Sinister6 Last weekend on the way to a trail, I felt a vibration, honestly thought it was the transmission. Well, we got to the gas station till top off the tank and heard a loud thunking noise. Based on the slow pace and loud noise suspected the drive shaft. As I got back into the Jeep I noticed several lugs, bolt and nut, sitting inside the rockring of my beadlock. Looked at the wheel and saw the wheel held on by just 2 very loose lugs!! Everything had been torqued down to 85FT that week. The Lugs pulled through the axle flange. The axles were new Ten Factory shafts installed by a local shop several months earlier. I spoke with Brian at Northridge and he sent the pictures to Ten Factory, 3 hours later I got a call saying they have never seen anything like it and were sending out a brand new set of axles! That IS customer service! My concerns were that they did not know what happened that would cause it. Anyway I suspected the shop did not use the lugs from Ten Factory. But I had to wait until the new shafts arrived to compare the lugs that were pressed in and the ones sent with the new shafts. Sure enough there was a difference, they new ones were shorter and the cap or head is larger. So I went to the shop and addressed it. They of course would not admit it and claimed they did not have that style lug in the shop. Well, we went around and finally came to a mutual agreement.
The new lugs took over 12 ton of pressure to press them in, which is reassuring. I ordered a new TrailReady Beadlock which will be here on Tuesday. I got real lucky that the wheel stayed on until we stopped to get gas. I70 in CO has 8% grades and huge drop offs, the Jeep gods were smiling on us that day!

Sinister6 Thanks for the compliments. The back of the Morion-Teks have hooks the just need to be loosened to get into the back. I guess it's a trade off...access that's too easy means easy for anyone to get into the back, overall, I'm satisfied with the straps.
07-05-2014 11:18 PM
TJZ Why does nobody make a net with access ! Those look great, but again. No rear or side access. It is now my mission to make the perfect cargo nets. I hate my Smittybilt and have no interest in nets that don't allow access. Great freakin dogs though, dude ! Nice rig as well !

Sinister6 Thanks! Siberian Huskies... Kumo (red) Hercules (duh) love riding!

GSXRMAN14 ^Beautiful dogs!!! Are those Huskies or Alaskan Malamutes?

Boys love the cargo net!

Sinister6 Got the rest of the Motion-Tek straps installed. Fit well, look great! Only concern is no snap or easy open for the back.
07-03-2014 11:32 AM
Sinister6 WOW! New Ball Joints made a HUGE difference! Got Jeep up to 70+ front end is smooth!

Nice job! I hope to be able to run 37's in the future.

But I came to your rescue! I may not have been much of a help since I'm a beginner at all of this mechanical stuff, but at least I could cheer you on thanks for being a good teacher....

It may help a little, but the Barnett is a stock plate with a reinforced lip welded on to it. So it's designed to not interfere with stock suspension, my thinking is since it have the Currie steering which is designed to go around aftermarket discovers I should have absolutely no issues with the Barnett.

honestly I do not know but it's basically a stock cover with the reinforced bottom... So very low-profile.

Was it worth pulling out the axle?
I used the two-sided tape that's on them already. I cleaned the area with acetone a couple of times and stuck them on. I also use self tapping screws in areas where the tape wasn't usable.
