  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has "been there, done that". I got lucky and found a stick long enough to fish the keys from the ignition when I locked them in. My '86 K30 on the other hand.....hell I've been thru that rear window a whole bunch!
  2. Why's that? Raptor isn't terribly UV stable from the one time I used it. Good product, and great for a cheap bedliner but for appearances I don't know if I would use it on a whole vehicle. A bondo-eater will remove it easily enough if it's anything like Raptorliner. I haven't removed Monstaliner yet but Raptor does come off with some 40 grit and my big DA (gear-driven).
  3. I like that a lot. 6.5" lift....did you have to use spacers/adapters for the lug pattern?
  4. Very interesting discussion, but I am lost as to what the issue is here? Is it that your triple fan setup is crap? I've got a 137A ZJ alternator in my '92....only because I've got a big ol' amp and 2 10" subs behind the seat. Did I actually NEED it? Prolly not. But I don't ever have issues with my charging circuit, even at idle. My plan is to put in a winch up front and hopefully this should be able to keep up with that over intermittent use.
  5. And this is for a 16" rim if you're using a later model rim....a LOT more options
  6. As of today this is what BFG has for the K02 in a 15" rim:
  7. This should be it if you want new: https://www.amazon.com/Painless-30001-ATO-Fuse-Center/dp/B00062Z5YI/ref=asc_df_B00062Z5YI/?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=&hvpos=&hvnetw=o&hvrand=&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584413735837516&psc=1
  8. I've got 265/75 R16s on a set of TJ Rubicon take offs on a 4-4.5" lift (not sure exactly what it used to be but it's about 4" now). Rubs at full lock to the right if I remember correctly. I took them off for the 31x10.5 on 15s because I was constantly rubbing going in/out of parking lots. Edit: I did have to run a spacer/adapter to correct the bolt pattern. I ran the thinnest one I could find, I think it was 1.25" IIRC.
  9. You'll definitely have to make sure you don't get it all over everything. Silicone doesn't harden so it works very well in vibration-prone environments. The Oracle stuff is silicone based, not sure what exactly differentiates it from regular black RTV, but it comes with the same precautions (protect any surfaces to be coated later on).
  10. Or use a clear silicone sealant. Water-proof, clear, and holds up up UV very well.
  11. Yup. Put an aluminum can in the bed and drive on the highway, you'll see it travel "up" the bed jump into the air once it gets to the cab and then hit the tailgate....well until you go fast enough to where it goes over the tailgate. As far as keeping your tailgate, this is a great idea if you don't have a camper shell to keep it in place. I remove my tailgate at least once or twice a week to load/unload stuff (been moving a lot of appliances for the new house lately) and prevent it from getting damaged.
  12. What year XJ is that console out of?
  13. Might not. I've a 92 so H.O., not Renix.
  14. 100% rubber bushings if you want comfort. Heims will transmit any shock/vibration straight into the rest of the vehicle. Replace everything though...all that rubber is 30+ years old at this point and is likely hardened or completely shot. For the Bilsteins, I'd highly suggest getting your jeep weighed when loaded down and then calling either Bilstein directly or if you can look up a custom suspension shop and see if they can help you out. A lot of times just giving a phone call and talking with them will help you figure out if those shocks will work for what you want. Just because
