Essentially the answer they gave, makes sense. Id rather trim to fit than need more.

Performance wise i like the function and it provides better heat blocking and padding than rolling on bed liner. Not to mention no time spent with paint prep.

I have bought some of these before that were junk, broke the first time I used them.

If you are happy with yours please post where you got them.

Thanks

Carabinger Sling Door Limitors

I was browsing REI and I saw these in the climbing area. I decided to use them to replace the nylon straps on my doors.
They work great and are very robust to say the least. Should last a looong time.

Replaced original power steering pump, 215,xxx miles...pretty much worn out.
Had a heavy feeling wheel and every now and then it would just shut down and had to muscle it old school.

These were reasonable at about $7 each. I doubt I will ever have to replace them.
Most major cities have an REI. If not they are available on line.

Not sure I can clearly make out what they are. Do you mind posting up a link for them?

They look similar and probably would work well (I didn't see those at my REI) but these are the ones I got - see link below. I didn't use the rubber tip, not sure what
value it would add.

i'll have to look for those. I keep destroying the backup straps the PO had in the glove box and those look like they'll hold up well.

The rubber pice is made to hold the carabiner in place so the bone do not slide out of it.

I got it back from the shop.. Apparently the wheels that I have on it won't allow them to add weight on the outside so there is about 4 inches on every tire that isn't balanced. They said I need a different set of wheels so that they can be properly balanced.

Folded the windshield down a couple of days ago. Have a leak on both sides under the dash.
Took the seal out and soaked it in WD-40 for a bit. Wiped it down and reinstalled.
Poured down rain last night. No leaks!

Shenanigans! I worked in a tire shop for 6 years, we balanced everything from off road to exotics and antiques . These guys are simply incompetent. Go somewhere else.

started having problems lastnight with my speedo. it started jumping from 60 set on cruise control to 65,60,63,61,70,65,67, back to 60. sometimes it's less than that. only everynow and then and I only started having this problem lastnight almost right after I started my jeep on my way home from hooters an hour away. i have an 03 rubicon with 36,xxx miles. I believe it's related to the speed healer i have installed to electronically fix my speedo since I don't have a gear. havnt had a chance to look at it yet. any thoughts?

Pull your speedo gear and make sure it's not chewed up. Maybe a previous owner installed if incorrectly. It's about five minutes to pull it out and check it. Getting the right gear in there is simple too.

That is correct, the Rubi needs something to correct the electronic speedometer. I use a Blue Monkey Speedohealer on mine. Simple plug and play device.

Try running without it (should be plugged in inline). If speedo bounces around then it's not speedo healer. What sye do you have? The hall sensor could be bad.

If it stops bouncing then do the math by getting actual speed using a speedo app and record GPS speed when speedo is at 60. Plug healer back in. Reset the speedo healer/set back to 0% adjustment as per their instructions. See if your speedo shows same discrepancy vs GPS. Put in proper setting.

If that doesn't work then get with Blue Monkey for a replacement.

I told the neighbor that go figure....I DONT have the speedy truck out and I encounter a target rich environment.

I'll have the speedy truck out and it will be bubkas for people to mess with but a lot of jeeps.
