You are also welcome to mine which is identical to Mark's trailer he had.

unfortunately something came up for us and we aren't going to make it.  Damn it.
How about "3 squared"

Yep.  It's been done since Moab.  Well, never done.  Adam's been working on it with upgrades since then but it's out front of UORC.

Dang it.  I almost typed that too but thought "Nah, that's like asking if the computer is plugged in"  ;)

One more thing does come to mind.  If you let it idle with the radiator cap off does it look like it's circulating good?

Also, you might want to burp it.  There may be air trapped in the system that won't let the fluid pass through at idle.

Is it losing coolant at all?

One of the things I wonder, even though the radiator is new as of last year, you have wheeled it and it's possible the radiator fins are plugged.  Did you inspect them with a flashlight to make sure they are clear?

Thank you guys.  That's sort of what I was afraid of.  The shop wants $450 including parts to do both sides.  I can buy the hubs 75 each but I assume it's expensive because of rust.  I am going to do some research and see if I think I can get it apart due to rust.  Thanks

I am told both of my front wheel bearings need to be replaced.  I was curious if anyone has done this and how much there is to it.  I can get Timken bearings from Amazon for $75 each, looks like its all a sealed unit to me.

Anyone think I would have a problem doing it myself in my garage?

SKYJACKER®  warrants to the original retail purchaser that its suspension products, shocks, and steering stabilizers are free from defects in material and workmanship for as long as that purchaser owns the vehicle on which such products were originally installed. Suspensions not used in conjunction with SKYJACKER® shock absorbers may void the warranty. Products installed on a vehicle used in any form of competition or racing are not covered by this warranty, and the warranty shall extend only 1 year on commercial vehicles. Warranty on tie rod ends, u-joints, drag links, and such shall not exceed 1 year. Skyjacker's rebuildable rod ends and coil-over shocks, both being made serviceable in design, are not replaced under this warranty, but rebuild kits are offered for a period of 1 year and can be purchased after 1 year.

I guess that sums that up.  Plus BDS is made in Michigan.

SkyJacker needs to change their name to just "Jacker"
