Re: Talk about ANYTHING WK thread.

I was looking for this stuff called "Bestop" to clean/protect my soft top. I looked online, and there was a place right in Roswell (where I work, and the next town over from where I live). For some reason, I thought it was a boat store. In my wildest dreams I NEVER expected to find what it actually was, and it's right in my backyard!! (Lol.. Pardon the dramatic lead-in. It was prolly a better story told in person. When I talk, I tend to get really animated...).

Www fortec com (don't wanna give the shameless free plug). It was like the "Sports Authority" or Santa's workshop for Wranglers!!!!! Instant divorce! Geez, I'm tellin' ya, they have EVERYTHING you need! I got one of their catalogs. It's half an inch thick!!! I spent the rest of the afternoon just looking at, circling stuff and dog-earing pages (don't tell my boss!)! For $7,000 I could get the Hemi conversion kit. The only drawback is that I wouldn't be able to pay for a divorce lawyer, and my wife would get it and wouldn't even know how freakin cool it was!

Does anybody know a part number for the rubber seal for the front door? I've looked but cannot seem to find one...somebody ripped mine up pretty good while exiting the truck.

I still don't know what the difference between those and the ones I have (g1's) are. Tread pattern is the same and all the ratings are the same...

Re: Talk about ANYTHING WK thread.

Yea man the guy said he had them in his garage for awhile. Got replacements from the dealer because someone tried to steal the caps and left scratches. Going to powder them black since I got such a good price. As far as rubber and $$$ 😟.. recouping from Xmas and my daughters bday is jan 10. So after all that's said and done I'm getting what works best. $190-$250 max each range. Def looking at nittos. Going to be my summer a/t's. What size can I run. I know I keep asking this lol but I'd rather not cut anything. And Im going to be running a two inch rc lift. I know I will need spacers.

Its a tread wear rating. Example. The nitto 420's had a wear rating of 420. The government's standard is 100. The gmax's i got have a rating of like 490. Generally higher ratings have a harder compound to them. Its a resistance to wear rating.
