I'm very seriously considering it... If I get my BB damage repaired by then. I'm planning to do that all tomorrow, but, you know what Mr. Murphy says about that....I see it's posted here now. You should go.

When the front shock mounts are done - they look like this:





The rear upper coil buckets get cut-off and repositioned like this:



Rear upper shock mounts get outboarded and frenched into the frame, plus Poly Performance lower mounts are added too.

Nobody has 'em. Nobody.

You can store that at my place though - just in case I find some.

BTW: Blaine was kind enough to give me an engine hoist! So I picked it up today.

Yep, a stand will come in handy. I'm not sure about this weekend yet as far as work is concerned. Sunday should be open I would think if Saturday doesn't work out.

so after working on my jeep's suspension for the past month or so, I just discovered that my radiator is leaking. I was not expecting thi$$ to happen one week before my 4 day trail/camping trip to the mountains in Baja. Would you guys recommend a radiator sealant or should I just not risk it and buy a new OEM radiator? The leak seems to be coming from the last rows, just on-top of the drain plug.

Would not trust sealant, plus it can clog the rest of the system. A good radiator shop might be able to repair it or spend the $ on a new one.

The worst thing about it is that I can't pin point where the leak is coming from, I can just see the antifreeze drops coming from ontop the plug. And the radiator it's only 4years old.

What Jeff said. Don't use that sealant crap. Get it repaired or buy a new one

Is the drain plug leaking?

how difficult would it be to get it to rick's place? I happen to know a guy that travels that way often.


obviously, I'm in no rush to get it right now still have to build the stand and whatnot, but it would be nice not to have to buy every size I want to use.

Thats what I also thought first, but in the first pictures it shows the leaks is coming from the top. I put my finger where the bottom cover is and where the row meets, it was wet.
