There was several in the pott's thread in the tail ride section.

Got the steering rack swapped out and now I have to put u-joints in the front shaft. Hoping to get that done this week. Next on the agenda is a fluid change in the diffs and t-case.

Been a while since I updated this i guess.

Swapped in some P4X diffs with 3.69 gears and a rear locker. Also built a drawer set for the back since this is getting more and more dedicated to overland type trips with the kids.

I had to swap the t-case this summer. The front output bearings started spinning in the case.

It sure went good the last time we were at potts. I guess you changed the t-case shortly after the trip?

Yeah. It was getting BAD! :eek: Used case with 29k miles was $100, didn't think that was bad.

Its about time for new tires. I've got nearly 50k on these Coopers. Probably move the Terra Grapplers off my truck to the X and put Coopers on the truck. The Nittos are a little louder than I wanted for the truck anyways.

Once the Zook is going, I'm gonna get a couple things done to the X to get it ready for the summer.

I need to get a rear bumper with a tire carrier. I'm thinking about going with 285/75/17s next to round. Move up about 1" in OD but keeping the same width. I'll have to change wheels though.

This is behind, I've finally received my Maxterra bumper and been working on front end setup some.

I swapped out spacers to a thicker one to get the most down travel out of my suspension. I had to put in taller bump stops because my upper control arms were hitting the inner fenders. That left some shock travel unused so I needed to get that back.
