  1. So I got the Jeep back yesterday all back to normal, final total was $8300 for all the repairs, had to have the axle housing, both left and right ball joints, caliper, rotor, splash shield (which is rubbing as I drive), and the suspension hub assembly. they also replaced the wheel but didn't go into why, it looked like the spacer just simply failed, so the brief view I got of the wheel when it happened it all looked OK to me. There are two interesting things though, OC Motorsports split my deductable with me so it only ended up costing me $250, don't know if they did that because they didn't check the spacers when they had the wheel off when they installed my AEV lift a few weeks prior or not. I "Think" that this may possibly be written up about it in some magazine, when I picked it up yesterday my SA mentioned that a magazine editor stopped by and was talking to them about it and took some pictures and what not, he stressed to him that they could not mention the shop or anything else, they were busy so I didn't get any more details about it from him. I do know that there are several magazine's based out of Costa Mesa, I'll try to figure out who it might be and keep an eye out for any sort of write up, I would imagine it would be about the dangers of using spacers. Now to take it offroad on some trails this weekend and test the repairs, AND MY NEW LIFT! been wanting to run this one https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/pioneertown-to-big-bear-ohv-route so depending on weather I might just go
  2. DAMN SON! what % are on dirt do you think 30-40?
  3. You really don't need to be jealous of my rig at the moment you know.
  4. Most likely improperly torqued spacers that failed. I had them on when i put larger tires but before i put on my lift. I was driving to work up the 405 north doing about 65-70 and the wheel came completely off. Thankfully, i was able to get over to the side of the road and get a tow truck called, he was able to find the wheel, without any damage. THANKFULLY it didn't jump the median and crash into an oncoming car, or someone didnt hit it while it was laying in the far right lane on the super foggy morning traffic.
  5. What is this put them away? I always end up buying new tools for every project.
  6. Does anyone have a need for 4 stock rubicon rims (with used 32" KO2's) and one steel rim (with a brand spanking new KO2)? If you want them and are in the Los Angeles/Orange County area, they can be yours for free...
  7. Honestly when I saw that you posted this, I truly expected a different outcome from the title.
  8. I like the 4 tire setup and i’m definitely stealing it, I don’t have OBA (yet), but I can still use the 4 tire setup on what I got now. Do you run 30psi on the street? Is that because of the bigger tires? I just got the oil changed and they aired the tires up to 40-41 and I haven’t gotten to airing them down to 37-38 where I normally keep it, but just wondering if I should be going lower.
  9. Is it me or does your test fit picture look like its further to the drivers side and maybe a little bit high? Or is it maybe because the winch opening is offset and makes it look weighted to that side.
  10. An aluminum bumper AND winch for $1200? Is it just a bar of aluminum? The Pronghorn bumper i’m looking at is $1400 all by itself.
