Re: Ripped seat replacement. What else fits ?

Not to be a party pooper, but you would NEED to find a stupidly good deal for the Katskins to be worth it. For a used WK with significant mileage it's almost more sensible to buy a new car than drop...

Re: 2005 WK Limited Vs 2006 Overland Vs 2008 Limited

I know you're not asking about them, but did you think about a WJ at all? The only reason I'm asking is because I had a WJ for a looooong time and loved it. About two-ish years ago I upgraded to a...

Re: Should I be concerned about this much rust?

Sounds like a lot of work for something that, in my opinion, will never cause much of a problem. You're going to have other major issues before anything rusts to the point of failure back there. ...

Re: First Time lift/bigger tires...help!

I'm not an expert on this, but I can see you're getting impatient so I'll try to clarify a thing or two.

The stock wheels will fit the 265-70-17s. As far as I'm aware it's getting close to the...

Re: Upper Control Arms from Rocky Road Outfitters

So how are they riding? Did your old ball joints NEED replaced, or did you just want to upgrade things in general?

Re: Accel/Rough Road Knocking in Rear

It rained all day here today and the sound went away, so it's gonna be one of those come and go types of things. We'll see if it returns when things dry out.

Re: ome lift and new a arms

It's sitting on stock 245/65/17 I THINK. Tough to rustle up funds for tires and lift at the same time. I'm definitely picking up some new rubber, but probably not until late summer/early fall in a...

Accel/Rough Road Knocking in Rear

So I've been working on tracking down a horrendous noise coming from underneath my 05 4.7. It was originally difficult to explain because it was random but it's become more frequent.

Re: ome lift and new a arms

Re: Upper Control Arms from Rocky Road Outfitters

Are the Rocky Road UCAs ride height specific for lifted, lowered, or stock rides? Or just a one size fits all idea?

Re: 4.7l mpg

I'm around 18-19 highway and somewhere in the 13-14 city range. PA/WV roads can be pretty twisted and hilly but anything even close to the 22 range seems pretty impressive to me.

Re: Transmission Overheated?

You're absolutely right, there is potential for failure of the lines but the 11/32 ID is very tight on the old tubing and the hose clamps are added protection. The hose is rated for 20-30 lbs of...
