any of the following - goof off or goo gone, alcohol, adhesive/max remover Or you can buy a rubber wheel from a paint shop (looks like a big eraser) that chucks into your drill that will remove all of the old tape/adhesive.

Sounds like a piece of cake compared to the adhesive left behind by those friggen red stripe mouldings. It took me over 6hrs with adhesive remover, scrapers, a hair dryer, and anything else I could think of.

line up the lip on the top of the end cap with the back edge on the mount. they slide on. just give it a few taps and it should slide on.

Yesterday i started fixing the cracked hatch, I love working with fiberglass so i got the first layer on.

Today i dropped it off at a transmission shop and will hopefully not cost to much to stop the gears slipping.

Just drove the rig today to work and back. Haven't done anything major since this past weekend becasue the girlfriend will probably murder me. I spent the previous week and half doing the following:

- Driver side U-joint (took 5 hours, don't ask - still have to do the pass side)
- Installed a 750 watt power inverter
- Rewired my CB antenna
- Changed both headlights
- Took out the backseat to make space for spare parts, tool bag, camping gear
- Put on one new BFG AT since I blew one the last time wheeling
- Straightened out my bent up belly pan
- Changed the oil
- Flushed the rad and all hoses
- Installed new LCA's for the third time, but this time they're aftermarket and won't bend (I hope)
- Went over every nut and bolt to make sure all was tight
- Did brakes front and rear
- Removed rear hitch locking pin with angle grinder

There's probably more but that's all I can think of off the top of my head

I also removed the door trim. Just used soap and water with a washcloth. Took a while but it all came off and looks great.
