I think the boss was talkin' 'bout Cmax up there^^^

Don, P1082 is the fuel vacuum switch (lift pump inop, restriction between injection pump and tank, ice....)
        P128e= low fuel pressure
and P2510 is an issue with the PCM power relay. That code can be caused by low/bad batteries, possibly from her cranking it too long. The first code is the important one.

Yeah, didn't proof read his post very well.

2012+ JK's have all sorts of new fangled e lec tronics on them that get all scrambled up when you mess with them, especially the stability and trac control seem to like to throw the dang things into limp mode with the slightest modifications. do you have an AEV procal module for programming? I know it may be completely unrelated, just spitballing ideas here.

As some of you guessed a few posts and dot comments back I scored a set of Superduty axles. The front is a ball joint Dana 60 from a 2002 and the rear was a 10.5 Sterling boat anchor from a 1999 both 1 tons. I still have them and the plan has always been to use the front 60. The rear though I have been debating for some time, truth be known since before I paid good money for it..... :tongue:

Couple of thoughts on that Sterling, unless you stretch the rear axle 3" at bare minimum rearward it with it's high pinion centerline design will impact the gas tank under compression of the suspension. It has great ground clearance by this design but I'm still stuck with running that darned metric wheel mount bolt pattern. So I spent a good 2-3 hours one evening here late last week researching the gas tank dilemma. By the time I was done I decided I didn't like the Sterling enough to keep it and can probably make a couple hundred selling it for what I have in it. Yes, I could pay $1500 and buy and aftermarket tank from Genright but I didn't like them enough to throw that kind of money at it either. Fuel cells suck for one reason or another as well. With the Sterling getting put up for sale or maybe I'll just donate it to Don he's gunna need a spare anyhow for the rear of Sq D as Cummins and Sterlings don't play well together which I bet he finds out now that it runs.........  :popcorn:

Something to mention, the front superduty unit bearings can be bored out for 35 spline stub shafts and machined for different mount patterns such as 5 on 5 1/2. So after deciding to donate the Sterling I recalled a rear custom jk housing on CL local a couple months ago. So a quick search and a text I discover that brand new housing is still available. It is a currie built JK F9 rear housing with 35 spline shafts, read direct bolt in to my JK. Even can use standard JK brakes and sensors, pretty nice unit. The shafts come dual drilled for the standard 5 on 5 jk pattern and also the 5 on 5 1/2 which would match the front 60 potentially modified units bearings. One of my end goals is to run 38-40" rubber on this jeep and this setup will work out just fine for those parameters. The front 60 measures 68.75 and this F9 housing measures up 66 so close enough and it should track well down the pavement. No gas tank issues and I do not have to stretch the rear if I do not choose to do so. Reality is I probably need to stretch it 1-2" to center the larger rubber in the rear wheel wells. Here are the specs on that axle. Maybe Tate will grace us with his presence and let us know what kinda cool options Randy's has for a center chunk.


And here is the housing and axle shafts in my truck this morning........


Nice change up on the rear there, and super fortunate find on that currie housing.
Smells like a Zip locker or Grizzly to me. Both are RMTS special priced air or automatic, and either are stronger than their "other guy" counter parts, and that's not just marketing fluff. A certain Australian co. has now re-designed their case and changed their warranty to be more competitive.


If you're going to trailer this thing, or at least not daily drive it, (which I assume) I would stick with the Grizzly in the back. just less moving parts. If you have any questions as to durability, Mac Plecker in GA has been running them in his full size monster truck, Ballistic for 7 years now. http://www.extremeteam4x4.com/ He's got the Grizzly in the rear and the Zip up front and has been abusing the snot out of them.

That's the very reason they say to season soups at the end since most of the flavor compounds build so many layers you really don't need much if any when they're all combined. I'm betting that the smoking aspect took care of all of that for you. I can taste it through the computer screen btw.

Looks straight forward enough.

Today we found out there?s another fentanyl laced batch of heroin in north Alabama. 3 overdose calls in less than 24 hours. Two of them occurred while the offender was driving and one of those guys had a stolen pistol in his lap. Fun times.

you've got 3.42 gears, NON limited slip there sir. You could change out to 3.73, not sacrifice too much top end and get a little more oomph out of 4th, but there really is no need to re-gear with that trans/motor/tire combo. unless you want to use it to tow on the regular.

JR, his trans, MUNCIE SM465 6.56 3.58 1.70 1.00. even if he had 3.42's he'd be OK w/ those tires. I'm betting he's got 3.73's or 4.11 though. a look at the RPO codes would tell the tale. Longball, if you have an intact Code sticker in the glovebox, see if you can post up a pic.

Lavender; used for my wife's soap and lotions and essential oils... oh you mean tamagoyaki?! it's a rolled or folded Japanese omelet with dozens of layers. the pan used to make it is curiously similar to the picture of your griddle.  https://www.google.com/search?q=tamagoyaki+pan&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjIjqX7sq_XAhVHyVQKHfI1AEQQ_AUICygC&biw=1440&bih=770#imgrc=pJ0XFtR7SkYstM:&spf=1510158543342

anyone read the dialog? "That's when I called it in on my radio that shots had been fired,? Campos said. ?I was going to say that I was hit, but I got on my cellphone just to clear that radio traffic for ? they can coordinate the rest of the call.? does it seem that he was starting to deviate from his pre-planned responses? almost like he forgot he wasn't supposed to mention the cell phone bit?

it's a plant based sweetener that isn't a preservative like saccharin or splenda. Wife's still on her low carb kick, so I try not to use basic sugars too often and for a dressing with that much intense flavor you never notice a "fake sweet", but you'd notice if I left it out.

I boil them whole in seawater, 5 min per lb. I start the water when I leave shore, and by the time I'm back it's rocking away. I was using a couple tablespoons of old bay too, but I like plain seawater better. I have one of these bayou classics and that thing will have 8 gallons rolling in 15 min or so. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Bayou-Classic-High-Pressure-Propane-Burner/21709841. I usually like to pick them clean and then serve them in bowls with lemon and butter, but most just eat it straight up.

I'd be really interested in the ballistics of the slugs they undoubtedly have overstock on that they pulled from the dirt and asphalt. Angle of impact should be pretty easy to identify here and would give directionality etc. I'm no expert like some of you here, but from what I've learned over the years, ballistics don't lie, which is why it's a science right? caliber, speed, angle, direction, shouldn't all of these things be pretty damming evidence?
