I got the breaks all hooked up and it is better stopping now. I think I might have to adjust it a little, but not sure. Is there anyone else with a JKU using the invisabreak system that adjusted it? If so what setting did you use?
On another note I was towing my jeep from Amarillo to Albuquerque in the rain and when I got there the jeep was hard to start, and I discovered that the large vacuum hose attached to the upper plenum had popped off. Has anyone had that happen?
Finally what would happen if one were to maybe leave the transfer case in 2WD and the Manual tranny in neutral for about 50 miles? I'm asking for a friend...

Have you tried driving it yet? My wife and I have a checklist we run through each and every time we hook the jeep up. No shortcuts. Except once....I told her the transfer case was in neutral. It wasn't. Luckily we always drive about 25-50 ft with her walking alongside the jeep. She heard a terrible racket after a couple of feet and told me to stop. Luckily there was no damage.

I have driven it a few times, and there's something that isn't right. It almost sounds/feels like a throw out bearing gone bad, or maybe some other kind of bearing...

So on Tuesday I traveled from Tucson, AZ to Alamogordo, NM and when I stop or gas in Las Cruces I noticed that my frame bent where the 8k lbs hitch is installed. I donít know how this happened as my Jeep weighed in at 5100lbs. Iím not sure when on the route this happened, but at one point a Semi truck cut me off and hit his brakes pretty good causing me to slam my brakes briefly. I do have the roadmaster invisabrakes installed on the Jeep. Iím going to call Thor on Monday to see if they will take care of this, because what good is an 8k lbs hitch if the frame itís mounted to wonít hold up to 5100 lbs? Has anyone else had an issue like this?

No it isnít, and I still have to get all the way across Texas. I may be getting a car dolly to pull my car with my Jeep and have the wife drive the motorhome.

That sounds like a much safer way to proceed...
The best of luck to you; with getting everything home in one piece!
