Re: Oil filter leak 4.7 HO

I used K&N oil filters on mine the entire time I owned it...I thought I had the same issue. Turned out it was a front timing cover leak. It was barely there, but enough to lay a drop or two of oil...

Re: Have a Jeep in the garage again

I've not heard many complaints at all about these vehicles when it comes to daily driver dependability. I have to imagine it's one of the most written about vehicle in the world of forums, so if you...

Re: Thinking about ordering a JKU, question?

Can't help you on the rubbing...but those are some good-looking wheels you chose.

As for diameter, I like the larger wheel personally. You've got plenty of sidewall either way. If you're a...

Looks great! Do those loops on either end come off? Looks like there are bolts near the seam.

Re: New grille and hood catches

Re: Bestop under-seat security boxes

Well, you don't HAVE to have an impact...I went most of my life without one and survived with a large 1/2" ratchet. It just makes life a lot easier.:thumbsup:
