Swapped out a damaged driveshaft after running Holy Cross yesterday. Slipped off of a boulder and it was in the wrong spot. Temporarily running the old Oem spare until it’s sorted out. Runs great after getting rid of the dented one.

Who’s ball joint? Did you have one fail?
Ball joints are from Synergy. From what I've read OEM ball joints are steel ball with plastic/nylon cup that wears faster with larger tires. My JTRD has nearly 50k miles on it and I didn't want to give the OEM ball joints the opportunity to fail.

New bumpers!

Rough Country tubular front (today) and rear (last week).

Still need to wire up the front lights. Going to try to reuse my Diode Dynamics fogs up front utilizing the OEM harness. Center light will be hooked up to Aux switches.

The rear Rough Country lights are already wired to Aux switches. Plan to swap out to Diode Dynamics if the mounting pattern is the same.

Not sure if a winch is in the cards, which is why I like the fact that there isn’t a giant gaping hole in the top of the bumper.

Those look nice. I've been eyeing both of those for when I switch to steel bumpers.

Preventative is always best in my opinion as well.

That will make a nice piece of shop art on the wall.

"Shop Art".........I'll have to remember that next time my neighbor comes over & tells me what a disaster area my garage is.
He obviously just doesn't appreciate "Art".;)

Did you try to buff it out?

Actually I’m having it rebuilt. Dropped it off at a driveline shop today. They’re replacing the rear tube and 1350 joint, and rebalancing. It’ll cost a fraction of a full replacement, and I’ll have it back this week more than likely.

I really like that flag decal on the rear window slider. Can you tell us where you got that? Thanks
