I hang my gopro from it an when taking it down the whole mirror came with. Always been told it would happen but its hung for 3 years with no issues!

I have a fix for it from stuff we use in patrol cars so it'll be mounted more securely so it won't happen again.

I hate it when online stores do not tell you before you check out that a part is not in stock.

I shop at a Volvo specialty shop a lot, and every product page tells the live count of that item. I have actually seen the number drop at busy times. Very helpful. And the order history page gives fairly accurate estimates on when an item will be in, should you go ahead and order something that is out of stock. It tells this this before you check out, too.

I think Quadratec has something like this now. But it is much more limited.

I wonder if such inventory control software is really expensive over the stuff many of the smaller 4x4 shops use. It seems that if they keep tabs on what they have that telling us as we shop would be an upgrade to their system and website that would not cost too much and would end up fostering some good customer relations due to the apparent transparency and honesty in the ordering process.

Otherwise, the way it is on a lot of sites seems like they simply want your money NOW and that they feel like, "Screw you, man. You'll get your parts soon enough. Quit whining!"

Hope you get your water pump soon!

Mamefreak Swapped 3 of the 4 radiator hoses. Drained and refilled with distilled again. Leaving the lower hose on for now until my new water pump comes. Sadly 4wd emailed today to tell me it's a 1-2 week back order on the part.

Also the brown Santa dropped off my Prothane winch isolator block and hi-lift keeper, Warn heavy duty hook with bottle opener and my Derale dual remote oil filter setup. This is a bypass unit so I'll be running 2 different types of filters and a magnetic collection system!

What model of head unit did you go with?

Bredirish123 I just found out I can get on the air force base nearby and rent their garage and a lift for like $5 an hour. My intention is to lift my TJ up, clean the frame and coat the bottom with POR-15.

For today though I just went over my rig and contemplated what I'll sink money into next.

Just Empty Every Pocket

Haha

12vtman Finally got my air vents to blow air somewhere other than the floor. Discovered the L shaped vacuum connector at the manifold was extremely loose, and one air line near the blend door was completely disconnected. Its the small things that make ya happy!

97WranglerOhio Got underneath to take a look at what I was pretty sure (read: hoping) was just surface rust. Grabbed a hammer, screwdriver, and wire cup-wheeled angle grinder and went over everything. Turns out it is just surface rust and doesn't really want to be there. One pass of the angle grinder and bare metal peeks back out. Excuse me while I do a happy dance. Gonna clean it all up, drill some drain holes, and probably POR-15 it or something similar. Happy day!

aw12345 Found the why the sector shaft started leaking, pretty wild that the pressure in the power steering box can bend a thick steel washer like that. I know it was perfectly flat 3.5 years ago when I rebuild the box
