I think you got that backwards. Spin the tire one rotation and count how many times the yoke turns. If the yoke goes just past 4 revolutions, you've got 4.10s.
If you turn a wheel the yoke may not turn due to FAD if it's disconnected. Or the other wheel may turn backwards due to diff.

Putting a bolt in the yoke and a breaker bar and turning that is less likely to get you a wrong count.

First oil change. I do enjoy having a filter on top of the motor.

Ordered another Led Strip light from Diamondback covers. Super easy install. Bright and reliable. Had one in my truck bed. Adding it to rear cargo area just under the very back of the roof. I know I could have gone Brawlee but I had one of those on my JLUS and it failed, rattled over time and it’s not compatible with JLUR 21. The DB light is me proof. Yes it runs on batteries but they last forever and I have spares.

To answer your question for @SoCal …yes that’s exactly what it’s for.
I have the LANGE power hoist …..and the device to pull up from the back (window as you mentioned) wasn’t the greatest IMO…so I purchased this from topsy products, which comes as a kit also to be used with your Lange set up if you have it.
These hooks are much better and work great 👍
Are these used for a ceiling harness so you don't have to keep the back window open when suspending? What are these called? And where did you find these?
What are they for?
brackets for the hard top hoist to make it easier to strap it up and you can leave back window down also... by topsy products

Took Jeep in for second coat of my ZAKTEK Sealant application. It's not as good as ceramic coating but its always kept my Ram's very nice. I like the interior application too for it keeps fabric protected and very easy to clean. Since I am a loyalty customer I get my 5 year coverage plan free so its worth using it.

Nice Jelly, :swear:been looking at those lights. Are they the 2" or 3" ones and how hard are they to run to battery? Newbie still here. :like::swear:

Installed a Preece Precision 15lb CO2 tank. Not sure if I like where it's mounted, but it'll work for now.

Question, where would you get the tank filled up? Would it not take very high pressure to fill?
Have read about these over putting compressor in the Jeep. How many times will that air 35's up from 16 PSI?

They are the 3” cube spot lights. Super simple to wire up especially if you have auxiliary switches. If not , still real easy, I can walk you through it.

I just looked at the Website, Be nice to use. How do you plan on mounting it?

On vertical edge at back of rear roof - behind rear glass hinges mounted horizontally.
I’ll take a pic once I get it - coming later today.

No switches. I have looked at some simple mounting brackets online. These go right on Cowl. Hold one cube light. Not sure I need 2 cube lights.

I have a Collins Brother by me who make Black Mountain Jeeps. Was looking at this Black Mountain stubby bumper. OE fog lights work with it. Only thing about it is a winch placed on it kind of covers grill a lot taking away what I would assume air flow. Any thoughts about it?

I got mined filled at a welding/industrial gas place. Normal welding supply stores will only do tank exchanges, you have to find a place which has a CO2 plant if you want to keep your own tank. Some people piece together their own kits, to include a normal aluminum tank from a welding supply store, so they can just do tank exchanges without worrying about turning in their expensive powder coated tank. If you live in an area where there's no CO2 gas plant, this would be the best option.

The CO2 tanks do supply more cfm over a compressor, which makes them great for re-seating tire beads. Compressors are good for airing up tires, but don't have the cfm for other uses, unless you have a decent sized air tank installed somewhere on your jeep. The drawback to CO2 tanks are the limited amount of CO2 you have, properly securing/storing the tank in the jeep, and the possibility of the regulator freezing (this can be mitigated by getting a high quality regulator and using the tank correctly).

According to the chart I got from Preece, a 10lb tank can fill a 35x12.50R15 tire from 10 psi to 35 psi in 88 seconds and can do this 13 times. A 15lb tank could do this roughly 19-20 times as it has 50% more capacity.

I didn't get the tank for primarily airing up tires as I have a compressor for that, although I plan on using it this weekend to time how long it takes to air up my 37x12.50R17 tires from 15 to 37 psi.
