I'd have to know the dimensions the infinity sail mounts give you to work with to supply much better advice.

Plus, good tweets and crossover components aren't cheap. If you're happy there's no imperative to change anything.
I always come back to this but I dont need a system that makes the glass do a wave. I would like to fit a sub under the rear seat and have clear audio when I turn up the volume. Before I do that, I think I need new weather stripping to eliminate all of my road noise.

Rear seat is TIGHT in an XJ for a sub. I can think of a few that would work but they're small. Cubby, built into a floor box or built into the spare tire would be easier to manage a good air space and sub size with.

Finally got around to dismantling the factory running boards I picked up awhile back delivered for $75 and a case of Bud Light from about 300 miles away. The plan at the time was to try and take them apart, give the plastic to my body guy, they are green my Jeep is black, and POR 15 all the metal. Usually the metal is rusted to [email protected]#t but these are pristine and would like to keep them that way. Since the purchase I have been reading a lot about Monstaliner. Wondering if this might be the way to go. Both plastic and/or the metal parts. The working theory in my head for doing this is I can touch up the Monstaliner from time to time on the plastic pieces if necessary. Anybody please feel free to chime in with opinions or ideas.


EDIT: So I started washing down the running boards and noticed inside the small sections that attach to the fender flares that it is not all painted in there and some of the green paint is peeling off. Exposing a black plastic similar to not painted to match the vehicle black bumper caps. Thinking if I could get all the paint off I might like them just like that. Googling around about removing paint from plastic seems to deal more with overspray and not factory applied paint. Some suggested brake cleaner but then it appears that with ABS plastic there could be a problem. No idea what kind of plastic this is. Any ideas on this?

So while running board parts were drying figured I would play with one of the map pocket door panels. Picked one were a couple of those plastic welds were broken already and chipped away with a pair of dykes until enough was removed to pull it through. Been thinking of buying a Dremel Tool and was thinking it would probably be nice to have it now. Anyway figured I would post a couple shots. There is more surface area then I thought there would be to double sided tape them to my door panels. With a Dremel Tool I could probably save all the cylinders (see the second picture), assuming none are broken in the first place, drill holes in my door panel, and screw them in. Thing is I have commitment issues. Hence the double sided tape. Just grind down all those little cylinders, some 3M Adhesion Promoter (already bought some), and attach.

Build Thread, post 175

Slow day at work, so I attempted to install my Ironman Fab steering brace.

Note the word "attempted".

Started out fine, first I ditched the OE spacer. Built this to replace it.



After bolting the steering box back up it was time to mount the brace. This is when the fun began.

To start, the brace is longer than the outer surfaces of the frame rails. As my bumper mount plates hang down about 1/4" I had to trim the brace to fit. This trim allowed me to put the brace in place, and see what I'd suspected, the bolt holes were not spaced correctly. I had to slot the holes in the passenger end.



No pictures of the following fiasco, I ended up having to oversize the holes in the driver's side also. Then the sector shaft bearing wouldn't mount up. Followed manufacturers instructions & used a pry bar to align & finally got everything together & tight.

My elation was short lived, the first time I went lock to lock I heard a snap or bang, thought maybe a bolt had broken.

That would have been nice, instead it was the bearing housing, broke the ear off the flange mount.

In looking for a replacement I realized the maker had drilled the cast iron flange to allow larger bolts to be used. This weakened it enough that under the load/bind it could break.

We have Certanium welding rod on site, so I ground a generous relief & welded the flange ear back on. This of course did nothing to address the weak flange ear, so I then wrapped the bearing flange with a piece of 1/2" x 1/4" flatbar. This was welded with 309 stainless (for dissimilar metals) and then ground flat & cleaned up somewhat before a quick coat of paint.







This entire process burned enough day that I didn't really have enough time left to address the fitment issues that created the bind. I'll have to try again another day.

Had I bought the brace from Ironman, rather than second-hand (new, never installed) from another Jeepforum member, I'd probably have stopped once I knew it wasn't going to fit correctly & called them to see what they had to say. As it is, I'm going to make it work.

It's an inanimate object, I will make it conform to my wishes, it's just that this one is putting up a fight.
