hey laggy did you try to find any install videos for the crusader rear bumper? I can find a few for the shield tire carrier but can't find any for the bumper. I was just wanting to watch it before hand so I can see exactly what's gotta go on. and if I have any problems I can refer to the video

I don't. It's VERY easy. Possible one of the easiest things I've ever installed. I'll make something up that shows the mounting points.

I used Lucas Red and Tacky #2. As long as it's a Lithium EP or Moly EP (Extreme Pressure) you're good.

also laggy did you order LEDs for your rear crusader bumper? I want to order some but don't know which ones to order. I think the 2x2 row will work but I'm not sure

No, not in particular. But I have ProComp S4 2x2's that I test fit, they fit fine. Although I'd go with diffuse or flood pattern for rear in case anyone was behind me and needed it for helpful trail lighting. 4 Wheel Parts has them for $119 right now. Lifetime warranty and excellent relay and wiring loom. All you need is a switch. You will need to extend the wiring depending on where you run them, but that's with any brand.

I have some 7.5" flood pattern ones back here now hooked on a switch, so all I would need it to order them. wired ran already hooked up to a male and female on the end by the led so I can hook them easier an replace

Got Magnaflow midpipe/cat combo. Rugged Ridge ceramic coated headerswere delivered, as well. Banks cat back is already on. Got everything apart and old headers off. They are strange creatures indeed. A custom job most likely. I'm gonna clean gasket surface, throttle body & intake manifold. I have zero idea how i'm gonna get a torque wrench in to do the 24-26ft-lbs required of each bolt.....Pics to follow

Finished cleaning exterior of intake. Gunk degreaser and a brush. Still didn't get all of it. A glass bead job or whatever would be nice. Throttle body cleaned. Both gasket mating surfaces cleaned. That took 3 hours....

Can't find which side of Fel-Pro gasket is which side...

I am installing a intake/exhaust manifold gasket on a 98 jeep 4.0 Fel-Pro # MS 94790. There is no clear marking on the gasket for engine or manifold side. Also is it ok to use hi-temp copper spray gasket sealer to hold this gasket in place? thank you

Hi Jesse,
Thanks for your post!
The MS 94790 is a fiber faced gasket on both sides, it make no difference which side goes to the head or manifold, just line up all the ports. Fel-Pro does not recommend the usage of sealer on this gasket, if you need to hold the gasket in place us a little high tack adhesive on the head side of the gaskets only at the bolt holes.
More information on hw to tell if a gasket needs to be installed a certain way can be found in this blog: http://www.felpro-only.com/side/[/u...l]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJpuvIMv0ik
