    Re: 3/27/21 RAM Offroad Park Shakedowns

    I almost wasn't able to go. The WK wouldn't turn over in the morning. Ended up needing to re-seat the starter solenoid connector. Must have gotten some corrosion.

    The WK did good overall.

    I do...

    This was a fun project to work on. It's nice to have a project car that I can take my time on and not have to worry about getting it all back together to drive to work the next day. I think it turned...

    Re: Andy's WK

    After all that, I had some trouble getting the front end back together. With the differential lowered, the CV axles would contact the strut mount and I couldn't get the upper ball joint bolted to the...

    This part I never planned to do, but glad I did. Dropping the differential.

    1st step, get a welder. Just got a small Harbor Freight mig welder, I don't do much welding so it will serve me well.

    The Goliath skid plate install went pretty smooth. It is bolted to where the original front tow hooks are on the bumper, and at the bottom uses a bracket that bolts to the frame sway bar. I replaced...

    Well, the upper radiator hose wasn't the problem. The inlet connector was cracked and getting worse. Replacement ordered and spent some time to remove the radiator today. Pretty tight in there, but...
