[QUOTE=Kiefer316;245317226 Just gotta fix my Damn cooling system in the xj... ran nice and Cool this morning. Now just starts getting really hot. Even with heater on and aux fan switch on too.[/QUOTE]

So take advantage of that heat -- at the trailhead put 8 hot dogs and 4 burritos on that motor -- 4 hours at 230 degrees -- have a buffet and beer for an hour -- motor will cool -- then repeat!!!

Re: CO chapter M&G pics/report.

Hey all, I had great time at my first M&G. Thank you so much for all those that put this even together!!!

Thank you so much to Ridgerunnerxj for the ride from Broomfield. Ridgerunnerxj and Flingshot -- thank you so much for helping with my tcase linkage issues--after going thru underside -- tranny mount was shot -- tcase shifted about 4 inches -- thus causing male end to tcase to pop out of 4-low on the trail. Bushings and Brass Grommet were shot!! Also found end caps to diff side ujts were totally shot - needle bearings were gone!!! This was break down waiting to happen!!! I had an extra set of uts -- took those to Ridgerunners' shop -- He replaced uts in 20 minutes on mid Sat. Am...

Heep just needed some maintenance -- shes almost trail ready again.

Can we schedule a mid June ---M & G / FLEX Ramp up in the Denver area?

Spring Creek could be the run---Your thoughts?

Lets Go Jeepin!!!

Re: CO chapter M&G pics/report.

Spring Creek is iffy on when it opens. There is a good chance it might be open and passable by mid-june.

No offense was intended to O-Gaugesteamer and his friends. He PM'd me to clear up the fact that dyno tested gains were in fact 280 hp to the wheels over the stock 190 hp at the crank factory specs.

I cleared up with him that the majority of us discussing the gains from that super charger felt that when installed on a lifted, locked, armored, geared rig on 35" tires......... gains would be more like 50 hp or so.

It is at the counsel of my attorney that I should make no further comment on the matter..........

Re: CO chapter M&G pics/report.

I must say, that was a good time! A big to KRONIK for getting it going! It was nice to meet a few new faces and enjoy some Culvers

I'd be interested in both, M&G at Culvers and going to the one in Northern Colorado.
