Took the time yesterday to set the pre-load on my rear upper control arms to 0 as Conner suggested then re-installed the front driveshaft. I went all week with it off and was getting an extra 2 mpg. I have a 108 mile round trip every day and a couple of extra miles in a gallon was nice.
I was pretty worn out from work this week, then working on the jeep all day Sat, so I was going to take it easy today and just veg out on some football. Last night The Wife kept saying she wanted to go to Hot Springs and run some trials at Superlift before all the leaves were gone. I hinted that I kind of wanted to stay home and of course that didn't go to well. Finally, about 10:30 last night she said, ' your wife wants to go to Superlift and your not sure if you want to go, whats wrong
with you!'. We left out at about 9am this morning.
Had a good day, the only issue was with the passenger rear brake pad. It was chattering on deep descents, quite as a mouse on climbs but lots of noise with the nose pointing down. Time for pads and rotors.
I've hit this ledge at the entrance to 'Grandmothers' over 20 times and have never made it up, always had to bypass. After the SYS I removed the spacers on the skid plate, so I gained an inch of clearance, where it really mattered.
Pulling up to that little ledge.
Here we go!
Starting to slide to the left as usual but will it fall off this time?
Finally!! So, I went back and did it again just to be sure.
Who knew that an extra inch could do so much!
