3) The new alternator squeaks like no other
4) I broke the tiny front suckdown line. Time to get me a viking line like I have for the rear
5) The rod on the master cylinder snapped in half when I went to load it on the trailer.
6) Small leak in the power steering box.

Other then those problems it performed flawlessly. It went where I pointed the wheels and climbed up just about everything I tried. Cant wait to fix up the rest and get back on the trail for some more tuning in a couple weeks.

I didnt take many photos, but Jeffro took over a 1000 so ill just wait for his trail report
Nothing that cannot be fixed in fairly short order, I have found that a center limit strap works very well up front, like it better than the suckdown winch on my other Jeep, problem with a suck down winch is that you can forget to release it, with not so good result. Flopped my lil Jeep because of it. Also there is that tendency for the winch line to break, been there done that. As for the Alternator does the belt have enough wrap?
Pretty cool how a well built big boy Jeep walks over darn near everything with open diffs isn't it?

I did have the front locker which was nice. But I was surprised on what I climbed with out a rear locker. That 4bt has some power behind it. A couple times I was building right around 30 psi of boost. The belt is brand new. there is some deflection in the belt if I push on it. Not sure why its acting up. But thats my least bit of concern right now.

I looked back through your pics and the reason for the belt slipping is that there is not enough belt wrap around the alternator pulley. to fix that you would want either reroute the belt or move the idler/ tensioner pulley down a way to get more wrap around the alternator pulley. Would be somewhat tricky since the upper radiator hose comes out in that area. But should not be a problem for you. Great to see this thing on some rocks man, great built

The belts not slipping. I know that noise. Its the alternator it self making a whining noise.

By looking at all the pictures the ORI's are doing some interesting stuff

I feel like the rear is alittle to soft for me. Front seemed to preform flawless.

Killer build. Will gave me a hand this weekend installing my locker and he talked about how well your Jeep performed at the Badlands the day before. I had to find your build on here to check it out. That's definitely some super impressive work! My ZJ could use a little of your creative ingenuity if you're ever up in the Crown Point area.

Talk about flex
Look at all the pics Jeff took as far as flex goes, squatting and what not
Don't know squat about how ORI's work, but the claim is that they do not unload, seems like they do also the back seems to flex earlier and more than the front, it's nice when the front and back flexes equally so the body stays relatively straight and the axles just articulate. I am sure you will get it adjusted to your liking. Still love the pic of climbing a ledge with 4 tires spinning and the coal coming out of the back, those pics are priceless.
Looks like it has some serious torque

The nitrogen pressure in the bottom controls the struts "spring rate", that most likely needs increased in the rear. It takes 2-3 tries to get everything adjusted to your liking for each vehicle.
