Re: Doug 97TJ got a write-up
Well guys i dont want to overly critical of anyone, but if your equiptment isnt working propperly and you know it going into a big climb. That is where the problem lies. regaurdless of what brand or type of equiptment or gear you are running, you as the driver have to know when and where your gear is up to the task. Had I read that due to lack of locker in the front caused by an ARB failure,that he was unable to have a productive day on the trail, then that would be one mans testimonial about the inadequacies of that ARB in that particular axle. But when I read that I wasnt getting good traction, and my gear wasnt working proppely, but I tried it anyway, and screwed up, that is one mans testimonial to his decision making, and sounds like just another driver blaming equiptment for an ill fated driver choice. Uhh it wouldnt be the first time gear was blamed for driver error. It sure doesnt sound like a front locker caused rollover, if you read the article and remove your own bias about wanting to blame an ARB. I have seen enough ARB's installed propperly in good axle, in my lifetime to know that they are superb locker with a great reputation.
Wow, you can get a nice tan on your arms, from welding with no shirt on.
