So, I went to help out for the Ultra 4 race at Rausch Creek. The jeep held up good for race prep and all that.
Sunday after the race however, we went out wheeling some hard stuff. I ended up breaking both rear shock mounts off the axle tube. Took them out and kept wheeling until I lost a lower control arm bolt. At that point, we called it a day and I loaded the jeep back on the trailer.
Major updates may be coming to this thread. With the damages to the rear, I am strongly considering a mid arm four link conversion for the rear. Along with out boarding the rear shocks. Although I am also looking at in boarding the rear shocks to get more travel out of a shorter shock.
The main goal at the moment is to repair a badly damaged front track bar bracket. The shimmy I have had for a while is getting worse, and should be addressed tomorrow. Maybe I will actually take pictures this time.
It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.
