Clay L, if one of these guys don't scoop that thing up, IM me a price and see what shipping would be to 32626. I don't need one at the moment, but having a spare lying around would not be a bad thing.

Ok, I know this is a little off topic here but, I am going to ask any way. Being newer to the lifting game and chasing down a few issues that came along with it, I found this. When getting up to highway speed about 55, I develope a vibration. Do you think it may need a SYE? It is a RC 4inch and has a T case lowering kit and also placed washers just for a little extra. I have them "back to front" two, one and 0 just for a little more angle.

No problem Ray, I don't remember reading anything about these seats for the year I have owned my Jeep and thought it would be a good thing to share. I hope it helps.

You do sit a lot higher don't you! The seats are very comfortable and have much more cushion than the OEM seats.

I have an unknown brand of steering wheel so I might look into getting a smaller one in the future. Thanks for the suggestion.

It came from an old cargo net for the back of my wifes Toyota RAV4, she didn't like using it, said it was a PITA. We were having a problem with our dogs sticking their heads out the triangle and standing on the fender flares then slipping onto the rear wheels.

Put the netting up and problem solved, that and the dogs are much safer.

It wasn't today, but I replaced my valve cover and went from leaking a half a quart a week to not leaking oil at all.

Finally found a good easy way to find exhaust leaks. Set up your shop vac so it blows. Insert into tail pipe. Using a saturated towel, wrap it around the vac hose to create a temp seal. Using a long screwdriver helps to push it up in there really good. Turn it on. Spray a soapy water at all the flanges, manifold, etc.
I found my manifold leaking like a racehorse. Replaced gasket and it is SO much better now. A couple of the back bolts were not even tight.
Now here is my next issue. After a test ride, got home and now it will not shut off! What? I turn the key off, and it still runs. No, it's not dieseling. I suspect the starter relay. I bumped it with the exhaust pipe as I was removing the manifold. Got a few sparks. THEN I disconnected the battery. So after all the work, it started right up. But now will not turn off.

Suggestions? Starter relay?
