Did I send everyone their pictures from yesterday or did I miss someone. Let me know if you didn't get an email with pics please. I want to make sure everyone got them. Thanks

I know why. It's because that screaming chick isn't in the videos. She needs to be in all of them even if she is screaming for no reason at all.

I have to admit prior to yesterday it had been a while since I used the old girl. But I have really got the itch back. Thanks again for a great day.

I'm looking for some sway bar disconnects for my TJ....on the cheap. It's stock height now, but will have a 4" lift. I don't want to spend a lot on stock height ones, just for them to be useless once I lift it. Any ideas or leads would be great. Otherwise, I'll just try to make something temporary.

You did say that you don't unlink offroad. Pretty sure that puts a bunch of stress on the links. Especially the OE ball type. Some cheap $20 ones from Autozone should work until you get your lift.

Why don't you unlink? It only take a couple of minutes and it's so much more comfortable. I can understand not airing down. That's a huge PITA.

I went through 2 pairs of OE links before I knew I was supposed to unlink them. Before I switched to my Zone disconnects, the last OE link ball popped completely out when the axle slacked. If I remember correctly, that was on Rocky Gap just after the creek that crosses the trail.

My TJ already had the lift with disconnects on it when I bought it so I'm not sure but are the factory ones more then just a bolt? I never actually even unhook both sides on mine. I just unhook the lower mounting point on the drvr side one, flip it along side the sway bar and I have a little bungy type thing I use to secure it there out of the way. If it's just bolts, it would be nothing more then a single bolt to do similar.

I'll work on the screaming chick in the next video! This one might really be a good screamer cause she is at other times when we're together!

Yeah, you know how aftermarket disco's have bolt top and bottom with a flex at the top? I think they're called a heim joint. OE has bolt top and bottom with a ball and socket joint just above the middle, but the ball socket has limitations. If you just removed the bottom bolt, you wouldn't be able to fold the link up and out of the way. You'd have to remove the top and bottom bolts if you want to unlink OE links. Really odd design. When I used to leave mine connected offroad the ball would round out the socket.

Looked like fun! I just scribed to your channel Powr, I though we were the only ones that had a kitty that played fetch,

I did that run a few years ago, stock suspension, 31s, and only scraped the hitch a few times on the way down on the Pahrump side. Looks way different now!

Yeah, it looked a lot different from the last time I ran it too. I'm gonna try to start posting more vids on YouTube. I'll bring the camera anytime I'm shooting or jeeping. Should make for some good vids!

Rocky Gap looked like it was a lot of fun ... would've gone on Saturday. Just got back from my offroad activities near Bullhead City, AZ. It was a ton of fun, and Secret Pass was epic. I'll post some pictures when I can.

Even the name sounds cool. How far was it? I don't like to drive too far from home. Lucky for me all my favorite trails are about 20 miles away.

How was your birthday? Get anything good?

It's in the mountains east of Bullhead City, but you have to go to the other side of the mountains (from Golden Valley) to get in. Absolutely fantastic. Here's one of the better pictures of the canyon ... for perspective, these cliffs are easily 500 feet high, maybe more.

Oh, and it's jeepable, just gotta go up and down some waterfalls, but I've done worse. Would've done it today (instead of just hiking) if we had any other rigs out there with us.
