  1. Looks like I snapped a cv while I was testing the 4wd. I'll try to meet y'all out there once I put a new one in.
  2. Hi all, happy to announce we'll finally be able to make it this year. We won't be camping, but we'll be there for the rest!
  3. Yikes! That would have been nasty if it let go completely... I've still got the build fresh in my brain so shoot me a message if you run into anything. It's kinda funny since I'm writing the build post for it right now... Just out of curiosity, do you need the 16 or the 24mm input bearing on yours?
  4. Hey WJ folks, We're trying to get a bunch of WJs from around Arizona to meet up for one epic trail run and to see some old friends and make some new ones. It doesn't matter how built, from stock to rock crawler, if it's a WJ, bring it out! Shoot me a message here for more info or you can join the AZ WJ group on Facebook.
  5. Thanks y'all! It was indeed a great one!
  6. Thanks! No Magic shocks though, that's just how my simple brain functions. I wasn't counting the shocks in that equation. I plan to make/relocate the brackets at some point, so they were out of sight, out of mind. Thanks for pointing it out though. I should reword that bit to make more sense...
  7. That looks like a great find! The superglue on all those other trucks' dashboards is because the plastic Dodge used during those years was notoriously brittle. Be careful if you put a radio in it! I find it so hilarious and awesome that y'all have a build thread here that's only one page long, lol! (I'm sure that won't last long though...)
  8. Hey everyone! I recently had the chance to build and install a 4 link on my WJ... It was an awesome experience, and was my first project of this type and scale. Here's a link to the build...
  9. Back in my tuner days, we used to fill the motor mounts with seam sealer to strengthen and stiffen them. The urethane idea is just the same. Should be a good mod. I'll be interested to see how they last compared to the stock mount.
  10. Likewise, it was good to see you again too ksmith! We need to get the clubs together for a run soon!
  11. I'm not totally sure. I'm still thinking on how I'm gonna fix these. What I will probably end up doing is moving the latches to the bottom of the drawer so that the latch slides into the spare tire cover or a catch attached to it somehow. The thinking is that I want the latch to slide down to lock, so, whatever I have to do to make that work. To clarify a bit, I actually rather like the latches themselves, they've got a chunky, tough feel. It's just how I've got them mounted that's poorly designed.
  12. It's been forever since I've posted any updates on my rig here, and it feels like forever since I've seen everyone! Fortunately we got to meet up with The Bradywagons for breakfast a few weeks ago, and it was great to hear about how the club is doing! At any rate, the last great thing I've had the chance to work on was the drawerset in the back of my Jeep. Check out the build thread here. And here's a couple teaser pics:
  13. I think I'm quite jealous of that rear bumper/carrier! Please post about these bumpers after you put some miles on them. I'm sure a lot of us are really interested.
  14. This Jeff dude sounds awesome! Can I meet him? I've got some things I need done on my dub too! Once we get a few bushings replaced and get the new link pins for your discos, I'm confident you're gonna love your rig all over again. It just takes some time (and $$) to get all the kinks sorted out. Maybe we could organize a wrenching party for that weekend of the 22nd, since we'll be down around the ORP part of the world anyway.
  15. Thanks y'all! I was hoping we could make it last weekend, but there was just too much to do. See you on the next one!
  16. That's a LOT of Jeep parts...
  17. It's really coming along nicely, Mike. Don't forget to budget for some skid plates/underbody protection too.
  18. That's weird... We don't talk much though. They called the cops on me when I was installing my lift, haha.
  19. Thanks! They're 265-70-17 or about a 32x10.50. I've been really happy with them so far. They've got over a year and 17000 miles on them and have only worn about 1/16".
  20. Welcome to ORP Mike. This group of folks has been very helpful since I joined (wow... almost two years ago now) You won't get any of that JK Experience nonsense, meaning that nobody is going to push you to break your rig, and everyone is very helpful and understanding when it comes to all different vehicle and skill levels. Just watch out for George's cowboy coffee. That stuff is strong enough to run your Jeep.
  21. Much to my surprise, I was the lucky winner of the 2013 Holiday Survival Kit. "What's in the box!? What's in the BOX!?" Fortunately, no heads... The booty. Emergency Camp Stove with Fuel Tablets Gerber Gator Jr. Tonto blade with Fire striker Mini LED Flashlight Emergency Food and Water Rations (Gotta be sure to keep an eye on expiration dates!) US Army FM21-76 Survival manual Thank you to everyone at ORP for such an awesome prize! If you need me when the zombies attack, I'll be around.
  22. This is the first thing I've ever won. I'm quite stoked. Thanks everyone!!!
  23. Doing pretty well, thanks for asking. Just got the new 242 swapped in and I'm getting used to having control over what my rig is doing, haha. Now I'm just trying to figure out what to upgrade next. I'm at the point where I need to decide if I want to go higher or just improve on what I'm running right now. The NAU 4x4 club is ready to take off. We submitted the application this morning and should be a legitimate university organization within the next couple weeks. They're an awesome group; diverse, responsible, and they are always looking out for each other on the trail. Can't really ask for much more.
