A gift from the previous owner....
Wondered why the handbrake wasn't very good. He has left the pins out!

wait until the backing plates fail.

Also, think I finally have the answer with my weirdness.
tried swapping out B2S1... didn't solve the problem.
finally started looking at a different set of O2 parameters (O2 Volts (0-1), instead of O2 Sensor Volts), and can now see that B2S2 is biased lean by about 0.2v compared to B2S1 (call it 0.7v average vs. 0.5v).

Now reviewing older data that recorded 02 Sensor Volts, I can see that it also is consistently ~.2v low (3.27v vs 3.05v). I thought that wasn't enough of a difference between the two for the system to care, but apparently it does.

Guess i'm changing out that sensor tomorrow.

I changed our my sway bar bushings, front and rear shocks and shock absorbers, and also changed out my front and rear bump stops, easy peasy!

I had a couple of errands to run in South Jersey today. Since the shortest distance between two points is a straight line …

… I found myself in the Wharton State Forest. ;)

At one point the dry sand was getting a little dicey. Around here they call it sugar sand, and it is easy to get stuck in this stuff. I was 0.2 miles from my next turn but too far in this stuff.

The next things I did was to air down to 22 lbs in the tires and turn around. Airing down helped the ride quality by an order of magnitude as well as in stability and traction.

A side road I passed a mile back was just right. The trees shaded the road just enough to keep the sand firm, unlike where the sun had baked it dry earlier.

Bonus points for you if you noticed that the left side of the road had been controlled burned by the NJ Forest Fire Service.

The right side had thick scrub oak taller than me. Lots of wildfire fuel.

The left side was neatly cleaned up by the flames. The fire was probably a few weeks ago as the huckleberry and blueberry were already resprouting. Next year the berries here will be epic.

The creek water is black with tannins from the vegetation. Beautiful. Also acidic and nutrient poor. The mossy shore is a good place to find carnivorous plants.

As I emerged from the woods I stopped at a campground to air up my tires to 34 psi again. Wheeling is so much fun. Especially impromptu wheeling. I did play it pretty cautious as I had no way of recovering the Jeep by myself. Is a ATH winch bumper in my future??? I wish!!
