The old deflate the tires trick wont work ? My brother in law just did the same thing to his 6.0 in his Excursion . He likes it a lot more now that its studded and the egr delete is installed .

I could probably deflate and get in, but if I can find a different set, it would make it a lot easier to see and work on. Probably gonna have to build a little scaffold to make it easier. Gaskets have been looming over me for a while. I've been expecting them, I'm just not excited about it now

Dodged a bullet! Just got my truck back from being diagnosed. $90 for the diagnosis and $14 for a new coolant cap!!!! This means that I still have money for bumpers on the jeep!!!

Well, hit a few dirtroads last night and the redneck side I mentioned earlier finally showed its face. Overall I'm pretty happy with how she performed. Climbed a hill or two, flexed a little, had a small water crossing, and somewhere in there she got muddy. Spend a solid $15 at the quarter wash getting her clean again. Y'all have a good weekend!

Did y'all have to drill the tub to mount the rock sliders? I'd like to get some similar to the rokmens, but I'm very apprehensive about drilling into a hard-to-find tub. More holes=more exposed metal. Exposed metal=rust. Rust= bad stuff

I hated drilling the holes for my Rokmen , but I would hate a crushed rocker more .

Well, came across a deal on Craigslist last week. Bought a gray soft top with all of the hardware for $120 from a VERY nice lady. Apparently she talked the dealership into helping her buy a hardtop and had no use for the soft top. So she passed on the savings to me! It's got one place above a side window that has come apart, but an interior shop here said they could resew it pretty easy. I'm stoked! Wishin I already had it on to enjoy this 60* day!

Y'all be careful out there

Please post pics of the lift install! I've got to do something soon. Hopefully most of the kids are moving out soon and I won't have help removing mine. Got to come up with something.......

X2!!! Think my dad is getting tired of helping putting my top on and off. Will you be at the Hogwild shootout next weekend? P.S are you still happy with the lift kit?

Not a problem on pictures of the lift for the hard top. It's a really simple design. One of those "why didn't I think of that" things.

I won't be in Hot Springs this weekend. Honestly didn't know any thing about it. I've still got a rattle underneath that is making me a little nervous. I can't seem to find it. I've been underneath her looking 4-5 times now nothing I can find that's loose. Afraid I may have to take to the dealership to have some ears put on it. Other than that, I'm lovin my lift. I've only put about 2k miles on it so far, but I have no complaints. I was really wanting to get bumpers this month, but it looks like they'll be on hold for a while. Oh well

Never got around to putting up the hardtop lift, but I did buy a front bumper. I got it from 4wd for $100. Gotta take the grinder to one of the light mounts, but other than that, I like it.
