EMTJEEP I would go with Monstaliner like stated before. I had Herc and it was way to gritty and sand would get stuck even when I vacuumed.

Get some engine degreaser at your parts store and spray the whole engine down with that and spray with a hose. Just don't spray the Alternator directly with water or the degreaser. Maybe even wrap it up in plastic just for some added safety.

Those rubber bumpers are your ball joints. To check them jack up the front and see if the tire wiggles. If they are bad they can be a pain especially if you do not have the proper ball joint puller.

Have you aligned your front end? If not you can easily do it at home. Here's a link for the how to TJ Toe-in Alignment - 1 This is the write up I followed and it was done easily.

BTW your outer U-joint is worn out and about to fail.
Yea the tire is leaning in and wearing the out side of my tire. When the steering wheel is straight yes. It seems to be the rubber spacers on the top and bottom of the arm joint?

1 and 2 are pretty well handled but I will add that sand will wear the paint off pretty quickly from feet and shoes scraping on it and you dont want any bare metal at the beach, if you pull the carpet put some mats in and keep an eye on things.

BLK00TJ 1. Monstaliner. Good durable surface and not too gritty to trap sand.
2. Simple green. I use foil or sandwich bags over air intake and alternator. Spray and squirt off with a water hose.
3. Not sure what you're asking or what the problem is.

dredg009 I believe it's already painted under the carpet just clean it real nice and it'll look better than the carpet. Mine was the same color as the exterior.

5 to 7 questions.

1. I would like to get rid of my carpet and paint, but I'm not sure what kind of paint should I use? I live on the beach so it's sandy all the time so I need something rough and won't flake off easily.

2. I've been wanting to clean my engine bay but idk what can and can't get wet and what should I beg? There's a lot of grim and dirt. So what products should I use? Can I use a hose?

3. The front passenger side wheel sits towed in I believe and is ruining my tire. What's causing it I think are these rubber bumpers, so are they easily replaced? Where do I get them?
