Headed out to Moab for the annual guys trip with a few friends from high school. A lot of snow this year that added a layer of fun to the trails. Big thank to @Nay for being the tour guide. After that I headed from Moab to Jackson Hole. Big thanks to @Box Rocket for some recommended camping options along the way up from Moab and @NateMob for hooking me up with a 5 star place to stay.

I see green springs up front. Which ones and what’s in the rear. It sits good.

Finished removing the lpsv brake lines and hardware. Removed the abs harness from front and rear axles. Changed brake pads front and rear. I bought napa eclipse calipers to change out front and rear but the rears had cast material in the threads so back to napa they went - some people have had good luck with them & I was not one of those people. I still need to change the soft brake lines front and rear but that will be another week. Next project is changing the dash illumination.

A little before and after of what I got done today - had been putting it off for a while but really glad I got it done. I had hoped my D and P lights would come back with new bulbs but that was not the case (I did try many different bulbs and rotating them - if you have any ideas why they wouldn’t work let me know).

Question for those that swapped their dash lights for leds: What did you do to prevent the gas light from (Previous incandescent bulb worked fine but the new led is powering on while still full).

I just left the incandescent bulb in for the gas light and all warning lights. Only did LED for gauges, transmission indicators and turn signals.

spent 4 days exploring Big Bend - super neat territory but it's a haul !! 9 hours back last night....... have to say the BD and Rigid light setup was worth it's weight in Quicksilver..... missed two deer that I likely would've clipped if I hadn't had all the lights on.... lot's of great roads to explore -but learned that the wife's tolerance is a bit less then that of the dogs for off camber hillclimbs and bouncy roads... only one of them barfed and luckily it was in the back and it got my goretex jacket....
