If you don't watch the whole thing... At least watch from 6:30-6:45!!! It's gotta rank up there as one of the craziest spots in todays motorsports racing scene!

Yeah, I think so. I think it was a combination of issues that culminated for the end effect.

Watched the whole thing. The stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me. What exactly posses someone to stand on a race course with a 3000 lb race truck hurtling towards them at 60+? Never mind the idiots standing next to the jump. Have these people never seen what happens when a truck gets balled up? You would think it would be common sense...

I got lucky and scooped up the LAST sensor housing at pic a part for $6. Through the dealer, it $100! The joys of doing work on a Jeep with the old mopar mindset! Things aren't as simple as in the old days. What we give up in simplicity, we gain in ease of fit and function along with comfort?

The shifting/tire rotation issue was from a broken shifter cable for the TC. It wasnt engaging into 4LO correctly. Luckily, it didn't cause any significant damage, and it broke the rest of the way very near the house on a subsequent testing session. Had to run in 4LO for about a 1/4 mile while making VERY wide, multi-point turns. My girly hands aren't strong and small enough to reach in and shift by hand underneath. I've run it through the selections and seems to be good now. I'm very curious to see how she does in the rocks.

Nope! If it was a JK, that would be a concern, but the TJ is all mechanical, BRAH! That's CLUTCH for shizzle! Roflmao.

Still need to finish installing the remaining three shocks, brake lines(doing front only for the Saturday run, then I'll do the rear as time permits.) I also have to reattach a fitting for the OBA line I had to remove to gain access to the rear TC half. I figured I would be extra super super smart and use some really cool liquid gasket maker material for the TC halves. It never truly hardens or cures and is absolutely fantastic for engine oil applications. As it turns out, though, ATF dissolves the stuff almost as well as brake clean! So my SYE and TC halves had to be disassembled and resealed with RTV!! That effing sucked!
So, once I get the air fitting, rear crossmember support, shocks, and brake lines installed, it's done. At least until I find something else the old AMC gremlins found that they wanted to mess with. All this to be done before the end of Friday night!

I was seriously tripping on it. I don't know how Khris handles all the neat little surprises when doing his custom work. All my stuff is bolt on, and the surprises are driving me nuts! It's all good fun though. Would be more fun if I wasn't on a deadline for one of the most difficult trails in North America in August! I need to work out any and all kinks BEFORE we leave. Don't wanna be in the MONW and have something happen.

In that opening smooth section try more like 120-130mph and in the whoops 90-100mph and weight is more up in the 6000lb range. Either way, dead is dead!

And I told you not to click on that link dude!!!!!!!!!
