    I have a bad habit of taking anything free somebody gives me. Then realizing later that it's worth next to nothing

    I would've kicked down my old suspension if I knew you were looking. Why it ended up on the curb.

    Speaking of selling parts, are first gen grills worth anything? I have a spare I'm not using. Bought it in case I fucked my stock one up when I made my custom one

    Keep it so when you get a winch you can see where you gotta cut by using that one

    I don't think I'll have to cut for a winch. But if I do mine is just metal mesh, not worried about cutting it

    So here is what I have figured out...

    For Poly bushings, stick with the bushing manufacturer grease (daystar = lubrathane). If you can't do that, the best poly bushing grease I have used to date is.....


    Energy Suspension Formula 5 grease


    It is some super messy tacky goop but i dont see the bushings complaining. Autozone, pepboys - all of the auto part peeps should carry the small tubes. If you need a bulk solution, Amazon.

    I am the world’s shittiest craftsman

    Is there a way to alleviate the flexing? I was thinking metal guy wire and turnbuckles.

    I would make a terrible civil engineer

    Assuming you'll hang them from the holes? If so why not two more pieces going from corner to corner to give it more structure?
