    Yep unfortunately. Randy helped me get it taken care of though. The steering already felt better on the way to the alignment shop. Its there now, I should get it back today

    Did you guys just drench the new cam hardware in anti seize?

    I wish there was a reliable replacement that was grease-able. But from what I have read, the only thing available like that are Moogs and they are garbage.

    It isn't just limited to the military. It is every where. People that don't actually have the skills they need to promote just learn to kiss the right asses and things get taken care of and they inexplicable rise to power...

    EDIT: I am on one this morning....

    Lol we actually remembered after getting everything back together that we completely forgot to apply the antiseize to the new hardware. We hit a couple roadblocks along the way so our minds were definitely preoccupied and probably rushing a bit too. At some point in the near future i'm gonna mark the cams and remove the hardware one bolt at a time to reinstall with antiseize. Hopefully before it seizes up again

    You should add it to your list of preventative maintenance. Once I replace mine, I will pull them every fall and reapply anti seize so I never have to replace them again.

    Yeah, not a bad idea. I definitely don't wanna have to deal with seized hardware again. Huge pain in the ass

    Wondering though, if I mark the cams and put them back in the same positions, alignment should still be pretty much on right? Is it worth it to get alignment checked again after or just roll with it?

    In theory it should be fine. My plan is to check mine right before I get an alignment, since I get one every few months because bouncing around on rocks can push everything out of alignment.

    Yeah truee. I'll just mark them, reassemble and see how it drives. If it feels different then i'll take it in

    Also, yall know if I can just pull those bolts out to apply the anti seize as long as the truck is jacked up? like without removing the shock from the lower mount also?

    I’m not sure, but what I’d do is try, and if they’re under too much tension and not wanna come out, then I’d say no. Then just do what we did yesterday with unbolting it from the spindle and the lower shock mount.

    I did mine one at a time on a drive-on lift with a jack (tall kind) underneath the inner end of the arm so it wouldnt fall down when the bolt was removed. It seemed to me that if i removed the bolt with the suspension drooping it would have a better chance of screwing up the alignment, it just seemed like a better idea to do it with the suspension in its normal range/angle..

    I was also ready with a pry bar to help get it back in place if things shifted. You could probably do it on the ground with a regular shop floor jack too, you'd just be doing it on your back

    Hey gang, will you guys please keep an eye out for a set of OEM LCA takeoffs in reasonably good condition? If you see something in the marketplace, please tag me!

    A piece of @EatSleepTacos swingout still lives on. Mounted his fuel can holder to my empty second swingout. Oh and his trasharoo.

    Hey, how long you have your water port on there Tyler? I just noticed it! I want to build one. Did you add baffles? Did you make it so you could remove it? So many questions. Did you follow an online build guide or just wing it with your natural intellect?

    That's been on there a while.

    It does not have baffles. Not really sure what baffles are to be honest. Its held to the roofrack with big hose clamps. I have worked with PVC a few times in the past and so I designed it myself. It has a couple small leaks, but I think that's from where I used too much pressure the first time. It only leaks when I pressurize it, so it doesnt worry me too much.

    Are you sure you're in the Navy? :D JK, baffles would be round discs the same diameter as the main tube and installed every 12" or so. They would be drilled at the edge of the disc, at the bottom with something like 1" holes to allow the water to pass from one chamber to another but slowly. Most water ports are installed 90 degrees to how you have yours. Yours is the first I've seen perpendicular to the doors. It obviously works either way but if you have it along the cab instead and don't install baffles, then potentially each time you stop or start the water is pounding on the ends. Obviously it won't make the caps pop off but it could put stress on the rack or the brackets. Since yours is side to side that is likely not as much of an issue. And definitely not an issue with a better rack like you have, or better brackets.

    Realistically I might as well not be in the navy. I've never even seen a ship in person... definitely did not know that though.
