    '98 4runner OME Springs and Bilstein 4600 shocks?

    Is there any reason I can't run OME lift springs with the Bilstein 4600 series front struts that I already have on my '98 4runner? OME info says their springs can't be used with the stock struts but the Bilsteins are quite a bit longer so I think they are no different than the OME struts...

    Bilstein front shock lower bushings

    I replaced the front upper ball joints on my '98 4runner this past weekend, and noticed that my front lower shock bushings are shot. These are Bilstein BE5-2450 4600 series shocks. Where can I find new bushings? Are the OEM bushings the same as the Bilstein? Thanks!

    98 4runner front spring recomendations

    air filter options

    My 2012 Wrangler has spent time on some quite dusty backroads in Utah over the last few years. Everytime I check / replace the air filter, there is a very fine coating of dust on the clean side of the airbox and intake piping. It would appear that the OEM paper filter media just cant keep up...

    CODesertRat 2012 Wrangler JK

    I figure I ought to introduce myself. Here's our (my wife and I) 2012 Wrangler that we use for exploring Colorado and southern Utah. We've been doing this for a long time with a number of different rigs (IH Scouts, Nissans, Jeeps), and we were finally in a position to buy a new 4x4 a few years...

    2012 Wrangler cylinder head failure

    The check engine light came on again on my Wrangler (29K miles) over the weekend with a P0300 fault (multiple cylinder misfire), this was the 3rd time in the past couple months. I had hooked up my laptop and cleared the fault code previously as there were no other symptoms, but on this 3rd...

    2012 Wrangler factory service manual

    Howdy fellow Jeepers, I'm a long time lurker on this great site, but haven't participated much. I've now got a question that I cant seem to find the answer for. I've had a factory service manual for every one of the dozen or so 4x4 vehicles (Jeeps, IH Scouts, Nissans, Toyotas) Ive owned in...
