i wouldnt say a killer deal lol but im happy
a little over $200 shipped to my door

its hard to find these diesel products in Canada so i ordered online

the guy was able to hook me up with a wholesale membership so i got everything at wholesale price
probably saved around $60 or so

all in all i am happy and look forward to running nice new clean fluids through my new rig in time for winter


EDIT: i also wanna add that the local stealerships quoted me $230 just for an oil change, so im getting a hell of alot more done for cheaper, but i gotta buy the transfer case oil from the dealership but thats only $45 or so

I try to go wheeling as much as possible. As for Golden, I used to work there and I never found anything.. But I do know of some pretty mellow spots up behind central city.. I've only got a BB lift right now, and mine does great up there!

I finished my $15 custom roof rack cross bars for the WK today. Thanks to Sal-XK possibly others for the idea. I bought a 10ft piece of Unistrut to make two 5 ft bars and fabricated rail clamps from spare parts around the garage. The 5 ft width and the readily available Unistrut clamps will make it real versitile.

Here's the video: http://youtu.be/wchPkC-skcY

Now I must say I'm pretty embarrassed.

.95 Reaction time -.-

For anyone who was wondering why I'm so slow here's a data log I took from my brain:

"okay so wait wtf do these yellow lights mean? Oh **** there's more? Green? Oh it's green! Go frank go it's green!!!!!"


FYI I also had it in Auto-stick (bad choice) and I didn't power brake or whatever it's called so I could have been a lot faster if someone else was driving lmao.

Time was 16.9 @ 79.17mph
He got a 16.45 @ 83mph

Anyways, JC you should paint the chrome window strip black. It would look awesome with black wheels and all black accents. Thats how mine is.

I left that one chrome to accent the center caps and lugs.. When I get tires (hopefully soon) I'll buy some black lugs and black out the center cap. I'll do that chrome strip too.

As for plastidipping it, I did all of it on the Jeep, minus the grill. Very minor taping too. The plastidip peels right off the paint, doesn't leave a residue or anything.. Here's what I mean

Overspray:


After about 2 minutes of peeling:
