I just have so much crap to do I haven't even been able to start on the outboarding of the rear shocks. I have now developed front right axle clunking when I was out at calico over Thanksgiving weekend. Just more to deal with.

Reave That measure shouldn't pass. Body armor can't be used to kill anyone unless you bludgeon them to death.

I don't have a clue what you just said but I am guessing it has to do with AR's

I know right. ..since the wife bought me the new 2015 GMC 4x4 Canyon I've been lurking on the Colorado / Canyon forums...you should hear these guys speaking the gospel about a truck that's not even out yet (at the time) just quotes from the Web and it's reviews. Now that the truck is out there's only a handful of people who even have one..I just set back and laugh at all the talk.

Yeah, where ive done alot of indepth tinkering with my jeep, its made some amazing strides on the handling department. Ask doug his rode with me. Feels planted and youll start sliding out of the seats before you feel the body roll...... This is no sway bars either. I started getting funny wear up front turns out my ball joints were going is why i was asking

The same guy that just got done trolling the comments of a news story about government spending is now getting in arguments on here about gear ratios and tire size choices. Both subjects he knows nothing about, but the Internet gave a voice to this 45 year old basement dweller who only takes a break when his roommates/parents call him up for dinner. So that's what it is. Just got to sift through the idiots to find credible sources. Even Pirate has its fair share of idiots, probably even a higher amount because for some reason people believe the garbage spewed on there as gospel. I very rarely allow myself to get drawn into an argument over this crap, but it stills happens sometimes. There are a lot of good folks on here, just got to tune out the bad ones. If anything, it helps you to identify who NOT to go wheeling with, so you don't find yourself on the trail with a guy that just blew out his tire sidewall (which surprises him because the forum told him that was the best tire) then uses his Scissor Jack stacked on three rocks to lift from his frame (because the Internet said he needs a highlift and his hasn't come in from 4WD parts yet). When you do pass by this guy, don't bother asking if he needs help because he knows everything already. Just politely tell him to lift from his axle so he isn't having to fight with axle droop, and that stacking a scissor jacks on top of rocks to get extra height is dangerous. Drive away happy/saddened because you just stopped naturally selection from claiming another victim.

I think they have a new jeepers convention on forums and decide collectively what are the do's and don'ts when it comes to wheeling and how to setup a rig. Like i think there is a new jeep owner bible that says you have to spend this much then you have this much say.
