Yup that's rausch. It's always a good time. Plenty for someone of all shapes and sizes.

Had an interesting night with the jeep.

Had death wobble

Fixed death wobble

Drove home with a trailer that was not weighted properly and had the rear of the jeep waggle all the way home.

Trac bar bolt was loose. Need to make sure that bolt is a fine thread. I replaced it with a better fitting one and I'm not sure it's a fine thread.

Tom woods driveshaft #2 installed. Test drive to come tonight or tomorrow.

Need to touch up all the paint from last wheeling trip. Metalcloak zinc coating on the joint are still 100% rust free.

Test drive went well… except for the 180 I did in the merge lane onto a 3 lane highway. Little bit of rain on the road and a spot that is notorious for being slippery when wet and I spun out quicker than I though possible. Was the first time I've ever spun the jeep around.

the LSD in the rear probably locked up.

On the plus side there was very little traffic, nobody behind me and no damage to the jeep from hitting the curb sideways.

That's crazy. The only time I've spun my jeep around was actually in my dad's yj, on ice, & it did a real quick 180.

My km2s are getting worn & I need to replace them soon; I had the front tires straight up hydroplane the other day in some heavy rain....I've had the front & rears lose grip before, but not hydroplane like that.

Did a little New Years wheeling at a local spot. Brought my dad and twin brother along for their first wheeling trip.
A lot of sloppy mud and trails that are very tight, but fun (until clean up starts)
buried my jeep to the frame in mud once.

placed a large fire extingusher order for my club. almost $600 worth of fire extingushers, 10 extingushers in total. Got them from triangle fire company in FL. I would highly reccomend them. Jessica gave me a discount just for asking.

I picked up a 5lb Purple K and a two strap mount. Plan is to mount it in front of the drivers seat. Also picked up a regular ABC fire extingusher for the garage.
