The build of my flag ship Black Pearl

I’ve been super hit or miss getting on here lately with work and family things, but I did manage to get the jeep put back together. When I pulled it apart I did find cracking in the edges of the clutch plate ,the throw out bearing was bad and a little blueing on the pressure plate,. I’m trying to figure out why this thing is going through those bearings. Anyways it’s together. Drives nice, no more ticking or vibrations.

Had a great trip out in the calico mountain range. Great trail running and light wheeling with a bunch of mines to explore.
Down side is I’m pulling my hair out with this clutch noise. Less the 1500 miles with the start of the same sound.

Went out for a bit yesterday and did a little trail running. Nice day of hanging out and relaxing.
After airing up. Got on the freeway and all of a sudden it sounded like something was slapping the bottom of the jeep. Pulled over and found the clip that holds the transfer case shift cable, had fallen out. So a few zip ties and a couple burns was back on the road.

Nice! How are you liking the coilovers? Noticeable difference on the trail?

Man! I’ve been inactive and boring the last few months. I’ve only been wheeling twice since hammers last year. Doing some mods to the off road trailer before hammers this year. Other than that the ending of the year wasn’t too bad. Done a bunch of fishing, mountain biking and got in to racing ultra 4 RCs (seeing how I’ll likely never afford the real thing). Looking forward to may of this year, as I’ll be able to stop going to a 9-5 every day and spend time doing things that bring more enjoyment!!
Hope everyone is doing great and happy new years!!

Got some new rubber for the pretend Jeep. Trying out the Nitto nomad grapplers. Definitely digging the look of them. Gonna give them some good testing soon. Once I’m back from hammers, we’re going to Yosemite three weekends in a row for fire falls.

Got back from hammers last night. What a good time this year. Jeep rolled 70000 just before I got home. It was awesome seeing Mel hit the finish line, in race of kings.
