  1. Is everyone safe? I have folks staying with me now as they were evacuated. We are ok.
  2. 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?
  3. First time having to get a trailer inspected. Where do we like to take our trailers in HRM? What sort of things should I watch out for / make sure are tip top before I bring it in?
  4. I love the naming scheme - hilarious!
  5. Welcome! What sort of off road rigs are you driving??
  6. 3 out of 4 ain't bad, right? The bolt pattern doesn't fully line up - there is a "kink" in the bolt pattern that is a bit different than what the ARB must be. I could drill the fourth, but I'll see how it goes like this for now.
  7. Also, my M.O.R.E. underhood ARB dual mount arrived. Initial eyeballing thinks the bolt holes will line right up with the Princess Auto compressor. Now to put that workbench to work ...
  8. Tired of working on the floor. Built a ratchet workbench using old wood from my old deck. The red you see is 4x4's from the railing and the red / orange / stained 2x4's you see are actually from the 2x8 joists that I ripped down to size. Workbench is 32" x 96", about 38" tall (I'm 6'3") and is on locking castors so I can move it around the garage. I'll put a shelf on the bottom eventually, maybe some drawers or something ... but wasn't a priority for the initial build.
  9. Looks good! I love these things. Is it the 1st generation that does not have the curved back glass?
  10. Arrived! Now I need to find time to install.
  11. Brake lines are in Dartmouth Comeon Fedex!
  12. WOW! They didn't even try to hide it, eh? Specs seem similar 6.1 CFM, 100% duty cycle ... but I'll reserve judgement until I get it installed and use it for a bit to see how durable it is.
  13. Some more new junk on the way and acquired. Decided to order some extended braided steel brake lines. The lines that were done with the lift from the previous owner are just the factory rubber lines "unhooked" from the frame. I thought some extended braided steel would be cleaner and safer. Should be here next week. Next, Princess Auto has an air compressor on sale - it looks suspiciously like the ARB dual (and I'm sure way shitter components / build quality) but for $399 and with the Princess Auto return policy I figured I'd give it a go. And ... to see how close it is to the ARB compresor, I ordered an underhood ARB dual compressor mount. I figure I can modify the mount to fit the PA compressor and if / when the PA compressor fails I can get the ARB and use the mount for the intended purpose. No ETA on shipping yet. I got the mount from our sponsor extremeterrain.com - they had one open box for $56!
