I'm pretty sure we came down Jack North... I think we were going to do Wrecking Ball, but I was just following the group...I had no clue what was what.
This is the gatekeeper thing

This is the the fun part of wrecking ball

I think I "bypassed" it to the right after the first 2 rigs in front of me failed to get up

Does this look like this spot?

Love his spotting technique,, such as it is. Did he back you into a rock yet; back, back, back, BAM, OK, that's far enough

Need to try to get another trip in before summer, only a couple of hours from here...

That's the beginning of Jack and that guy ain't on the line.

Can't imagine anyone else I'd rather have spotting me...even with the ration of **** he gives me!

This is probably a pretty simple question but wanted to check before I did something I regretted.

I've never completely removed any of my RE Long Arms since they were installed coming up on 5 years ago this summer (although probably only 10-12K miles since installing). The fronts have been unbolted from the Axle a couple times for axle swapping/fixing, etc but I've never removed from the frame side, and never touched the rears.

Anyhow, I'd like to yank them off, check all the bushings, check / clean / service / throw fresh grease in the flex joints, maybe throw a coat of paint on them to keep from rusting where I've scrapped them pretty good on rocks... Also the Tri-Link connection in back is pretty gunky and want to make sure it's all good.

Anyhow the simple question is, can I just remove the arms one at a time, with the Jeep on level ground in garage, tires all touching the ground. Do the check/clean/service, re-install and move onto the next one?

I assume they should all be re-installed with specific torque values, but I'll have to dig up and see if I still have the install directions (I didn't install the lift originally, I had it done at a shop).

Thanks in Advance!

Wade

I guess I'll just do it and see how it turns out...if they find me dead under the rig I'll know it wasn't a good idea.

I've had all 4 of my rear ones off at the same time with the parking brake on, no worries! I've even driven around missing one before.. You shouldn't have any issues removing one at a time.

First Arm Off... Driver Lower... Nice and Gunky!



Just a few small scratches on bottom...


And the Rubber Bushing isn't horrible...small cracks, just a bit oblong, but not sure if repalcement warranted yet! Thoughts?

I was thinking out doing this as soon as I get some time. Planning on replacing the bushings and inspecting the races. Cleaning and regreasing everything. Putting on a fresh coat of black paint.
