Default Failed my pre-moab inspection

I've been addressing the bad-er-"disconcerting" noises in my front end.
The clunking was loose leaf spring bolts. Tighten, re-crappy weld the nuts on.
The creaking noise is a loose steering box!
My father in law is shocked that the box hasn't ripped out of the frame after all these years of big tires. Well, it has been trying lately. The top bracket is failing at the factory welds. Tearing/cracking the bracket.

I'm going to relocate the box and plate the frame at the same time.
I'll also move my front axle forward another inch or so. not sure I need about 1/2 inch to fit 37's.


I'll probably be mobile by the weekend so I can move furniture again!

I don't think I'll have the ram assist done in time for CM09. no worries. Never had it before anyway.

Matt: No 37's yet, but I like to plan ahead. My 36's are almost worn out.

Jeremy: Maybe this weekend!
