As for my beautiful face... Who couldn't love a face like this!?!?
Damn those door sill guards! Now it's turned into Rubi 44s and 35s!!

I cleaned the area with windex and then wiped the area down with acetone before installing them. I thought that would be enough. It's not the end of the world. I got them from Quadratec originally I think. That, or 4WDH. I can't remember. The rocker pieces came off this winter after being on there about 6 months. My wife told me the other day that they were peeling off. I told her to just pull them off if they were coming off so it wasn't all raggedy in the meantime. The windshield pieces started coming off after my road trip to Colorado. I am pretty sure it had something to do with all the wiper fluid I had to use to keep the windshield visible in mid summer combined with the constant 80-85 mph speed there and back. Once the lip of it started to go, bugs and **** got stuck under the lip, then the wiper fluid against the adhesive I'm sure didn't do any good. It was only a matter of time then. The lower, smaller pieces stayed on (as far as I remember, I only remember pulling the bigger part off). It was just the longer pieces that came off. The rear tailgate sill piece started to peel before I left. I don't know. I thought it was pretty clean under there when we put them on. If you think it would be worth putting them under my windshield guards and rockers then sure, I'll take another set. If not, then don't worry about it man. I appreciate the offer either way.
It's not the rocker ones that came off, it's the door ones.

As for the other part. Yessir you'll get to help. But leverage? Guilt trip? Really? I'm twice a married man Rod. Leverage and Guilt stopped working on me a long time ago. But I'll help in return. How's that?

Ah but James, you forget that me and Megan are best friends now, I'm teaching her about things like u-joints, and drive shafts, and leaf springs(and why lift blocks are bad), and Ford 9"s.....ok, it's a slow process, BUT I did convince her that if she bought you a 9", you'd probably let her name the kids.

Ah, well there you go Blaine. He's seen my Jeep more than I have in the last 5 months.

Rod, it's kinda creepy talking to her about Jeep stuff, and having her respond in kind.

I am going to call Redrock4x4 here in a few hours and order the Swayloc.

MMMmmm build parts.

Watch yourself with that Rod, you wont see the effects, but James will. I thought by teaching Alisha about jeeps, and getting her involved would be awesome, well it is....to a point. She is getting to the point where she knows what I am talking about and knows when I am not being quite honest with the dollar amount I will be spending! Its backfired!! She has also learned what I need and what I don't need! They are smarter than you think, she is using it against me.

Oh and James, 5.13s bro, thats all I gotta say. DO IT

blah, 5:13s are deep, and if I remember right, TOO deep for a D30. I wouldn't be able to go 60 mph!

5.13s FOSHO! And boy do I feel lucky. Not married and my GF encourages me to do what I want with my rig.

EDIT: Oh yeah, too deep for D30. 4.88 then.

I am talking about the JK 44 you have come across

With those heavy *** pitbull rockers you are getting, you'll need em man, I will be running 4.88s but turning a light 35 (61 lbs). your tire is 14.50 wide and weigh 73lbs, but those are the bias, obviously I don't know the weight of the radials, but radials are typically heavier because of the steel belt

We'll see. I haven't even heard back from the guy. There was a local sale pending. But we'll see. If it works out, it would be cool, but I don't know.

Nice looking start - will keep a close eye on this build. Looks similar to a list of parts I have seen before.

I spaced seeing what you wrote about the tires earlier, my tires PROBABLY won't be 14.5 wide. They are looking at making some narrower tires. I'd be content with a 13.5. But if I have to run a 14.5 it's not the end of the world. It will be interesting to see that 14.5 on a 9.5" wide wheel though.

Stay Tuned Idaho, I'll be bugging you later.

thats because I added it later, a 13.50 would be much better, Redsmoke (jeremy) has 35" bfg krawlers and those things are 13.50s and they are MONSTERS
