I have one question for you guys. Is there a location that I could install the Derale kit that would keep it out of the mud? We have some rocks, but we have much more red clay mud. I was worried about the fan and cooler getting gunked up from the mud, and not having airflow.

Thanks,

Mel

Hi Kat !!

And of course we only use the best Cinnamon from Watkins.

Just warm them in the oven at 250 degrees for 10-15 minutes and people will swear you made them, plus the house smells wonderful!

Hi Mel!

My Jeep puts a huge grin on my face every time I drive it.

I don't have a clue where you can put the fan and cooler where mud won't clog it up, it would have to be inside of the Jeep somewhere but then mud gets in there too! Your going to have to get creative, maybe some kind Jeeper who plays in mud can offer up a good place to put it. Anybody?

Hi John

mrblaine is not the only person who doesn't like mud! That stuff is near impossible to get off of the Jeep! And the last two Jeeps that stopped by with overheating problems were due to mud clogging up the radiator, they washed the mud off the front of the radiator but back was caked in dried mud blocking all air flow.

I heard that you just love packing peanuts

First, mrblaine generously gave me his 50" LED Light Bar that he got for a Christmas present from a good friend, and then he found these awesome switches too!

Judging by your profile and this post and who it's directed to, you are beyond clueless.

Jeep looks great as always, Kat. Hope all is going well.

Metripack 280's and factory-style rockers. Nice. Same thing I'm using for most of my wiring.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I'm looking to switch over to the Deutsche stuff, but the buy-in is steeper than I can afford for the time being.

The price point on the Metripack stuff is half of the reason I'm going with it; the other half of the reason is that it seems to hold up really well for what it costs...and I'm reasonably poor.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

This ^^ is one of the typical attention to detail items that makes Blaine and Kat`s build so good. This mindset gets carried over to the Savvy/Black Magic items they sell. Purpose built with function and quality being paramount. No added fluff, just top quality parts, well thought out and executed. Often with a healthy dose of innovation.

Few folks can argue the service that Blaine and Kat have given to the off road world in terms of knowledge, patience and generosity.

While we have had some heated discussions and I don`t always agree or sometimes understand Blaine`s position. I cannot argue the fact that he bases his facts on what works. Blaine has an uncanny ability to look at things "outside" the box and adapt these ideas into parts and build procedures that simply work.

Without his help my YJ would not be nearly as well executed as it is. And I`ve only scratched the surface on his knowledge base.

Proud to say that I consider Kat and Blaine to be a friends. Even though I have yet to meet them in person.

And I was a happy little ~Tard with my Weather/Metri Packs and you gotta raise the bar again with that Deutsche stuff.
