So spent the morning working on the air system for the Jeep and have come up with the following questions:

1. I'm running front and rear ARB lockers. When I engage the compressor it turns on and builds up the pressure. Once I engage the rear locker I hear the compressor turn on again and then shuts off. It continues to cycle periodically though. Is that normal?
2. I'm still troubleshooting my front locker. It has an air leak somewhere. I've removed the solenoid from the manifold and re-taped every fitting from the manifold to the axle. It's still leaking. When I engage the front locker you can hear a high pitched whining sound coming from the front solenoid.

Two tings...Once the pressure is built, it should not need any additional once the locker is engaged so you have a leak somewhere.  Also, you should not have your locker on for a period of time that it needs to rebuild pressure (turn on if needed on an obstacle, turn off once through it).  Could be a pinhole leak in the line, get stainless steel lines if you don't have them already. 

These are stainless lines. Fresh install. Never seen trail use.

I took the Jeep in for an alignment today. Much needed after that swap. Lol.

You might want to adjust your control arms, that caster is way off. You should be able to get it close enough just using an angle finder app on your phone.

Control arms are stock with the AEV geo brackets. The lift is an AEV 2.5.

Oh...I've never used the geo brackets but I believe there are other holes you can use to adjust. Kind of surprised its that far off with the brackets.

The brackets should have a few holes in them for adjustability.  Castor should be in the 4-4.5 range but it varies.

Installed the new stabilizer. So far its working nicely. I had the alignment done at a dealership in Frederick and they left all the nuts loose. Everything was banging around. I got that squared away but the steering wheel is still off. Opting for a second alignment at an independent shop in Martinsburg this week.

Had the Jeep re-aligned and got my castor dialed in. That shop seemed to have a clue so I'm happy. I took it to the shop who did my re-gear for them to check the gears; while they were doing that I had them swap the rear diff cover out. Air leaks in the air delivery system have been resolved as well. She's riding real nice right now.

Jeepmas is here! My front and rear Crusader mid-width bumpers showed up today. I wasn't expecting them until next week, but they got here today.



Old bumper removed:


I needed some professional help with the vaccuum pump relocation so I enlisted my 10yr old.


Frame horns cut and paint touched up:


Finished install (for now):

Before the stock bumper came off I was at 20.25" of clearance from the ground to the crash bar. After the new JCR bumper went on I'm at 19.75" of clearance. May need a leveling kit when I put the winch in (when I get one). I'm running the AEV 2.5" lift right now.
