Theres been a rash of calipers seizing as of late , glad you got yours fixed easily . I bet the unit bearing will tighten things back up for you , it made a difference on mine .
Yea, I've seen that too, wierd. Just glad I was close to home and didn't F up my pretty much brand new Black Magic brake pads. And I really think that the unit bearing will do it, as I had a solid, wobble free ride just a few weeks ago or so.

Thanks! And yea I wheel all over MA/NH and it definitely a great time, but I would looove to get out west sometime.
Had a little trail cut yesterday, cleared a couple climbs and then gave em hell to clear em off. Only made the easier of the two (left side) as the one I didn't make is pretty damn big, I did try tho, just needs to be cleared off a bit more then I'll give it another try sometime.
Sweet! I want a set of those myself, sure beats the prices of the led bars
Yea, I can't wait to hook em' up! But I do wish I had a 10" bar for ontop of the winch fairlead, now that I am pretty sure they are going on the bumper.
I have hit the windshield frame/light mounts countless times, so I think I should not mount a light there. Also I noticed that the tabs that the lights mount to are not level. Plus they are flood pattern so I would (according to JF) get too much glare reflecting off the hood and want to mount them elsewhere anyway...
I mocked them up in the two places I am considering...
I think I want them on the bumper, but with the hooks right there and the fairlead sticking out, I don't know if they will be blocked enough to kill some light. What I am going to do is wire them up and put them in both locations, and see which works best and how I like them there... Easy enough.
Mine is recessed into the bumper and works great I am trying to decide whether or not to get a second bar for the rear or get a couple of these to mount at the top of the cage (pointing rearward).
I've got a Rigid SRM that I'm going to mount rewards from a rear spreader bar when I get it installed. Doesn't hurt to have light back there.
Nick- no reason you can't put the Duallys on the windshield and get a 10" bar once funds are available for the winch! I'm really happy with the mount I came up with.... I really wouldn't expect much issue with the windshield lights. I've never had a problem with mine.
That light bar is nice! Thats eventually what I'll pick up and mount in that same location. I think if anything the floods would go out back, which in the long run will be great to have back there.
My reasoning for not mounting them to the windshied mounts is because I have been in several situations where I'm leaning them against a tree. My windshield frame had multiple dents and scrapes along it. I know the lights are tough, but I don't want to take my chances.
