Trying to get a bunch of stuff knocked off my to do list on the jeep so I can go wheelin this weekend.

Main focus on electical work to wire up my fronts, reverse, and rock lights to make the night wheelin a bit easier.

Also putting together a check list of what I need to pack since this will be the camp trailer's maiden trip!

Needing to do a 20K service. I can do it but I need the time, $ and a couple of tools.

It will get done, when I get to it. C'est la-whatever...

Ken,

If the offer is on the table man, I’d love the help ... I need to get my hands on one of those tools or find the thread on the makeshift one...

Let me know if you’re down to help me do the install, Ill make the trip for that, I've been staring at these things and wishing they were on already...

I figure with two people it shouldnt be to bad

---- The village idiot could always use more knowledge ----


Let me know

Kyle

From personal experience....if you are thinking about getting a nutsert tool and installing the rockers with them save yourself ther headache and forget about it. Just drill small holes and use regular nuts, bolts and washers!

What about the areas where you can't use a nut? I know along the door step you can-- but I was unsure about the sealed areas.

Well we have most of our trails up in Ma, Vt, and Nh, but we have a few private lands in CT.

90% of the bolts you have access to. The 2-4 bolts that you dont you can either leave out or use longer bolts that will make it into the cab. Its hard to explain over the web but I had to do that for my Rokmen rockers since they are beefy as hell. But to be honest the rubi rails are light as hell and only really need 2-3 bolts to stay on nice. As is is the oem bilts that hold them on are amazingly tiny.
