    2010 JK-R "vaal"

    Tranny POG fixed! Now on to the next issue... 1. Light metallic licking sound in 2WD after putting a few miles on the jeep each day 2. Slight rubbing "feel" in the steering wheel when running full right, and left. 3. Significant obnoxious rhythmic clicking in 4WD when turning... I have friday off and will be investigating more... till then no drive time. Update: This was the front driveshaft failing. Replaced with Adams front driveshaft
  2. I have a 2010 2 door JK-R specs are 18.6 and have run the tank for about 20 miles past the light and put in 16.2 gallons.
  3. Trip Summary Fantastic weather. SonoranWanderer was able to join me for the day. We handed out 2 business cards for the club for fellow Jeepers at Broken Arrow. Lunch on Chicken Point/Broken Arrow was great. Inane clicking sound from front end esp. in turns however we made it back in 1 piece. May have to head to the shop. Pictures

    The new B&M Sport Shifter (#45195) is in! Wow shifting is totally different! It's shorter throw and very stiff and "notchy". No popping out of gear now. if you have a manual and are experiencing "POG" or want to try the sport shifter find me at the next event and give this shifter a try
  6. I will be postponing this and update with a new date shortly
  7. Added some pictures of recent trips to the area top post.

    Good question. I have done some research. One can readily find the Jump out of Gear (JOG) event posted in many sites for the NSG370 6-speed popping out of gear. On some sites its the shifter, in the TSB its the inner boot... Its also my understanding this 6 spd manual relies on the shifter to help keep the transmission in gear. When it pops out under high load it can damage the transmission (you head the "bang" ). It also comes out often under low load and that is annoying off road and more like "sliding out of gear". Feedback from others was address the shifter early to avoid damaging the transmission. For the past year I was very frustrated because I could swear it was in gear and not me failing to put the trans in gear correctly. Many folks recommended the B&N sport shifter and its very popular on jeep sites as well. Its been on order for about three weeks. It should arrive Wednesday. As an aside, I've owned manual transmission cars since I started driving. I have never encountered such a situation before where a manual transmission pops out of gear under load. Kevin

    Observations on the GenRight Bumpers Very Light Weight at 17lbs front and 13 lbs rear. Rear LEDs are very bright Company easy to work with and they are well made Not at all "bold on" ... required hours of cutting and a bolt "tap" ... instructions for someone smarter than me <-- Kevin's handiness is not super on cutting

    Thanks Diane! I am so glad you shared the ORP business card! It was so cool that it was the first trail ride in the new jeep (less than a day old). I enjoy riding and learning with all of the ORP club members!

    After getting rid of the useless chrome step bars and the cold air intake... the next three years were a process of finding out what I wanted from the jeep to make it mine... and prepare it for the type of adventures I wanted to take. I developed a few likes and dislikes and preferences. Concerns: Weight Center of Gravity Range (Small Gas Tank) Dislikes: Canbus Engines Performance Manual Transmission Shifter Death Wobble Likes: Exploring... All Weather, Snow, Sand, Rock, Mud, Cinders Fun Trails -Steep, Narrow, High Solo Trail Rides that typically were a long way off the beaten path Lessons Learned: Suspension not compliant needed lockers to overcome wheel in the air Used high lift to get off rocks/high-centering... Gas Tank Too Small, Range anxiety CB not as useful for communications other than trail rides. With these things prioritized, and confirmed in my mind I began a process of designing the "end state" in January of 2018 as I signed up for the Gunnison Colorado trip. My concerns were prioritized with weight, for example, as a number one concern. That ruled out heavy steel bumpers for a winch or accessories if I wanted to maintain a light weight Jeep etc. etc.
