Chris has a hood lock like this.

Amazon.com: Megatronix - HL5 - 5 Foot Mechanical Hood Lock With Starter Cut Off, For Compact Vehicles: Automotive


It's not really hidden but seems pretty secure and there is no reason not to do a second switch for a fuel cut off.

I'm coming from the north so it is easier for me to get to scissors junction (S2 and 78) than to meet at Santa Ysabel. No reason to go up and over the mountain at Julian if I don't need to.
Map if you have one?

I'd help but I gotta fly out to Chicago this weekend. Just make sure to take your time setting the inserts and take great care to drill their locations underneath PRECISELY. Also, a little dab of antiseize dabbed under the insert setting tool's bolt head and its threads that Savvy sent you will do wonders for its longevity and effort needed to set the inserts. Enjoy, those are great sliders.

Oh, did you get the stainless steel or the carbon steel rub rail? I had trouble keeping the carbon steel rust free because I didn't want to paint it. I had to keep wiping it down with oil so I wished I had gone with the extra-cost stainless steel version instead.

After that Jeep was stolen, I bought Gerald's (from Savvy) black Rubicon and he black anodized all the Savvy equipment mounted on it. I miss the natural aluminum look.

Too bad I don't get home until 1am Friday night before you guy's desert trip, I would have made that one!

I'll painting everything this weekend, I plan on fitting everything tomorrow to make sure it goes together. Then prep and paint all weekend with reassembly either Sunday night or Monday. I got the slider steps which they only make in carbon steel. I want to put a good layer of paint between that and the aluminum because those two metals don't play real well together.

I think the plan is to start at Oreflame, which is right at the Banner store. Maybe 5-8 miles from scissors crossing.

Sure. We can meet here or ramona or at dudleys, what ever makes sense.

I'm sure Keven will start a thread eventually.

Just wanna know basically if I can get away with buying some hoses and clamps or if I need a cheap kit at the least.
BTW. It seems to work best if you put the second cooler after it comes out of the radiator. The the flow should go out from the front most connection on the transmission and return to the other one.

So it makes more sense for me to meet you at the Banner store. No need for me to drive all the way down, then up the mountain, then down the long and winding road, that leads to the store......

What time at the Banner Store? 9:30?

It's not this next Sunday. This Sunday is Halloween.
It's the Sunday after it, the 7th. The next one after Halloween.
Do you work every Sunday?

I like the lift, but it does ride pretty rough, I've been thinking of getting some bilstein or OME shocks to soften the ride but its not too bad. I got a little sad when I saw my mpgs drop with the 32s but then I realized I wasn't calculating that my speedo was off so it stayed about the same

I had a chipped gear in my rear differential it was grinding really bad when the wheels were rolling. Had a local shop fix it but it by the sounds of it I should have just upgraded They re-torqued my spacers when they fixed my differential. Its about time to rotate the tires though, I'll check on them again... do you have a jack I can borrow?

I've got my front recovery point and need to do my rear and I'd be down for the mountains or the desert! I still owe you guys dinner too.
