Re: Sierra fest prep - what do you need to do before SF2019?

draining front diff right now, going to try redline shockproof gear oil , slapped in a new glove box, figured out why the lighter wasn't working, now to chase down why the AC doesn't work. Ive also been working on the wagoneer a ton- new card, new cat, carb tuning, timing, new pcv, etc to get ready to pass smog since it failed two pretests with high HCs.

On the XJ - I got my rear suspension and front steering dialed in a while back with new FK RSMX heims on the tie rod and RE 5.5 leaves and boomerang shackles and its been pretty decent on the road but nowhere near where it was with the slider boxes as far as stability .

Finished the rear disc brake swap, but discovered a new issue with the front brakes that I wonít have time to address. So, as much as had wanted to make it to this event, itís just going to happen this time around. Iíll shoot for next year.

well im hoping ill still be able to go up on Thursday. someone tried to steal the wheels on our truck and boat trailer yesterday while we were at the lake and must have only gotten around to loosening all of them, long story short the rear wheel on our truck came off as we were getting on the freeway and damaged the truck pretty bad.
