Maybe you should post them up for sale and see what happens!! You might be able to make a quick sale on them.

After my next paycheck I might post them on Craigslist and see what happens. I'll just keep em attached until I get a hit that actually wants one.

Would you get the overline or the arch fenders?

I know this will be a long drive but it would be worth it.

Well I was finally able to finish the Monstaliner today, it's drying now so I'll add pics later. I did the two coats and thought I was being generous on each coat but I ended with half the gallon left... We'll see how it turns out. Probably replacing the RMS tomorrow.

I had about a pint left over. If it looks good then don't worry about it. After it cures good it will take alot of force to go thru it.
Good luck with the RMS. But are you sure the leak is coming from there? Sometimes the aft side of the valve cover leaks and it looks like a RMS leak. I need to look at my valve cover also and see if it needs a new gasket.

Well I've looked around and it doesn't appear to be the valve cover. I'll change the RMS and keep my fingers crossed that that's the fix.

Edit: I can't even get the O2 sensor off, so I posted in Dirty Old Man's thread on LSJC forum for some help. I'll get to it on a later day.

Well the latch in my tailgate is broken after it slammed shut multiple times on the trail. I tried messing with it to make it functional again, but no luck. $200 for the SWAG Offroad kit seems a bit much for just hardware, I might just run around with it ratchet strapped. I found new latches for ~$100.

Have you tried adjusting the latch? I would help you with the RMS, but I have the weekend booked. I'm taking my wife 4 wheelin for the first time at Bridgeport in the morning.

Do you have a torch? Heating it up will help alot.

It's not that the latch needs adjusted, but the internal connecting piece that connects the lock cylinder to the lever. That and the latch housing is bent.

Well the O2 sensors are the 15 year old factory ones. So I think they've kind of formed to the pipe.
