Well I haven't "done" it yet, but I did receive my AtoZ rock sliders from the FedEx guy. Probably won't be able to paint them until the weekend though.

Poly filled my sound bar. And saw that one of my subs seal is tore. Any suggestions how to fix to hold me off for 2 weeks?

Get some epoxy I patched a hole punched in the front of my sub and that held up for 6 months and is still sealed perfectly

If its the cone, epoxy works, but if it is the rubber " surround" it has to be flexible. I have repaired many speakers for clients over the years

It does away with the factory linkage with a smoother operating cable http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/shifters/sk2xc.htm

I was tired of having to squeeze four people in my jeep with fishing poles so i made some velcro straps to go around roll bar to hold fishing pole/s up there. Heres a picture of testing it. Will hold two poles on each side

Just went out to test it it's amazing super smooth it's a 100% improvement over the clunky pos that was on there.

exactly why I replaced it!!! It's so awesome being able to make turns, hit bumps, take off from a stop, and idle without clunking and tapping LOL! It's great made the ride I just took seem smoother and quiter

It's a must do for sure it made a huge difference in how it shifted into 4wd like I said its smooth as silk!

The instal on the other hand was a PITA!! Ok so took a really long time to install it 3 or 4 hours not quite sure. I ran into tons of snags because of rust, and other little problems. I had to cut two of the floor mount bolts off, had to melt one of the rubber fasteners(I guess that's what you'd call it) to get the last piece off. Also the bolt on the top of the transfer case was a huge pain to get to plus it was in there real good took a ton of muscle and choice words to get that mo fo out. I used a socket wrench and there's only enough room on top of the t case to move that thing one or two clicks at a time. But if I would have decided to torch the dang rubber things out to begin with it would have been way quicker. The hardest part in removing the old piece of poop. The only problem I have with it is I didn't get the 4 nuts for the underside of the floor bracket just the bolts which is kinda dumb but oh we'll I'll make that call tomorrow maybe they don't use them any more who knows.
