Yeah, my pressure is on the high side too. It gets better gas mileage that way. I bet the issues are probably related to that.

I made a mistake on a rusty jeep frame once. NEVER AGAIN.

That said, this one honestly doesn't look that bad for 8-9 year old car as long as the price is right. Bring a hammer and screw driver...

The only reason I asked is because I noticed that whoever checked the guide I wrote for XT changed it back to 35 ft lbs. You might want to get them to change it to 80 so no bolts go untorqued!

I mean yeah it's dented, but its not his tub or door that is dented. Like I was saying in the other post, I view these sliders as a little extra protection when occasionally wheeling and that is it.
