Re: Some new pictures...

Regardless of the quality of Jeep's and Ford's, It's obvious that the European and some of the Asian car manufacturers still build superior vehicles.

It's a damn shame, that with outsourcing

My parents bought a 06 F-150 and the first thing I did was change the spark plugs for them to 1 piece plugs (then you don't have problems). If that hasn't been done, an impact will take them out just fine w/out issues.

I would say that Jeeps don't have shit on the Fords. Not starting a brand war here, just being realistic. I had a 04 Mustang and my parents have the 06 F150. The only work ever done on those was simple oil changes. The same is FAR FAR from true w/ my Jeep.

Jeeps are known to have problems. Literally everyone I talked to before buying my Jeep told me about the issues that Jeeps have and how there's always something to fix. They were right, but I wouldn't trade my Jeep for any other vehicle.

I said that the same way I said to all the Packers fans last week that their Packers ain't got shit on my NY Giants. We all know the Packers are an amazing team, and that the Giants have the tendancy to "break down" more, but when you're a true fan, you're a true fan...and other than the new Mustang and maybe the Raptor truck, there isn't a Ford out there I'd trade a Jeep for. That's just me though.

I think my buddy's got an 04, but I could be mistaken. He priced out having it done and it came back at some incredibly expensive $$, and that's the explanation that was given. Other than that, and some regular maintenance issues (brakes, front bearings), he's been happy with his F-150. You won't catch me in one though.

1. first i removed the bumpers off the Jeep.
2. wash them really good!
3. dry them, and clean them with wax and tar remover
4. once cleaned really good, spray few coats of adhesion promoter.
5. once dry i used Duplicolor paint for plastic bumpers-black..
6. a few coats of that with plenty of dry time
7. follow it up with some clear coat and let sit for a day or two and install.

-an easier way i wish i had gone was just done all the cleaning steps and painted them with truck bed coating so i didnt have to clear coat them...
-word of advise, make sure you do this in the summer time so its warm... just a heads up

My buddy has an 04 I think and they are known to fuse the spark plugs to the blocks making a simple tune up just about impossible. Not to mention the plugs themselves are stupid expensive. Just a heads up in case you're in the market...

Thank you Tony. Also thanks for the heads up, i have heard about spark plug problems.. my girlfriends dads '02 f-150 has 250k miles and runs great! regular maintainence and 2 trans rebuilds but original 5.4 v8. im going to hold off a couple years and get a new ecoboost or Raptor... im hoping they will join them together. i have a 1/4 saved already for a brand new one

Are you rubbing when it's flexed out? Or on full lock when you're turning? Do you know where it's rubbing?

Yes they rub when flexing. Basically on the front bumper but I have done no trimming yet.. at full lock on flat ground no rubbing. They clear the control arms and clear the bumper by like half an inch lol. But like I said I need to do some trimming. I love these rims and tires tho...
