    Ball joint spacers and lift blocks, am I doing it right?
    Well, it's been awhile since I updated this thread. So, I shipped the 3rd back to Trail-Gear and UPS promptly lost it! I was starting to wonder why I hadn't heard back from TG and that's when I figured out UPS lost it. Got TG on the phone and
    their salesman Chris helped with UPS and after another 5 days lost they found my 3rd. The 3rd made its way back to Cali, it arrived today. TG immediately had their tech tear it down. They determined it was a defective carrier bearing. The faulty parts were replaced and Chris had the 3rd back on the UPS truck same day, he shipped it 3 day select too. I thought that was a nice touch.

    I was pleasantly surprised on how Trail-Gear handled that return process. Hopefully all goes well when I plug it back in next week.

    Guy,

    Got the runner back together today.

    The only thing left is to wire the switch for the locker.

    No kidding and it's literally just the switch. I just need to decide where I want it.

    Finally, the ARB works!

    Now I need to test this thing out. Going to head up to Citrus with a small group on the 19th, should be able to put it to work.

    There's a clay pit with a pretty good climb that no one made it up last time we went there. Ryan gave it hell last time and I could only make it down it. That's the challenge for the 19th.

    Guy,

    Jon, thanks for the invite but I can't make it that weekend.

    I wired the ARB switch yesterday.
