Sure enough the sound went away.

On my Commander the right front bearing was making noise but only on left turns. Similar sound as the KJ but instead of being consistent it was during turns only. Funny how the same part can show symptoms so differently from one vehicle to the next

I guess i'm jacking the front end up again and yanking things around to see if I feel the appropriate sloppiness.

also, any links to the preferred bearings?

When I had mine apart recently doing the right side cv and intermediate shaft the bearing felt smooth but sounded dry. It still has no play in it, but makes same noise as described when driving. I have a pair of timkens on order now. We'll see what happens.

Washed the exterior/interior. Replaced the 11 year old fog light housings. The new ones are nice and clean and the led bulbs in them are crisp.

Get Timkin or SKF, I think SKF is OEM. Left/right are the same.

It's better to have a winch and need it than to not have a winch and not need it

Today: went and got Christmas tree #1 with the KL. One of the local places that sells trees actually grows them and they get a few "wild" trees every year that kind of look like Charlie Brown trees and we love them. They had 8 to start today and had 2 left after we left.

I haven't bought a live tree in at least 15 years.

I've been getting them for about the past 10 or so, even in FL. Just fun to get. Usually put them up now and then run them to the burnpile long about late January.
