-16-2014 11:34 AM
00tj2 Hey guys. So I haven't been around this thread or to mikes in a while but I'm still working out some things on my jeep. Hopefully it should be ready for the dirt/rocks by mid nob but you know how planning goes. Wanted to offer a set of 4 super swamper LTB bias ply in 31x11.5x15 on stock steel tj wheels to someone here. They are great tires with 75-80 tread left and they grip like crazy! I moved up to 35's and no longer need them. These tires are just over 200 bucks each without being mounted so I'm thinking 500 is reasonable?? If anyone wants to take a look let me know, thanks.

Rule18 Hello HV Jeepers, new to this forum but not to the life. Hey MikD, how's it going over there? Hoping to get over there one of these weekends.
10-14-2014 06:41 AM
MikD He's correct you have gotten something wet. May dry out on its own but be better to take some time to find out where the water is. Something has probably dried out and cracked allowing water to cause a short. Take your time with a nice bright light and youll find it.

Something in your ignition system is wet.
