    Sent mine to the dealer.....stupid liittle light is on, the yellow squiggly tire tracks (ESP/Brake thingy)

    Took a month to get it in, dealer I bought from is a Chev, had to go to a Dodge/Jeep dealer.

    But they gave me a 2018 Chev Equinox as a loaner.....remote start and heated seats are sweet in MN this time of year

    I know on the Ram trucks, that light often indicates a front unit bearing going out, I'll have to read the paperwork and see.

    Been a while since I posted, but I still have the old girl. I finally retired from Active Duty this past April...hung it up after 27 years. It was fun. Now, I'm outside of D.C. in VA working for the government...beard is looking good. Civilian life is nice! LOL

    As I mentioned, still got the old girl. I've done some things here and there, but recently I just had long tube headers and a new RIPP exhaust system installed in preparation for the RIPP Supercharger. Can't wait.

    My radiator took a dump about a month ago, so I had to replace that.

    Went to a Bestop Trektop NX a few months ago also...not sure if I was going to like that fastback look, but I'm diggin'it.

    Oh, replaced my shocks last year with Old Man Emu, but I think I'm gonna throw on some Fox shocks. Haven't been that happy with the OMEs.

    That's about it for now.

    Congrats on the "retirement"... Such as it is.
    I'd suggest either look into Bilstein shocks or the new Falcon series from teraflex.

    I've already tried Bilstein...weren't that impressed with them. I've never tried Falcon though.

    Interesting... I've tried many brands and have been extremely happy with the Bilsteins on the waggy.
    As to the falcon line... It's my understanding that teraflex actually worked with Fox to help create the falcon line.

    I had Bilstien resivoir shocks on the TJ, and loved them.

    I ordered through Frank Z on here, and he ordered the valving I wanted, taking into account the ARB bumper/winch and other items of weight.

    That said, I need front shocks for the JKU, time to do some searching.

    Doesthtec (spelling?) have had good reviews from some of the guys I wheel with, I know IROR carries them.


    On another note, I just ordered some grab bars for the JKU, front and rears.....$45 on Amazon- cheapest I found at the Q-tec were $100+ for just the front!
