Heres those pictures I promised:
















I also had to go out and buy these seals, I didnt realize there were seals in the back of the inner wheel bearing. I should have known better though since I've taken the front apart probably 5 times.

Wow, you're really packing some trips on that thing.

An "AEV" would have been nice about 5 yrs ago when gas was still around a $1.50 or something. but these days I ain't "expeditioning" anywhere, just too expensive, even as gas has backed off to around $3.60. It's up to the nearest trails and then back home.

I feel your pain Its not really what it is now, but what its becoming. I plan on going across the states/wheeling either this summer or next (no matter the price of gas).

Damn man, those rotors have been on their shelf since 5/07, they should have given you a good discount and a thank you card for buying them!

How much did those hub and rotor assemblys cost you? I'm going to say at least $400 for the pair.

Im very surprised they were'nt more. I dont go cheap eather. The ranger and couger both have new rotors, bearing, and ceramic pads. When I get around to doing the bronco I plan on getting slotted rotors from LMC and ceramic pads.

Its a good thing I got new brakes, my old pads were cutting it close. More pictures to follow but overall Im happy and it was money well spent. No noise coming from the brakes, firmer pedal, better stopping power and yeah... keeps me feeling safe. Part 2 is F350 parts like I already mentioned but thats a couple of paychecks away.




Ooooo Pretty

Little updates on the build...

I won FOTM last month! (thanks for the support!)
Did a big cleanup and mild trail run in the Sierras a couple of weeks ago (and averaged 15MPG the whole trip)
and I have developed a battery problem.

When I came to a stop at the light on 7th and whatever that 280 exit is, the light went off and the gauge went back up to around 12v. I had no lights on, the AC was off; the only accessory on was the radio.

WTF is going on here?

I went ahead and took out the alternator from my buddies 93 F150 project and put it in mine for a temporary solution. It seems to have solved the problem on the ride home (8 miles) and pulled a consistent 13.7v. Im going to order a 160a 3G (direct swap in late models) along with some Mil-spec terminals and the 2g recharge cable from Ryan's (Fireguy50) website. It should be good maintenance as well as a nice upgrade.
