    Good guess, but no... Power steering pump for the win. Mine has been going downhill for the last several months and has been brutal to drive. Quite a workout! Hopefully will be going in this weekend.

    I plan to put a battery cutoff switch on when I reinstall it.

    Why do I keep having crazy stories happen to me? So I get home today from running some errands and ran in the house with one load, and then went back into the garage to grab another load, and the winch starts going all on its own. Mind you the Jeep is off. Thankfully it is spooling out, but then...

    So I finally was able to finish up the front end repairs from a trip earlier in the year when we got in the rocks quite a bit. On our way home it was obvious something was wrong as it wouldn't track straight and was unstable. First I found that one of the newer Teraflex ball joints had become...

    In the middle of a couple of projects. First up Genesis dual battery kit. While it ended up well, the install was pretty intensive. You basically have to take apart the entire left side of the engine compartment in order to get the old battery tray out and the new one in. And everything is a...

    Beautiful, Argentina is one of my favorite countries that you have visited so far. Look forward to seeing more.

    All done, so far so good. And here are the finished two outlets I added to the dash: Cockpit almost complete.

    Bad news, the large claw comes with a 3" ball: Well that's not going to work. After calling RAM I was able to order a replacement 1" ball. $7, nice! Shipping $20 😒. Got the new ball in today:

    Continued working on the tablet mounting system. Started to get parts in. Decided to try the "large claw" from RAM to try and mount it directly to the grab handle. Good news, it fits! Next, I got the X Grip for 8" tablets and a medium arm:

    Not a bad lineup at the doctor's office this morning.

    Quick update on the front end repairs. I followed Teraflex's directions (or so I thought) to adjust the pre-load on the passenger side lower ball joint with the supplied tool, but I wasn't able to get it tight enough (or so I thought) and didn't want to damage the ball joint. So I called...

    One of the reasons I wanted to add the second outlet was for my next project: 8" Samsung Tab A to run Gaia GPS in the Jeep. We are long term Gaia users but have been running it on my phone so far. Time to upsize a little. The Tab A doesn't have GPS so it will be connected to our Inreach...

    Been working on a new project. I have been wanting to add a fuse block to the front of the interior to power the electronics and my hand finally got forced when my power plug stopped working in the dash. I bought two new Blue Sea Dual USB fast chargers. I ran that to a Blue Sea fuse block...
