I'm out of guesses at this point.
Since we are on the subject I have a little popping noise from the d/s front when I make a r/h turn.

Lab Lover It's gross and humid here too I thought it would be better at home vs. work, but it's not. It's not supposed to be like this here, this humidity stuff is for the other States! We aren't equipped for heat around here, no AC. Luckily I bought one of those little portable units a couple months ago and I'm solar because this puppy has been going 24-7 over the last week, lol.

If it's moving that much it can cause it. We will check it out tonight.

Lab Lover Well Mike got a couple more projects done on the BB house, now we wait for flooring on the 6,7 & 8th of August. With that out of the way, Amanda can feel free to have that baby any time this week

I have not scheduled anything or made any appointments so my schedule is open. I need to schedule my 30,000 service on the Jeep, but I know as soon a I drop it she will call!

And the strange noise/exhaust leak they couldn't find? Missing a bolt on the exhaust manifold. Right on top. Adrian took off the battery tray and it was plain as day. Even better....

Serg5000 Good morning everyone.

Never really appreciated sleep like I do know.
Knocking out 8-10 hours of sleep at a time. Haven't done that in years.

So what are you having done to the Jeep at Stans???? Inquiring minds want to know
Name sounds familiar. I'm not on there very often and only gone on a few runs with the JK-forum people.

suicideking Dropping off at JPI to finally get my air compressor back. (ARB didn't have a part for it for over a month). Plus hopefully fix my air leak that probably contributed to the air compressor dying.

Then I'm heading up to Big Bear with the family in the Prius to rent a boat and go fishing with the in laws. It was a father's day present for my father in law.

It just feels weird going up there without my Jeep. My mind keeps telling me -- Go on a night run after? Oh crap! No Jeep!

Borrowed my wife's Prius on Friday to get my trailer hitch wiring redone. I entertained myself by waving to a few Prius drivers. Apparently not a friendly bunch...

Also, a 'green sticker' means something completely different to the Prius crowd.

I like your second question. Big bear and no jeep? That is as bad a hotshot and clg82 planning a memorial day weekend camping trip in mammoth with no jeeps....
