Not wood, but excellent guess. They make baseboards in a plastic material instead of wood (has a wood print finish though), and it was the only thing I could find that was exactly 2.5" wide, and about the right shape. I just don't know how this molded plastic will hold up to bumps and door dings and stuff. If I keep it on, I'll see if it can withstand the Phoenix summer.

The good thing is it's only $6 for an 8 foot piece, and only took an hour or so to cut with a dremel, prep and paint. Then another half hour to cut all the outdoor tape. It's still on after a whole day of driving, and didn't peel up at all.

Replaced both cv axle shafts and left hub/bearing assembly.

What can I tear up next???

Reminds me of the trim they had on the older Land Rover Discovery's, looks good on both of them too.

Hows anyone see you going down the road?

It does look nice though, too bad they don't make them out of real carbon fibre then clear coated too.

Read more about this, but from what I gathered you should take it for a spin and if you hear noises, add additive a little at a time to get maximum out of your lsd. I added addiditive on top of royal purple and it didn't seem to work like it shoud, so drained it halfway and added synthetic wal mart fluid to dilute the addiditive. Still think there's too much though.
