My $0.0175 worth (used to be $0.015 worth, but with all deficit spending and tax increases done by the current administration to pay for all the BS programs, an increase in my fees is needed). Still cheaper than most folks $0.02 worth.
Having been the guy who has driven too fast and now an...
Always thought the automotive supply philosophy of just-in-time (JIT) often turned into almost-in-time (AIT).
Looks as if the chip supply problem is not-even-close-in-time (NECIT).
Have to love folks who sit and look at spreadsheets, make assumptions, then make decisions, but have no clue to...
On my JLR, it has:
Rock Krawler 3.5 Lift T-Rex (Mid arm in the front, Long arm in the rear)
Hydraulic bump stops
Rear Shock relocation kit (moves shocks up)
Artec rear fender liners
No rubbing issues
A couple of months back, similar situation on my 3.6 JLR with manual gear box.
After a year, had about 4200 miles on the clock.
Changed oil anyway.
Don't like to go past 50% oil life anyway.
For me, the most I would go is about 5000 miles before oil changes.
If you have a 2.0T, definitely...
Nice looking Jeep!
My $0.015 worth regarding mods:
When it comes to mods, especially suspension, go with the good stuff.
There is so much stuff that comes from overseas that is junk. Yes, its cheap and may look decent, but it won't hold up and will take away from the Jeep experience.
Great to see the kids out hiking and enjoying the outdoors.
When our son would ask, how come we were hiking, biking, climbing, skiing, etc., we would respond because you are going to have fun whether you like it or not.
Now he's a champion snow skier and water skier at Chapel...
This time of year, the Parkway is often closed. Today, the section with the Viaduct was closed. Normally, pedestrians are not allowed on the Viaduct. However, since there were no cars, there were people hiking the Viaduct. Our new dog Misty, who's a two year old cattle dog rescue, had a...
Was driving around on the fire roads near Grandfather Mnt and the Parkway. Found this little spot to get some mud on tires and an opportunity to climb this incline.
To prove that video and pictures never do justice to climbs, this is what the dash says the climb was.
Looks as if I need to...
Glad you found the problem.
I assume it was the bolt that holds the stabilzer to the bar.
FWIW, I do not trust lock washers.
Research has shown that they really don't work, as shown in the links below.
The videos show how Nord Lock washer help. Typical examples are shown below...
Recently went with front and rear manual cable Ox lockers on my CJ-7 with Dana 44 Axles from a Scout.
The Ox locker cable design is setup such that the cable must be working for the locker to engage (i.e., fail safe position is to free wheel the diff).
Anyway, really like Ox Lockers
Glad you are OK.
With the SteerSmart system, the bolt for stabilizer shock that goes to the bar came loose a couple of times. Last time, I used a lot more blue Loctite, and the bolt has not come loose.
IMHO, the single bolt to hold the stabilizer to the bar needs to have some kind of...
