this is a shot of my enemy, the third brake light:


it annoys me constantly from the rearview... mocking me:


and worse of all, it rattles and rattles. orignally, the smittybilt xrc tire carrier came with some cheapy rivet-like bolts. those lasted about 3 months. now its a constant cacophony while driving, even on pavement:


i was bested in my attempts to remove the entire apparatus, inside:


and outside, the bedliner. all i did was start smoothing the hexagon shape:


so, to shut the blasted things constant whining/rattling up, i devised a silencer out of a piece of cardboard and duct tape:


stuffed that inbetween to muffle the banging, pressed it into the stems of the broken of rivets to secure it. seems very stable during test drives.



and most importantly, QUIET, again.

i count this as winning one small battle against the third brake light, but its still winning the war.

way back in april, i was tearing up my lil stock jk. had a couple instances where i slid off a rock and brought my underbelly into contact with rocks, some not so good sounding. the worst of them tore off the stock steering stabilizer and bent the frame mount (no pics, yes i know it didn't happen!).

well, that's what i thought until this weekend. crawling around under the jeep since i couldn't get anyone to go wheel () i noticed a subtle bend in my tie rod:


the peak of this bend, is right where the scratch and scuff marks from that rock encounter are:


drove over to the lot to park next to a couple 2010/11s and make sure i wasn't just hallucinating, but no. its bent, not a ton but enough to now be driving me crazy. especially knowing that its been almost 6 months.

ordered up a strengthened tie rod/drag link from currie though....

Currie Enterprises CJ Axle Parts

edit: rofl currie, page is named for cj axles. i guess that's one way to beef up a tie rod, replace it all with a cj axle.
