do you ever get the feeling, the more work you do, the bigger the list gets?

Yup and the less I get to wheel it. I actually took the MK out the other day for the first time in a long time because I've been dying to hit the trails.

Speaking of more to do. If I put bump stops in do I need to Toad in longer shocks to make up for the loss of flex.

That is a good question, Depends on how much drop your current shocks allow for now. My shocks are long enough with my 3.5" of drop that I am limited by my control arms before my shocks... I think. I need to re test myself.

Gotcha gotta take a look at it then.

So went to go blead the brake and replace the ujoint straps nothing went my way.

The straps dont line up with the yoke and the yoke is beat so i'm just gonna replace the yoke i guess.


Every new fitting and connection for the brakes is leaking. Found out the calipers where leaking because I did'nt put the back washer on but... the brake line I had to replace because it broke is leaking also and its being a pain in the ass to get tight.

Alrighty. So still having problems with the brake line. Gonna go to the parts store with a female end and play around with fittings to find out whats up.

But in the mean time I'm replacing ball joints on both sides. Did the drivers side then found that the tie rod ends where bad so bought a RE Chromelly Tie Rod. I'm sure I'll find the ends on the passenger side are bad too when I get to it. They dont look to pretty.

Does anybody know how to get ahold of Chris? I ordered a winch from his webpage (gardenstate4x4.com) about three weeks ago. I have not received the winch or any notifications from Chris. He immediately charged my credit card the $450. I have emailed him three times and sent him one Facebook message, but he has not responded. I really don't want to think this guy is ripping me off, but it's starting to look that way. Any help getting ahold of him would be appreciated.

It's been over three weeks, still no winch. I have emailed Chris three times, Facebook messaged him twice, and posted here.....no reply from Chris. He has my $450 dollars and obviously does not plan on sending me the winch.

Be warned! Chris Lasky, Chrispl57, and his store gardenstate4x4 can not be trusted, do not do business with him.

I contacted my bank and it looks like I will most likely get my money back, just don't want to see anybody else have to go through this.
