    Aaron- Peace man. We all love the same things. I'm willing to rewind and bury the hatchet as they used to say. (Before it was non PC)

  • Quote from WILLYN: “ For what it's worth, the bearing inner race really has nothing at all to keep it from spinning. The nice, smooth, newly greased bearings are supposed to roll on the races and not really exert much spinning force on the race. Harley guys routinely "peen" bores and such to be able to use old and irreplaceable parts., it's a pretty accepted practice. ” I whole heartedly agree. I'd feel way better making it a tighter fit mechanically than counting on what is basically a super gl…

  • Quote from WILLYN: “ Loctite also makes several types of bearing mount products to help with applications like this. ” I use it all the time at work, tends to be green. But I typically use it on sealed ball bearing assemblys. And it's usually at least a snug fit before the loctite. If the race can be easily set into the bore and spun with a finger I'd think it's wallowed out to the point of replacement.

    Quote from shorebird: “ I'm upgrading to Yucon TJ type front axles and in addition to replacing the outer axle seal on the passenger side, having removed the disconnect, I was wondering if the addition of the outer billet aluminum axle tube seals would be recommended. I noticed that the axle is not machined smooth at the location of outer seal which was supplied with the upgrade stuff. ” If it's rough it will wipe those o-rings out in a few miles. Even smooth they tend to not last long.

    Ian - Thank you for taking a few minutes to actually explain it. While I have had my unit bearings unbolted from the knuckles, my spindle nuts have never been off so I really didn't know how it all fit together. Aaron - You come off like an arrogant know-it-all *ASSHOLE* that has no tolerance for anyone that doesn't have the knowledge you have or has the audacity to question it.

    Quote from astape: “ Again instaed of added any useful tech u post dumb fuck stuff that doesnt help anyone. U can not over tightnen a unitbearing. U can under tightnen by not seating the back side of the spindle with the nut. This will allow the weight of the truck to loosen the pressed in bearing. See keith some tech not a bullshit pic. Contribute and dont be a dick. ” Wow Aaron. I asked a simple technical question, and you chose to come back with insults and name calling.

    Quote from astape: “ When u tighten the nut on the stub shaft it sits against a shoulder that sets the preload. U can NOT over tighten the bearings. This is why u shoud not drive with out the stub shaft in the unit bearing. Its real simple i know u have had the front apart on yours and u r not stupid, so y do u continue to say stupid things?

  • Quote from Slimer: “ The thing I don't like about tub mounted spare tire carriers is that, if not properly braced, the bouncing of the spare as you drive will slowly tear the tub apart (happened to me but my tub was not the best). But if that's the route you want to go, make a bracket that bolts to the bottom of roll bar (underside of the wheel well) and extends to the back side of the tub. It would essentially be a large piece of angle; I'm guessing one side would be 4" and the other 2". That w…

  • Googling "destructive shackle testing" brings up a few videos. Most far exceeded the rated WL before they failed.

  • Quote from deadfeat: “ How many are are pulled out? Should be 3 per side. A few TAC welds should hold it fine for the sort term. ” Worst advice ever.

  • Quote from KnoxRents: “ Quote from keith_c: “ Pulling sideways should be avoided in my opinion. ” Most recoveries with people who get stuck in mud or whatever tend to be able to pull straight but it seems like the rock crawling group I tend to ride with always get's themselves in a crazy situation where a lateral pull is the only thing that will get the vehicle in a recoverable position so a lot times there really is no avoiding it. (I'm looking at you especially 2000sahara Example here. ) ” Way…

  • Quote from deadfeat: “ Quote from Kuntryboy816: “ Hmmm... that's pretty interesting. So gauging off of that video and how a good portion of recoveries tend to be lateral pulls, would it be better to have the shackle mount be vertical instead of horizontal? That way the pin would allow the shackle to rotate w/o any reduction to the WLL say if the vehicle you're recovering is at a 60* angle from the front of passenger side. ” Just integrate additional d-ring mounts on the bumper ends. Gives you fr…

  • Quote from KnoxRents: “ Quote from deadfeat: “ Makes more sense with a commercial truck tires being $3-400 each x18. ” And they VERY thoroughly inspect the casings to make sure there is no rot or broken belts. Also they will NEVER retread a steering tire for obvious reasons. ” That's not completely accurate. Buses are not allowed to have retreads or regrooved tires on the steer axle. Trucks can have retreads; but not regrooved, depending on the load capacity of the tire. I would never run them.

  • Quote from whatevah: “ Quote from Kuntryboy816: “ Quote from Slimer: “ Quote from flutterby: “ Ideas for places: Starbucks in Middletown Dunkin Donuts on Rt 13 North of Odessa ” Now that we have a date voted on, which location? ” I'd vote for either or but I can't figure out how Jerry reset the poll for last month. ” there ya go. ” I will always play the devils advocate. If that gets me a video of some dweeb (pretty sure it was Sal) clapping so be it. Why have 2 options and the option to vote fo…

    I'm going to try a few of these. This guy seems to have the best method. [youtube]http://youtu.be/YwGAkC4o_xY[/youtube]

  • First pic is a dry rotted tire. I hope you aren't driving any loved ones around on that. Blow out on a Wrangler at highway speeds has no good ending. And I could see trying the vulcanizing thing on a 37" IROK. But those are old shit tires to start with. Tires/brakes... Don't go cheap, they are where the rubber meets the road.

  • I would never try to repair a sidewall for highway use.
