Jeep Stuff Wanted / Re: CJ7 steering column wanted

Thanks Bill.  I'll have to get back to you after I see if mine is repairable or not. I already have all the parts ordered for it but am having an issue with getting the lock tumbler out. I'll also have to do some research to see what the differences are between the 5 and 7 and year.

Hopefully you still have it around once I quit dragging my heels. Thanks

My new to me JKU Rubicon has 150kkms on it and was not feeling the greatest going over EG angled railway crossings. Nothing serious but I did not like it. Bought a Bilstein damper from 4x4Parts last Friday and installed today at U-Wrench - hoist is nice. Truck feels much firmer and totally different now. The OEM piece had 1" of slop either way and would sometimes pump up - it had to go. Recommend the Bilstein to everyone as the ram is way bigger than the stocker

Ya for sure. I’d already figured this out on my own but great to actually have the process documented here... the old memory is still good but getting shorter!  ;)

After some discussion this weekend on the trail here's the how to for Avenza Maps:

Download: Android or iPhone or even Windows 10 (Tablet?)

Once you have downloaded the app you need to have maps in it before you head out (You will download the maps over LTE or Wifi data)

To install the Ghost and McLean georeference maps it works better to have the link already copied:
Ghost Link
McLean Link

Click the plus in the lower right and select "Download or import".

Select "Tap to enter a url..." and paste in the links from above (one at a time)

Hit ok and you've now imported the map.  Once downloaded and processed you can access this map anytime regardless of cellular reception.  You must have Location Service turned on to get the GPS functionality.

You can record your own tracks and use place markers for key points, trailheads, campsites, etc

You can use the "store" to search for old resource maps that are available for free Some are Free and some aren't

The Record tracks option and Placemarker features work great with these maps EG: Specifically Limestone mountain:

Note stay to designated trails if the trail is designated but not on your map that's what I mean by record your trails...

Found some interesting resources from an ice climbing forum

Naming and updated routes:

Their ghost road reports page:

Looks like there was an ice shelf issue but the mild weather took care of it.

I’ve heard that if you spray your inner fender wells and what ever else you feel like with WD-40 before hitting the muddy trail it will allow you to clean it up afterwards for only $14 at the car wash instead of $28…
Of course, you’ll spend the $14 you saved washing off the WD40 afterwards. ;D

I've also heard that if you're grandma's sofa is covered with plastic that means that.....never mind.
