This wasn't a problem either

Rear tires had less than 200 miles on them. Still lots of people claim that MTR's need breaking in.
I haven't had a problem with them, they have worked very well on the trails I ran with them if you keep sliding of a rock you aren't in the right spot on it
Ya, it was a couple different spots and it didn't seem to matter where we were on them. It only happened at the start of John Bull, then it was fine. No big deal

This R always goes out and votes. Too many gave it all so I could live a life of working, BBQ'n, 4Wheelin and beer drinking. So I vote and do my jury duty.

When the country needs me to do more. I'll do that too.

Ironically this year the D has vetoed restrictive gun legislation and the R says "If you don't want sensible gun control. Don't vote for me." Huh?

However I'll be there to vote on the propositions.

Could it be they just take a bit to soften up? Maybe the layers of powdery dust added to it.

Have done JB on 32's several times without grief. So save the money for gas to go wheelin and have fun. Above all do not get frustrated when you get stuck. Back out of it and find a different way to tackle the obstacle

aw12345 Anyway today's tinkering

Nothing special, took me to long, but I am liking it. Two lil side panels and it has a dash that's good enough for the gurls I go with.

Usually I'm the one saying lets upgrade, haha. Now I sound like one of "those" wives. Truth is, I want more lift on mine and we're talking about buying a bigger boat this spring so Jeep budget has been given a cut by the Queen

We ran Gold Mountain and John Bull Saturday. It was a perfect day weather wise and only saw two other Jeeps on the trails. Mike got hung up more than ever this time, nothing major, but his rear diff kept catching. He was getting a little aggregated and I saw dollar signs flashing before my eyes as he was talking upgrades & 37's

As we loaded the Jeep on the trailer yesterday we noticed one rear shock has leaked and looks to be completely shot, the other doesn't look to great either. They are the ones the original owner had on it, so not sure what they even are. Mike has too much crap in the back of that Jeep, he has too lighten it up a bit.

Serg5000 Good afternoon everyone.
Started a new shift at work this week. Sleeping nights is so much better. It's amazing what our bodies can handle. Sleeplessness, physical abuse, you name it. I landed a 4-10 shift. Hopefully I get to keep it for a while this time.

Alot of vehicles came from the factory like this. Using all tie rod ends you normally have a dead spot in your steering. Which is why I used a heim for the connection of the draglink and tie rod. There is no dead spot. I talked with ruff stuff specialties at the offroad expo and they are coming out with a different way to mount it. Its still a few months out, but looks kinda like an inverted T tie rod but uses heims.
