    ^That's what I was trying to say. The LCA bolts don't come out as easily for people living in the northern states.

    Of course you are. You're the first person to warn me about the problem.

    CanadianMade, some motivational words for you.

    Beautiful work ! I'm thinking of getting the Yellow Top. I understand people have had problems with the Red Top. Did you need a adapter to install it ? Were the cable posts in the same position as the OEM ? Thanks for any info.

    Pain in the ass.
    I'm not going to wait in line just to ask someone to activate the compressor... and if I'm doing all 4 tires, it's going to take a 2nd trip.

    You'd think there wouldn't be lines in the gas station with everyone using plastic and Speedpass... but there they are. 4-5 deep.

    If I break a bolt while removing them I don't have the proper tools to remove it. I tried to take out the one from my skid plate with a bolt extractor and the bolt extractor broke in the hole.
    also, i was quoted by a shop that it would take 6-7 hours to install (potential seized bolts) at $110/hour shop rate.
