I just got back from Uwharrie... Met up with youngins at the camp site for a while then peeled out. I ran around falls dam down dutch john and out slab pile to wolfs den to the camp site.

The 285s make the berms go away... no more bumping the gas tank over the berms. My season pass is number 1100 this year. Im slacking, Im normally sub 100 boo.

Toby however is 0186

The youngins said you stopped by. Nick and I were on Dickey Bell in the dark. A unique experience for sure.

My season pass number is 11. I will be shooting for single digits next year!

Oh yeah, I had a blast last night and today. Great group of young people. Makes me feel a little better about our youth. Well, not Casey's fat friend with the jeep. He was weird and had bad taste in music. Very Happy

And odd sleeping arrangements..... Shocked

Had lots of fun riding the trails in the dark. Gotta try that again sometime. Best part though was the shower when I got home!

Im pretty sure Casey's the only one who broke something. He broke both his back bilsteins off and Chad fixed his locker for him at the campsite.

Both rear socks died? Casey if you cab snap some pictures of your rest suspension set up I will help you diagnosed the problem.

Well the resovoir blew off one, and the bolt snapped off the over one. I think he's putting a limiting strap in it soon to limit the down travel.

The stud snapped off the other one, and the 5150's have a shitty adapter so they will spin, and when the suspension cycles it will tear the resi off if it is in the wrong place.

The problem I am having is too much downtravel, and I haven't installed my adjustable pan hard yet.

Once I make up some limiting straps and put in the panhard the rear end should be good to go

Just remember down travel may seem cool but a balanced suspension will work better than an unbalanced suspension because an unloaded spring puts little to no force on the ground which means you Wolff be better of with less travel and more balance.

I have something broken, but no clue as to what. Didn't happen this weekend, but it became more pronounced. Skid removal, deep cleaning, and I will be taking it to the dealership.

yeah the clicking noise. Its not really when turning. We pretty much established its coming from the rear. Its also not all the time. I will test it more this coming week and clean up the FJ. I am unemployed on June 14th, so I will schedule a visit with the service department then. I have had the skids on for about a year now and it will be good excuse to take them off inspect them and all the components they cover up.

The rear clicking is normal on toy rear axles. My first gen does that and the 4runner does it to. Im pretty sure it has something to do with the brains on semi floating axles having a little bit of slop in the bearing.
