I've had Nitro gears for a couple years now, set them up myself, zero issues. I would use them again.

Start the engine, give it a couple seconds for oil pressure to build and your good. I don't know what could possibly be special about our oil pans that would require a warm up period.

They are carriage bolts, apply some downward force to the bolt to lock it back in and continue removing the nut.

I don't know the thread size/pitch but your standard flat socket cap screw will fit the counter sink. Just don't get the "black oxide" kind, they rust quickly.

Something like these:

If the torx have never been removed I'd go for the impact because it's quickest/easiest. Like someone else mentioned the factory uses thread locker on those which adds to the problems.

The biggest mistake people make with torx bolts is using a socket wrench on them. Socket wrenches cause cam out, which is what strips bolts. The torx on the hinges happen to be pretty soft and makes...

If you can't afford Trutracs I would take open diffs over the clutch based limited slip for snow. I hated the one in my D35 so when I did the 8.8 I specifically went for open since I couldn't afford...

How big of spacers and how much total suspension lift? Likely it's not enough to worry about, but the fix would be re drilling the track bar mounts (not personally a fan of) or adjustable track bars.

Not sure if the Rustoleum stuff is UV stable or not. If it is then the answer is no, if it isn't UV stable another UV stable topcoat would be a good idea so it doesn't fade.

As the others have said it needs to go between the shock and gas tank, there's a reason the gas tank has a divot on that side. I would also specify it needs to be bent as close to the tub as possible...

What aftermarket adjustable arms did you get?

Not so much fan reliability as the controller reliability. A good quality PWM controller is very expensive.

Also, of course every FWD vehicle has an electric fan, the engines are mounted sideways.

Yes, I agree you can have an e fan set up that keeps the Jeep cool. As I was trying to clarify I made a typo in my original statement when I said "don't" but meant to say "do".
