Come over and we can swap the Tera 2.5's in pretty quickly and that will answer your question .
I may do that...
Trust me when I say if I had those, I would be swapping out my rough country springs. And I totally forgot about your brakes. Doesn't Jankoids sig say something about a set of curries he has for sale?
The Nth stuff can still be had, if you know where to look...
I was bored, so here's links to several springs for sell on the forum.
Not bad at all, price-wise; I wish I could use a 4" spring!
this is pretty cool, i havent been on the forum in a really long time because of work, but sundowner's thread is still going. keep it up!
No worries, man...we're not slacking off anytime soon. If anything, it's about to get much, much
I run an electric on my other wheeling rig. There has been more than one occurance where the fan, relay, or wiring has failed ending my wheeling day early. I vote stick to the far more reliable mechanical setup. You don't do deep water crossings that I have seen, so no need to worry about the fan contacting the radiator.
The mechanical fan is
a marvel of reliability, and reliability trumps pretty much everything in the Wasteland...so that's a very solid point that you make. I wish I could find a mythical seven-blade, though; even if I didn't use it, I'd like to have one just for the sake of having
I would bet that the shocks are responsible.
Have you driven the jeep without shocks? It won't hurt anything to do so.
Sadly, you would lose that bet; I've swapped the fronts out for a brand-spanking-new set that OME sent to me when I contacted them about the increasing firmness, and there was no real improvement. I've also driven with the shocks removed from the front, and while that was a terrifying roller-coaster of a trip around town it only showed how much ride-control the shocks were providing; the stiffness and harshness were still there.
Would a man with any regards to his own safety study electrical engineering and
settle on snowboarding as his favorite "athletic" hobby?
I suppose that all depends on the amperage and slope of the hills.
Wanna guess what I'm having for dinner tonight?
First, find a friend and swap springs (you will have to be nice for a day to accomplish this task).
I keep telling you guys - and girls
- that I'm Neutral Evil; that doesn't mean that I'm callous, or that I'm not nice. Alignment doesn't dictate behavior; it mostly only dictates which warding spells will give you a problem at the most inopportune time.
I thought about swapping mine with Beasley's, just to see what happened; either way, he has the aforementioned 2.5" Tera springs...so that swap would pretty much eliminate the springs as a candidate. The only thing that might tell us more - as in, whether or not there's a problem with my particular
set of springs - is to swap his identical
OME 2.5's into Greta's front end and then go hit a bump or three.
Second, never say electric fan or Blaine will find you.
I'm think I'm safe because I'm pretty
sure that Blaine doesn't read this thread...but there's no telling, with him.
As it stands, I don't have to worry about it just yet because I found a fan clutch in-stock at one of the local parts houses and decided to go ahead and swap it in; I can still go electric later on if I like, but for now I've got one potential failure point eradicated. I'll post some photos of the whole process - tensioner and all - tomorrow at some point. Maybe. Time for beer and steak, now.
