    I think Shane owns the entire Milwaukee catalog of tools. He's a pretty good rolling advertisement for them when he loads out his truck full of red Milwaukee cases and tools.

    I do almost collect them. Lots of Husky and a few Ryobi too when I want to save a few bucks but overall with the exception of their fairly weak electric ratchet I have been very happy with every Milwaukee tool I have purchased which is more than I can say for other brands.

    Finished up the rear suspension tonight, now I just need to sort out the rear bumper so I can take it for a test drive. I don't want to pull it out of the garage until I do that as last time I did I was working on a wet floor the next day and had snow melting on me while I was wrenching.

    Pulled the old cone style rear bump stop out and put in something that should be a little less abrupt when I bottom out.



    Then installed new spring and shock



    Went ahead and put a skid plate on the shock while I was at it as I'm not opposed to dragging parts if it gets me over the line I want.

    Finished up the rear bumper install with the exception of parking sensors and license plate lights. Then realized after the second time I passed a cop that I also forgot to put my plate on.

    The ride is day and night better than it was before. Haven't finished playing with the suspension but a quick test on a bunch of potholes and washboard showed turning the knobs made the difference I hoped for so I have some room to find settings for different conditions.

    Made some small progress today. I checked the three lines for the diffs and two held air, one did not. After clamping off the leaking line (I didn't chase down the actual leak location yet) I went for a quick spin and found the front locker now works and the surging when using engine braking downhill has gone away.

    I appreciate the offer, I'll try to chase the vacuum leak down myself but that is something that I'll probably end up needing an assist with.

    I'll have wheel adapters later this week to put my Rover wheels on it, that will be enough to get me trail ready even if I can't handle all of the same trails I could in my Disco yet, should be enough for most of what we do.

    They came with the shocks. It sure what is different about them actually. Pretty much had to be softer than the AMG stops though. I donít bottom much traditionally it if it becomes an issue Iíll put some hydraulic stops on.

    Found 4 18Ē wheels on Craigslist for $300. I wish there were a 5th but hard to argue with the price for Merc wheels.



    Then did my favorite trivial mod, added an Anderson plug.

    How about doing a junk yard online search - you need only one of'm - shouldn't be too costly to ship it.

    I've made this section a couple of times in my Disco, failed it a couple of times too. Even when I made it there was much struggle and scraping. The G walked right up it so that was fun.

    Tires look great, what a difference. I think they look squatty stock, that looks just right. Am I seeing it correctly, the exhaust is infront of the rear tires?
