    A thought on using anything that kills bacteria or makes things smell good; Apparently some other problems medical are surfacing relating to killing good bacteria too which is considered very risky these days. Get some of those bacteria killers in say your anal orifice wiping your rear and...

    Good day there, I understand there maybe some restrictions but to prevent the rest of the American people from exercising the same right in the common areas of this nation is something that will eventually come back to bite some in the rear-end, then there is the contempt it breeds in society!

    New Wild Boar Snorkel at SEMA

    A straight up stack would be nice on that red jeep cowl and made to install/remove easy for fording or dust. If the stack needs support then removable small diameter bar stock or even hollow tube stock would do fine.

    Simple is good and you did it right! Back in the day I had no real idea what was causing all the wander, sway, wear and tear but when I opened an up-fitting manual it made all the difference the result now is suspension, breaking and steering components/parts last much longer now.

    After a review of your above statement I'm guessing you are directing it towards me, so, for the record no one is whining like a little child here. I'm stating a fact about how the private citizens of the several states of the union just accept laws that restrict or strip them of their rights...

    Tires too wide?

    Chalk over the tire surface then drive on it for short distance see where the chalk is still on tire, the middle then too much air, the edges then not enough air. This works with water too if you have a smooth surface to view tire tracks. Another point is from the pressure you finally determine...

    Tires too wide?

    Good tire size if e rated and I'm guessing 2 or 3 ply sidewalls too, while the smallest suggested rim size is 7.50" that's only .50" wider than what you have IMHO .25" less on each side of tire is will not be an issue however you do need to adjust air pressure so entire tread will contact road...

    Hood louvers and hood scoops

    AGAIN: Before you cut that hood! Venting the hood just beyond the radiator shroud is the way to pull the hot air through the radiator and out of engine bay. Any other location past that and you are pulling air into engine bay which is great if you crawl, going it slow off road, drive in town at...
