And that my friends is how long it takes to find the tools needed, strip the entire front suspension off the truck and put the tools away having never done it before. Talk about user friendly!!!! LOL Everything except for the radius arms is off the truck only cause I didn't want to break the brake lines loose and drop them... No biggie though, they look good. Off to buy paint to see if I can at least get the frame rails painted tonight. Tomorrow night I'll get my hardware list made and paint the suspension components for reassembly on Thursday evening possibly...

Thanks for the link. Those are going to push in the tires a little and I'm actually looking for some that will push them out about a 1/2 inch.

My S/D got hit at the gym; same thing, driver's side popped just like yours. I used the rear passenger handle with no lock cylinder hole just like Spaceball said. I also put those jimmijammers on all four corners. Get OEM handles though, don't cheap out and get aftermarket. Pretty low quality crap for aftermarket stuff.

Yes, I'm totally an a$$hole... I know... wah... LOL
I don't have 400 hp yet, but I have a v8. Pretty sure I can justify it too. And I don't have deathwobble.

I honestly have no clue what you drive so for all I know, you probably need a V10!

I swear!!! I should've never come to work in this side of the auto industry!!! I remember when I used to stand up for jeep owners and used to think they were smarter then the norm!!! A gas cap was too complicated so I had to do installation instructions, the first revision was a page long. That still wasn't good enough so I made a 4 page long installation instruction page for a gas cap that even went so far as to explain the technical terms of clockwise and counter clockwise and even included a link to a youtube video showing how to put a gas cap on.

Now this morning, I get to write instructions on how to install our universal fire extinguisher mounts because obviously people can't think for themselves. I don't understand how some jeep owners know how to operate their vehicles in all honesty at this point. Why did you buy the mount in the first place if you had no idea of what to do with it? I explained to the person on the phone that they had to either drill some holes and mount it with bolts or commonly, most people mount it with hose clamps to their roll bar which we actually sell as well. I'm pretty sure the dude hung up the phone still clueless as to what to do with it.

Well nobody messed with my vehicles last night... I put up a sign that said smile for the camera. I still have to watch the video to see if anyone showed up and was scared by the sign.
