No, no no. If you touch that, the spark plug juice will run out of the carburetor rods. Lift out the screen-topped piston first.

Got a screw removed from ma tire. Took it for a bath to remove all the tire shine that they sprayed all over my paint and bumpers. . It came off only after I used Windex as well. So if your in Canada I would not recommend Kaltire when I called them for a suggestion on how to remove it they only said yup ok bye. Called my dealership and they were really surprised at what happened. Should note that they referred me to Kaltire because they were really busy. Anyway my dealer was more than willing to detail ma Jeep for free and make it right. . So happy ending it's all good now. So Sherwood Park Dodge thank you again for caring and your after sale service!

Naw cat is cheap. The axles/tcase/armor etc took the lumps out. Not to think of the tires/more armor/paint will cost. But I sold my other toys, so it's just my play change from them.

I hear ya, I made the mistake of making a list with prices. I should have left the prices off.

Rolled under it and bolted up the new dshafts.

Layed there for a while on the creaper (it's nicely padded) and decided I need to order more junk.

Took her out for a leisurely stroll around some back roads with the windows out after the rain. It was quite refreshing getting the road spray on the back of the neck I want to enjoy every bit of the warm weather before the wife wants the hardtop back on.

ORO LiteDOTS

Just finished installing ORO LiteDOTS, still waiting on ORO to send the relay though to deal with the quick flash. Also had the top down all week, which is the first time without sweating to death here in Texas.

My wife picked it up out of the body shop today!!!

Now if I was home to drive it.

Grahams autobody in winnsboro Louisiana made the repairs. They went beyond my expectations in customer service. They completely painted it. They removed all hardware door handles. It is a perfect repair and paint. If I ever need bodywork again they will do it. They have earned a customer for life.

Thank you. Yeah the rack was made for a TJ so I am making a few mods to fit my YJ. As for my YJ, it's an 89 with a Chevy 350, and 700r4 tranny, and all the proper mods needed to keep from snapping drivelines and/or axles.

Yeah, you will get a little more flex that way. How do you like the 12.50's? Some of my crew says I should run with 12.50's but I really like my "pie-cutter" 10.50's

that's what i am hoping for. i like the 12.50's at the moment, im out in Az so i am mostly on rocks and like having as much rubber as i can on the rocks. plus i have 15x10 rims so they are the best fit that way.
