We had no cell service, it was early afternoon, and by bride has a mild cold. Walking 5-10 miles wasn't looking like a good option, and I am (at my core) a cheap son of a gun. Plus, I pride my self...

And my theory was that no time in the near future was I doing major rocks, so armor could wait. At least I saved myself the uber-expensive tow.

What are the odds?

2015 JKUR. First true wheeling trip today--just my rig, with my bride as my co-pilot. Doing the Tillamook State Forest in the Oregon coast range, which has relatively well-rated trails. Sticking...

It would. And I went back and forth between the two. Ultimately decided that I didn't want to have to worry about the tape.

Prolink here, because of the issue with synthetic rope and UV light. My plate is mounted from the light bar of my bumper, so clearance for me wasn't an issue.

FWIW, given what I had to do, would I purchase the exact same bumper again--I would, in a heartbeat. It is beautifully crafted, fits perfectly, and had the exact look I wanted. The mods I made (to...

FWIW, removing (really more unhooking) the springs does not impact the functionality of the headrests. They can still be locked in the "up" position if you have rear seat passengers.

If i already have surface rust on areas, does one spray the fluid film over that. Or does that need to be cleaned off first?

Not trying to save money. The rec is for dino 80-90 (or 75-90, can't exactly recall), which is the cheapest stuff at the store. What I'm thinking about doing is "upgrading" to the more severe...

Mixing differential oil viscosities

I am replacing my diff covers on my 2015 JKUR. The factory recommendation is for 80-90 front and rear, unless you are towing in which case you upgrade to 75-145 rear. Many other threads on here...

I know another manufacturer sells skids exactly this way, but I kind of like the idea of modding the Rock Hards (which probably voids whatever warranty might one with skid plates). This isn't any...

I was thinking about aluminum skids, and then fitting some UHMW plates over the top. Drill and tap holes into the RH skids, and just drill holes around rock washers that are in the way. I need to...

I ordered it without seeing it in person. Posted pics in multiple other threads here. I am totally stoked, but I get that it is a polarizing color.

Any way you can switch to U-haul? Their allowed weight is as follows (pastured from the website): "Must not weigh in excess of 5,290 lbs." Seems much easier.

And welcome to Portland.

2) Is it...
