  2. Rocks caught in crevice of fender flares

    I ordered the hollow tubing per the video and didn't like it at all. In some places it formed an '0' shaped cross-section, others a "V" cross-section, and in some a "W" cross-section. It looked sloppy no matter how much I tried. I feel like solid material might be the way to go. Here goes the...

    You too, friend!
  4. Best method to hang JL doors in garage?

    Are those Mopar tube doors? They look good! What’s your mirror solution? I already have the CMM mirrors and think the Mopar doors are mirrorless. Right? I think I might add Arc hangers for the real doors, and keep the Off-Road Concepts hangers for the tube door storage. I have the wall space.
  5. What does everybody do for a living?

    I’m a Strategy & Operations consultant, or as my daughter says, “My daddy is a doctor for companies.” I used to work in NASA mission control as a “pilot” for the International Space Station. I’d dock the ISS with the Space Shuttle, Russian Progress and Soyuz vehicles, fly out of the way of...
  6. Best method to hang JL doors in garage?

    I installed the Off-Road Concepts hangers today. I wanted hinge-mounted hangers in case I decide to add tube doors at some point. My first impressions are neutral, but I hope I grow to like them. Some thoughts: The hangers’ long edge are perfectly vertical, but the doors don’t appear perfectly...

  8. Hardtop damage

    Remove any pieces of fiberglass that are frayed or splintered. Clean the hole with rubbing alcohol, then fill it with 5 minute epoxy. It may ooze our due to gravity so you might want to use multiple applications of epoxy. You’ll want to build a little mound of epoxy that is higher than the...

    Did you crack the plastic where the filter goes in?
  10. Racor Hoist System

    Nearly done. As mentioned previously, I was using 78” 2x4s to span 4 joists and give me enough room on the ends. While installing the last lag bolt the the end of the 2x4 split. Ugh. I was tempted to just call it good, but OCD would cause me to think about it every time I went into the garage...
  11. Best method to hang JL doors in garage?

    I ordered my Off-Road Concepts door hangers on 4/11 and they arrived today, 4/16, having traveled from Florida to Colorado. I had a shipping notification within 24 hours of ordering.
  12. Seeking guidance for installing Racor hoist

    We’re all figuring this out together. I read your post and smiled as I’m going through a similar predicament. I’m 1/2 way done with my install, mostly because I’m installing it in a really high garage, with joists that run the wrong way, and centering requires 2x4s. My story, so far, is here. A...
  13. Go old skool or go new with a Wrangler?

    As a weekend toy and occasional daily, I don’t think you can beat a TJ; cheap, iconic, and perfectly proportioned for sportiness. If you asked about a daily and ever need to transport people or stuff, I’d steer you towards a JL. I had a 2 door JK Willys that I loved, but the JL manual...
  14. DIY Centerforce flywheel and clutch install

    My guess is that the dealer will say ‘no’, but wouldn’t it be nice if FCA OK’d this aftermarket solution like they did with the Fox steering stabilizers!?
  15. When does production start again?

    Raring to go by Easter!
  16. Aftermarket Clutch Options?

    Seems they do. I haven’t heard of them. What’s so good about their clutches?
  17. Racor Hoist System

    Work in progress, and so far, so good. I’m spanning 4 joists with a 2x4, and anchoring to each using 8 3/8 x 6 lag screws and appropriately sized washers. I drilled the pilot holes for the hoist and the joists in the 2x4s on the floor, then used a long bit through the 2x4 pilot holes to drill...

    Sorry to hear that. I got mine <48 hours after ordering.
