A week ago Tuesday, thought I was getting the death worrble, front end was shaking on every dimple in the road on a 400 mile trip. Then Thursday on the way to dinner it felt sluggish and pulling like a flat tire. Jumped out to check, thinking about the wife asking why I checked the air pressure in the spare before leaving on this trip and the big I told you so she had coming, then I smelled the rotor. passenger caliper locked up and the rotor was a very nice shade of red. Towed it back to my parents house and changed front calipers, thankfully the rotor and pads suffered no damage. 400 miles home and all week she is riding like a dream, even picked up 1 mpg getting 20 now.

I changed mine at 4k.

Do it right the first time or don't do it at all.

So over the past tho weeks (not quite today) I started and almost completed my stereo install. New speakers all around. 3 channel amp with custom wood and fiberglass sub box. Massive PIMA but wouldn't change it for the world. Reverse camera, blue tooth, iPod connectivity.... Should... Should come this way

Ps. Sub and amp still to be coveted with flat cover in same bed lined mdf (will post) so total storage space taken will be about4-5 inches across

Plastidip rockers and Ace rock sliders. Installed the Rough Country bumper caps and Rigged Ridge light bar. Haven't hooked up the lights yet. Done for the day. The installation although easy, fought me every step of the way. One of those days I guess.

I dunno his forum name but one of the docs I work with and I shared a parking lot today. Have me a good perspective of just how much body armor kills your height. He's running 35s on the left, mines 33s on the right, fyi. He's loaded with steel, I just trimmed the fatty plastics

I don't get lost, just temporarily misplaced
