Louie4 Trail air line fix kit.

Louie4 So, I bought a set of shock mounts for the front axle. I plan to put them lower about 0.5Ē-1Ē. That will take care of my bottoming out but should I consider something different for bumps since I only have 4Ē of uptravel? Or should I just leave it? I will add extended bumps to the back. However, hard bumps are inevitable and I sometimes feel like Iím hittting too hard. Maybe I should get new springs for SOA?

Louie4 Thanks guys. I will buy a pack for the trail. I donít have any real issue with my ARB. I think this line got pinched between my gas tank and diff cover. But weíll see how things go next time.

I carry a few of those as well, and they saved my bacon once when I popped a front hose after it got too close to the exhaust. These can also be viewed as a permenant fix.

paulhead Nice wheeling. I know a lot of people like a selectable locker but I've seen problem after problem with the ARB including this past weekend when a dude blew a solenoid.

RockWoRM If the test is positive... sounds like you'll almost be ready for Moab in May.

Louie4 I need to find some steel. In other news, I got my front locker wired up and it seems to work. Iíll be on the trail Friday to give it a formal test. Iíll take a pic of the dash and what not.

I did the same thing about 15 years ago on the YJ. Needed a little more bump for the 35's.

Louie4 I test drove the Jeep around yesterday. Even took my little girl around the block. I out some bearing grease on the shocks to see how much they would compress under normal driving conditions. I still had 2 inches of up travel. But I need to hit a trail to really see. I hope to wire my front locker tonight.

Dang, thatís a good idea! Easier than cutting and welding. I only need 1/2Ē or so.
