Anyone know how to get a video from a friends Iphone to post on here?

Its not very long- but I have the parking lot donut video. I am mostly entrertained by my grown-a** friend in the passenger seat taking the video going "WHHEEEEEeeeeEEEEEeeeee"

Hope y'all had fun yesterday. Roads were a mess up here when I got out of work. Didnt see a single plow out and I was sliding around even in 4wd.

In other news - I think I have a bit of a DW starting to manifest again. Only around 50mph and only 1/5 times. I am thinking it might be the trac bar again, but I am not sure. Friday after work I am going to take a good look at all of the steering components.

Try and upload the video to photobucket and then copy and paste the links to the thread

He can upload it to a photobucket app and then use the photobucket link.

We had a blast. I dont think anyone expected to get that much snow yesterday so no one was prepared for it.

Thats the same problem the cherokee is having and Im almost positive its the track bar. Damn coil sprung rigs lol

I've had problems with the photobucket app. At least for andriod, it only accepts up to 25MB, so if it doesn't upload, just have them use the cable to get it on your/their computer.

Also Kate, where did you have your front driveshaft rebuilt?

I went to endangered species in Holyoke - but I would do it myself if I had to again

I dont know if this is an issue for anyone else...

but my damn seatbelt always seems to get in the way of closing the door. If it happens a few more times without me realizing it - I am actually going to have to replace my seatbelt. Its looking a bit worse for the wear.

Is it just me this happens to? I need to figure out some sort of tension or weighting setup to keep it from the door latch.

Yes, yes - one could say just make sure the seat belt is away from the latch before you shut the door. Ain't nobody got time for that!

Non-issue here. Is the belt retracting all the way?

It retracts MOST of the way. There is always about an inch of slack which is just enough to get between the door and the door latch.

I have that also. Once got stuck so bad that I had to enter through the passenger side and force the drivers door open. Now I just make sure the belt is out of the way. Poor design!

I've flipped that slack out of the way of the latch so much on mine that I find myself doing it on other people's cars now, too.

I must be lucky. I don't have that issue. Is it an LJ thing?

Our LJ passenger side does this to me about every time I'm a passenger in it. It's annoying and I wish there was a better solution.
