    OME 885 coils & front shocks, with TT top plate, Total Chaos UCA, Rear OME extended shocks, Rear TSB, Rear Toytec AAL, trimmed the saber-tooth-tiger-long-ass mud flaps. 17" XD Revolver rims, 265/75/17 BFG AT KO's. Ripped out the crappy FM Modulator & installed a PA-15-toy interface. OEM bed matt.
    I went to an airshow a few months ago, & there was a vendor there selling a type of tape. I was planning on going back the next day, but never made it. I'm trying to locate it.

    It is 1 1/2" wide & comes in diff colors. It has the texture (but heavier) of electrical tape. It stretches like electrical tape. Wrapping it around something like a leaky pipe, it can hold up to around 250 psig. It also had a very high temperature rating.

    This would be cool on the trail for split coolent hoses & things like that.

    Anyone heard of this?

    Pure silicon tape; thicker in the middle and feathered to a thin edge away from the center; usually has a line down the middle for an overlap mark; will melt into itself as it is warped and streached.

    I am trying to remember whare I saw it just the other day; Petersons 4 wheel mag or or some other mag advertisment. Try going to your local 4-wheel specialty shop or a dedicated crawler shop and ask. try google and just describe it.

    i do know that you can get it (red only) from Aircraft Spruce and specialty Co , but you will pay airplane prices for it.
