    Got into it with a state cop

    The level of stupidity in blue here in Hawaii is so wide spread I now carry a copy of the motor vehicle laws pertaining to the non-requirement of doors and mirrors! I now great all of them as Barney. "good morning Barney", "good evening Barney" most are clueless of the reference. It continues...

    Snowblower Questions

    Back in the day, before I relocated to warmer climates I owned tractor mounted and walk behind. Overall I'd say go with a walk behind, rubber tire with chains. Much easier to hump around the driveway! Easier to move around in the garage in the off season. Unless you have lots and lots of...

    Are all hood louvers equal?

    My 2 cents! While still living in South Florida I installed the Poison Spider vented louver. Cut the hood vents as well as counter sunk all the screw holes to make a cleaner install. I can say that there was a noticeable reduction of heat radiating through the floor, as it was now able to vent...

    I messed up installing limb risers, please help

    Remove what you have installed, install some rivnuts with maybe a #10 thread, counter sink the outside of the bracket and install some nice counter sunk stainless screws. Then tell everyone that was your intention, better then the factory install...............That's how we learn!!

    What are your favorite interior upgrades / mods?

    That looks like a really nice set up, but here on Oahu, running door-less some Hobo would have that mounted on his shopping cart in no time!!!

    What are your favorite interior upgrades / mods?

    Purchased a commercial sewing machine, taught myself to sew. Stitched new seat covers, winch cover, soft top and roll bar covers. With the Covid shut down, I had lots of time!! I've always liked the classic diamond pattern.

    Mirror laws for all 50 states

    If I recall, at some point in PA traffic court, is was stated that since Jeep designs the door to be removed for normal operation that the court agreed that is was "manufactured" to have no side. The Judge agreed, ticket dismissed. Precedent set!

    Mirror laws for all 50 states

    Can you find that requirement in the motor vehicle laws in PA and post it? Seams an odd requirement as what would the law say about motor cycles? I have been stopped here in Hawaii a few times for being door-less (2 years no doors), each time po po was all up in my grille for no doors. Each...

    SOLD 2005 LJ Rubicon Sahara

    Agreed, sweet looking ride! but looking close at some of the photos, do a very good look for frame rust. The photos show someone has spent a lot of time cleaning and spray painting the under carriage of the vehicle. Some of the hardware and components show A LOT of corrosion ( look at the...

    Loud squeak / chirping noise (not a belt or pulley issue)

    I have not experienced any negative results with the sea foam. I use it in both the oil and fuel systems. As stated, I only run it in the oil system for about 300 miles, every 3000 miles. What prompted my use in the oil system was a fluctuation in oil pressure at idle. The pressure would drop...

    Loud squeak / chirping noise (not a belt or pulley issue)

    Something I do every few thousand miles is to pour in a bottle of sea foam into the oil and run for about 300 miles prior to oil change. I helps to remove carbon and other deposits in the oil system. Have you inspected the cam lobe for any scoring?

    Loud squeak / chirping noise (not a belt or pulley issue)

    What you are describing is exactly where I was getting the sound, I was thinking maybe the cam was binding or something. You say you are looking at the rear seal change shortly? Bite the bullet and drop the pan! The crank moving fore and aft will cause the rear seal to wear faster, plus you...

    Loud squeak / chirping noise (not a belt or pulley issue)

    That is where the sound was resonating from with mine, doubtful its a gasket or seal, one can hope.
