    Re: The Campfire.

    We had some friends and family over for dinner. Small gathering compared to other years, only 14 of us total, some years we have had up to 28.

    Those 8 lights only draw 1.5 amps too. I love LEDs.

    Re: Soft Shackles

    After making mine and pulling the knot super tight with my winch, I put thin CA glue on the knot to insure it will not come apart.

    I also added nylon tubing to them to help with abrasion.

    Re: Custom Splice Diamond Recovery Ring - Soft Shackle Pulley

    I bought the Factor 55 FID and have used it to tie several soft shackles as well as make a winch line extension. It's actually very easy.

    Re: Kinetic Recovery Rope

    They work great in snow and mud.

    These bags are great for storage.

    Re: Front upper control arms on 2005 LJ

    Bump stops are to limit travel so your tires don't rub and to prevent any other suspension parts from hitting anything.

    Re: Front upper control arms on 2005 LJ

    Tearing the mounts from the frame or axle can/does happen but it's not too common.

    Just get some penetrating thread locker for the jam nuts.

    I was sitting in the corner waiting to see what was decided. However I am now going to the Glenwood Springs area for the weekend.
  17. Re: Trail run this Saturday? Something up north. Perhaps Miller

    Kelly Flats should be mostly snow free by the weekend.

    Re: Two trips to Penrose

    I definitely know the lines that are easiest for my rig. I have been trying different lines the last few times. There is rumor of a new even harder trail that they are trying to get approval to open.
