    After 240k, the last 60k lifted my original axles decided to tear their boots, noticed when I went under the truck last weekend to do the steering rack bushings and inner tie rods (no pictures)

    It was the pleat right next to the clamps that went.

    So I had a fun day this weekend.


    PXL_20210408_145930006.jpg



    Did the "boot slide mod" on both boots, the rubber inner one about 1.5" and the more plastic outer one about .5" closing the gap from 5" to about 3" marked for monitoring.

    I did the ECGS bushing about 2 years ago, no noticeable wear though the axle on that side does have some groves from being unsupported by the original needle bearing.

    PXL_20210408_170707946.jpg

    All done both sides, front end feels so goo an no play or clunking at all when driving off road, super responsive and stable on road now that the whole front end is new practically.

    As posted in the Headlight Upgrade thread, here is the 'after'. Focus on the light on my neighbors driveway. Its MUCH brighter than anything before so this mod 100% works. I also have my Diode Dynamics Sport fog lights on which is why the light off to either side is yellow, so ignore that. My fog lights used to almost outpower my headlights as far as light output goes. Now you can clearly see the headlights are overpowering the fog lights, which is good!

    For anyone wonder this was like a $170-180 mod, and that's with buying two sets of the headlight bulbs.

    Think I need to aim them correctly if i've never touched the adjustments and these are the OEM headlights? I did put aftermarket headlights on but have since switched back to OEM... no other 'adjustment' changes ever.

    Just a grocery getter
    I got Napa replacements when I went to Colorado and Utah bc they were available but I kept the OEM ones to reboot for spares and ill basically keep doing that until i can justify getting OEM spares

    I'm experimenting. My only concern is what it might do to shoulder checks. I have convex mirrors on my side mirrors, but... So I might move it entirely, but that's why it's an experiment. :)

    It's one of these 1535 sized MOLLE panels. I have another on the way I plan to modify the same way for the other suicide door. Does three things, makes a removable molle panel, covers the window from the inside, and is easy to mount due to the included mounting pegs.
