Tore the rear end of my truck apart, is a noisy SOB, gave it a lil more backlash checked all the bearings and the contact pattern is all good bearings still look new.
So back together it went. Still howls, but will happily take me to Moab and back. Gonna start looking for a trans cooler and see if I can get that installed before my Moab homage . Then fix the last tire and see if I can mount that on an as of yet to purchase raceline. Change oil in the truck and Jeep and find me a place to stay for the week and I am all squared away for my vacation trip. Oh yeah trailer needs a bit of love also. The things we do for our hobby

Can't wait to see pics of your trip, Art. As usual, living vicariously through you!

Come on out, way better way of living vicariously.
Tennessee is halfway out to Moab
Life is to short to waste it just working.

You are welcome, Art. I have stayed at a couple other places and visited several others. Canyonlands is by far my favorite. I have not stayed there in ~2 years, so I'm not sure if much has changed.

What have you been up to Joe?
Not much garage door fixing going on?
Looks like you are spending a fair amount of time at Blaine's, which isn't a bad thing.

Trying to keep up with my kids/family, housework etc. I still do garage door work when I can. Yep, I lend a hand whenever I can for Blaine. I can't count how many times he's helped me out. Keep me outta trouble too.

Been reading most of this build on and off for a little while now and I just have one thing to say...

Holy ****.

If my TJ is ever a tenth as good as yours I will consider it a success. Amazing work and wheeling, definitely subbed for more.

Jeepin is all about having fun with it and it's my goal to have as much fun with it as possible. Seems like I am doing a fairly good job of it
Thanks for the props
