Where are the cabins that some of you stay at? I need to get that booked.
Moab rim rv campground is the main place to be.
Done. Just booked for 9/7 - 9/10.
We also finished a 650 mile Texas road trip, and 75 mph is no problem. It sucks down the fuel, and I'm pretty sure l'll be deaf by the time I get to Moab, but it's on.
If I drive mine I'll be bringing ear plugs.
Sounds like you guys need some better mufflers. Every time I mess with my exhaust, the suburban gets a little bit quieter.
More dynamat and new door seals. That's what I need. The MBRP quiet tone is doing its job, but the 6.2 is just plain loud above 2200RPM.
I can barely hear my exhaust or tires it's the wind noise that gets me.
Window seals and tires are what I need now to quiet things down a little. The generals keep getting louder as they wear and the rear doors blow cold air into the cab through the rotted out window seals. Blows right on the back of your neck.
Mine just has a whine from the passenger seat.
Have you gotten yourself an ejection seat yet?
Looks like after the Tuttle Creek trip I need to have a list bigger that this.
The shackle flip and new heavy duty shackles are done
Got the drive shaft back from Tom Woods---had it lengthened after the shackle flip and moving the axle back 1 1/2"
New shocks for the rear are on
What is left to do:
1. Install the Ram Assist...includes new Dana 60 cover with tabs welded on for ram assist
2. Port the 2WD steering box for ram assist
3. Install the new tie rod and ends
4. Adjust brakes
5. Tuff Country 6" front springs and new bilstein shocks
6. Roll cage
I have all the parts except front 6" springs and roll cage tubing.
Why attach your cylinder to the diff cover? You have a mile of axle tube to attach to, it's a much more solid connection than the diff cover.
I can't remember who's rig I saw but they had this setup and I thought it was a good way to go. Is the diff cover not a good option?
I have 1/2" tabs to do the axle tube if it is a better option. I got the larger tie rod along with the clamp for the ram side of the assist to hook up to the tie rod from ORD.
I never liked the cover setup.
If nothing else, the axle is solid, and you don't have to pull the ram to service the diff
Service the diff? Is that something that I am supposed to do?
Who are you?
I have been called many things.
Around here you are Grumpy Old Guy.
I have been called worse.
Even around here!
