When I was a younger man and had a fondness for mud I would put a sprinkler under the Jeep after a day in the mud. After an hour or two it would be all clean underneath.

Funny thing is I have tried this many times with no luck any time. Most of the time after a muddy run, I will remove my trans/transfer case skid and all four tires to get the mud.... and I still always miss some.

Well, I replaced all four brake rotors and pads this weekend by myself.... Only took about 6 hours with a floor jack and a couple jack stands. I dropped it off at a different mechanic (than I usually use) this morning for a "professional" opinion on ball joints. He just called and asked why I dropped it off because my ball joints are very tight. Anyways, that is great news. But it still does not explain why both of my tires lean inward slightly???

Cannot wait to break the brakes in today after work and drive the heep again! Kinda funny now, but I paid someone to do the brake job on the jeep last time....

Thats an awful lot of work to do after each mud run, I think I will stick to rocks...though I am still cleaning moab dust out of my lj from last week.
As to the lean, could it be a bent axle housing?

The grass is always greener right ? I don't even try to clean up the dust till winter anymore.

Any Moab pics in your build thread ?

I hope it is not this and the mechanic I took it too said he did not "SEE" any anything out of the ordinary.

I visually inspected both this weekend when I was changing the brakes. Nothing looked wrong, that I saw. About 2-3 degree net lean inward between the two tires.

Dust.... topless + car wash = clean

My tires "seem" to lean inward also but I have no treadware issues. Maybe it is just the MT/Rs.

thats a great idea! it would eventually all be gone. will def have to try that next time. i'm assuming it was one of those sweeping, back and forth ones. the moving tractor kind might work if it sprays up enough...

Yes the sweep style is what I used . As soon as I got home I would hook it up and it came off nice . If I waited a day or two it took much longer .

I am in Durango now, Kansas is this afternoon. We are loading up now and heading for the great sand dunes, hopefully the pagosa fire isn't too bad.
