In this crawlcast Episode, I'm talking about some non-factory options, The Ford 8.8, Dana 60, and the GM 14 bolt. I'm also going to give you some closing thoughts.
In this Crawlcast episode, I'm covering the Dana 30, 35c, and Dana44 (Also the 44a).
Of course your stock sway bar limits your suspensions travel, that's it's job. So it's only natural to do someting about that to get the most out of your rig off-road. I've owned a few Jeeps, and never really got the point of the Anti-Rock. Sure, it sounded convenient, no more crawling under my rig to pull pins and tie things up our of the way.
I did a series on Axles for JTS. This was the intro, basically covering a lot of necessary terms.
This was a segment I recorded, but didnt air on JTS. It's all about the trail rating system, and what you can expect.
The crawlcast is sort of back! I'm going to use this as a mechanism for distributing some of my JTS, or non-JTS worthy content. Stay Tuned!
I've run into a person or two who have been a little confused by the trail rating system that we all take for granted. It's a topic that can be slightly confusing, mainly because not everyone follows the same scale, and trail difficulty can be a very subjective topic. An "easy" trail to me, might be a nightmare to someone else. In order to level the playing field, and make sure that everyone can pick their trails on the same scale, we need a common set of ratings.
I've started down the path of adding a 3-point harness to the rear of the LJ. I've started some rambling on the subect in another blog post. My intention is to install the harness so that my 6 year old daughter can us it. I don't do any crazy wheeling with her in the Jeep, but I still want her safe, and I figure this should do the trick.
I made this video once things were completed, Watching this, and reading this article, should give you a pretty good idea of how to get this all done. Enjoy!
