its rubbing more in the rear. I'd assume on the plastic lower trim. I'm going to start cutting tomorrow i think. Thanks :beer:

I had the opposite problem.. Rear never rubbed at all. All my rubbbing came from the front..

Installed front and rear adjustable lower control arms, gas tank skid, transfer case skid and steering linkage skid plates. All in all a very accomplished evening.

Now paint the cladding black (grey is not teh hawtness) and lift that thing!

OT: Unfortnately nothing, other than making some money to buy my lift/shocks. My sister, however, entered herself into the Jeep Gift Card contest and won a $250 Mopar Gift Card. That'll probably buy 1/3 of her fuel pump, knowing mopar prices.

Just picked up a 97 Laredo last week. The brakes were making a clunking sound so I figured I would put new rotors and pads on all four corners. The front brakes were in good shape but here are the rear rotors I pulled off.




PO said the noise didn't bother him. I also changed oil + filter, air filter, starter, wiper blades, 3M headlight restore and hit all the grease fittings. Just basic maintenance stuff and its running great.

open the rear lift gate, and pry them off gently. I had to remake a gasket that is attached because it fell apart due to age and heat. They are held on by 3 clips and squeezed into the sheet metal just behind the window. It's actually really easy.

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Fixed the links for you. When you post here, you need to use a link with some sort of extension like .jpg. When you post from picasa, you need to copy the image url like this.
Code:

On to the pics.




ps. Looks like it sat for a long time, as the shape of the rust looks like the shape of a pad.

Cladding gets painted this week. I did the wheels solo and I was in pain for 3 days after. I took the wheels off and did everything very slowly which was due to wanting it to be right.

Now I have the NightShade for the Rear but not too sure on how to do it
a.) Black out everything but the Reverse bar
b.) Black out everything but the Reverse and the Blinker
c.) Black out all the Red, Partial Tint on the Blinker and Clear on the reverse

I want to keep the reverse clear I think.

Thanks for setting my images straight, I was in a hurry and never bothered to make sure they worked. Oh and that rust was actually a chunk that just fell off. The whole thing was like that were pieces would just break off.

Bought a rear-wiper and a bottle of touch-up paint. Put some on the rear-bumper. We'll see how it sets. For 6 bucks, I figured it was worth a shot.
