Re: Carnages!!

since i sold the truck i used the baby jeep to tow the popcamper back yesterday (after I wiped, swept, and mopped it out) to its storage location (it was borrowed from a buddy). while driving there i started smelling brakes. After the 15 mile drive the front brakes were smoking when we got there.

I drove it back home after dropping the trailer off. The brakes were stuck at some points so back i was wailing on the Jeep to get it to move. It was down shifting into 2nd to hold 35mph.

Got it home. Both front calipers were showing signs of being seized up. I replaced them both with used units I had in the garage. Haven't taken it for a test drive yet...also looks like the valve cover is leaking...

Not sure I blame the wheelin from winterfest, but its a carnage i found after

I think that it sitting in the garage for a year waiting on floorboards may have been a part of it...

mac 'long post just to say stuck calipers' gyvr

Re: Carnages!!

I've got a dead spot in my steering. Looks like steering box.

He does that so he can get it on his trailer.

Re: Carnages!!

Pulled my leaking right rear axle ... Looks like Haspin mud strikes again. There was mud everywhere...

Nothing money won't fix.

Re: Carnages!!

Walked up to my heep outside the University Center today (Just washed it yesterday). Realized I really took some paint off the drivers rocker. That is all

might want to wory about it sooner rahter than later. It sucks when you have to pound the door sill back out so your door opens and closes kind of normally.

Take a look at revs poo pipe solution, that's likely what's going to happen to the MJ.
