Yeah, I am going to be investing in a hard top this coming winter. When I bought my Jeep the coldest part was already over

Each to their own. When you grow up using the metric system, imperial looks rediculous. Measures of 12?! WTF

190.1 miles travelled, 15.05 gallons fuel, 12.6 MPG, $121 NZD works out to $96.92 USD.

Agreed! I've grown up in the sciences so I've gotten used to the metric system. Very easy to convert between units. You can just move the decimal place to convert from km to m to cm etc. To convert from miles to feet you have to remember 5280 feet, then remember 12in in a foot. Its just dumb. Then liquid measurements are a whole different mess.

amen, thats the only thing that pisses me off about owning a jeep, get the socket set out and have no farking clue what all the imperial sockets are. sockets in 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20mm are simple.

And then Chrysler decided to switch between imperial and metric Willy nilly throughout the jeep. A 13mm here, a 5/8" here, a 9/16" there.

I agree actually. Metric is much easier for me because I'm bad with numbers so memorizing all that is hard for me.

$15 for washers and rivets and i got plastic mud flaps from work. Can u believe that thay thought the flaps were trash! I am not done yet but it is a work in progress. I want to fill the seams with something flexible then use rubberized undercoating to hide all the rivets and imperfections

Some I think have 3.07 or 3.73 that come stock. There should be a tag on the left side of the rear diff cover

Thanks took me 4 hours and 100 right rivets later. the flaps are like the same material as the stock flares and I am a carpenter so the table saw and a chop saw worked great. Oh and o used a jigsaw to cut the stock flairs flat.

You'll want 4.10/4.11 for 33s since your transmission doesn't have an over drive.
