Philo - how is it possible to break a pitman arm via over torquing?? Ryan I seriously doubt you bent the pitman arm, short of a wreck.

It didn't look bent when I took it off but the tie rod was. I kept it as a spare.

In preparation for fall and winter wheeling I had the input shaft seal on the transfer case replaced because the transmission was leaking into the transfer case, must be all those low range wide open throttle pulls at the drag strip haha. Suck feel.com care package just came in with all new seals and rebuild kit that should be happening either this month or next. I'm curious to see just what kind of goo is in the shocks at this point it's been five years since they've been serviced.

I would switch to .012 shims. They'll work a lot better than .12's. Haha!

So I finally had my ScanGauge2 updated with the latest software and now it has the ability to give me coolant and Trans temps! So stoked to finally have a live realtime monitor for those. My Mastercraft XD'S came in also and I'll have them mounted for KOH.
