I would not do a turn down unless it was a temp fix. CO2 will find its way into the cabin on the trail at low speeds.

Nothing like flagging down and telling a cop about a fire on a trail and his only response is "you're not supposed to be back there". Wtf...so the trail with the big sign welcoming you to Red Rock is off limits. FU buddy, way to worry about the fire.

Me and my big mouth... Took the Jeep out today to run some errands and gas it up 'cause I wanna drive it tomorrow and wouldn't you know it. Heat killing my #3 injector and running rough with the check engine light. Guess I better get out my tinfoil .

Would you mind posting pics of the job your mechanic did?

If I can get these kids in bed tonight I will check the garage to see if I have anymore heat tape left.

I did a quick look and I could not find anything. I would not use tin foil, you do not want to use anything that can conduct electricity. I would run to the junkyard and grab an o2 sensor pigtail off of any car. It should have a nice piece of heat wrap on it that is the perfect size for protecting two wires.

I actually have some of that heat shield tape, I am just curious to see the best application or if there is a faster easier fix. It's too hot to work on Jeeps right now

Got the belly installed today! I would post pics, but still won't upload! What a PITA! Calling Adams on Monday to order driveshafts. It's coming along! Still TONS to do, but most of it is little stuff at this point.

Ha! Pansies! I was in the garage AND driveway ALL day, until about sunset! Did an axle swap in the driveway, from 1130-100, then finished my belly in the garage! Haha!

Maybe if you did it right the first time then you wouldn't be doing it again

Wasn't mine...anymore anyway. Sold my D35 and the dude paid me to help him swap it! Then he took the old one with him! Mine is just fine!

Normal!? Nothing on this thread is ever normal! HA! But yeah, someone had to make the comment. However, I'm unable to recall something that I had to redo because I didn't do it right first. Oh, wait, the dang OBA lines! Got me!
