Re: Reno Fest 2019

I bet you if you put it out there you can get a few guys to come help you check out some Carson City trails. I know in the spring and the feet of snow get off the ground, I love you get out there and take a look around with you.

Re: Reno Fest 2019

Bump...we're just over two months away from the Reno Run. Time to start working on junk to get it ready. What do you have to do to your rig to get it ready? I need to change the intake/exhaust gasket and do some general maintenance.

Re: Reno Fest 2019

I need to do some general maintenance as well, grease u-joints, annual oil change, put on the new registration sticker and charge the battery as sadly the Jeep hasn't moved in quite a few months..

Re: Reno Fest 2019

I'm hoping to get a ton done this weekend. I'm redoing my suspension and steering setup after watching my rustys steering flex and roll while turning lock to lock in camp last year

When you want to be someone you drive a lifted JK, when you already know who you are you drive an old XJ.

Reno Fest 2019

I am starting next weekend. As there has been snow at my house since thanksgiving. I have to do annual axle inspections. New/used driveshaft swaps. Re arch my rear leafs and install traction bar. Replace rear shocks. Install my new lower control arms. Need to change my steering box. I have new battery cables. Then just major suspension and body adjustments to fit my new 37s. Then if i have time ill be installing my winch finally and steering brace haha. Been saying that for two years.

Re: Reno Fest 2019

The darn struggle bus hit me today. Went to pull the jeep out of the garage to swap springs and the battery was dead so it's on the charger. (Slow charger)

I decided to not waste the day so I go to swap the shackle bushings on the MJ since "it'll be an easy swap; it's only 4 bolts..." both upper bolts were seized to the bushing sleeve and made the project take a good part of the day. MJ is now back on the ground which is awesome, but I did find some cancer on it that I'm not looking forward to fixing. We'll see how long my cleanup/rustolium converter paint holds out for before I have to actually patch it.
