  1. I have had all 3 UCA's side by side. Stock, AC and Rough Country/Superlift. The AC arms do not correct the BJ angle. They market them that way so they can sell more. In fact, they're even flatter than stock arms are, which makes the BJ angles WORSE than stock. Idiots.
  2. is still slogging through mental mud

  3. I would go with the white LED strobes first. The 8-strobe kit is only 20 watts per tube, which isn't all that bright IMHO. If you really want to be noticed, a Whelen 60 watt kit would be good, but spendy. +/- $300 IIRC.
  4. Damn, man. Jared was a good soul. He was nice to everyone and always tried to help out in arguments. We'll miss him and I'm sorry to hear of this.
  5. Hi... LTNS, NPORA. I somewhat recently had my hosting package canceled due to a mix-up with debit card numbers and expiration dates, so allllllll of the pics I had hosted for NPORA went away with the hosting package. To quote Charlie Brown, "AAAAAUUGGH!" >.< I got the account fixed and re-uploaded 99% of all the pics that were missing. Problem is, when I uploaded the backups I neglected to keep the capital letters in the filenames (dammit) so if a pic had a capital letter in the name originally and I re-uploaded it in all lower case it won't show up. If you find more missing pics of mine in any how-to's or important threads, please post here and let me know. -88
  6. Like the topic says, 4WheelParts.com has 2" by 20' Smittybilt tow straps on sale for $16.99 WITH FREE SHIPPING. That's a NICE price on a heavy duty tow strap! http://www.4wheelparts.com/Winches-Winch-Accessories/Smittybilt-Recovery-Strap.aspx?t_c=18&t_s=124&t_pt=5083&t_pl=5836
  7. His CD account doesn't have any pictures. Awwww. I'll mail back and ask for some!
  8. I got a notification of a message on my CarDomain account, check this out: How cool is that?
  9. He cashed it yesterday, so all is well.
  10. Hah...yesterday the GPS wanted me to take the entrance to the Marion County jail as a shortcut. Eediots!
  11. I already tried the Aerostar coils, they're WAY too soft. If the AS springs you found are progressive rate, the upper coils will all collapse on each other just from the weight of the Pathy. Here's a test pic I took.
  12. You can't crank the front end up that high without making problems for your CV axles. They're still stock axles and they still have a stock range of angularity/movement. You need about 1/2" between the UCA and the upper bumpstop at least. There's really no way to match maximum front lift to rear lift with these things due to the IFS front suspension setup. Ball joint spacers are not good in general if you intend to wheel your Pathy. Did you find the 1/2" spacers? I had a set on my Pathy and they nearly immediately broke my front suspension when I went wheeling. On the JGC springs, you HAVE to measure them. The spring wire thickness is key. They also need to be 9 coils tall. I found some at a local junkyard that are .58" thick, which gave me about 3" of lift.
  13. Read the can, man. Details are all over it.
  14. I had mud flaps once. They both came straight off the Pathy at the same time when I reversed in a muddy pit...the mud pushed them up against the tires and they ripped straight off.
  15. It's in the mail...should get there today or tomorrow.
  16. Here's a pic of the envelope. It goes in the mail in the morning. Inside is a personal check for $800, check number 1039. B should have it soon.
  17. Thank you very much! I feel oddly much the same...aren't I supposed to feel old some time? heh
  18. Change the fluid, drop the pan and clean the magnet off and the filter screen if possible.
  19. There are some excellent reasons for banning people in here! When should I start?
  20. Search is your friend, it's been covered many many times.
  21. Ronald Jenkees: Disorganized Fun. Check his stuff out, he does good work for a single person making his own music. www.ronaldjenkees.com
  22. I use a simple TomTom for work. There have been several times I followed it down a closed dead-end road that USED TO connect to another road, but for the most part it's an invaluable tool. I visit many different addresses daily and looking them up on a map isn't always an option, with all the country (rural) areas I have to drive to. Most maps only cover city (urban) areas.
  23. I couldn't have taken part in the CFC program with my gas hog '83 Chevy van even if I had wanted to. It's too old. Cut-off date for trade-ins was 84. The classic car lobbyists made sure nobody could trade in a REAL clunker by sticking that part in. I'm sure all the 80's domestic "classics" are safe now...
  24. "Sucking a valve" or "dropping a valve" is what happens when a valve breaks at the stem end and drops into the combustion chamber with catastrophic results. I'd check the timing first.
