Of course a few shots of the JK in the dirt!!!

Ill post the carnage pics here shortly. I actually have two problems now but one I know exactly what it is. I did not have time to track down the other problem but it seems like my front axle is going to fall out every time i take off.

The common thing on the "JK" is when you do a 3-4" lift move the rear sway bar end links to the front. i know RE, PC, and FT are like this. On the Rubicon using the electronic sway bar I am getting more articulation then the sway bar allows even when disconnected electronically. Then the sway bar flips backwards and the end link just folds in half. I did both sides like that today. Did the first one and zip tied it out of the way after removing the bolt and then did the second one. I also have another problem but have not had time to check it out yet. LOL

It is called "deans backyard" not sure how long it is but 17 well capable vehicles with no major stopping took us 5 hours. I would guess 10 miles maybe. I dont really know. I have it logged on MYGIG i wonder if it will tell me how far from point A to point B

your not kidding, First off road excursion and had to take care of a few issues though.

Should be back in action tomorrow. Sunday I am going to run Moss Wash in Kingman if anyone is up for it. Monday I have to go to Williams to visit KC for some goodies they have for me.

So Hundy, Jason, when are we heading to Vegas for this run? Looks like it would be worth the drive.
