I put a Flowmaster on mine and am happy with it, I had the same concerns as you when I did it and after it was done I was happy with the results.

That might do better than the ricer guy who put a cherry bomb on it...it doesnt sound too bad surprisingly...except its ghetto rigged on...i might just have them patch up the welds for a few bucks

A chain saw is always good and a shovel and gloves. I'll be meeting yyoon at 8 at the 410 cafe with the rest of the club we're in for breakfast if your interested. Also last year they gave everyone a free day pass but if you had at least 2 people in your rig they gave them a free year pass! CB channel 10 for us


yyoon
Justin and Dale are heading up to Naches on Tuesday night after work so they should get a good spot, The rest are heading up Thursday and Friday, I'll be there around 8-9am Saturday. Most will stay till Monday(Im out Sunday early) Justin said his CB will be on all week never off. CB channel 10.

Did you say Bucky's? I think they have lifetime warranties on their work. You may want to check!

I think 5-6ish works on Friday. I'm in no hurry. I figure everyone get get to camp, setup, relax, then wake up early and hit some trails. I'm gonna do a run with the Jeep club I'm in. I need to get a few in with them or else they may think I'm a mall crawler!!! Just kidding!

4.0 + Tick = Normal! I can't beleive how noisy my engine and drivetrain is! I'm sure you heard all the drivetrain clacking! How annoying, of course Jeep says it's normal.

I got my spare changed out to a matching MT/R. Discount wanted the one they sold me because it was the only one in the nation and a customer had pre-ordered it! So in the end I got a matching tire!

Kewl! Do you mind if a few of my friends camp at the clubs campsite? They may be looking for a river spot but if Justin and Dale get a good spot it would be nice to save the grief of looking! I'm headed up on Friday evening then will hang out until Sunday afternoon/evening. Can't wait!

ah i understand now, as for control arm rubbing, wont it hurt the tire if you let it continue?

as for wheeling soon, not on the options list for a few weeks
this weekend is my SARS conference and memorial day weekend my husband is getting leave from army training to come home and see me, and i very much doubt i can talk him into spending that time in the mud with us. Too bad i was really looking forward to Naches, but looking even more forward to my husband

It's been a while since I saw a stock control arm. Just look at the control arm and you should be able to see a shiny spot where the tires are rubbing, as long as it is not a sharp edge it won't hurt anything. My control arms are round so it is not a problem on mine, but I know the factory one a re square so you will want to double check, if it is rubbing right on the edge then washers behind the steering stops would be a good idea.
