It is nice knowing when you are in a situation that requires the use of your fenders, you can count on them. A little rattle can in the garage covers up the battle wounds.

Hahaha. Better get used to the feeling. Moab is a lot of that depending on how hard you want to go.

Like the videos, new places I don't remember down there.

When I was on my last wheeling trip I was having issues with that thin CB antenna bracket I made. It was bending and in time will break off so I had a buddy make something for me out of 1/4 steel he had laying around the shop. I don't think this thing will ever break:




Also I have a Synergy tie rod and Engo 9k synthetic winch sitting in my living room. Now I have to find the time to install it! Stay tuned!

THIS WAS MY 1,000TH POST!!

Got my Synergy Tie Rod installed today and I am very pleased with it. The install took about an hour and I am toed in 1/8 of an inch and it drives perfectly. I absolutely LOVED how I could adjust the toe with the tie rod completely on the Jeep and how it came with the TREs over the Rock Krawler Tie Rod.

Here's a side by side of the stock tie rod and the Synergy:


1 ton ends:



Installed on the Jeep (Sorry about the blur):
