^Thanks Chris. I'm kind of torn on the whole opportunity. The job sounds amazing, the company sounds good, but I really like living in CO and have no desire to move... especially to a state that has no wheeling opportunities. I guess I'll wait and see if they give me an offer.

In other news: I might actually work on the truck a bit this weekend. I'm planning on making some spring keepers to tie the main leaf and the 1st support leaf together. Hopefully, this will force my suspension to utilize my orbit eyes more...

Depending on your field of choice there are jobs out there. If you can find one where you don't have to move and just travel that'd be good. Where would they having you moving too?

What kind of spring keepers are you using. I used some I got at the parts store and they work but not all that great. Really need two per leaf with one on each side. My leafs still fan a little bit, they can only do it so much though.

^The job would be in the Polaris R&D facility, in Wyoming Minnesota. The job sounds awesome, but I'd really miss Colorado's mountains and wheeling. From what my cousin tells me, Minnesota's liberal establishment have basically closed off all public land from motorized vehicles so there isn't much out there. Beyond that, the trails are mostly mud and I'm a rock crawling guy. In the mean time, my boss at my current job is really supportive and is looking for growth opportunities for me... and I just got a promotion last month. So, either way, I'll be ok. I just want to be sure I'm making the right decision.

Now. I'm looking at making my spring keepers out of steel strips from a local steel recycler. Basically just get some strips, heat and bend using an oxyacetylene torch and attach to the support leaf. I'm thinking about just using tack welds there. (so I don't mess with the metallurgy of the leaf) Hopefully, a cheap, easy and fun project that will actually net me a little more flex!

Built up the spring keepers. Hopefully, this will force my joint to move a little bit more. It's hard to see, but I clearanced underneath to allow the lower spring to move.

Monte just did. Can't remember who did it that showed me...

I've had all of the parts since January and still haven't gotten around to it...


*Edit*
I remember now, it was Jon. Here's the method I'm doing...

^Sweet, thanks for the link! Haha, I've got all the parts too, but haven't gotten around to it. Since I'm low on cash for mods, I thought it might be time to address this.

Monte, or anyone else, what do you guys think of the mod?

^Well, if you like yours, I'll have to copy you! Do you have any idea what the capacity is? How often do you have to fill it?

I just did that as well last week. It's about half of what stock was. It's easy. It works. Hasn't fallen off yet. I did a screw top instead of just a loose cap.

PS check your voicemail
