Took it for a boot today and had enough of steering crap..

Installed the new Rough Country Steering dampeners will see but may have some clearance issues..

Removed tires.. One front had Bad damage on inside rim and weights knocked off.

Re packed front Wheel Bearings, when taking Driver side Caliper off.. there was one bolt missing.. Gone.
The top bolt hole is stripped..have to get heli coil kit for it tomorrow.
the other Bolt was bent.. kinda wondered why it pulled to one side when stopping..

Drag link is Bent in Bad.. will remove it, straighten and May Truss it Cool

Pics...

Flexed it out after got the brakes back on..

No Issues so far...

Put on Bikini/Safari top.. its cool.. but might be pain in the ass.

rotated tires, checked pressure and went for a drive..

Better.. but going for an alignment maybe tomorrow.

Pics.. I like FLEX Pics Cool

Driving over those speed bumps sure can be rough on a Jeep.

Can't imagine how you did all that, sure must have been something "bad" ... must have been Trailfest/Rocktoberfest as that's about all you did last yr. Hell's was too easy.

I remember you were having a tough time over that rocky section before the bunny hop ... maybe there. There was the time you winched but that was just slippery. Hmm ... Adam bent his HD steering just climbing a stump on Hell's this yr.

Bikini top is nice for those hot days ... and since you park Thumper inside and ONLY come out when its nice ... should be no issue. Will help with that bare spot starting on top of your head too.

Did some re-adjusting changed the steering dampiner mount,

then made some brackets to keep front springs down..
