    Thatís a grade 8 already? Looks like 1/2Ē ? How are you hitting 20,000 lbs of force ?

    I doubt it. If something is off with geometry or whatever itís probably putting the entire weight of the Jeep on one bolt. Iím just not sure why itís happening. I know a few people that havenít had any issues, some that have had a couple and others that have had a lot.

    The worst part is getting that damn nut in there. The rear lowers are the worst to get in too.

    I should note that itís only been an issue on 2012-up JKs. Moby and anyone I know with an older JK has not had this problem.

    What about a F9 bolt? I was told they are stronger then a grade 8.

    The thing about hardware is that if you don't want it to shear or break you usually go softer like a grade 5 that bends. The harder the bolts are, they are usually more brittle.

    Weird. I swear, if this had ever happened to me, I would have made a post about it years ago. The only people I've ever seen this happen to are guys with newer JK's. But then, we never had it happen on Rubicat.

    [QUOTE=nightcrawlerjk;853600]I'm sure we all know that jeeps never stop having problems but that's just part of the fun. Interested in seeing what went wrong this week .

    For starters everyone I turn my windshield wipers off they just start to go faster, in order for them to actually turn off I have to turn my car on and off.

    Let's here what wrong with your guys' rigs.

    My car's radiator overheated. I was going for a road trip. Luckily I have my tools with me and some spare parts.

    Started hearing a strange clicking noise coming from the front end. Doesn't matter if I'm in 2wd or 4wd. Not a consistent noise but today towing a trailer it started getting worse and the front end actually started vibrating but it went away. Almost felt like a tire out of balance. Possible hub assembly issue?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
