Not a Jeep mod, but something I've wanted for while and one I wanted for the Moab trip. I'm NOT a small electronics person at all anymore. I actually kind of loath the complexity of it all, even when it's "supposed" to be easy and everyone can manage I still get bored very quickly with it all. But I think I'll enjoy having this around. I have to say the integrated Wi-Fi connectivity between it and my phone is what sealed the deal. Being able to have it mounted some cool place on my rig, and being able to turn it on and off, switch from camera to video, and access all menu functions in a MUCH easier to use format than the camera itself AND to be able to see what the camera see's on my phone is pretty badass. The $199 price point for the entry level unit is also a winner in my book. I do NOT need any more clarity, resolution or speed than that. A 32gig micro SD and I'm all done besides a couple mounts I'm going to get.



I've got a little sideways suspension test video uploading haha....

Here's a crooked video, I thought I'd be able to rotate it, but I'm not that smart I guess. This is just a field by my house that someone dumped some big piles of dirt some time ago that now has some field grass on it. Flexed it out pretty good though. The clarity to me is amazing, ease of use also is good enough to keep me from wanting to throw it...... so far.

I'll get some good video for ya Beasley. I'm the same way.... In my younger years I was way into electronics. As the years go by.... I couldn't care less.

Edit: forgot to mention... my sons been wanting one also.... so he's had a $100 saved and paid half! So it was an easy purchase on my end! He just had a good time running around the neighborhood with it mounted to his BMX bike.

4wd.com, and as far as I know they come greased up ready to go! If not my uppers are dry as the hammers. The lowers have no zerk. Someone confirm please? If they don't, I don't get to fancy with grease, the general purpose automotive in my grease gun will be fine.

Did you grease the uppers though? I knew the lowers were like that. If you did grease the uppers.....did they accept any?

I notice at 2:14 in my video, I'm fairly flexed out and turned to the right some, and the brake line is actually a little more snug than I'd like. Hmmmm.... I thought I was good there. I lowered the factory line and while during a full cycle there seemed to be plenty I guess I never turned the wheel and checked..... duh!!! Looks like some fancy brake lines may be in order.

Read and posted to fast. I put a couple of pumps of grease in both and saw a tiny amount of gray grease(The stuff I use is red) come out of the boot. So yes they appear to come pre-greased, but I put some extra in for piece of mind.

Ball joints that don't have a zerk fitting are pre-greased and non-serviceable. If they have a fitting they should be shot with grease as regular maintenance. Just don't over grease and rupture the boot

Haha, Ok... so they come pre greased..... don't rupture the boot like Andy did. J/K, I'm sure Andy made sure the boot was on securely. I would say however that my initial thought was correct.....they come ready to go, and a SMALL shot of grease as maintenance would be the only requirement.
