Installed new metal cloak bumper, rewound the cable in the winch. Looks much better.

Have you uses a lubelocker before? Im curious to see if they really install easily with no leaks. Im thinking about getting a lubelocker pan gasket for my 32rh. I need to do a driveway flush and filter, and I have the worst luck when it comes to getting a pan gasket to not leak after I mess with it. All of the leaks I had weren't really from install error, but it's happened enough to make me paranoid. Also thought about getting the guys to use them when I regear. It will be less hassle when I do my break in drain and fill

I have not used one yet, I figured if this goes well I'll run them front and rear. I just know I hate scraping RTV so it's worth a shot.

This is the kit:

Check Corporation Seat Heaters
http://www.quadratec.com/products/14159_101.htm

It seems to be a universal kit that is technically plug-and-play. It plugs into the back of the cigarette lighter. I love the seat heaters, but my only gripe is that the cables are so long that I really considered cutting and shortening them up. I rolled the cables up and put them with the control box just to the left of the glove box behind the dash.

Also, the kit does not include new hog rings to re-install the upholstery. I bought hog ring pliers from Harbor Freight and after checking with everyone else found some hog rings at Carquest. I ended up buying a step bit from Harbor Freight to drill the holes for the switches. The instructions say to use a 51/64 bit, which just so happens not to be in my bit case.

All-in-all I love having heated seats again, and I now know more about my jeep (since I had to disassemble both front seats). Also, it gave me an excuse to buy more tools, which is always good.

I used a lubelocker when I installed my LockRight up front. So far no leaks or anything, and its much cleaner than RTV.

I've always hated cleaning of new rtv, and hate making gaskets with it even more. Somehow they usually leak just enough to aggravate you, but not to the point to justify redoing it. During undercarriage paint prep, I notice mine has some gray type sealant gooped everywhere. It feels slight harder then regular orange rtv(which I have some traces of that too lol). Its not even worth my time to try to redo it. It will be just fine until tax time when I regear. I figured if I get the shop to put some lube lockers on, I will be less likely to get overdue on the break in drain/fill. Even if im unlucky enough to not be able to reuse them, they will worth the extra money for convenience. I'd rather drink my beer doing anything other then scraping rtv.

Tyvanwie, do u notice the lock right up front during street driving? The shop doing my gears said there wouldn't charge extra labor to install one since i need new carriers. My only experience with lockers were all with either cad axles or had lockouts

Replaced the turn signal switch. Was an easy fix, shoulda done it earlier. I first lost the hazards months ago, then later the turns started to quit working sometimes. They finally quit completely, and my brake lights quit working. I started searching threads here about the brake light issue and stumbled on a few talking about brake light issues traced to the turn signal switch. I would have never thought they were connected, but with my previous issues it had to be related. O'riellys had a switch in stock for about $40, and it works perfect now. This forum is such a great source of info, thanks to everyone who posts any kind of write-up. No matter how small a job may seem, you will help someone.

Not at all. I don't hear clicking or anything. Still waiting to see how it is in the snow though.

What's snow? Lol, I won't have to worry about that part. The only time my Jeep has seen snow was the end of last Feb while visiting family up close to Troutman NC. Wasn't much, 5-6" or so. Im more worried about strange noises or parking spot jerking(like a rear locker) when my wife is driving. Listening to her try to explain a weird noise/new feeling would have me constantly looking for something wrong. I spent 2 weeks trying to duplicate a rear clanking sound. It ended up being the d-rings on the rear bumper. I knew the noise was there the whole time. It was new to her(womenfolk just get in and drive, most don't notice noises.) It was a big pita, especially when she said it sounded like something was about to fall off.

Nope, feels/sounds the same as without it.
