    Ick, terrible to be awake and sick all night :/

    If it works out I'd love to go out today AND when Sean is feeling his old self. I'll keep an eye on the thread.

    I'm in with a beard and my newly reinforced steering system!

    Ok, replaced.

    The failure mode was the bottom cap that locates the idler arm fell off, probably with significant persuasion from forces generated by the trail. We shouldn't be able to look through...

    I second loving the 'Zuke. Didn't see it run, but I want one. Maybe that well be my choice for a short and narrow vehicle to compliment the oil tanker I normally wheel with.

    A huge thank you to all the organizers and trail leaders who made this event a reality. Thank you FreakinJeep for leading our run! Here a few pictures and video stills from the trip. I need to get...

    The better I setup and know the truck, the harder the roads I go on, and then I find new ways to break the truck on harder roads, which I fix, then run harder roads..... rinse, wash, repeat.

    I'll...

    And I'll call mea culpa on this one for not putting in the better replacement part when the last one went bad. I figured I could get the original part to last another 1-3 years, but at moderate run...

    That @$%# skinny idler ended my Anniversay run early today. Time to replace the pitman and drag link to match the new beefier idler. The new, original, small idler lasted MAYBE 500 miles this time.
  10. Let me predict which vehicle is going to have a...

    Let me predict which vehicle is going to have a lousy RTI score. The HMMWV has many fine qualities, but articulation is not one of them. IFS, IRS, sway bars, and springs that will run your kidneys...

    Working on making this a family trip. Don't put me down yet, but I'm going to try. For the hmwmv it may be more a vac and scrub than a show and shine :-)

    Yes, it is, and I was concerned about that. The neck looks like it sucked into the aluminum a bit. If would have preferred 1/4" steel, but that wasn't a readily available option.

    HMMWV rock slider install

    I started another thread asking about how to coat these, but this is more about the rock sliders and the install.

    HMMWVs and Hummer H1s have thick aluminum rocker panels that are prone to damage...

    Signed up for moderate for the HMMWV and its new rock sliders, although if it keeps on raining I should have worked out how to make it amphibious instead. Looking forward to this!

    More pics. I didn't put too much effort into the finish given how the truck looks. I think the specs are dust that landed on the surface, and the mottling is due to laying it on too thick. Complete...

    Cobra 29NW CB Radio

    For sale: Cobra 29NW CB Radio for $80. Bought in May or 2017. Currently on Amazon for $130. The reason I'm selling is the HMMWV is 24V and this is a 12V radio, and I get interference when running it...

    Rails came in, and I'm prepping and trying to paint tomorrow. I ended up buying por15 and the prep paraphernalia as it was locally available, but the KBS in Scerb's photo above reviews as good or...

    Yes, it is a factory part. The frame side pivot is where this one failed too, and it was brand new just a few thousand miles ago. When I put the heavier idler in I'll also have to switch the pitman...

    HMMWV, especially early ones, are known for going through steering components. 37" tires with run flat inserts do not give the components an easy life.
  21. I think someone at AM general realized they had under built a part

    The old vs new steering idlers on the HMMWV. Of course I bought another old style before realizing there is a new style, but I'm ready for the next time it goes out:

    I don't use the HMMWV during the winter either, so road salt doesn't bother it. I suppose I could use it in the winter (took it on the fall crawl last year when it snowed), it just doesn't appeal to...
  23. Hah!

    Hah!

    Thanks! Black is my color of choice for this too. I'll clean up the steel, prime, and then rattle can for finish.
