    Transfer Case Woes

    So the transfer case wouldn't shift in or out of drive the other day. Climbed unter and saw that the cable was just loose where it is supposed to connect to the lever on the transfer case. Bushing was completely MIA. I zip-tied it on and ordered some bushings. Coincidentally the rattle that I've had while accelerating the past year is now gone. I guess the bushing has been missing a while and I've just been lucky that the cable stayed looped on

    Here's the temp fix until I get the bushing in:

    I heard the rattle again last night. Not as bad as before though, not as sure it is the same issue anymore...

    I'm wondering if that's the rattle I hear on occasion, seems to come and go though. I might have to crawl underneath and check that spot out, if it ever quits raining that is....

    Put the new bushing in today. The rattle was intermittent, but hopefully now it will be non-existent.:thumbup:

    Stabilizer (damper)

    Put a new Bilstein steering stabilizer in yesterday. I know it's not going to make much of a difference, but the old one was all blown out and wasn't doing anything anyway. I'll rest easy for the road trip through the Gread Smoky Mountains in October knowing it's down there.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
