Here is a short video of me and a buddy climbing an incline in Rennie.. off the beaten path just screwing around.. nothing crazy, but it was steeper in person than the video shows, obviously.

Finally able to check my steering box.. it's been making some creeking noises, and I already knew it has only been held on with 2/3 bolts, so I wanted to see what was going on. It's twisting pretty bad... here it's a video lol..

I plan to replace all 3 bolts with grade 8 and replace the spacer with a beefier steel one

Got my IRO steering box spacer today and some new grade 8 bolts... Time to fix stuff! Whole job took me 20 minutes! Didn't have to disconnect any lines, steering linkage, or the pitman arm!

Massaged and modified the frame mount on my Tcase skid. Rough Country suggests to use 2 self tapping bolts from under the frame... Mine pulled out after a few wheeling trips so I welded on some angled steel and did a side frame mount. Also massaged a few spots where it was touching the tcase due to my bit shorter tranny mount. Should be better.

Had a solid weekend of wheeling and camping. One of my buddies flopped his XJ, but we righted it and carried on. Also I blew a bead in a sketchy spot with a to ledge to my passenger side. Had to strap to a tree and get some weight on the rock sliders.

X2 looks great, Metro! And nice new tits! I ran a set of Trxus MT's a few years ago, they grab everything.
