    Synthetic winch Line Upgrade

    So I got to use my new Synthetic winch line today. Okay, I might be a convert
  6. So I took S/S in for its first oil change... and they found a leaky (weeping) rear main seal... not bad enough to leak onto the driveway, but just enough to sweat on the bellhousing... on the plus side it’s covered by WARRENTY 👌🏻 I couldnt pass up this photo... seen the name of this business and just had to....

    Let's talk headlights.

    I noticed after a hard rain, one of my KC headlights got water in it. Not a happy camper at this point. Time to follow lead and go to LED Projectors

    Seat belt problems

    I bit the bullet and ordered a new one. Safety first, even if they are just a passenger, lol

    Winch

    When deciding on a winch, remember that a winch is like a trailer, once your friends know you have it, they will want to use it.

    Hill Start Assist

    I have been thinking along the idea of installing a line lock, like used on drag cars. But for now, I am pretty handy with the hand brake.

    Synthetic winch Line Upgrade

    I know I am Old school and Old, but I finally replaced my steel cable on my Warn 10k. Due to my Partners and Kids fighting the steel cable while using it, I decided to go with Synthetic Line. I however didn't go with the Warn line for $400 but instead opted for the Astra 1/2 shielded 23500 x 92". It fit on the drum. Of course I cleaned the drum and the hause fair lead. The Warn didn't come with rollers so there is that. I will give a follow up after it is used a few times.

    Anti roll....

    Guess it is time to recenter the steering wheel again. But at least I am getting good at it. lol

    Driveshaft noise

    Mud and Sand both fun to play in but play heck on all moving / rotating assembly parts. Good cleaning and maintenance is a must.

    Sound systems...

    I had nothing but front speakers when I bought my JK. Mark gave me his stock sound bar with after market speaker upgrade. So now I think I am tripping to real sound. I know it could be better, but I know the acustics of a soft top 2 door isn't worth high dollar sound quality. About all you can go for is louder tunes.
  22. I had read that Jeep wasnt ensuring that the Smaller than micro Blade type fuses and relays and breakers werent fully seated... I got mine in March and checked mine yesterday 2.5 months later and I had 46 fuses or relays or breakers that I heard snap into locking position... the half sized mini blade fuses are different than normal and snap into position... Remove the cover and press down on them I bet a few click...
  23. Frame welds... Between May 7, 2018 and Aug. 21, 2018, Jeep’s Toledo North Assembly Plant used frames with an “off seam [track bar] weld location” to build up to 18,055 new Jeep Wranglers. The result, Jeep says in its NHTSA Safety Recall Report, is that likely around 720 vehicles (4 percent of the recall population) have track bar brackets that could potentially “[separate] from the frame.” This sounds like something you’d never really want to happen to your vehicle for a number of reasons, but Jeep identifies that it could possibly lead to reduced steering response and even a crash. The first step for dealers is to lift the vehicle and check out the build date code on the frame. If that number is greater than or equal to 126 and less than or equal to 156, then the vehicle was built in the May 7, 2018 to Aug. 21, 2018 window, and its owner should be offered a loaner car as the Jeep gets inspected further. Vehicles with frame codes in that range will then have their track bar bracket welds—both the inboard and outboard ones—cleaned. From there, with the steering wheel cranked to the left to help give better access, dealers will paint the vehicle’s three-digit VIN to the outboard frame bracket, and take a picture of both welds like so: The first step for dealers is to lift the vehicle and check out the build date code on the frame.

If the representative looks at the photos and determined that the welds are in the right spot, then the Jeep is all set, and no repair will take place. But if he or she finds one or both of the welds to be out of place, dealers will arrange to have a “Technical Weld Specialist” come to make the weld repair. But before that can happen, the dealer has to take some stuff apart.

But if he or she finds one or both of the welds to be out of place, dealers will arrange to have a “Technical Weld Specialist” come to make the weld repair. But before that can happen, the dealer has to take some stuff apart. To prep the outboard weld to be repaired by the weld specialist, dealers are asked to disconnect the battery before lifting the Jeep, remove the left front wheel, undo the track bar nut and bolt shown above, and then take the track bar off of the poorly-welded bracket on the frame. From there, Fiat Chrysler says its “Technical Weld Specialist will perform the repair on the outboard weld.” There are no further details on how exactly the specialist will conduct the fix, but clearly the job will involve welding that bracket back onto the frame somehow. Fiat Chrysler told me via email simply: “Weld will be made to comply with specs.” Once the weld specialist’s job is done, dealers will bolt the track bar back onto the frame (with a new nut and bolt), throw the wheel back on, lower the Jeep, torque down the track bar nut to spec, and then give the vehicle back to the customer. That is, unless the inboard weld also needs to be fixed... Repairing the inboard weld is significantly more involved than fixing the outboard one. In addition to lifting the Jeep and removing the left front wheel, the air dam has to be taken off, and four steering gear mounting bolts have to be removed (to get the steering gear box away from the bracket weld location) after the track bar has been unbolted from the frame bracket:
