    I get my gas free at WalMart.

    (I head to the parking lot after dark with a siphon.) :secret:

    Demand, due to all those jerks siphoning gas in the WalMart parking lot.

    Seriously, it is demand due to the growing economy.

    I'd do that too, but Walmart is a 160 mile round trip for me. :(

    Bought the engine/suspension skid used for $30. No bolts included...got the parts numbers for bolts and rivets through forum search and will be ordering those today. I just need to get 2 more skids.

    They worked great. Was able to split the case. Even got it bolted back together with new rtv.

    Then realized I forgot to put a spring back in. I put away my tools and called it a night. I'll redo it tomorrow lol. [​IMG]

    I wish the Tera Flex 2LOW kits would work in the NP241 case.
    Otherwise, anyone have any suggestions on how to make a front drive line disconnect?

    It takes me ten minutes to remember what I went out to the garage for. :icon_neutral:

    Took me nearly four months to get around to it, but I finally installed the front tow hooks I got from Jo6pak last February. Even if I never need to use them, they sure do set off the front of the jeep quite nicely.

    after finding the relatively expensive clips on Amazon, plastic molding is re-installed with the new skid plates and rock rails - ready for trail!

    I went with the Rocky Road Outfitters Super Sliders - I know they aren't well-liked by some (most?) on the forum, but I had absolutely no problems with their customer service and the install went fairly easily. I've been very pleased with the purchase!
