    Does this look right (e-brake related)

    I'm trying to chase down a squeak/ rattle in the back and decided it must be e-brake related. I noticed these bolts with a pad just floating. Are they supposed to be seated and does anyone know if they can be purchased separately? The nut is stuck so I will need to replace them. Thanks for...

    Handheld CB radio?

    Hello folks, Does anyone in the club use a handheld CB? I know HAM is the best/preferred communication, but I'm just not ready to commit to that. I also know radio is a requirement for club runs so I'm looking for a relatively simple solution that will fit the bill. I honestly would only be...

    Front Sway Bar Bushing Question

    A few weeks ago I developed a front end squeak and decided I needed to address it. First I replaced the sway bar end links (they were in bad shape). The squeak continued so I replaced the sway bar bushings. This resulted in a pop when transitioning from left to right while driving...

    $15 pet barrier

    My dog has gotten a little big for his kennel and I decided the best solution was a barrier. I looked at Speski (probably the best option), but they are even more expensive now so I decided to pass. Next I checked out rainger nets, but I felt $220 for nylon webbing was a bit much. So now I...

    What first... bigger tires, sliders, or skid plates

    Just like the title says I'm looking for some opinions on what to buy first. All three aren't in the budget at the moment, but I would like to do one of the above. I primarily drive forest service roads in Montana and haven't done too much serious wheeling. Of course as I make improvements to...
