Does that represent all the things that you don't have?

Hehehehe exactly. I scraped off a QD and V8 badge of a JY WJ. I have them but wouldnt put them on because I dont actually have those dont want to be a poser. I bought the hybrid logo out of impulse. I got the wrong one, it was supposed to have that Tahoe Hybrid decal and also say "Not a Hybrid, 11 MPG"

I do have an aspect of the Freedom edition, being the roof rails, but thats it. Then the silver trim on the bumper is from the 04 limiteds lol.

Yeah, I thought so too *rolls eyes*

Man, I feel like stopping on it in 4-Low would bust a drive shaft or something. It was actually slower then I thought it would be.

For mine to ever speed up that fast, I'd have to have someone pulling me.

I really want to try this now. Even though it's a terrible idea.

Few things. I attempted to grease the tie rod ends, most pumped grease in without an issue. The two outers, the gun clicked on the fitting and then mostly over flowed out the fitting, am I doing it wrong? Maybe because of the angle with the rim. The pitman arm tie rod was easy, i was able to make the boot ooze a little grease. I took the stuff that grease that overflowed out of the fittings and rubbed it on the threads of the tie rods, figured that wouldnt hurt anything. I guess the Moog TRE's came with some grease in them already? I would think they did. The bushings are pretty smashed down now that the tie rods are bolted tight on there. So its not like they would hold a whole ton of grease?

Second, took the jeep up to 85-90 and set it on cruise for about 5-8 miles at that speed and I was impressed with the ride and the steering. A lot less movement in the wheel can make a correction. Felt stable with the springs/shocks/sways etc.

The low-end grunt in 1st is great but beyond that you have diminishing returns... the effective gear ratio becomes the same as speed increases.... you are just two-three gears higher in the transmission to get there. For instance - 2nd gear in high is about the same as 4th is in 4Lo. Around 60 both will behave about the same. Plus all that extra time spent shifting means slower ET.

The gun might not have been clicked all the way down on the Zerk. Or the ball valve in the Zerk fitting is stuck, but I wouldn't expect that problem on a brand new part. They are shipped with grease but it doesn't hurt to add more.

Thats what I was thinking, just did not have it on all the way. Is it okay for the bushing to ooze grease, a sign its full?

Ill take a needle and make sure the little ball will move, but like you said it is brand new and should be fine. I think it was the angle the hose was at because it was tight between zerk fitting and the rim.

Make sense, you could see him basically bounce the rev on 1st through 3rd basically back to back.

Yeah, that's how you do it. And stop calling it a bushing! It's a boot.

I heard overfilling can be bad, something about tearing the boot.
