No bad thoughts about getting a loud pedal. Won't get very many performance gains on a real dyno, but the butt and ears notice

Its not the regular sahara cover - its the limited edition one. Only 1000 were made and they were not manufactured by mopar. That's the only reason why I am thinking to hang onto it.

I know its the rare edition from the movie Sahara. Its not hard to find. They were $100 new and you can still get them. Try jeepsareus:
Mopar Part 5175336AA COVER KIT

Item# 5175336AA

$99.61

Its actually on sale at a few places for $88.00

Anyways the wheels arent rare anymore either since you can buy the brand new saharaclone wheels from quadratec.

My hands get all torn up though whether its hot or cold. Mechanix gloves are nice for those really cold days along with a propane heater lol I hate being all sweaty, rolling under the jeep and being coated in dirt and w.e else is on the ground. And I cant stand getting sweat in my eyes. The only plus to working on the jeep in the summer is you get sunlight till like 830pm

Hmmm... interesting. I will have to put some thought into this.

Agreed. One can only be so naked. Seeing as its my default setting - there isn't much room to get any cooler.

.... this..... this reminds me of batting practice on a cold spring afternoon. The pain still resonates in my brain.

Solution: Buy spot lamp and move to the arctic circle.

Just come over here! My garage is about 130F. Heat isnt the issue for me. I have been plotting to jerry-rig a swamp cooler for the garage.

Al's Liner is the best that I've personally seen. Also, you're not going to get much performance or impressive noise out of an exhaust on a stock engine; if you're replacing it due to rust, by all means, proceed.

Its a combination of unsightly rust and improving the sound a bit. Mostly- just because I want it. One would think I have a size complex or something....

But it certainly takes a back seat to more practical things like a tummy tuck.

Also- I had looked at Al's, but I preferred the Monstaliner simply because it doesn't have rubber solids as a filler. I am looking for a UV resistant liner. This means NO rubber fillers which can deteriorate over time with sun exposure.

Ok - So I did some more research and I went for the Monstaliner. I wasn't opposed to investing in a compressor and using a spray-on method.... but my adhesives and coatings senses were tingling on this one. As far as chemistry goes - it looked to be the most resistant and effective for my uses and it still fit in my budget.

It was $160 for the 1 gallon kit, tint, application kit and a quart of chassis saver sent to my door. This should be a fun project!

Also- I had mentioned that one of my buddies got that red JK ( he is who will be doing the bedliner project with me). Well another one just got a nearly identical one. Looks like the bug is really catching on.

Edit: I also forgot to mention... I have me some sweet new door-limiting straps. My doors opened too far with the stock ones- I was always catching it with my foot to prevent hitting nearby cars. So- I got some paracord and decided to make my own while I was sitting with Liz when she was finishing up her 8hr tattoo this weekend. I also started to experiement with a double-width band for my door handles so they could be all matchy but I am not so sure that I have the patience to get that one to come out right. Ill take pics when I get them on! I swear!
