Approaching 500 miles of gear break in. Got an appointment for next week for diff oil change and inspection- required for gear warranty. So much better drivability. Can’t wait to off road and tow.

My Centerforce clutch install got pushed back to next week. Got a new Synergy bearing for my sector shaft bracket. The other one filled with mud and debris and is squeaking. Maybe I’ll put that on if weather cooperates (don’t fit in the garage easily).

Picked up my Gladiator today from Keystone 4x4 after the Centerforce Clutch install. Initial impression is - Wow! Gotta break it in and take it easy but I don’t even need to hit the gas to back up. Taking off is so much more positive engagement. Like a different vehicle. Seems more powerful. The pedal effort is definitely more /heavier but the engagement point is so much lower and better. Really pleased. Video impressions, 20degree hill climb test, etc coming soon to my YouTube.

Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller Video posted. Works great!
Well done install video - did you ever post a test drive with a load on the trailer?

I did with 2 tons of stone I picked up for a project but never edited/published the video. I’ve done this dozens of times with 4wheelers on the trailer. I got busy and the video is pretty boring. Basically it works well. Can be a little finicky (might be the truck or trailer too) but works well if everything has a good connection. Easy to use and out of the way (no way I was putting something under the dash to bash my knee on). Thanks for watching and good luck!

Still loving the new Centerforce Clutch. Been too busy prepping for Christmas and chasing white tails to do any new mods or any real off roading.

Planning for cross country camping 🏕 trip to Yellowstone/ Grand Tetons, Mt Rushmore this summer in #JTRSPARTACUS. Working on getting a Softopper and a Cargoglide or Bedslide. Will probably use a ground tent - no rack or RTT. Welcome thoughts, suggestions, cautionary tales.
