The Jeep has gone through three four, this is number 5. I did notice the PO/builders home made bracket was slightly out of align, worked to resolve last week, pretty close to perfect, but it happened again last night, thankfully only 10 miles from home on a 700 mile trip.

I ordered the KW bracket and an American made PowerMaster 100 amp to surely resolve it once and for all.

Is it just the bearings or other failure?

I was able to purchase parts to rebuild them pretty easily.

No clue if they made it thru 2020 but I got a lot of smalls from this place back a few years.


No relation to that company but have had positive purchases.

But overall sound like you got this one figured out with your solution.

Bearing. PO told me this would be number 5.... They replaced it, I made another adjustment to the bracket, it looks dead to rights aligned.

Thanks for the reply Tim
