Anyone else have the issue that when it's snowing and you're out on the highway the whole Jeep will suddenly kick sideways with a light gust of wind? It's ****ing terrifying haha

Finally cut and welded bungs into my rear uppers to get the rubber off the frame side and mounted axle side.

I wanted to stick with the theme of using jeep factory rubber everywhere and nobody makes threaded ends that accept, so....challenge accepted!
i ordered some more factory jeep turned dom bushing shells from IRO, bought some 1.25"x12tpi bungs from ruffstuff, and two 1.25 x 12 tpi grade 8 bolts from fastenal. I coped the head of the bolt out to accept the bushing shell to make the end.

then i would just cut the welded bushing end off the upper arm and weld in the bung right? never as easy as it seems
These were some rustys long arms I had. rustys says on their site their arms are 2" od .250" wall Dom. Once I cut the bushing shells off I realized they were actually .188 wall. Rustys strikes again.could be older arms I suppose since they were second hand, but still made for a pain since my bungs were 1.5" od. Luckily an awesome friend was willing to turn some sleeves to make up the difference on his lathe. I drilled a through Hole in the sleeves, rossete welded the sleeve to the bung and got the bung welded in the
tube.


I may have already posted this but I hit the limits on my 10" travel rear shocks in a hurry, need to bring the upper mounts up into the cargo area and get some longer shocks for sure, we will see how she does once I get the front 14" 5125 bilsteins off my garage floor and fabbed in on the fronts.

Thought about the 31s some more and realized that the tread width on the Duratracs is only a 1/2" less on a 215/85R16 compared to the 245/75R16 (although the tire is a bit over an inch narrower overall). Now I'm thinking I'm probably better off with the skinny 31s (215/85R16 is a 30.5x8.5), as they should have a lot less rubbing issues when turning (especially while flexed).

Nice, I would like to get some longer shocks too but my bilsteins are only a year old so I hate to have to get new ones

Actually it was yesterday. Installed a new rear seal for the lift glass. Hopefully that'll keep the water out of my cargo area. Also glued up by broken OH console and put in a new map light lens. No more seizure inducing store light!

Anyone know of any place that sells these? R2-2-3101 3110 Flange Yoke Adapter? Rockford Driveline has them listed on their site, but no price. And couldn't get a hold of them...

Maybe there is another part number I could try?

Emailed them, since I'm not sure what time they close.. Thanks.

Still open to other places/options though. Thinking this would be easiest, and least time consuming for the time being.

Finally replaced my crankshaft position sensor. What a PITA. But she starts way easier now. Hopefully tomorrow morning I won't be sitting at an intersection while I wait for it to start after it stalls out again. lol. Did some rock crawling for the first time too. I want to put pictures on, but they "exceed 540.6 KB." I'll post them to Instagram and try to post a link.
Also, I tightened up the latch for the back hatch to stop the clunking. It didn't work.
