    Anyone have a passenger brake light for sale? :D

    Also have a few hundred pounds of mud I need to wash off after the back way home.

    It's a challenging obstacle for sure. Was thinking I'd hit my drivers side bedside on that first rock, just cleared it only to get the passanger side on the exit. Oh well.

    Got denied on it a few years ago, front locker pulled me through this time.

    That's the shittiest way to get damage right? Spend a ton of time being concerned about a particular section only to tag a section you didn't think would be an issue. And you got denied? :eek: Hopefully at the beginning because I can imagine backing out of that would suck. Or did you winch out forward?

    I really don't care about the dent. This is as far as I got last time:

    You get all flexed out with 2 tires unweighted leaning against the wall.

    $40 fleabay taillight looks pretty shiny next to the new scratches and dents.

    New air fuel sensor is in and code is cleared.

    And, as suspected, lower shock bearings are shot.

    A wheeling season and a half. And sat in the snow all winter.

    They're cheap. Was pretty easy to get them out after I figured it out. Will be keeping a couple extra around from now on.

    Only took two weeks to get it back together. :anonymous: Thanks to @TMFF for the bearings.

    We'll see if it makes it up north next weekend.

    Been spending all my time on this thing recently.

    It's my new favorite cheap beer!


    In other news, drove it to work this morning. Weird clicks from the front suspension are gone, NAPA power steering pump is howling like no other. :annoyed:

    Anyone want to buy a nicely built, MT 1st gen that could use a power steering pump. :bananadead: I don't want to work on this thing anymore.


    Been thinking about trading in the rexy on a 2nd gen and sell this thing to fund the build. :anonymous: :eek:
