    I reset it with my ultragauge yesterday and it hasn't come back since even before I replaced the gasket today. I'm enjoying no CEL so far and the quieter exhaust lol. Hopefully changing the gasket fixes it for you! My check engine code was P0420 by the way.

    Those look amazing :thumbsup:

    Also cleaned out my plate lights, they're like new now.

    Fixed the massive bump in the rear bumper, n then took care of the rust with Rust Killer primer before painting it black.

    Installed some window visors

    And then of course, gave her a nice show room shine :cool:

    So I take it this is a dedicated wheeling rig or are you keeping the doors to throw them on if it rains?


    Very clean sir!

    After a few years of periodic issues with no air coming out of my vents. I changed the thermo switch a month ago, all was good. Yesterday it stopped working again, new fan on order. I hope this fixes it. The fan does make noise when it does work.

    that's a different approach, but you said you didn't have to "cut" into the body. wouldn't drilling be considered cutting? sweet though! curious how much pushing that rubber would withstand

    I take it that you unbolt the rubber latch when you change doors? Also to make things a little easier on you, you might want to consider putting some quick pins in the hinges so that you don't have to realign the door when you swap back. You just need another set of hinges and some pins with a hole in the bottom with R-clips. The way I have my half doors setup, I can change them in about 10-15 mins., maybe quicker than that. I need to time myself one day. Check out my build thread, I think I posted a picture or two of my hinges.
