That makes much more sense! Lol


So far the floors have Ben staying cool. I also have more leg room, the 12 in sub seems louder with Monstaliner vs carpet and my Gf and I agree that it feels like there is more air flow near the floor. Might just not have noticed it as much before though.

Since taking out my storage system, I decided for now I didn't want it in the jeep any more and opted for the kss (keep it simple stupid). I used the lid from my storage box that was to big to open in the jeep and hit up home depot for some 2x3 for legs for it. So far so good, creates a lot of space for cheap all of my gear/tools are in craftsman bags. I can even fit my camping cooler. Best $2 dollar investment made so far!




Edit also will need to get a cheap net cover to hold things down on top. And if I like this set up enough I'll get a net like this person did

A bit of an update, found out my ac condenser has a hole in it after I put a $30 bottle of r134a in it and heard it all leak out. :

Also I have been experiencing smoke coming from the exhaust color is whitish. But only does it every once in a while. Drove it a few times today once it was blowing smoke and the other longer drive it didn't. I let it idle for a few minutes and pressed the gas a few times and no smoke I'll have to keep an eye on the fluid levels. I have an oil leak rear main so it's a little hard to judge the oil but hasn't been losing anymore than what was normal for it.

And the coolant was a little on the low side but I haven't checked it in a few weeks since flushing it. So I figured it used what was in the bottle to fill it up. But we will see in the next week or to how it persists I only drive 8 miles round trip to work so it might take a while.

I am also experiencing oil in my air filter from the Ccv breather on the drivers side valve cover. I replaced the Pcv valve and line.

Haven't done much to it lately, will be either doing the exterior monstaliner, iro rock sliders, or kolak h4 headlight upgrade in the next few weeks.

Went hiking in allegheny state park today and found a neat overgrown trail, that I believe no one has been on for years. Went part way up it and turned around because I didn't feel like moving brush and logs. but hiked up the trail a ways and haven't seen the end to it. Can't wait to check it out further. :twothumbsup:

I haven't actually got it yet, but I imagine that any truck catalog would have netting for sale

Thanks and defiantly all silver will be desert sand and anything black will be black. Lol I was debating on putting the badges plastidipped black back on but I don't know what kind of adhesives I would need because of the liner
