Did the front and rear u-joints this weekend the old school way (hammer & block). I kept hearing this clicking sound when at low speeds in the neighborhood and when exiting the freeway. I checked the front drive shaft and both of the OEM spicer u-joints were toast.

Got my 2 meter Ham installed.  Had been using a handheld when I needed it but now I have the mobile base installed.  Took me forever to tune due to a defective fire ring from firestik.  Usually there stuff is good, needless to say I wasn't impressed and rather than go and argue with them I just repaired the connector myself.  Words of wisdom, always check your radio's SWR, if you don't you may have major issues and not even know it.  With Ham's 65watts the defective ground was enough to cause windshield wipers and lights to turn on, but with a CB you'd probably never know.     Also, on a side note, it turns out those little 12v to usb chargers create a tun of interference, I noticed it on the ham.  After doing more research I think it's enough to degrade your FM radio reception, or cause CB issues.

This looks interesting. Be sure to post on your Garage Thread. I'd like to see how this turns out for you.

I have been wanting to go HAM for a while now. The last 4x4 club I was in made a big push for it, and it was awesome. The clarity and range makes communication much easier with larger groups especially when you split up. I was most impressed when my buddy made a phone call to his wife from the top of Mt. Lemon using his radio. Getting a HAM license is high on my to-do list.

I still need to learn how to access the radio to dial option, and bear in mind anyone on the net can hear your call.  That said, yes it makes communication so much easier.  With the repeater network and coverage in AZ, especially when running multiple groups, it would make life a bit easier.  CB coverage is a couple of miles at best, with Ham, if you were stuck on crown king and I was heading up to help you, I could talk to you the whole time. 

Also, it's Firestik's 5/8 wave antenna, its about 4ft.

Where did you mount your compressor for the air ride lift?
