The source of my squeak/thump woes:




Got a thread going about those Poly Perf bushings so we'll see if they will work. If so, I'll be placing an order tomorrow. But I see no reason they shouldn't. In the meantime, the Jeep sits.

One of the best days of owning my jeep was the day they were all removed and switched to Johnny joints. Hope those other bushings work for you

Just Empty Every Pocket.......yup they are empty all right.................

After calling about 5 different companies, I placed an order for my bushings from Bell Offroad. Ordered 3 day shipping so hopefully they'll be here this week.

Sweet, hopefully they work out for you. That squeaking is rediculous.

Yea I hope so too.

I saw and I kicked you btw. I had to explain to my treasurer that you do not go to State and are likely trolling Clay and I.

Not trolling, thought maybe I could be an honorary member. I'll probably be at any of your URE runs. But that's cool, didn't know it was so serious on your "unofficial" page.

Unofficial page is there so we can discuss stuff that could get us into trouble on the official page. By that I mean non-sanctioned stuff.

I took the tire I cut at Uwharrie to 3 different tire repair stores and all said they wouldn't touch it. They said some of the steel bands were cut and even though they do vulcanized repairs it would not be safe to repair it so I'm SOL :/ Only option is put a little patch on it and put a tube in but even then it wouldn't be safe for road use so it will only be an off road only spare. What a shame that the little cut below basically ruined my tire


BUT in other news I bought a new car over the weekend so Jeep money might be tight for a little while since I have something else to mod

Its a 2002 Trans Am. LS1 with a LS6 intake swap, 6 speed with a short throw shifter, long tube headers, high flow cats, Hooker muffler and some aftermarket performance shocks, swaybars and control arms (not sure on brand yet).
This thing is Fast and so much fun to drive! Its definitely faster than the 96 Corvette LT1 we recently got rid of and handles just as good if not a little better, and it sounds amazing!


2002 tj sahara 3" lift 35" km2, AtoZ rockers, 8k warn, 4.56 gears, lock-rites front and rear
