    Wow I can't believe you have been this long without your truck. When you get it back check the bracket where the tracbar bolts to the axle. That bracket likes to likes to sheer at the weld to where the tracbar mounts will break right off the axle.

    My truck has 130k and I have been chasing bump steer for awhile till found the crack. I had changed the ball joints, sway bar links and some steering links and still didn't see it. It finally found it doing an oil change and I rolled under the axle on a creeper and had my face almost touching the axle and noticed it. I had a 4" long crack in the bracket and you could barely tell. Luckly I cought mine for it broke all the way off. I'll google and post a pic of what I am talking about.

    Happy to report the truck is back home now. :thumbsup:

    I lost the Superwinch hubs I had just bought before the accident. But they replaced them with a brand new set of Warn ' s :D

    Truck drives nice smooth.

    Just received some new switches in the mail from otrattw. I'll be installing them and doing a write up soon. These are a test run for what I will be installing in JP in the future.

    Not yet, still shopping. ;) I'm just planning ahead. Probably in the next 3 to 6 weeks.

    The mounts work like a receiver hitch, and have a hitch pin so the ends slide out and store away when not in use.
