    will do, Josh! we're gonna ride Brimstone Friday and North Cumberland Saturday. They're calling for rain both days, but temps in the 70's. Shouldn't be much dust, LOL

    This week I added an amp to my stereo, so now i can hear it. I mounted and wired my rigid duallys on the A pillars and I pulled the hood off to clean up all of my wiring. I had wires running all over the place and they just needed some straightening up

    how did you mount them, Jack?
    I'm gonna get two cheap china cube lights and put them somewhere low
    the light on top is useless in dust and fog

    I mounted them as low on the A pillar as possible, below the bolts for the top of the cage, using mounts like these

    Finally found a place that could take the U-joint and knuckle off the Rack-Zilla steering shaft and install it on my power steering shaft that connects to the Zilla rack & pinion spline. I stripped the factor knuckle from the ps shaft pretty much out went in Moab this spring, the splines were slightly different between the two but I didn't notice that and had rode a year without problems. I was down to removing the Zilla steering and going back to factory or loosing the power steering unit and using the Zilla steering shaft; and I wasn't interested in either of those options. They gave me a 50% chance and I gave them the thumbs up. When I picked it up they said it was on the house, that was very cool of them. The u-joints are pressed in and then ear crimped into place on the knuckle/steering shafts, said they were pretty much throw away units if they ever go out.

    That sucks that they didn't quite match up, but at least you got it figured out!

    with any luck, I'll be doing some clutch work to the Wolverine this weekend......

    Yep, I have a pretty penny in the rack and pinion and power steering unit so I was a happy-ass camper. Hear the new clutch is sweet! Rode with a guy out in Moab with the JBS clutch in his Wolvy and it got it but I ran up on him like a fly on chit, lol.....

    Today I tore my wolverine to pieces. Installed a fancy, new switch panel, replaced the air filter with a UNI and started installing the clutch pieces. I would have finished the clutch but I made a rookie mistake and screwed up the gasket for the wet clutch. Then i washed all of the pieces that I had to remove to do the clutch work. I won't have the new gasket until Wednesday, so I'll finish up Wednesday night. KIMG0770.JPG KIMG0769.JPG KIMG0747.JPG

    Ouch! So you have to take it that far apart to get to the clutch adequately? Looks a chore!!

    Yep. The belt intake and exhaust are bolted on from under the bed, so it has to come off.
    It looks worse than it really is, I had all of that off plus all of the clutch pieces in under an hour

    Added (2) more of the Cree LED Lights from Amazon $16.00 for the pair. These two went on the top of the front brush guard in the mounts provided. Thinking about replacing the (2) on the front Pillar posts above the 1/2 windshield with the 24" combo flood/spot across the top front under the factory roof at $32.00 on Amazon. Also mounted the 2-way radio in the roof on a couple of fabricated EMT Conduit braces and BNC type antenna on rear horizontal Roll brace. Have purchased the 5000lbs Badlands winch from Harbor Freight, but haven't got is bolted on yet. I have enjoyed the rear factory bumper the couple of times when I backed into the trees (with no damage to the plastics). AND the Factory LE wheels that were located just 35 miles from home.

    Jack, I know the feeling about the wires everywhere. I absolutely hate it. SO, after a short EBAY search, I ordered (3) different sizes of the plastic wire wrap molding.

    IMG_1597.JPG and the kind with the slit to hide the wires much better.

    Well got the recall stuff done on my rzr. New voltage regulator, vent tube, exhaust shield. Also figuring out next mds for blackbird. Looking at radio, snorkels, and more aggressive tires since its been in mud more, and i love the power in the mud lol. But im trying decide on new spring for the shocks possibly as i found out my rzr lost major clearance. Its down to around 9" ground clearance. Also added new lawn mower to help with more tail time hopefully lol took only 2.8 hrs to mow the field of grass this time where took like 7-8 hrs with old one. 20160604_185313.jpg
