  1. For those shopping for ready made kits Don't but the Transdapt kit. I got mine from 4x4parts.com,SKU: PPOK11134337. It is made of cast pot metal and has no QC on the finish. O-ring groove was not machined I had to clean up the female threads to esure I wouln't have flakes of metal in my oil system. Definately not the quality I would expect for the price.
  2. It depends on how much weight you think is going to go up there. I had a good 200 pound on mine only supported by the cross bars and it held up fine for a 100 mile trip.
  3. This is a slightly old thread so I'll add my input for future readers. I ordered the oil relocation kit from 4x4parts.com The kit I recieved was a specific fit item from Transdapt. It fit well but the finish was pretty shoddy for a $70 part. I had to smooth out molded metal from the o-ring groove. If I had to do it over i would have bought a slightly more expensive billet machined adapter. For me the best place to locate my filter was in the engine compartment just behind the battery. No worries about the tire hitting it.
  4. CBs like everything else can cost however much you want them too. I use mine to talk back and forth to other guys I'm out with. This super cheap one works for me. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005XSEATG/ref=oh_details_o04_s01_i01 What ever antenna you decide to go with if it is a decent model it needs to be "tuned" using a SWR meter to get the best recepion and transmitting distance. Good luck!
  5. Put in 3" lift coils from 4x4.com It seems like way more than 3" but hopefully time will settle them in

    oil filter?

    I found this a few weeks ago when I was asking myself the very same question. Take a look and decide for yourself. http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/index.html
  7. I've had the Gray Quick crete stuff on my garage floor for almost 2 years now. It holds up great to normal traffic but will scratch up if you use metal car ramps without something under them. It also sun faded / oxidized on the 4 or so inches that are outside my garage door. Over all I'm real happy with it. The biggest messes have cleaned right up.
  8. I haven't been able to find any GL4 tranny oil in my neck of the woods. I am going to use some Penzoil Synchrmesh MTF. It is speced for GM and Chrysler, but I use to use it in my Talon TSI with great results. Some Google action turned up that it is basically GL4 80W + additives. I'll post back here in 10,000 miles or so to let everyone know how it's doing.
  9. Put on a new passenger door handle, and fixed the linkage so I can actually unlock the door with the key.
  10. The do it yourself Duplicolor "Black Chrome" is designed to paint right on to shiny finishes like chrome but you need a good clean surface to start any imperfections you have will show through. Chrome is hard to get paint to stick to with the smooth finish. So if you are going the plain spray paint method, best bet is sand blast then paint.
  11. Damn Raf, Glad to hear that you and the family are OK. Sorry I didn't hang around. I'm going out of town tomorrow and wanted a little more time with the family. I didn't take a lot of pics but here is a link to what I have. Hoppe your truck isn't to hard to get up and going 100%. http://s1117.photobucket.com/albums/k590/pbailey184/NPORA%20Crown%20King/
  12. Are we settled on the meeting place and time tomorrow morning? Just let me know and I'll be there.
  13. I saw on the news tonight that the storm put 18 in of sow in Crown King. Should be melted by Saturday but it might be muddy.
  14. I would really like to go wheeling sometime that would be way cool

  15. I'm definately a go for Saturday. I have a cb and a tent so I'm good. Looking forward to meeting up with you guys.
