I ran street pressure for a while and everyone else aired down. I eventually aired down too but I've seen many guys that have to go down to 1-2psi with their kevlars just to get traction. They are an amazing tire, and as I said, are like cheating!

Haha no it isn't, it's a good tire. Some people just don't want to believe it.

I keep forgetting to get pics...so I'll just update this.

Bought new shocks for the front, Bilstein 5100s. I like them a lot so far. Need to replace the rear pins and springs, I can't even drive the Jeep right now :shaking:

I've been doing nothing but working and homework but the end of the semester is near. I can't wait to just dive into the garage and then enjoy the summer.

I got a couple poser flex shots from the one good weekend we've had:

Hey just picked up a set of 35 inch Krawlers

Any advice?

Why did you cut the lugs?

Quick update: new springs and pins put into the rear locker - still clicking and popping. I need to call Aussie tomorrow and see what they can do. Otherwise I'll be buying a Spartan.

Garage
I'd run a Detroit or spool it. Easy, affordable, and dependable.

The 8.8 and HP30 are eventually being replaced by 1 tons, already sourced the rear. It's an Eaton h072, I'll shed more light on this later. So for now it will get a band-aid fix or another lunchbox locker to put me back on the trails.

After talking with Aussie, it may just need the cam gears swapped from one side to the other to restore operation. Trouble is, I don't know when I'll have time to do this. More on this when I actually can make time.

Let me know when you figure out how to do this. It has eluded me for years.
