Awesome.

Today's Jeeping: No updates from ARB, as it's Saturday on at least half the planet's surface. If I feel up to it, I'll pull a front shock to see if there's any appreciable damage.

Unfortunately it's been even worse in the last few days... and the shock issues are NOT helping me out, any.

I might be way off, but wouldnt a major failure of the shock valving have a rough ride because it is on straight spring for the beginning of travel?

No, that was pretty intentional...as was another Elwood reference from a few days back.

I honestly don't know; I need to do a LOT more reading so I can figure out how shocks actually work.

It's been over a year ago since I made this picture. I thought it was pretty damn good, so I'm posting it again. Your beard matches the tail.
The closest Chick-fil-A to me had a sign up saying they were going to be closing for remodeling. I drove by the next day after seeing the sign and the whole building was gone.

Stupid question time (hand raised from the dimly-lit back of the class)

Are you referring to the shaft of the shocks, or axle shafts?

I'm quite a bit interested in how this turns out - your comment about handling over pot holes got my attention. As I'm relatively new to the Jeep thing (at least with a TJ), I had just assumed it was a combination of short wheel base and "it's a Jeep, of course it rides rough." But ever since I bought mine it's had a pretty rough ride; even after changing all my shocks last year it's still pretty rough going over holes and bumps. Jarring, I think, is the best word to describe it. So this has me thinking, is it something else? Something in the axle?
