Home made wooden wine cork to the rescue!

Oh and I got an idea on my way home how to deal with my obnoxiously low u-bolts!!! I think it's going to work out pretty good and won't take hardly any work. May even be free if I can use a favor card that I've had in my pocket with a company I deal with!!!

Some of the pics I took today of my hooptie...











I gotta tiny bit of trimming still to do but today was pretty successful. One step closer and more knowledge of what's needed to fine tune this thing. Really though at this point I think once I get it dialed in, it's going to work pretty well with the biggest limiting factor being that it's got such a low stance... Skidplates will definitely be my friend!!!

The Expo looks good on the rocks. You have any more rubbing issues?

Just very minor on one or more tiny spots to trim. The rest is what it is, nothing I can do about it without tubbing it.

Is it bad enough to warrant a little more bump stop or is it livable?

It's livable how it is right now. Just need to trim a bit of sheet metal I noticed the rear driver tire is hooking while airing back up yesterday. No biggie. Biggest issue I'm finding is my low range isn't as low as I'd want it. I never had issues in my old one but it was an auto. This manual needs a lower low.

Front diff drain plug took a nice hit/s and is now leaking. Haven't had a chance to really look at much of anything else yet. Maybe tonight after work or tomorrow before work. Hopefully nothing else needs attention(parts replaced,) or the rubi trip will not be this year. Other things are going to require the money...

Any idea what you can do about it?

Also, here's that tire...

A closer look...

Those little slits are all along the sidewall, probably on both sides.

Not sure what to do with that whole deal yet. I may try to grab another one from that guy, or if we are feeling frisky, we may do the 6 months no interest at discount tire and just do another set on my Moab wheels and sell these five as a set with the wheels. With a good general of course.

I'm so confused... why would you do that? Just go get another one for $100. If you want to run the other wheels take it to mexican tires shop. You'll be all setup for under $200 probably total with buying the one tire.

Just thinking through the keyboard. Lol. Worst case, I'll hit discount tire for a new general and just buy the certificate for it. That way if it fails, I'll have a replacement plan.

Was saying a whole set cause the moabs are 16" while these are 15". Just a momentary loss of all common sense and judgement. Lol

Does discount have that size? I only found them online for a little over $200 a piece.

I figured that is what you were going to say. Just wasnt sure if you some off the wall idea or not. I am not sure of how easy it would be but an F-150 from the same time frame has taller gears just not by much. Doubters are possible but could lead to problems in other areas.

Dunno. I'm sure they could order it. Would take a bit more time, but may be worth a check.
