I was just about to call the local dealership and make an appt to get my front lockers looked at, but now I have all this info in one spot. Seems like the universe wants me to look at it myself. The fronts just decided to not work anymore after a year of being fine. My love of hitting every...
I will vote snorkel as well for both the functional and conversational arguments. The snorkel keeps intake temps within ~10*F +/- of ambient temps. My stock intake 80s run higher intake temps. Does it make a real difference? Possibly over a very long timeline the cooler intake temps will help...
I had (am having) a family emergency happen. I'm out for this month.
Crusha, if you are def coming, could you maybe send my parts home with Andy and I can mail you a check. I will try and PM you later as time allows. I should clear that with Andy as well.
The fronts were a bit more effort. I don't think the door panels had ever been removed before, everything was pristine, clips, plastic liner, door card. The hardest part was getting the clips off again. OEM fronts are 5.25", so it takes some modification to fit the 6" speakers. The mount holes...
Just before the new year I took time to install my son's Christmas gift in the white Cruiser. Did some MUD research and decided on these speakers, 6" fronts and 4" rears. Nothing fancy or expensive, just a simple upgrade over the old tired originals.
I had done rears before in the cammo truck...
Please a million times ... have them turn on the light at the corner of Raleigh Dr and Haines Rd. The construction has been killing me for ~3-4 years now and no end in sight ... ever. The lights have been hung for 2 years now and they say they won't turn them on until the sidewalks are complete...
The very limited pics I took yesterday. These were all after lunch break as I was charging my phone, chatting with Gary and dealing with some work drama during the morning.
Vince and JZelnick
Tight trails with some elevation changes
What a view
Following Andy and TunaKing up the trail...
Slightly (way more than slightly actually) concerned that the cammo truck is using coolant again. I think the excessive BARS crap all through the system may be the issue and this motor is beyond saving. Oil is very clean and no obvious smoke or heating issues yet, but saw just a hint of...

You are welcome to nag me anytime you would rather ride than drive Vince. I will always appreciate your advice and conversation.
I'm pretty sure I will have a seat as well, just trying to confirm if another local is driving/riding or coming at all.
Thanks @Yellow Jacket .... on sale even more today and they had them in blue. I'm a sucker for blue, Merry Christmas to me.
*Likely will never use these, but my truck will look much more legit to the Jeep crown with them attached near the roof in some manner.
I think I'm good with the 21st, but will have to check work schedules first. It's a very busy time of year for me and the Saturday before Christmas is one of the busiest days of the year with people beginning to travel or having family into town.
Figured I would start the monthly thread to see if anyone is interested in getting out in December?
Open to either Rausch or AOAA. I met another local Cruiser enthusiast this week and am hoping he can come along for his first time on the trails. Might be the last chance to get out before snow...
