    Looks like I'll be putting the XJ death wobble on the back burner for a while. Hopefully within a few days I'll be picking up a Tahoe and will retire the XJ from work vehicle back to off-road toy.

    So today I cleaned out my civic and on putting it on the market. Still making payments on it, and it spends most of its time sitting in the driveway now. If anybody in the Houston area wants a civic, let me know.

I had seen a few sliders that had the kick out before the rear tire, that way if you were sliding on anything it'd move you out prior to the rear tire hitting it, seen similar for rear bumpers too.. Seemed like a pretty nice design to me.. Can't remember the exact company I saw it, that made it..
    Yeah most of the companys that make them for the tacoma offer a kickout. And i am going to build mine like that as well, but with rectangular tubing.

    To fix your death wobble, just put on a new steering stabilizer

    Out with the old work vehicle, in with the new. I'm fairly impressed with the condition of the Tahoe. 1999 with only 100k miles. Great condition for sure. Another thanks to msmoorenburg for getting it set up for me to buy.

    Drove 15 miles to the jy to see what I could find, got to the front door and realizedi didn't have my wallet. So I drove home all pissed off. Now I'm buying beer to do yard work.

    Used the bed/tailgate as a dinner table for me, the GF and the little one.. we went to Sonic, since we happened to be in the area of one.. Was actually pretty relaxing, and enjoyable.. even more so to see the faces/reactions of the other people there.. heck even the carhop

    Was out in my backyard by the area we park our jeeps, talking to my brother about his 8.8 swap and out of nowhere a loud hiss starts. I just thought it was the compressor line/valve/connection got a leak since he had it out and full, blasting the axle. But my ears told me otherwise as it was coming from the direction of our flatbed. Walked over to look across because its in the driveway and check to see if anyone was messing with it and didn't see anything so we go around and the darndest thing. The valve stem gave out... just setting in the driveway... with no one near it. I understand this can happen, although I never have seen it myself, I surely would think on the road would be the more likely place to happen. I mean, this truck is driven a lot. Probably moves more than it sets these days, and loaded down heavy some too. Just seems weird of all times for it to go, would be after setting overnight with no extra heat or pressure on it. Not that I'm not grateful it didn't happen on the highway! Anyway, pulled it off, threw it in the jeep, and spent the day at the tire shop. Back to 70psi and rolling!

    You've got somebody looking out for you up there! Would have sucked if it happened going 70mph down the highway!
