I'm wrapping this massive project up this weekend. Took Wednesday through Friday off this week plus 3 day holiday weekend. Plan to wash, dry, clay and wax her in the morning and finally drive it for the second time after 2 months. Only item I can't do is differentials (5.13 gears, aluminum covers, skid plates). Waiting on Quadratec to send me the gears. Also waiting on Grizzly hydraulic shop press for pressing bearings on/off. I've been wanting one just couldn't justify it till now. It shipped today after 2 month delay. Another small item is Bartact front seat covers. Rear ones came quickly from Quadratec, but front ones took 7 weeks???? Recieved them today. They were another rear set, without my red inserts and were for a JK. Guess I'll be waiting longer. I thought I was nuts investing 100 hours in my last Polaris, but I'm up to about 200 hours in this guy. Ughh... I'm just to addicted to projects, engineering and tinkering. Probably why I have 3 engineering degrees.......Doing a great job, do you have a target completion date or deadline? And what’s left to do?
Where can I get one? I would like to honor the young man who's life was cut too short..
I have listed a decal in remembrance of Kendrick and will forward all profits to the Wells Fargo Bank memorial fund set up to benefit his family:
Not sure if this was posted already but picked a bunch of these decals up from So Jeep Girl on Instagram. Proceeds being donated of course.
Is the new updated track bar bigger, heavier, or adjustable?? Was wondering how they changed it. I noticed the factory one is super light when I replaced mine with rk adjustable one.Asked dealer to apply TSB# S1819000003 and S1819000004 but with my own supplied Fox Racing ATS stabilizer and their updated track-bar.
End result? I’m just gonna close the books on this and calling it fixed.
On my way home, I went straight for a giant pothole at full speed, no death wobble, not even a wobble, very satisfied.
As for drift/steering wheel slack, the track bar appears to fix most of that, there is about half an inch of play but over all very smooth and consistent. Seems to be more resistant when turning the steering wheel but that’s probably due to the stabilizer.
Overall very happy and glad to not have to deal with issue again. (Hopeful)
