    Nice Dream!!! I have not been down there in about 30 years.
    Who knows when I will be trail ready. I blew out both front brake lines. I had a hard time finding this fitting:
    2018-06-05 18.36.03.jpg
    It has the fluid going through the body of it to a Banjo bolt.
    All I could find were these:

    Fluid went into the body and out both sides

    So I capped each side and drilled a hole so it went through to the bolt.2018-06-03 06.16.26.jpg

    First it happened to the passenger, then driver. Ugh.

    I must be bored or something... I purchased this:

    2018-06-06 19.10.46.jpg

    It is a Flex A Lite 116. I have a flex fan on it now, but I know it is robbing me of a few HP and maybe (maybe) some MPGs. Plus it is pretty loud as fans go. I bought a adjustable thermostat for it as well. I am going to put in a switch so I can turn in off if I ever come up to a water crossing. That is if I ever get to wheel again... I wish the Real Estate market would go back to normal.

    ^^ I like that idea

    Out with old:

    In with the new:
    Attachment 12943

    It is smaller than the other 19" flex fan, but feels like it is pulling more air. Have not driven it yet, but it kept it cool at idle for about 20 mins. Way quieter than the other. Now I hear all the engine noise.

    Bought a box of stuff of CL last year for $150. Included stuff for Cassy's Jeep and general off road stuff. In it had at spindle kit for a rear spare tire carrier. So I drew this up:

    And it is now comming together:
    Attachment 12945

    Checking fitment:
    Attachment 12946
    Attachment 12947

    Seems to be working fine. I have to work on the latch and adjustment.
    If you remember I bought a Kayline tire and Jerry can holder awhile back. That was grea but it wouldnt fit my tire!!. It seems they only fit up to a 33" between the can holders.
    I will probably finish it up and sell it on CL for someone with 33s".

    I didnt get a pic, but after I did the SOA in the front, I was saggin a lot in the rear. (I was before as well). The stock spring bucket/perches look like this:

    I cut the bottom out and reinstalled the shackle so it hangs down.

    About perfect for what I needed. BUT. Now I need to change my shock mounts...
