You have too much air in your tires....

Theres this thing called a "bump" that might help you out in the future!

Looks good!

I think you might need a different converter, it'll help out with the brakes since your idle speed is a little higher than stock.

I can't believe I'm going to do this....but...

X2 on GeoBoy...

...bump it's, not just a hair accessory...

...air, good UNDER the tires, not so much IN the tires...

Either way, it looks like the rig will be very capable after a little debug and "getting to know you" time....nice work!

Don't listen to those other guys. Put more air in your tires. They're too low and you don't have enough ground clearance.

Thanks Jim, I'll give that a shot... :)

Think 60 PSI would be good?

For and update,

Went to Twisted offroad this weekend.

Steering still getting hot, so Im moving that around tonight, also I think I have narrowed it down to the engine getting vapor locked..

So I am going to fix some of these problems, I also bent a 3/8" axle truss.. Just a tad, but that got fully boxed last night..

Also found that 3 psi in the 42's works amazing, thanks to the double beadlocks, never lost a bit of air. And adding the 100 CC's of oil per shock made the suspension so neutral it was un-real.... SO happy with the suspension...!








37" irok swallowed...

Installed some CM Performance Rear 300M axle shafts.

I think these should hold up to some abuse this week at harlan...
