Installed my Thuren drag link and new SmartBar.

I got my steering wheel almost dead centered with the Thuren drag link. From what I read. It would be close but not centered.

The SmartBar weights about 75 lbs. It's not light.

Took the new SmartBar apart to see how much grease is in it. It's not packed, but everything is coated.

Took the old SmartBar apart. From other posts, and pictures. I was expecting the housing to be filled with dirt and mud.

The 1st pic. Have some play in the housing. When I push up on the bar. It wiggles.

The other pic's. No mud, or dirt inside the housing. I thought there would be some. Everything is still coated with grease.

Yep! I still have to install the bypass yet. This weekend I hope.

You still want a SmartBar to play with?

Have the 250 amp DC Power Hi Output alternator and their cable kit installed. It was pretty much straight forward on the install. On the cable kit. They give you two positive cables and one negative cable and a fuse box that holds either a 250 or 300 amp fuse. I got the 250 amp fuse. The long positive cable goes from the alternator to the fuse box. Then the short positive cable goes from the fuse box to the lug on the main fuse box. You need to get another positive from the main fuse box lug to the battery. I'm trying to get a piece of cable from DC Power. But they take their time in answering e-mails. :roll: Have the negative cable going from the battery to another spot on the frame.

Go to go up load pictures and they are to big. :doh:

Think the circuit board went bad.
