See if you can come up with factory correct charge numbers. It will be in ounces. Then pick up said volume of refrigerant from auto parts store. I'll get the gauges and pump when I get a chance, and either you can swing by, or I'll come over. Cannot promise it will work, but it may. Does the compressor cycle correctly? Does it blow cold at all? Blow hotter than ambient? Electric Condenser/radiator fan running?

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Please call me crazy and let me know in what situation you would want to winch and use an air compressor?



Power how much would you want for the m8000?

The mindset? Have you not read anything I have written? I am against 99.9% of all gun control. I think the 1986 ban should be overturned. I think that the NFA should be abolished. I think that the BATF&E should be a convenience store and not a Government agency. The fact remains that providing a firearm to felon should be a felony. Consider that my Uncle Wes is sitting in prison for a myriad of convictions ranging from illegal use of a police network computer, funneling police information to a known drug dealer, transporting illicit drugs during the commission of his duties, taking bribes, and providing a known felon with a firearm. Out of those, the only one that isn't a felony conviction is the later. Should it be? As it sits, my Uncle Wes has basically been dis-communicated from the family. The decision has been made that when/if he gets out of prison he nor his wife (also a felon) won't be allowed in any of my families houses. Why? Because doing so would allow a felon to come into contact with a firearm. We don't get rid of the firearm for the person, we get rid of the person for the firearm. I vehemently disagree that this is a mindset leading to the erosion of rights. This is something that in my mind, should have been a felony in the first place.

Side note: I pick up the sway bar from Chrisnvegas on Thursday. Hope it works. Either way, I'll probably be on Nellis this Saturday pressing in bushings. Hopefully I'll have time to swap the control arms as well.
Didn't the hobby shop on nellis shut down?

A lot of people (that I don't know or don't admit to knowing) have ARB's. the TJ Rubi has air lockers as well. I could be wrong but wasn't Powr looking for a set of Rubi axles? Would it be easier/better to use a singular air source rather than having two or three compressors to run all of your air needs?

I did not think that it was designed to be used with lockers. mostly for air tools and filling tires. I am sure that the cfm rating is so low that it could not run very much. I personally don't have $1500 for a winch

It's my understanding that TJ Rubicons have an electric locker that when unlocked act as a limitedslip.

Why couldn't you use it with lockers? Is it an air source? Would you rather have one compressor running your lockers and another filling your tires or one that could do it all? To me, it is as useless as tits on a bull. (ask Kansas if you don't get the reference)

It is my understanding that TJ Rubicons have air lockers that lock with 5 psi and that the compressors are located on the transfer case skid. Course those compressors under my Jeep could just be there for ballast?

I just looked it up. You are correct. Guess I need to figure out another plan.
