One thing that was weird, was that the new bolts did not have 8mm Hex heads. I had to use 11/32 socket to get them installed on the T-Case side. As short as I am, I was able to reach back there to get the old one off and the new one on.
I just needed to remove the engine skid plate.
Was thankful I did not have to drop the T-Case Skid on the RE kit.
OK I am CDO
That's OCD Alphabetized
After looking at the above pictures, I just could not take the license plate light being off center.
I notched the license plate and centered the light. This should also keep the Po Po off my ass since it lights all 4 letters the same and they can't say they can't read it
I will be doing some mild trails this saturday. Gonna Trail Lead a bunch of newbies,
Then on New Years Day we will be doing some Rock Crawling on a mix of middle level trails and a few Black rated ones. Those are considered 8+ for those who wheel in the mid west.
So I have definitely been putting this to good use offroad and it still drives like a hot knife through butter for my work commute
I am super impressed with these tires.
I air them down to 12 psi and they crawl up everything. Been really good on wet rocks, and they clear and get through mud very well too. Definitely not a Super Swamper, but I avoid that type of mud.
Other thing is they balanced with only a few stick on weights and drive very nicely on the street.
If anyone is looking for new tires, I highly recommend these Yokohama's
Another great day of wheeling. Best way to start the new year. It was drizzling all day, and rained hard only a few times, which made for some slippery rocks, but it did not seem to faze the jeep at all. I am currently running 12psi offroad which is working well.
Buddy of mine got a couple of good pictures.
I got some really nice compliments on the vehicle and it's capability. We started in a bigger group doing mid level trails, but then 5 of us split off to do some harder stuff. I was in a group of people on 37s and was the only one on 35s. Did everything the guys on 37s did.
Yes she does, which is why I can crawl up so much stuff.
It's rare when I am not getting 4 wheels worth of solid traction.
As Yoda would say,
Build a Good Jeep, you have.
I have finally some ORO parts on the way.
New Swayloc to AiRock harness as that optical sensor in the old one failed, and sadly, I killed the passenger front control arm sensor this past trip. So once that is replaced, the driver front sensor may be the only remaining original control arm sensor, as it has a purple arm.
Also have the Emergency Repair Kit on the way.
