How did you bend a track bar? Iv got one you can have. The bushings are a little ehh but they should be fine.

That is great , that the warranty is going to cover the TIPM.
Let's hope they can get one in and installed before this weekend.

Nothing is really set in stone yet. Probably try to meet up somewhere on 72 in Madison, kinda early Sat. morning. Say, maybe 6:30~6:45, @ Chick-fil-a across from Lowe's? I don't have a local head-count of who is going yet

Will see.
They are going to weld plates on either side of the trackbar bracket to reinforce it with new holes. I ordered a new trackbar from Rustys and a steering stabilizer from Rough Country. The mechanic recommended I stay away from Rough Country track bars as he has seen the bend. Believe it or not, he even told me to stay away from Teraflex. His money was on Rubicon Express or Rustys.
The mechanic, Allen, has a lot of Jeep and offroad knowledge which was good to hear. You dont usually get that at a dealer. I asked him about the auto trans cooler and he recommended adding an additional cooler. Says he has seen several autos overheat when crawling.
Dont know if Ill be back on the road by Saturday. They have a rush on the TIPM, everything else will be fixed.
BTW, he had nothing good to say about the stock BF Goodrich ATs that Chrysler puts on the Jeeps. He sees them cup frequently.

Good to hear the extended warranty is paying off. If they haven't welded the plates on yet, you may want to consider getting a brace that goes over the bracket. If it too late for that, get a bigger bolt that will get rid of the play in the track bar. There's a thread on here somewhere that tells you what size to get.

Sounds like you are getting it all sorted out. Kinda funny that he recommended RE......after all of the issues they have had recently.

I agree with this. I am wondering if he is more versed in the TJ world. When I had my TJ the RE kit was the bread and butter, but they really fell behind on the JK market.

Heck yea I took the discount, got me a dollar off their buffet. I had to choose between my pride and my dollar. My dollar won. I don't think I can pick up the tab, but I'll check my old man coupon stash for some S&S discounts for y'all.

You are welcome to join us! I will be taking it easy (for the most part), since I haven't been to HP yet. So, I don't know the trails yet. I usually wait until my second or third trip somewhere, before trying to break stuff ...........

Not sure where the disconnect is here.............
I talked to Frankie. He was told that the park wasn't open.........
Looking at the HP website, their calendar shows it is an "Open Offroad" weekend............
Waiting to hear back from the MS crew, as to if they have reserved the park or not..........

If I don't hear back from the MS guys, I may call HP myself and see what they have to say.
Either way, I am getting some dirt on my tires somewhere this weekend ...........

No worries, man. Thanks for the heads-up. Woulda sucked to drive all that way, to find out that the park was closed..........

Since one wheeler is coming from the South-side of HSV, maybe it would be easier to meet up somewhere close to I565. Anyone that is going, how about meeting up at the Krystal's on Madison Blvd, say around 6:30~6:45? I would like to be on the road by 7:00.

I had a good time. Didn't get to see about half of the trails, so definitely want to go back.
We went down a couple of tricky trails, with some mud, off-camber rocks, and trees that tried to rip off fender flares and doors (got some new trail-stripes on the Heep ).
We also took a wrong turn at one point, and ended up on an ATV trail, that was WAY too narrow for a 4-door. It was a good day, though.

We will have to plan another trip there soon.
