Took the X to discount tire yesterday for a tire rotation, and decided to have them flip the black tire sidewalls out. The white sidewalls have annoyed me ever since I bedlined my wheels.

Helper Springs

I added a couple of helper springs to my OME setup. I kept bottoming out!

Here is what I purchased:



I got them on Amazon:



Install was straight forward. I cut off the excess all thread rod too...

Variable Shackles

Still working on getting the back of the X to stop bouncing off the Timbren bump stops. Some time before I added the Radflo 2.0 Remote Reservoir Shock, I tried adding these, but there wasn't enough travel in the stock shock. After ordering and installing the Radflo's configured for 2" lift, I finally installed the PRG Variable Height Shackles:

Here is what I purchased:





I jacked up the side to free up the springs and after some cussin' and pushing, I got them in place.



Easy as pie and now there is plenty of clearance for the Timbren's.

Rotated the tires and loaded down the X for a couple day trip to Cherokee National Forest. Also got a Vgate iCar Pro OBD reader so I can keep an eye on the rig with OBD Fusion.

I'm jealous man! Even though our trip could have possible ended with us stranded out there because of that cam sensor failure, I still hate we had to abort....

Got to get it inspected tomorrow. Should pass with flying colors considering 90% of the suspension is new, plus the brakes ect.

No problem with deep linking. Oddly, the links work if I use Explorer. I'm directly linking as I have done before. Has something changed?

IMG tags around the direct link.

So we drive two Pathys. One used with about 30k and one new with 43 miles on it. I hand to say that in our hunt for vehicles, so far it's the leader. I'm usually really picky about how my automatic transmissions behave and I didn't notice any of the issues with the CVTs that folks haves mentioned here.

It had a shift programmed in it to make it behave like a standard automatic which I don't know how I feel about. The CVT was much better than Ford's 6 speed in the Exploder, but Ford has never had a great automatic transmission, so I'm not surprised about that.

Still have some others to drive but I'm leery of the GM offerings because of oil consumption issues that seem to be chronic across the board according to my GM mechanic buddy.
