Thanks AzScooter ... great minds think alike, that is the bracket I bought before I knew that BBK was a thing. I knew I wanted to use an SPOD (they are in my neck of the woods) & the twin ARB & I need to relocate my vacuum pump for my bumper so it was a logical choice. Now knowing I want to do bigger brakes I’ll just look at relocating my vaccum pump elsewhere, already ordered the WD bracket for the Twin ARB.

Steven thank you as always you are kind to oblige! You saved me an instal & removal to which I am grateful. Hoping to get through the rest of my research and get started building soon.

Also got a chance to read the Paint Care blog. Great layout!! Tons of useful info, you have inspired me to clay & polish my Jeep before the build starts. Thanks again!

Hi Smitty,

Glad to hear our shared knowledge is helpful

I added a some addition to the clay bar section that should be little more informative. It's a work in progress as you know.

Iíve got the MC bracket installed for my ARB twin and sPOD under the hood. It does get a little dirty, but itís held up well. This summer Iím going to put an air tank and water tank in the back where the stock muffler goes. Will need to put a little removable skid plate there as well.

@u_konreaper Looking forward to seeing the set-up you just described for your Jeep!

I hope you and your Fam are doing well and are enjoying the winter! I recall a pic in your thread with kids aboard and skis on the rack

EBC Yellow Stuff Pads Question

Steven,


Hope you are surviving the chilly Chicago weather! Random question, I know you mentioned in your build thread wanting to cross reference your "new" front (Mopar BBK pads) to an EBC yellow pads part #. I was just curious if you ever got around to that? Thanks again for all your research!

Hi Smitty!

I haven't been on this topic for some time, glad you brought it up.

The Mopar BBK uses the front brakes components from the Dodge Ram 1500. The Mopar part number for the pads which are semi-metallic is #68334862AA (Dodge Ram 2006-2010), or #5143350AC. I say that, because I have both numbers in my files that are taken from the Mopar BBK Kit. Checking, I see that #68334862AA replaces #5143350AC in the Mopar catalog, so let's use #68334862AA.

If we cross reference that with EBC pads for the Dodge Ram 1500 pickup(2006-2010), I get #DP41738R- EBC Yellowstuff 4000 Series.

Now, keep in mind I have not actually tried these. I am still running the Mopar semi-metallic. I hope all this made some kind of sense.

Small upgrade. I have about a year and a half on my current set of wipers and it was time for a new set. I figured I would try an upgraded wiper blade.

These are the PIAA Silicone blades.






As part of the kit, you treat the windshield with a silicone wipe to better repel water. I'll see how these perform and report back. I'm hoping the silicone will work better in the extreme cold.

A quick follow-up regarding the new PIAA silicone wiper blades. These are definitely working better in the cold. Unlike the standard rubber blade the silicone stays more supple and that allows the blade to stay on the contour of the windshield. Super happy with them!

I was up at 6:00 am today and checking the weather, -21. I checked back a half hour later, -24...wow!!! I had to be at the office today, very happy with the way Rubi performed in the extreme conditions. No problems starting up at -24.

Steven,


Hope you are keeping warm in the polar vortex, I guess that's why they call it Chicago Strong ... -14 this morning, still colder than parts of Antarctica, at least its moving in the right direction. Just wanted to say thanks for the info on the brake pads! After posting my question I dug through the internets to find an answer & came up with the same information. I was hesitant to purchase the pads because I wasn't sure I came to the right conclusion so thank you for confirming my research! Pads ordered & I pick up my brake kit tomorrow. Hope to start building in a few weeks ... Can't wait! Always appreciate the help!!

Hi Smitty,

All is well! We'll get through it!

The Jeep performed well under the extreme conditions, very happy about that. When the thermometer gets that far south of zero, machines really don't like it. Even after a good long warm up, nothing wants to turn or roll at all. You just slowly, gently coax them into action.

I'm glad we came up with the same part numbers for the EBC pads I'm going to put that in a file for the future.

Nice to hear your mods are coming soon, you've got to be exited about that! Thanks for the feed back on the blog, greatly appreciated my friend!


-Steven

As I'm sitting here listening to the sleet blow against the windows of my home, I'm missing being on the trails.

From my Instagram feed today...


This was a perfect day on Poison Spider.

Quick update on the new PIAA Silicone Wipe Blades...love em! It's been a pretty harsh winter here in the Midwest. The silicone blade is more supple, and is better at staying in contact with the windshield. The silicone treatment they give you for the glass is also an improvement, providing better visibility with water on the glass. I'm putting these on my recommended list

New Video

I had the opportunity to attend Winter 4x4 Jamboree in Hurricane, Utah several weeks back. What a cool event! We were working the crew at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive which allowed an up close perspective on this event.

I just posted a video I cut, one of many to come that gives you a perspective on wheeling in Sand Hollow. Here is a teaser video of that...



You can view the full cut on the Blog. Enjoy!

Yes, slick rock indeed! Not all Jeeps made it up this. Just watching/filming this taught me a lot about technique, but more importantly the spotting that was getting the drivers up this slippery climb was key. I try and cover that in the full video.

Thanks for the compliment!

And I’m sitting here thinking, well, that looks fun. Honestly, on an obstacle like that, the rain was a serious issue. If it had been dry, they probably would have barely had to throttle up. On a side note, Bryce is an awesome spotter. A good, knowledgeable spotter really increases the chances of success. If you don’t trust your spotter, you can quickly be in a world of hurt.
And Sand Hollow is amazing. The Winter Jam just gets better and better. If you get the chance, it is a rally fun event.

A dream for some, a nightmare for others. It was cool to see the drivers really wanting to get their Jeeps up this. It seemed to me all the experienced drivers really want to tackle the gnarliest obstacles, which is cool.

You're right about the rain being the serious issue, that would normally be not a bad climb. The rain was running a lot of mud, and as the Jeeps were attacking the face of it, it was getting greasier and greasier.

A good spotter is an unbelievable help, keeping you safe and getting the most out of your technique. I'm going to do a video on spotting soon. Being that close to watching two experts work with the drivers revealed a lot to me.

Here's @AzScooter tackling 'Horseshoe Falls' on Sliplock Gulch. You can see how Bryce from Dixie 4Wheel Drive is spotting him, keeping him safe. Pretty cool right?

Not many Jeeps attempted this obstacle, most opted for the alternate. It was pretty damn intimatading just watching. If you listen closely, you can hear someone yell out, "it's ok to open your eyes"

That was so much fun, and it was Great seeing you and Jason again. One thing I have learned is that the guy that gets angry, inattentive or excited is probably not the best spotter. Bryce was great. I have looked at videos of him going up, and he hung more to the right than I was, but hey, the accomplishment is doing it.
If you are anywhere in the Southwest, Sand Hollow has almost as much to offer as Moab, but at better prices. It really is a great place to go.

@AzScooter , it was the best, the whole week I kept saying to myself, I sure hope I run into Scott. Getting footage of you making it up Horseshoe Falls was icing on the cake.

I'm not sure you noticed, Bryce took over spotting you after he noticed your spotter was chatting it up with somebody and not really watching you.

He and I were standing there, with him explaining to me how deceiving the line is on this obstacle, when he stopped talking and jumped down to spot you. You saw how far to the right he was on his climb. Suffice to say, the whole week was a massive learning experience for me, just riding with him or his Dad Milt and watching them work. Sand Hollow should be on everyone's bucket list.

You are too kind. Like I said, it was great seeing you and we really need to arrange an adventure somewhere.

Agree, I would love that, and you could teach me a thing or two with regards to wheeling

Are you heading to EJS this year?

Hi Steven,
Could I ask what fender flares you have? I canít seem to find it. They look killer, especially with the colour match. Lately Iíve been following your granite rubi build as well. Love both of them!
