Nice looking Rubi

Believe me I'm trying.
Going to look at the trackbar tonight and loosen/re-torque it on the ground. Installing a bigger steering damper too.
Also going to rotate the tires around to pre-DW setup.
I'm getting to the end of my rope!

Not TO my JK, as much as FOR my JK....

I had an old suction-cup style mount from a broken GPS, an old broken tripod and an idea.

Voila!









This won't be much use if I try and slap one of my DSLR bodies and long lens on it, but it is fine for a small video camera, or an SLR body with a short, wide lens.

It's too late out right now, my video gadget doesn't do real well in low light, but I will post a sample video tomorrow.

Video

The mount was a success but the camera is a failure. I need to get a camera with image stabilization if I am going to shoot video from the dash.

Got my bumper a few days ago and went to shop to schedule it getting installed and he said he wont be able to do it until im already gone for school. My dad said he'd send me a picture with the new bodylift and bumper though, gonna be torture.

No need to be scared.... it is 4 bolts.

It would be a waste of money to pay someone to do it.

I straightened my steering wheel a tad, it was a little off after my lift a while ago. Didnt set off any warning, just annoying to hold the wheel a hair off on straights.

I also adjusted my toe-in some. I had a slight vibration in my steering wheel after adding my 35" tires and never got a proper alignment. Its just about gone now!

This site is great. I dont know what people did before the internet, no wonder my dad spent half of his life out in the driveway under cars.

Use a good wrench, and put it on snug...

Can you explain it with more detail? What's the difficulty?

I have a new bumper coming so I like to help solve the problem.
