Installed a class III hitch from UHaul for a hopeful weekend of snowmobiling. Wiring was a pain in the *** b/c the color codes did not match up, but with my trusty light tester all is good

Re-insured it and using it for my DD again. Totaled the wife's Accent in a nice 4 car pile up on the way home from work last night.

Oh well, great to be back driving the TJ!

I took it out to do some photography at Red Rocks, since the place got blanketed with snow. and they actually shut down the dirt roads that led to trail heads....nerds.


the weather was fine, until a few clicks in and it turned to crap.

Offset my caster.. a little too much.. 9 degrees negative caster. The Death Wobble seems to be gone but I'm going to dial it back in this weekend.

Finally paid off...

Got ripped of 70 bucks at the dealer, then got it stuck as it fell through 8" of ice into a nice mud pit.

thanks, i just ordered the spacer... pushed lift to next weekend. Also ordered sway bar quick release links. I thought the way they wanted you to do it was kinda cheap and labor intensive... went with the Teraflex releases, heard any problems with them?
