Yep - register in El Paso county (Colorado Springs) and kiss that problem goodbye.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

It'll never run right that clean. You better leave a valve cover bolt loose so you can get some oil on that thing.

If it doesn't run right, it won't be because it's too clean.

It'll be because of some other things changing it from a 2001 model...

Not a bad truss by any means, but leaves some to be desired for me.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

If it were mine I'd cap it off where it meets the coil pads and plate the backs of the upper control arm mounts to box them in and give a bit more weld surface to the truss. I would also probably run a plate diff cover so that I could add a tie-in from the truss to the cover since it doesn't weld to the housing.

I had to revisit the "Big 'n Little" club yesterday: Jeep passed emissions on the first try.

After a trip to the alignment rack, it drives like I just installed $400 in wear parts.

Got the ACOS on the MJ to level out the front. Added about 2". Also swapped over my quick discos, BPE and shocks.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

Thanks! Had been debating on swapping some Moabs but I like ECCOs. Figure once I get around to the lift and all the other crap I'll move up to a 17" with the WJ swap.
