    I blew out the plastic line to the rear ARB twice. First time on Cliff Hanger, it was just past the heat wrap I had it in. Covered the fix an additional 3 or 4 inches with heat shield. On Moab Rim it blew out just past the new length of heat protection. I either need to put a solenoid manifold back in the bed with the compressor or get stainless braided line. I'll have to do price comparisons.

    Saturday on the Big Adventure I discovered my trans mount was missing a bolt. Everyone missed me leg pressing the drivetrain so Nate could get a new bolt in. Also the 4 adapter bolts into the trans were loose like last year. At least this year they stayed tight thru Moab Rim and the drive home.

    Have to say it's very rewarding to say that yesterday I was on Moab Rim and today I drove 470 miles home in the same truck.

    You probably already thought of this but can you run a copper line?

    Only damage was two buckled front fenders (LMC fenders suck), and scratched paint on bumpers and rocker sliders. A year without major problems, is a good year! IMG_7474.JPG IMG_7475.JPG IMG_7476.JPG

    I need to post pictures still, but my carnage list:
    Front ring and pinion
    Cracked frame (again)
    two cut tires
    Dead memory card from the drone
    Very unhappy power steering pump (but it's still working).

    I believe it is from frame/body flex. I ran the stock rusted out fenders, for 9 years, with no problems. I kinked the drivers side last year at BB. We kinked the pass side this year. Might have been @ktmoutfront fault, spotting me down The Fall, on Steelbender! LOL just kidding
