    Goose Gear JKU Plate System question

    Hey everyone! After finishing my New Mexico/ Arizona expedition, I am really interested in the Goose Gear plate system for my Jeep so I can mount a fridge slide and possibly do a 60 seat delete to sleep in the Jeep. My question is regarding the subwoofer. I have the Alpine 9 speaker system...

    No kidding! My dad and I had a fantastic time out in the Gila and the whole trip was just awesome. I am considering doing another one of his trips in the monsoon season to see how far I can challenge myself and my equipment with the weather being poor.

    Ordered a set of KC Hilities Gravity Pro 6 Driving lights (Say that 10 times fast). Should be really good light output that is street legal.

    So I just wrapped up the New Mexico Backroads Ghost Divide Expedition and I can say without a doubt it was fantastic. Still going through and editing a ton of photos so I am currently working on a full writeup of the trip like I did for my Big Bend/ Marfa trip in December. Overland Expo West...

    So tires were low today, around 24PSI. I pumped them up to around 27ish PSI and believe it or not I think the ride issue has been solved. I posted on my Austin Jeep facebook group what they run for pressure with 35s and they said 30PSI. I will try 30 out tomorrow but just having them at 28 made...

    So I was worried about this but it seems that I may have a clearance issue with the Steer Smarts Track Bar and my Ultimate Dana 44 diff cover. When the axle articulates from the passenger wheel up, the trackbar is contacting the outer fins of the diff cover. I may get a metal filer and file down...

    So my tires may be out of balance... again. That is really the only thing that is explaining the vibration I'm feeling when driving. This is really frustrating because I had them rebalanced just a month ago. It is really driving me crazy, I know for a fact that the Jeep has driven smoother...

    Got back into Austin today after 200 miles of I-35. So tires had a bit too much air but otherwise than that the Jeep drove fine. I does seem to ride a little rough for some reason, could be the tires. Just need to make a micro adjustment on the turnbuckle to turn the steering wheel to the...

    Good to know. I can do long days I just hoped that it wasn't going to be something like we would get to camp at 10PM kinda deal. Compared to Texas, New Mexico looks like it has killer views, can't wait to head out!

    Awesome! I've been in contact with him pretty regularly to get everything squared away and have everything double checked. I am currently a full time student and that week before the trip ill be moving out and taking finals. I guess the only question I have for you is is the GDE really heavy...

    So with the whole trackbar debacle, I have been feeling really anxious about driving the Jeep because I have had this weird feeling that the whole thing is going to start to death wobble while I'm on the highway and that I'm going to crash the thing. I took it for a bit of a drive today with...

    Pics of both the Yeti and the YETI. With the track bar being this big and the weird positioning of the steering stabilizer I am probably going to lose some flex before things start rubbing. Not a major issue right now because the GDE isn't supposed to be a rock crawling type of trip, more...

    YETI trackbar came in today and was promptly installed. Got to borrow my roommate's impact gun and wow I like it! Made my job time cut in half. The track bar is f****** massive there are no other words to describe it. It's so big, however, that with my 2.5" lift everything is pretty close. The...

    Just be aware that the bracket for the trackbar is pretty much the same area where that new bracket would be welded. I'm sure you'll figure something out but yea the UD44 is kinda weird when it comes to the track bar bracket and the Steering stabilizer mount.

    Oh and one more thing on the Ultimate Dana 44, if you see pictures online with the axle C's being small, those are the old style axles. I have their newer 44 and the C's are full width, not the narrow C's like on the stock 44.
