Ohhh, I'm so irritated.....I hit 123456 on my '04 WJ a few days ago and completely forgot on my way home from work to get a pic of it.

I got to 123459 and said "OH HELL I FORGOT!" out loud....I'm at 1236-something now. The one damned time I could do this and completely forgot...

Went to a pick and pull today to look for a driver side seat for my '00 WJ so I can feel safer with my son driving it.

Found out that if I want a new(ish) driver side seat for this same WJ, that I'm probably going to have to shell out the $$$ for a new one. On my seat, the rail AND the back of the seat are both broken and I'm having to fold down the driver side rear seat and put a 4x4 block of wood underneath the pivot point of the back of the seat to keep it anywhere near where it's supposed to be......Luckily for me it's not being driven right now, I'm about to get the radiator fan motor replaced. I'm also going to have to get tires put on it b/c I'm a cheap son of a gun and can't get it inspected with the tires as they are...oh and right before I parked 'er the A/C condenser sprung a leak but my boy is probably going to have to pay for that himself if he wants A/C in it.

For my newer '04 I just bought a few weeks ago, spent nearly an hour trying to find the vacuum leak it has....Can't find it myself, so I'm taking it to the shop for a smoke test this weekend to get to the bottom of this P1494 code I'm getting. I'm starting to see the acronym in the J.E.E.P name....But hey, I love my WJs..

How did it go? Did you have to cut the metal sleeve to get them out or were you able to press them completely out?

It went very well. The trick I learned is to hammer the outer metal part into the rubber as much as you can. This will give the press a wider lip to press against. After I learned that, it took all of 10 min to press out the old and press in the new.

Aspencreekoffroad dot com

They sell d ring mounts for 150 I think. It's what I have and they are really solid. Definitely recommend. And d rings are better than hooks in my opinion.

For spacers, im assuming you mean coil spacers? the best price I found was fat bobs garage. Have had them for about a year, still perfect.

EDIT: these are on the classifieds if you're wanting to go cheaper. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f311/...hooks-1595209/
but like I said; D rings > hooks

EDIT #2: Another pair on classifieds http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f311/...ckets-1573654/

Sent from your back seat!!!

I bought mine for $35.00 on fleabay. If you get factory ones make sure each has 3 bolts, the mounting plate (one for each hook), and the nutserts (one for each hook) I had to buy the nutserts at the dealer for another $12 each.

Are you talking about the metal flange?

Ordered wheel spacers so my rubi take-offs don't rub on my engine skid at full lock. Looking forward to them rubbing on the front bumper instead.

Thumbs up on the budget sliders. Hardly budget, right?
