    Texas Buchanan machine 1.5 seat risers

    Should work great for someone around 6 ft and under. I'm 6'2 and the 1" kit worked well for me with the 2005 seats.

    Improving the cooling on our TJs

    Took me a bit to find this, but I got a hex plug out once using a friend's old extractor set just like this. I don't know if it will work for a square plug, but it worked for a rounded-off plug (and you could easily make it more "roundy"). I may buy a set like this as well. Match the extractor...

    Nice! The dropper w/ needle works great me me too. The stuff is too awesome to waste. :)

    Improving the cooling on our TJs

    I originally saw folks praising how it worked for decades on aircraft engines and exhaust items. I bought some to lubricate my turbo's waste-gate linkage and the binding issue hasn't come back. I use it mostly as a penetrating oil, but it's supposed to be a good cutting fluid as well. I put...

    Badlands off road jack $249.99

    Stop breaking shit or get better at fixing things!! 😬 🤭 An older dude, in a dog walking group, told me that his AC guy has been fixing his unit for 20 years. I said, "Why don't you tell him to do it right, so he doesn't have to keep coming back." lol his friends liked that one.

    Badlands off road jack $249.99

    That jack worked great for me. I gave it to a friend when I moved to L.A. and didn't have a place for most of my things.

    Improving the cooling on our TJs

    Just used some mouse milk on a seized fitting yesterday. It holds up well in higher-temp situations (should work well on engine block plugs).

    Is this a reasonable price for re-gearing?

    I'd like to think that a US version would be available if it was necessary. Sounds like you are in good hands.

    You nailed it your first time without any growing pains?

    Is this a reasonable price for re-gearing?

    I was thinking 3-4 times maybe more.

    What size seat riser?

    I went with Buchanan for their blocks and strong fasteners. And bc they seem like really nice ppl putting out good product. I’m 6’2 and went with the 1” and it was perfect. I removed mine after adding the PRP seats since they add almost and inch. I installed one set into my ex’s driver seat...

    Continuous P0306 problem

    You can save yourself some dough if you do that job yourself, but I understand if you aren't up for it. Just don't want you do burn all of your money at the shop.

    Is this a reasonable price for re-gearing?

    Does R&G offer their US rear axles for the S35 kit? If so, I'd get the US made version instead of the Discovery if you can afford the additional cost.

    Badlands off road jack $249.99

    I was just trying to make a funny, but I probably would rather just get the Badland's Jack unless I had extra jacks laying around. Depends on our situations and needs for that stuff.

    Badlands off road jack $249.99

    The 12-tons are really nice to have. I didn't mind the price when buying right after the incident. Funny how priorities shift. It is pretty big, I went in thinking I might get another normal floor jack since I noticed they are also on sale. But, this one works well for my needs. It's not for...

    Continuous P0306 problem

    I learned that lesson when fixing F-14 Tomcats. Yea, I'd at least check compression. You might have a new engine that needs fixed. This. We hope it's not your engine, but don't be afraid or too proud to check. Your goal is to locate and fix the issue, not have it be what you want it to be.
