    • Is everyone safe? I have folks staying with me now as they were evacuated. We are ok.
    • I was using the JK to winch out stumps last weekend and I noticed that the brake pedal was soft and the winch was pulling me into the stump. I was hard on the brakes, at idle, and the brakes were slipping - the Jeep was inching / rolling towards the stump. I added some throttle to get the RPM up to give the winch more power and I noticed that the brakes also locked the wheels solid and I was then being dragged towards the stump with wheels locked and tearing the grass up. This was repeatable. At idle the brakes couldn't provide enough clamping force to prevent the wheels from being turned when the winch was pulling me toward the stump. Increase RPMs and the wheels would lock solid and I would be dragged, with wheels not turning towards the stump. I was thinking bad booster, but that should make the pedal firm. Bad master cylinder?
    • Also try posting on the Backcountry page on Fb, this page doesn’t get much traffic anymore.  Good luck! 👍
    • Hi looking for suggestions on where to bring a 2019 Mercedes Sprinter to install a lift I have here in the HRM (or close and I will travel). I have done the suspension aspect of it myself as the job is not that hard but I do not have the tools/ability to do they rest of it (the body lift). I cant track down a good place to bring it, Ive tried APJ and they are too busy, and Ive called a few places that dont seem very comfortable. The instructions are very detailed and should be a job that can be done with the right gear. Thanks
