Yesterday I replaced my passenger's side hub (unit bearing) on the D30. My jeep was making some pretty bad scraping noises going down the road, and I figured it sounded like a bearing.

I put the jeep up on jack stands so all four tires were off the ground, then started it up and put it in 4wd 1st gear. I let it run so I could listen and find the noise, lo-and-behold.. the drivers side was turning and the passenger tire was not. My front axle is open, so I figured there's gotta be some sort of resistance there, and I tore into it.

Once I got the unit bearing out, it was real clear that it was the culrpit. It was real rough sounding.

I replaced it with a used one (which is in pretty good shape) from when my brother did a swap of his.. It will hold up for a while until I can get new ones to swap in.

Now that your Jeep is part '04 you'll probably notice a slight horsepower increase.

And a slight "not-as-cool-as-my-jeep" increase!

Went out wheeling with the EJC club this weekend for Canada Day.

We went to the Alberta Safari Park near Edmonton.. we had a blast, and the mud was as thick as ever!






After some hotdogs we went out a second time to Bill's Gate. Crazy little off camber and wash out area. My tire pressure was too low (I lost some somewhere on the trail), and I blew a bead a little bit after these two pictures.. getting pulled out I got my passenger side fender pushed in.




Booboo fender. No big deal I guess.. I had planned on putting on flat fenders anyway.



The full trip report is here, and the gallery is here (including some pretty cool videos).

It's so fun to wheel in, but sucks afterwards when you realize the $40 tab to wash it.

Oh well, it's worth it. Not my favorite terrain, but there is too much of it out here to ignore. I prefer technical stuff like hill climbs, wash outs, off camber stuff... etc

Ok here's a little tech for you guys. I "fixed" my front fender today.. I used a hi-lift with a block of wood to lift it up a little above level and let it sit like that for 15 seconds or so to fatigue the metal back to level.

I let off the jack and it looks almost perfectly level now.

Technique:


Before:


After:


-------------

I also put some XJ coils in the front which gained be about 5/8" to 11/16" height.

-------------

One more thing: When I was putting the XJ coils in the front I noticed my passenger front tire was leaning a little.. I grabbed it (it was already off the ground) and was able to move it up and down by hand quite easily. I took of my tire, caliper, axle nut, and got down to the unit bearing. I pulled that out and the bearing literally fell apart in my hands. The outer seal, ring, and inner ring fell out exposing dry roller bearings... I replaced that with a new one and it's all better!

Got my rockers done yesterday! The total cost with material, paint and hardware (not including my labour of course) was about $170 or so.

They are 3/16" formed plate with 1.5" 120 wall DOM tubing for the tube steps. I kept the steps as close to the body as possible so I wouldn't always get the back of my leg dirty when getting out of the jeep.

The inside of the steps are just a tad less than 1" away from the rockers. The tubes are angled upwards 20 degrees. I painted them what I like to call "nth degree grey" to be different.

Here are a few select pictures, check out the full gallery of them here: http://myjeeptj.com/wpg2?g2_itemId=11567
