the track bar mount broke off the axle... the weld didn't break, but the mount cracked off... I will be making a phone call this week.

a few pics from harlan (my cell pics). More should be to come.

Oh and a picture of the Wifey to be working on the tires last week.

Track bar bracket came in today for the axle side. Maybe I'll be able to install it this weekend

I didn't make it to Cox's park. I ended up working until after 4pm last weekend.

The trackbar should run perpendicular to the draglink and preferably be the same length, to alleviate bumpsteer. any reason why you did not use the Currie setup with a flip kit? It's considerably stronger than the JRC setup and doesn't have a dead spot in the steering. Also it only needs one knuckle reamed or modified and the sway bar mount moved up some on the left. A lot less work and no front end issues.




Currie setup with flip kit, looks to have about the same amount of ground clearance

in hindsight I probably should have... Time wise it would have been cheaper, but the JCR setup is cheaper than the currie.

When I ordered the kit I didn't have my 60s so I wanted it to be able to source TRE's locally either at home or at the trail if I needed to if I broke one.

The track bar is actually at the same plane of the drag link, it's just bent which is why it doesn't look like it. It's a cut down RE track bar.

The biggest thing I didn't think about with the knuckle over kit was raising the upper track bar mount so I wouldn't lose any compression on the driver side.

Maybe, I've been there twice this year and I think maybe 3 times last year. My group is a little burnt out on harlan because of planning for Crawl 4 Christ.

I think we're talking about going to the Badlands in september.

Probably going to Harlan next April for one of my Bachelor Parties.

Did some grinding and welding tonight on the track bar mount on the axle side. Plans for the rest of the week, add some gussets to the mount, weld the axle sway bar mounts on, push the front axle forward about an inch to two inches. I would really like to weld my bead locks on my other 2 wheels, but I won't have time before next weekend's trip to the badlands.

If anyone wants to join us at the badlands let me know.

I really need to find my camera. Added a bit of strength to the track bar mount. Also moved the front axle forward about an inch or so. Need to test fit the track bar to be sure that it won't hit anything.

I have a Hobart 187 That's about 4 years old or so. I've finally figured out how to make it run right. If I did it over again I would have spent the extra hundred bucks on a miller. At the time, my girlfriend's dad bought it for me. He gave me the money to buy the one I wanted. He thought of me as a son... Now she's my fiance and we're getting married next may so the jeep needs to get on Tons.
