A ARMS HELP
Just Repainted my Trooper and was wondering if anyone has or can make the stickers for the tropper??

Does the UT500 need greasing? Where can I find the fittings? Thanks.
Since I’ve got about 7.5k mostly off-road miles on the old T4, the steering rack is pretty sloppy!
Installed a new one pretty easily though…
Had to use a new steering u-joint since the spline on the Joyner rack is a bit smaller/metric.
Used Latest Rage part number AC425152
and a 5/8”- 36 spline - 3/4 double D shaft.
I had mentioned in a previous post that I had removed the front anti-roll bar from my 2020 Outfitter 400; I ran that way for a month or so without noticing any downside however recently I installed a 'suicide knob" (see below) to assist my Parkinson's disease affected arms in turning the beast--but after doing so i found that in the quicker, tighter turns the knob permitted the vehicle would nosedive a bit, dig in, and plow on hard surfaces--not scary, but quite noticeably.
So I put the bar back on. Then today I got about 1-1/2 miles down the main road on the nearby power lines, turned around and came home to take it off--with the bar on, at 25 to 30 MPH, the front-end of the beast jumped like rabbit at each bump in either wheel rut., for a nearly brutal and quite uncomfortable ride. the bar (20 mm solid steel) is far too robust for the weight of the vehicle. The front bar on my 3900 lb. Infinity M37 is 30 mm...
suicide knob--for you younger folks:
My T-Boss 410 died hard on a run up the driveway and wouldn't restart. Cranks over fine, 12v at coil, fuel in cylinder (from plug check), and wire from computer to coil buzzes out OK. Computer threw a P0351 ignition coil malfunction message. I pulled the coil, measured resistance across the primary, and it was about 0.8 or 0.9 ohms, nominal for most ignition coils. I measured the secondary resistance as well and got about 6.5K ohms, also nominal for most coils. I checked the plug wire resistance and it was about 5000 ohms, which seems OK. And really perplexing, my spark tester shows spark. I got to feel it too, when I held my fingers too close to the conductor. 💩! Have any of you folks run across this?
