Blew a rear brake line on that last trip... Replaced it last night so back in business! Only problem is that I found my other brake lines are about to pop as well

Went up the original road that General John Stark took when he marched to the Battle of Bennington in the Revolutionary War. This is a grave of an unknown soldier that died along the way.

Our buddy bought a new dirt mod car, this thing is mean!!! Raced up at Rumney this week, he started 12 and finished 8th, first time driving the car and first time on dirt! It was quite a learning curve but next week I'm sure he'll do better!

Went out the other night for an hour or so and heard some clunking from underneath. As soon as I bent down to look I noticed my sway bar link hanging.... Sure enough, broke the top bolt off that holds it onto the swaybar. Not a big deal by any means but another fix that will have to be done before inspection.

So Ive been driving the Jeep around a lot lately and finding more and more issues that need to be addressed. First is the front left brake, its been binding up and pulling while driving. Ive seen some sparks come out of it at night and the rim gets extremely hot. Im guessing a seized caliper as my right front did this a few years ago. I have replaced both front calipers/rotors/pads a few years ago but im sure all the mud its been through has finally got to it.

Second is the steering box, it has been leaking like crazy the last few days and I have gone through 1 qt of power steering fluid in that time.
Lastly is my Check Engine Light came on now, Im sure that has to do with the sputtering ive been getting. It doesn't do it when the clutch is in but when im accelerating in 2nd and 3rd it sputters quite a bit. I have to push the clutch in and rev it up a little to get it going... Hopefully I can get it figured out...

remember when we went wheeling 2 years ago over by you and we had to remove my right front wheel because the caliper seized up? I still haven't replaced it lol. it will be replaced next week when im on vacation though. it only locks up when I hold the brake going down hill and the sticks for a while after that. probably changing pads and rotors also.

Haha I remember that, we used a Hi-Lift that day. Its pretty easy to get to and change, its finding the time to do it and the money for parts which is a PITA.
