    Haha I remember seeing that. Good to note, I’ll be sure the radiator is one of the last things to get unboxed and installed :rofl:

    ALL OF THEM!...Then some more.
    Either 01-04s or they might be Jungle Flares actually. Which Im not sure are made any more or not.

    The front one seems wider than an 01-04 to me.

    i do like the colormatched grill, but PO painted the original chrome grill so its chipping/peeling in the center... itll have to get redone eventually, but ill have to decide then if i want to colormatch it again or paint it black. ill keep you posted lol

    My first car was a lowered/modded mk3 VW gti... then i had a lowered/modded BMW e36... im plenty used to the oil stains haha

    i guess the harley is step one! gotta get the bigger stuff done with that and then convince the wife i need more down the line haha.

    When ever I have the wheels cranked to the left while in reverse, my front driver side wheel makes an awful rubbing/grinding sound. I have looked everywhere for where it may be rubbing but I can’t seem to find it. My first guess was the tires I just put on are bigger but they are the exact same size as my previous set. So I started looking to see if it’s rubbing on my brake lines or any control arms but don’t see any signs of it. Anyone might have a clue what it could be?

    FWIW, crank bolt is a reusable part. It’s not TTY.

    CBI/Prinsu cab rack; pricey but form and function are great. Very versatile rack. They RARELY go on sale. Even on BF they limit the sale period to just a few hours. If you are considering one, I wouldn’t recommend waiting for a sale given the current and projected impacts of inflation.

    Gotta drill one way or the other. I drilled directly into the roof. Or you can get rails and drill into the roof then bolt to that. Up to you

    Yeah I didn’t think about taking the old one. I’m just happy with how much better it runs now.

    correct, you drill into the roof and use rivnuts to secure the rack to the roof. Also, I received an email earlier in the day from CBI that stated their prices are going up on August 2nd because the cost of their materials have gone up 35-60% in recent months.

    New tailgate latch install this morning. Decent fitting part that was only $22 Canadian on Amazon.

    Yeah me too so I guess time will tell but I’ve been operating with a broken latch for a few years now so this is much better.

    I did use OEM when I replaced the drivers door handle after a bad Amazon experience

    The doorhandle was $169 Canadian from the dealer here… Ouch

    Out with the old, in with the new. No small wonder the compressor sounded like a cicada, it had maybe 5 CC of oil.

    Put 120cc of PAG 46 in the compressor and 20 in the receiver. Been holding 30” of vacuum for about 20 minutes now, I’ll give it another 40 min and button her up.
