Well thanks for dropping in man. I see your build is coming along nicely and I've been creeping on it everytime you update it. Glad to see things worked out for you with the insurance and such. Also really like your hood decal.

I wish I could have made it, been real busy with work and home repairs. Looking forward to seeing some action shots.

I usually just spray the bushings with a silicone lubricant. Worse case, you can always replace the ends with Rock Krawlers new ends they just came out with

Love them on road and off road. They are wearing nicely, just wish they didn't measure so small!

Yes yes I know....This update is supposed to be awesome offroading pictures but it's not. Instead it is pictures of my tranny cooler!




Haven't been having the "hot oil" problem out on the trails but with the temperature here reaching over 100 degrees lately and the amount of continuous high way driving I've been doing it feels like I have the heater on and coming out by my feet so I figured the transmission was going through absolute hell so I gave it some help. TAKE CARE OF YOUR TRANNY!

Love the cooler, I installed mine about a month ago.. It shifts better in hot conditions and it doesnt have problems going into OD.
