  1. What do we think, northern Jeepers, is it Hardtop Time?

    Western suburbs of Chicago here... soft top is now in the 'up' position, and will go back 'down' as soon as a 48 hour or more stretch of warmer temps arrives. Same with doors. Hard top does not go on until the threat of snow hits (I don't want that weight on top of my soft top).
  2. Doors without the bolts

    My friend that is frickin' amazing! And as a fellow Sting Grey owner I'm even more in love.
  3. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    You really know how to break a guy's heart... I was hoping for an easy-to-install alternative to the Oracle lights (which apparently also have moisture issues) but I'm not handy in the way you are to make those spacers and bezels. Really great job though...
  4. Doors without the bolts

    🤔 LineX'd the hinge... got a picture? Did you just do the hinge on the door, the side connected to the body, or both?
  5. What side steps / rock rails to add to JL Wrangler?

    Congrats… nice job. Only two things I don't care for with these; 1) they don’t operate when doors are off and 2) the price - but that goes for everything I want to add to my Jeep!
  6. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    It seems the best solution is for me to buy two more Jeeps. I’ll put a Fumoto in one, a Valvomax on the other and a Femco on the third. I’ll love them all, and will be the envy of everyone on the Forum. 😛 Thanks all for the feedback!
  7. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    I would have never thought of using the engine compartment for storage of anything. Very creative. All good feedback on this forum... I'm still torn, but guess $26.78 for Fumoto (short) vs $49.99 for Valvomax might help me decide.
  8. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    Won't that loop eye get in the way?
  9. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    What do the experts think about this gun magnet to hold the metal filings at the bottom of the oil pan? It seems most of them only have rubber covers that stay on with screws, but that would play will on an oil pan, and I don't want to lose the cover.
  10. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    Thanks... do you happen to have a link to that rubberized magnet? I'm not seeing one quite like that on Amazon even with Google Lens. Edit: are these considered gun magnet mounts?
  11. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    So... you daily drive with this magnet on your oil pan, or just apply it around the time you are doing your oil change? Sorry, I wasn't clear reading what you wrote - but I'm mostly an idiot. :-)
  12. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    A whole quart seems like a lot more than they would really hold back... I could see a couple ounces, but I admit I never thought of that. Nor the flushing out of wear/tear debris.
  13. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    The " between the battery and fender..." Never heard of that. Do you zip tie it in or trust it won't wall out?
  14. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    Ooooh… thanks. I never thought about flow rate. I’ll need to add that to my comparison or the two (if there is data on that).
  15. Fumoto vs Valvomax Oil Plug

    I'm looking at doing oil change #2 in a couple months, so wanted to decide now on which plug brand I'm going to go. I know this isn't a choice that costs a lot, but I'd like to land on one and just stick with it. The forum search seems to show more chatter about Fumoto, I like the "idea" of...
  16. Putco Blade LED Tailgate Light

    Thanks. Interesting... I just found that thread on the issue. I do have a plastic rear bumper, so fitment should be less of an issue than it is for the steel bumper... but the water/moisture is concerning. I wonder if they corrected that. I see Oracle warrantied the product, but the hassle...
  17. Putco Blade LED Tailgate Light

    Thanks @AFD... welp, looks like I'm back to these as my best option.
  18. Putco Blade LED Tailgate Light

    I want to hate this... but this may be just what I need for brighter reverse lights. All the other features are just icing on the cake. I was planning on going with the ORACLE Lighting Rear Bumper LED Reverse Lights... but that requires the removal of the whole bumper to install. This looks...
  19. Duck Duck Jeep: Featuring World’s Largest Duck and Free Rubber Ducks at the Detroit Auto Show

    I was ambivalent about ducking, but got ducked for the first time this week while in a Harbor Freight and I must admit - it made my day.
  20. Softtop Question

    Wow... great answer. Thank you, and the devil in in the details; so I see your self ascribed rambling as super helpful. Any reccos on a good brand of microfiber towel? I swear the ones I have leave more lint (or what appears to be lint) behind than a regular towel. I don't wash them with...
