They?re not in fear of guns Charles, they just want control over who has them.

BTW, there was another officer killed in CO today (3rd in last 3 weeks or so) & there is a nasty rumor floating around some friends of mine who wear a certain uniform that Denver is going to start seizing mags over 15 rounds. I have not run across this info anywhere else but it would not surprise me if this is in the works. That will not end well if it is true.

Considered the TRXUS? Amazing in the snow, tough, most I know that run them have zero complaints.

I am shopping rubber for the Daughters Eco Beater myself.

Norm, I had not but will look into those as well.

As for the Ford, I am very happy with my cooper atp?s so far and the price point was right too.

Cootie, ran those Truxus tires. They blow up every once in awhile you know... Mine were traction gettin' out of round wheel covers on the SAS tundra I built once.

Well, it has been awhile since you had a real automotive build thread. For the record attaching a Chinese bumper to the GJ doesn't count either........ :popcorn:

OK, so my garage is a tiny 3 car as I've stated before. So working on Baylee's xj apparently I had a tool drawer on my cabinet open or I didn't get it closed all the way. So went to drive the jk and my mirror hooked the drawer and did this as it was frigid that day. Btw the 25 year old craftsman tool chest didn't get a scratch......



So I said screw it I never use that mirror anyhow and bought a pair of these delete mirror pucks (yes they were less than buying a replacement mirror). So 5 minutes of wrenching and here we are.





Honestly, I like how clean it looks and am considering removing the drivers side one even though I use that mirror often. So what do you all think? Leave it or remove it?

On another note, even after dropping $1500 in parts in the last two weeks on Baylee's Just Empty Every Pocket xj I am making progress on parts acquisition for the axle swap in the JK.

The superduty knuckles sat in a box waiting to head to weaver fab for the last two weeks. I had sent them a request for info via their website and apparently that process has been giving them issues. Since I was tired of looking at the box I broke down & called them this AM (they were very apologetic by the way) so I got that squared away and the cores sent in to them to be machined along with their high steers arm kit added to both knuckles. I spoke with Tate and will be buying spicer ball joints from him once I get my complete list together of axle parts needed.

I am at the moment still figuring out parts and pieces for the axle build. The Artec box showed up with the front truss but I have yet to unpackage it and I have a set of off road fenders headed this way as we speak from Summit. I ordered a magnetic base and dial indicator from them as well since it appears my old setup grew legs or I lost it in the move to CO.

I was going to ask the same question as Bob. in WA you need at least two rear facing. And I like them for watching the rear tire without sticking my face out the window in the oncoming path of mud and debris

Good question, I don?t know honestly but I?ve never been pulled over with the doors off for such a thing. I like my drivers side mirror (& use it) so it will be staying but the passenger side one will be left off. I do live in hippyville so I should be ok.

Edit: ok hippyland (aka Colorado) states if I have an unobstructed view 200 ft behind me the inside rear view mirror is all I need. If that view is obstructed then I need two external rear view mirrors, one on each side. So in reality you can legally pull doors and mirror off Jeep & as long as you?re not pulling a trailer that obstructs the rear view or say the cargo area is not packed full then you?re still legal.

Nice to have for security reasons as well. You always know if someone's approaching from behind.

I think it was just mad you parked in the garage. I mean its a jeep right?

Out here, you need to have 2 unobstructed rear view mirrors. So if you have a spare tire or anything in the back (like stickers) it could be an issue.

no symmetry...  Lose the driver side or put the passenger side back on the jeep.  Trying to red neck this thing up or what?
