After Holcomb creek Moab is easy doings. Glad you got out there as it amaxing wheeling with sandpaper traction. I'd love to put together a SCCX Moab run if there is interest.

The boulders on Holcomb still give me anxiety. Lol I talked to Terry and Dani about the Holcomb run when we were in Moab. As for a trip out to there, I'll bet you could get some people to join. Heck, depending on when it is, I'd come down for it.

Holcomb was some serious Bravo Sierra with the mud and heat. Maybe 2020 would be a good year for a SCCX Moab trip.

I'm going to swap to Titan outer tie rods, with Titan inner tie rods, so I just ordered Hitachi Titan inners/outers. I'm currently running PRG heimed outers and I'm getting a pop just left or right of center when I turn the wheel. I also was getting really bad popping when turning with aired down tires while in Moab. Hopefully, it's just the inners going bad and I caught it before the rack is toast. FYI, I'm just under 59K miles on the truck.  I read through several posts on FB talking about how heims can kill the the rack pretty quickly, with people like Bill and Zach attesting to the carnage heims can create, I think it's time to get rid of mine before the rack goes.

Nothing much has happened on the X in a while,though I do have parts on order to install the Audi R8 coil packs. However, I did head back north in July.

Your truck goes perfect with the color of the Dakota sky and sign.
Glad to hear that all is well.

I felt like the heimed end was putting undue stress on the steering rack. I started reading around a little and a lot of people recommend against the heimed tie rods.
