    Love to see some more pics of the sway bar. Ive found several FJ-60 bars for sale...all look different from each other and different from yours.

    I will work on that CJ!

    So, I got the hummer finished up and took it on a snow wheeling trip for my shakedown. I went out with my brother in his JK on 40s and junkyard ton's and then my buddy in his SAS Chev. We went up to MET and since it was our first time we did go further then we were supposed to. Sorry! We didn't know or see any signs. It wont happen again.

    Driving to the trail.



    Snow wheeling





    I am new to snow wheeling so it was fun and learning the ropes added for more fun.





    After that I went over some small things and took off to so cal for the holidays. Drove it 350 miles down south and all was well. I did notice at some point that my rear Eaton wheel bearing got loose! I was fearful it chewed up the spindle but luckily it didn't. I pulled it apart, replaced the bearings, center punched and loc tited the bearing surface and well over 1k miles later its still happy.

    Here she is back in her old home town.



    I ran some errands for my mom and ran into someone at target who was checking it out. He saw the UA stickers and is a big UA fan, we had a good 30 min chat. It was super cool!
    After Christmas we hung out for a few days and took off to Sand Hollow on the 29th.





    My buddy flopped on an off shoot line on Nasty Half. I was put in a tough position to get him to winch back over. I was all off camber but I got to where I needed to be and flopped him back over via the winch.



    This kind of shows where I had to go. Up above him and not pictured is where I had to position myself which was way off camber.





    My buddy in his land cruiser







    Sleep wasn't too great, 2:30AM a gnarly wind storm rolled in then snowed.

    The tent felt like it would fly away. Not much stuck around but the wind was terrible!





    On the 31st we wheeled in the snow and due to ice, snow and sand I had to bump it! The video never does justice but it was an under cut ledge in soft sand with no traction on either end. Only 2 of us made the ledge and my buddy was honking the horn for excitement.



    Later that day I aired up and drove 400+ miles back to so cal. Then on the 1st I drove back up to Sacramento. It was cool to bump and wheel speed an obstacle like that in the morning and drive 400 miles later that day. The anti wrap bar works!!!

    Just over 1,700 miles round trip between nor cal, so cal, sand hollow and driving around town. a few miles from home my motor started sounding like ****! Like a bad rod bearing but it had oil and oil pressure. It is an AFM motor but the AFM is disabled. Time for tear down before KOH :mad3:

    What is your thoughts now on the metalcloak springs? My ford bronco springs are pretty stiff, good for the road with no sway bar.

    06 H3's Squeakin H3 Build

    Probably broke a chunk off from the ring grove up. That happens a lot on boosted motors. The ring gets hot from friction & combustion and tries to expand. Once it closes the gap, it has no more room to grow and POP goes the piston. The loose piece usually bounces around and scars up everything else in that cylinder. Bummer.

    Cletus does it right!...
