TexasAg06 Last night I installed a black combination cam lock on my Bestop under seat lock box. The correct size is 5/8" and was only about $11 on amazon.

The lock that came with the box did not always open easily. Sometimes I would have to jiggle the key for a couple of minutes before I could finally get it unlocked. This is a huge problem for me since I carry my handgun in the lock box.

I'm wondering how compression of the tire (i.e. tire pressure) affects the setting. If you think about it, regardless of tire pressure, the same length of rubber has to contact the road per revolution, meaning the distance traveled per revolution is the circumference of the tire. If you take the tire off and change its pressure, the circumference would not noticeably change (due to the structure of the tire).

That said, my FlashCal says the tire size is 31.75, which matches my measured height of my stock tires on the vehicle, and my speedo matches GPS-measured speed. I didn't measure side-to-side to see how different that was, though.

I guess it depends how the FlashCal is programmed to interpret what you input and compensates that the tires are installed and at "correct" pressure?
I see what you're saying about the length of rubber on the tire not changing and it has me scratching my head. My original thinking was that the rolling radius is less than 1/2 of the diameter measured from ground to top of tire and that would affect my circumference. This seemed logical at the time, but sounds like it may be incorrect. Perhaps the variation has something to do with how FlashCal works.

In any case, for anyone that is going to use the FlashCal, definitely check your speedometer's accuracy using GPS (not your in-dash GPS!) or one of those helpful police radars you may see around town. Where I live it is mostly flat so I played with the FlashCal inputs until both my speedometer and odometer (on a 100-mile trip) were within 1%.

Drilled and/or slotted rotors increase braking efficiency by allowing the hot gasses created when braking to vent, which increases your available clamping force.

What did you do to your JK today? Hit the brakes at 120 then lost control, flipped a bunch, but my rotors stayed cool......

13JKU Added some KC Hilites 4" LZR LEDs onto the winshield. Install not too bad just time consuming since the supplied harness was a no-go. Distance between the two lights via the harness was setup for a bumper mounting. Hence, little splicing action and a little experimentation with routing, etc.

Overall love the way the look and they put out decent light.
