Re: TJ's JT

Did you adjust the caster and that track arm and draglink thing to account for the lift? If so, how? Surprisingly the axle doesn't seem to be too far off center from lifting it a little more, and the steering wheel is still centered. The Black TJ was off enough to bug me, so it got adjustable track...

Re: TJ's JT

Today was off with the Teraflex 1.5" front spacers, and on with an RC 2.5" front spacer kit. The front end dropped almost an inch after adding the winch and bumper. This fixed it. The RC kit also has extended sway bar links and shock extensions for the factory Fox shocks. Thank you Michael...

Re: Random Picture Thread

Last minute trek to Juniper with Mojito Jafo. Looked for some Putters on sxs's. Didn't find them. I did find out that all the fancy buttons in the world are no match for less than 10 lbs of air. :oops: Once I aired down, it even climbed hills backwards! Good to get out.

Unofficial PUAM/Litter protest 2020

As with all things 2020, this year's PUAM was officially cancelled. :cry: But, the PNW4WDA Region 4, and Gold Creek Station put on an unofficial clean up. I named it a litter/garbage protest, to lessen the guilt of attending a gathering during the Covid shutdown. :roll: I did not take many pictures....

Our old boat is back at our house! Our oldest nephew has confiscated her from the owners that I practically gave it to, (long family story) after years of sitting and neglect. Right now, she looks about as bad as when Barb and I bought her and fixed her up. When Barb and I bought her, she was sittin...

Nice work!! I went round and round debating what to do for flat towing our JLU-R... MOPAR, Cool Tech, or the Hopkins diode kit...

Re: TJ's JT

So I had some rubbing last weekend at the dunes. Figured I would with the 7.5" wide JL wheels and no spacers. Quadratec Rubicon wheels to the rescue. On sale! 17x9". I always loved TJ Rubi wheels, and the wheels that came on my old 1982 pos Z28. These are kind of a cross between the two. 2...

Anyone know how high above the vehicle the flag needs to be for Juniper rules.

For right now, local daily driver, motorhome pull behind, and boat hauler. Campsite firewood hauling volunteer.
Mild spacer lift, 35's and light duty wheeler. Easy wide stuff. :oops:

Maybe later when the 35's wear out, a better lift, and 37's.

How’d it tow? Awesome! It's no 7.3 diesel, but it did great. Plenty of power, and so much easier to maneuver the boat around to the backyard, and at the boat launch. #7000 tow capacity on the wide axle Rubicon. The Max Tow optioned Sport S (like the Cunningham's JT) can tow #7650. Max Tows are basi...
