Welcome! I'll make sure Jarret (site architect/designer) sees your comments! Thanks for the feedback.

Also, post up some pics of your JKU!

I would Ryan, but no way to upload pics? Way too complicated for me Wink

Plus just a stock JK, nothing really worth posting.

No shame in a stock JKU!
KB and Gepetto in the house!!! 284367_10100177238085306_5503106_48198182_5984244_n

Hell, I had to lift my YJ 3" and up my tire size by 4" before I got to where our JKU sits *stock*. Damn capable vehicles!

(You can upload pictures btw, using the KB and Gepetto in the house!!! Picture_save icon, or link to another one on the web using the KB and Gepetto in the house!!! Picture icon.) I don't think you need a certain number of posts or anything, but I can't remember.

Glad to have you on board and let us know if you want any help with those flares when it comes time! Many hands make light work!

I am jealous of your wife's Islander. I think I have passed it randomly on 128!

There really should be a 'Jeep Only' lane. This was as close as it ever came. 84 in CT during a 'dusting'.

I've always wanted to make a mock advertisement with a "Jeep-only Lane" that's the HOV lane just filled with dirt and boulders, ha ha.

Very likely you've seen the Islander, btw. It is the very definition of a daily driver, as my wife drives all over the greater Boston area for work.

Glad to see some pictures!

Glad you made it out yesterday, it will be fun to get that JKU out on the trails next month.

Any updates on the O2 sensor situation?

What up my fellow jeepers!
Havent gotten to the o2 sensors yet because had to deal with an wobble issue. Couldnt figure out what was going on and ended up replacing all the tires and realigning. So far so good now, but still left front camber is off slightly. Guy is ordering the sensors and hope to replace in the next week or so.

Whens the next run?

Welcome. I wouldn't worry about the camber all that much as it is non adjustable. If it is way off then you may want to think about adjustable ball joints or another solution.

No. Please don't consider this. They are NOT a viable option.

Agreed that would be the last thing I would do. Camber shouldn't be an issue on a solid axle. If it is, something is probably bent.

Sorry to hear about the wobble, but glad you got it figured out.

If camber is a little off, but still within spec you should be fine as long as everything feels ok.

There should be a run coming early next month, details to come. Someone else posted here about the NEA poker run, which should be coming up soon as well.
