I realized that they were different sizes, AFTER I installed one side. Haha right ten and there I realized so THAT'S how you screw up brake shoes.

Glad you got it back. I don't know what I would do without mine. Mine doesn't have A/C. And all black...and I would agree summer has finally arrived here in MN. Along with the humidity.

yeah it does. i wish i had a backup transmission. lol i drove my uncles hyundai for a week, then his neighbors ranger for a week and now im driving my moms expedition...im sick of putting gas in other peoples cars. lol. the weather has been so nice too.

im one of those people who gets excited every morning when i think about getting in my jeep and driving it to work. ive been a cranky, miserable person for the last week or so - i think i know why. haha.

anyway, i guess ill clean the spiderwebs out of it tonight and wait for a text from the transmission guy saying that he got ahold of my gears. lol

First, I want to say the folks at Rockhard have EXCELLENT customer service. When I received my shipment, I was missing one of the gas tank holders and some hardware to assemble it. They were FANTASTIC and got all the missing items to me in a couple of days. I was able to install everything and go on my trip the next day.
So here is a pic of the Rockhard bumper/tire carrier with gas mounts and a luggage rack. Everything went together very well and the instruction were easy to follow. I sprayed what I was going to be taking off with PB Blaster the day before and that did help. The time for installation was about 6 hours. 1 1/2 hours of that was just getting my old bumper off. Ran into problems like a bolt breaking as I took the nut off and stripped screws holding on the plastic ends of the bumper. I did it by myself, so if you had a helper it will go faster. For example, I had to prop up the bumper on one end while I was bolting the other. Sorry no pics during the install as I was leaving for a trip the next day. Below is a pic after all installed packed and ready to go. I was very happy with the bumper during the trip. No rattles and did it's job! We did Lockwood/Miller Jeep trail and camped the night at the top.

That's my personal favorite thing to do is show up for the inspection without doors. And I don't use a mirror kit so they always give me crap.

Change the spark plugs ($30), fixed my battery line, fixed my A/C condensate drain from leaking into my Jeep, cleaned up the seats, cleaned the inside of the hard top, and put in a can of Sea Foam into my gas tank to clean her out. Next is ordering my lift and wheels and tires!

Was that by any chance dripping into your passenger floorboard??? I've noticed mine gets soaking wet, like puddle of water randomly.... that's the only thing I can think of that may cause it

It was great, they had a someone training, She looked back at the guy and was like uhhhhh, And she was like I guess I cant do the window Test. Then jokingly she was like Go ahead roll down your window for me. So I made the hand crank motion just being dumb. It was funny.
