    Had a leaking diff oil seal and then my AC compressor grenaded on me. So this weekend i swapped out my compressor and pulled the CV axle more time and replaced the oil seal. Refilled the diff oil and put the skids back on. Getting the AC recharged tomorrow. Thank god because im headed for 4 days through the Mojave Desert on Friday.

    What kind of light is that in the back of that truck? Y’all open the ark of the covenant?

    It’s a lighted whip. Keeps the bugs away from the fire.

    Damn that last set of pics is pretty epic. If we had desert near by I’d want an off-road rig but trails and mud bogs just tear shit up not my thing but overland open country out there looks dope!

    went and inspected the suspension and gave everything a once over a few weeks ago and discovered my brake lines were bent and went to replace.

    How it should be (fixed now)

    While bleeding the system a rear extended brake line burst. Looks like it was rubbing the gas tank when at droop. 6 years of offroad i guess killed it.

    swapped my rear damaged lines out and replaced with Crown Performance coated braided lines. These should do the trick. Braking feels a little improved.
