Not sure on Simple Green, but FWIW a lot of products are the same concentration just rebranded for market niche and placement in different stores/areas of stores. I wouldn't be surprised if Simple is the same way.

Like Laggy said, kerosene works. My dad always used a little gas back in the day (not recommended for smokers ). I used a can or two of brake cleaner when I did my pumpkins a while back because I was tired of scrubbing. Worked great.

Used it to pick up full carpet set for the WJ. The sunrider feature of the Trektop came in very handy. Had the rear section of carpet rolled up as best I could, seatbelted into the passenger seat with part of it sticking out through the top. Felt like Sanford & Sons.

Sometimes you gotta do what ever it takes.
I've hauled some interesting things with my Jeep as well.

I have as well, I had 3 35s inside the cab, 1 33, and then the other 35 and 3 33s on the hitch hauler. All with wheels. Can we say squat? Haha

I've done 2 full JCR bumper setups with adventure tire carriers. Not as impressive as you, but awkward shit to carry.

Napa has them in their helper section. I had to trim 2 tabs to make it look like original, it came with four lock tabs...(they're meant to be trimmed)...gotta obviously wire them in, but they come with leads attached. Sold in singles.

This was by far the most awkward haul with the TJ yet. I can't imagine all those wheels/tires.

haha. I sure got some funny looks rolling through Winston-Salem on 40 among all of the commuters.

I swore I'd get pulled over. The tires were at least up to the tailgate, I laid them flat, and they stuck out like 2" each side of the body....and it was 2.5 hr back home and probably 2 hrs of that trip was at night haha

Btw the only time you're allowed to ditch a zx6r is for:
1) another zx6r
2) a zx10r
3) a wrangler

Well played sir.

Posted this in cheap, fun and easy and it was suggested I post it here too.. Pretty new to Jeeping and this is my first attempt at a mod of any kind. I playfully call it my shock shift.. Pretty rough mock up and still a work in progress but I can make it over and over with stuff just laying around work so if someone has a suggestion don't be shy. Going to take some better pics tmrw in the day light

I love a good mid-life crisis. I got lots of cool things. I've had about 6 of them. Started early at 28.
