Got the new trackbar bolts in the mail. Should I use loctite even though I have nylock nuts?

Personally, I'd use a flange nut.  Nylocks have less steel contact (because they have the insert) with the bolt so they offer less griping power most of the time.  Locktite would not really be necessary, but could be used on a flanged bolt.

I've been a little busy...

A couple weekends ago I upgraded to a Durango Power Steering box.  Last weekend I installed Poison Spyder hood louvers.  This weekend LED headlights and a dual coolant switch in prep for a taurus fan.



What does the taurus fan do?

I switched from a clutched mechanical dan to the taurus electrical fan a couple of years ago. What it did for me was give me room. My mechanical fan was too close to the radiator and bounced into it one day and sprang a coolant leak. I gained about 2 inches more room bu installing the twin fan taurus set up.

The last trail ride I went on the coolant temps kept creeping up while we were going slow or sitting still.  The louvers will hopefully help reduce the overall under hood temps a little.  The electric fan will automatically kick into high when the temps rise.  Preventing me from getting worried and turning the heat on in 100 degree weather. 😎

I probably could have just replaced the fan clutch, but for around 50 bucks I was able to purchase everything I need from salvage yards to do the swap.

Added a chuck to my front bumper for on-board air without having to open the hood:



Not a bad mod for $37. No leaks and works great.

Dont forget if you paid VA state income taxes in 2018 you will get an addl refund check in Oct from the state. Mine is around $100.
Still not even with the Feds since I had over $10K State and local taxes and I couldnt deduct them all on my return. Will be in the same mess this year unless Congress changes the law for 2019.
I would rather eat the couple hundred bucks and listen to folks in NY, NJ, MA, CA, and MD scream about the taxes they cant deduct this year.  We see since Congress still needs to pass a continuing funding resolution or a budget for FY 2020. They arent close and House Dems keep grandstanding.  I could use a few days off in Oct especially since my part of DOD is reorganizing starting Oct 1. My senior leadership will have fun doing this.

I pay my personal property taxes to FFX Cty Marxists online the day before its due. Thank God the county doesnt tax herding dogs as property or I would pay more for my dog than I do my Jeep by triple or more.
