Marn I think that metering valve stem is supposed to be out all the time, it's been defective this whole time? Looking through my manual for the my Honcho it requires a special tool bolted on to hold it "in" (open) while you're bleeding the brakes.

And yes on the way it operates, manual says "The front brake metering valve assists in providing balanced front-to-rear braking. To accomplish this, the metering valve holds off (delays) full hydraulic fluid pressure to the front disc brakes until the rear drum brakes overcome return spring tension and the linings contact the drums."

I've mentioned before, but if you want to borrow my '78 manual it's all yours for a few days.

We're a good jeep club that mostly talk about brakes, pre-runners, and guns. Jeeps are a very rare topic. Lol

Can you tell us which Magazine? And did you change tires for the flight shots? Doesn't look like the Grabbers in the second pic.

Grabbers are mounted on the truck and the spares were two bfg projects. The grabbers had a light coat of armor all on them so as soon as we got done with the static shots and actually started driving it they quickly kinda disappeared in a layer of dirt! LOL I was railing some silt sections for picture so hard that it was coming off the front tires and flowing in thru the passenger side window net with my foot buried on the gas so I'm sure the rear was throwing as much as the fonts. LOL

Offroad Magazine.

Who knows when it'll actually see print. My experience with the magazine industry thru my job and previous jobs is kinda like they do the photos and get the info and then it's a waiting game to see when it actually shows up. Typically you hear from your friends about it before you actually see it. LOL

I would not mind living up in the northwest, but I hear that everything up there is crazy expensive. Almost as bad as some spots in Cali.

Yup, the pin has never popped forward. I have asked a number of people about this in the past and everybody was all "meh" and didnt really tell me anything.

I contacted BJ's offroad and I'll be pulling the prop valve out tonight, then putting it in the mail. They'll be sending a replacement as soon as they get it back.

I drove up there a few years ago to visit and it's really not that expensive compared to here. Gas was about the same as with all of the food etc etc. And I was staying in Seattle not the outlying cities.
