Me either... I read a couple reviews of people complaining that the sticky part of the velcro would slide back but I figured I'd give it a try
I'd send it back but its not worth it for me to pay shipping, I'll just chalk it up as a loss of $30

I just replaced that strip with some industrial stick-on velcro from lowes and haven't had a problem since with my bestop headliner. The problem is the glue on the bestop headliner strip basically liquifies and looses it's elasticity under heat. It didn't last more than a few days before I had to take the top apart to fix it.

I'm gonna have to try that. Mine went south in the Texas heat in one day. Loved it for that day though lol. Got a brand that you used for that strip?

That's what I think I'm going to try.

Finished late last night. Had a bad leak for the passenger rear wheel seal, so I decided to do both bearings and seals while I had it apart. Not a difficult job with the right tools.

Got my Jeep back after a friend having it for a week to change the RMS. he changed it once and it still leaked, then pulled it back out and put in another one that wasn't faulty. Now leak free!banana:

I started a thread, but figured I'd ask here as well. What is the torque spec for the ring gear bolts in the D30? I'm in the middle of my LockRight install and need help ASAP

I believe it's 55 ft/lbs


EDIT: I change my vote to 80 ft/lb. I used this write up when I installed my Aussie and did 80.

That's what I've read, but then I've also read people doing 80.
