    Just been crazy busy as always. Bought a house in November, so if all my Jeep money went to the kids before...now it goes to the kids and the house. I DO have a nice yard, so at least the kids can drive their jeeps off road. [emoji53] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Delayed carnage as a result of hot-footing it around AOAA the weekend of Ultra4. U-Joint on my front driveshaft blew-up as I was exiting I-80 on my way home from Kaleigh's. Of course this destroyed the ears on the slip-yoke end. Sent a FB message to Adams Driveshaft on Sunday. Much to my surprise, James messaged me back within an hour. We worked out a deal to overnight me a new slip yoke and then send a complete spare shaft via ground for less than a new front shaft normally costs, because I was a repeat customer. Can't say enough about how thrilled I am with their service. When I went to look at the damage the next day I saw this: My upper radius arm tore right off the end. Honestly have no idea how I drove it home since I am three-linked up front with only one upper radius arm. Delayed shit-my-pants over how bad this would have been driving 70MPH on I-80. This is probably what caused the u-joint to blow as the pinion angle dropped and bound-up the joint. Something like this has happened to me before so after being unsuccessful at finding someone available to tow me I got a stock upper control arm and put it in the stock location, which was good enough to drive it to Smashboogie4x4 in Newton. Tom @ Smashboogie made me a beefy new upper radius arm out of .250 DOM and I had Adams overnight the slip yoke to him in an effort to make it to NJJC's Spring Trail Ride at RC last weekend. But it turns out that the CV was screaming and my complete spare driveshaft hadn't arrived yet, nor could I find the right double cardon rebuild kit, so wheeling was off. The driveshaft arrived Tuesday and I had Tom put it on today so my Jeep is ready to wheel.

    More like intelligence and common sense have become obsolete. It's not worth the time or effort to answer any tech questions because you get drowned-out by clueless morons giving ridiculously bad advice.

    I am very big on preventive maintenance. I've been buying wear parts and a few other spare parts over the last couple of months just waiting for a nice day. Today was that day. I noticed a couple of days ago I would get a smell of gear oil once in a while. I gave it a half ass look under and didn't see anything obvious. Once the jeep was in the the left axle was leaking. Pulled the wheels and brake calipers and found the left side axle bearing was toast. Good thing I have a nice supply of parts. I replaced the axle bearing and seal. Serviced both rears, replaced the rear track bar, front brake pads, oil change and lube, rotated the tires. Should be good to go for now. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Everyone stepped it up. Son helped through Easter my wife and my dad went over and did the daily paperwork and I’m fortunate enough to have the same production crew for the last couple years to cover that. It’s kinda been a teaser not working getting closer to retirement

    Hmm, Central Jersey Crew, eh?. Maybe if I have nothing to do I'll see if anyone there has any scratches on their Jeeps. Looks like lots of rain in the coming days though.

    I run the OME IBP shocks (the BP-51's). They're amazing. I have an insane amount of unsprung and sprung weight and it handles it superbly. Being able to adjust for compression AND rebound makes a huge difference. Doesn't feel right? Break out the spanner. I even tune it when I'm fully loaded for a big trip. The difference is huge. I played with the Teraflex shock at their booth. Dennis is an odd guy but knows his stuff. From what I recall, it's only got two adjustments and they're both for compression: a large adjustment and a fine adjustment. I'd rather have a rebound adjustment than a fine compression adjustment. Plus, they're not bypass shocks. I'll be honest, I'll never build another truck without bypass shocks again. If you want to come down and drive mine and play with settings, feel free.

    I didn’t really need new shocks, and I was going to save for something nicer, but the stock shocks have been feeling kinda sloppy lately,... especially with the added weight of the 34”s. So I grabbed a set of the cheap Quadratec Nitro 8.0 shocks on sale for $140 for all 4. The physical size difference is impressive, and they don’t seem to be too terribly made,.... but we shall see. Bump damping is about the same as stock, rebound has more pressure behind it,...... so should be better with added unsparing weights. I review later when they have more miles......

    I can't say that I blame you. The jeep thing has run its course. It's hard to get anyone to go out even for a little trail ride. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    I do. I have a thread on here for it, but I'll have to update to include pics of it being towed. I'll try to do that this weekend. I would love to match wheels and tires to the jeep but the adapters are expensive and I'm not looking to swap the axel, at least not anytime soon. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
