Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Haha! Nice one

I have been meaning to put this guy on so my antenna and mount stops taking such a beating, but lets face it, I have been a little busy.

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Nope, it doesn't work with the SL. I could cut it in half and still use some of it, but I would rather sell it and make my own.

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Thanks for the quick response! Is the Graphite the same paint that you used on your wheels? They look very similar. Also what kind of clear coat do you use? I have never clear coated with a spray before, any input would be appreciated. Thanks


Also started looking at exhaust's, and lifts. I read that you have gone through two different ones so far. I would like something that has a nice sound but not too loud. Used to have a Flowmaster 40 in my Durango. Something a little less loud would be good. Which one did you like better?

Lift: Looking at Rock Krawler 3.5" lift?

When I installed the SL I realized just how much the turning radius sucked with it. So today I got around to doing something about it. I planned to trim the stops and decided to grind the lower arms since they would be cheaper to replace if need be. Before trimming I only had one complete turn of the steering wheel from center to lock. Now I have just over 1 1/4" turns with out the 35" tires hitting the frame.

Before:




After:




I removed a 1/4" from the stop. I could go a little more, but I want to see how this works for the time being. Even a little bit will help drivability. I don't know how everyone else with the SL has been able to stand it, especially those with smaller tires!

I am hoping to sell it for $300 to someone local. I have a couple possible takers on the rails so maybe they will want the skid too.

Chaase68 I will have to get to those questions tomorrow!
