Hey I'm stop alive!

I'm about 800 miles out of Saginaw Michigan. Everything has been going descent with only a few hiccups. Driving at night it was about 4*not including windchill and my tailor light wires were starting to crack and brake. Then pulling into a subway I cut the corner to tight and the back tire of the wrangler hit a grand prix. Then we just know got stuck going up a snow covered incline going to the Gas station. Ended up just pushing the zj up the hill with the yj.

Wish me luck guys!

Made it to AZ at 830p tonight. Everything went great with only minor problems. This morning the radiator hose cracked on the end. Just chopped 3" off and it was good as new. The zj did good pulling the wrangler and about 1000lbs of other stuff. Only problem was when we got about two hours away from mesa. The mountains where whooping the zj's *** but we made it threw.

Ok, so the trip went great. The zj pulled awesome until I got to the mountains of AZ. That was a pain in the ***.
The day after getting home I went to drive the YJ, no brakes!?!? Was checking them out and found my wheel bearings were toast! My falt. When I put them on I tighten the center nut down as if I was doing spindle bearings, so like only 5 foot pounds of torque. Yikes!
I replaced them with timkin wheel bearings, got them for free :-) and while I was at it I out on my new leaf springs with the help if a AZevil. Got that all together and have bad vibes now, soooo I'm currently in the process of fixing that. Wish I had money for sye!

New stance with 4" springs. I've come to the conclusion that they are RE heavy duty. I also cut down my shackles to about 5/8.



Went here today and it was awesome!
