    It literally just started doing it yesterday, if it is my springs that’ll be beyond frustrating.

    Well, when you are installing the supercharger would be a great time to do them!

    Is there a definit way to tell these are bad? There was a lot of movement when I would shake the drive shaft or whatever so I’m pretty positive.

    While on the top of a mountain off-roading with 2 other rigs, one of the rigs blew a radiator. The plastic part gave out before he could really tell anything on the dash idiot gauge. We JB welded it to get us down and then he swapped it for an all aluminum.

    Yeah, I remember that I had to modify the section that mounted to the front bumper though. The way they have it on here it was making contact with the radiator. I had to add a downward section and from that and then it was good with the measurements. I also would not trust the angels. I tacked the skid plate and mounted it on my truck and then made some more welds to hold it in place then welded it out. Had to add this section.

    Touche.

    Probably put this on the never ending mod list haha. Noticed my temp climbing by 5-10 degrees at half throttle up hills. Moved the light bar to allow more air flow. But it probably needs more cooling due to lugging around it's own fat ass haha

    Death Valley 2018: Day 4
    You Don't See This Every Day


    ... around 1:00am, the wind got significantly colder, and we started
    to feel moisture in the air. We didn't realize it at the time as
    we zipped up the remaining windows, but the moisture we were feeling was snow...

    So yeah - we went to Death Valley to escape the cold, and we got snowed on.

    You don't see that every day.

    The next time one of you drove your truck will you crawl under it, right after driving it across town or something, and see if the drive shaft is warm to the touch, not burn your fingers off hot, on both sides of carrier bearing?
    Please and thank you.

    How’s much did they charge for the center bearing? If they charged them out seperately.

    Just buy a new CB. Unless you are a mechanic, throwing parts at it is your best bet :D
