DIY Quick Disconnect Pins This mod is not my idea. I'll gladly admit I ripped it off another post on the interwebs. But I figured I'd snap some process photos and post the results here. And thanks Kizer for keeping a lid on this until I finally got it installed.
These were made for a friend of mine who's just getting into offroading (and modifying his Jeep).
We all know how helpful a quick disconnect link can be for unhooking the front swaybar. And we all know all the good aftermarket discos available. But their prices are not cheap at $80-140. For someone just getting started or on a smaller lift it's possible to make a quick disconnect pin for a fraction of the cost and simply use the factory swaybar links.

Well, in spite of the Goodyear Kevlar tires being lower priced, I enjoyed my Cooper STT's so well over the years I opted to buy another set. They weren't easy to come by either...locally anyway. I ended up ordering them off of Amazon and had them shipped to my door for $200 less than the cheapest I could find locally. I paid America's Tire to install and center sipe them for $80 including the lifetime warranty (which they made available even though I didn't get the tires from them). They seemed to think I would sit by idly and accept being switched to a tire I really didn't want.
I know some like the Goodyear Wrangler Kevlar and agree they are a good tire...and a good value. But they aren't what I wanted. I've never had a problems at all with my Cooper's with the exception of popping off a valve stem on the winter trail (some remember). Heck, I even sold my old tires for $100 on Craigslist. In fact, I could have gotten more for them and pulled the add in less than an...
I just ordered a new soft top for my Jeep off o f ebay. It is made from the original Sail Cloth Material and is a factory fit for 03-06 TJs rather than the more common 97-06 fitting found in really cheap tops.
I need some advise. Are there any vehicle safety people out there (firemen, police) that could advise on the best solution for my kids.
I have an '85 CJ-7 with lab belts and the little bench seat in the back. I the past when my kids were little I would strap their car seats in the back so that they could ride along. Now they are 5 and 8 and are too big for harness equipped car seats. I had a harness seat that was rated to 65 pounds, but my kids shoulders are too wide for it. A booster seat, like what I would use in a modern car, seems stupid because there are no shoulder straps to be repositioned, and that is really their purpose. Even a high backed booster style seat doesn't seem like it would add any true protection, and raising them up off the bench seat with a booster seems like it would make it worse and not better since there is no shoulder belt.
I am wondering how best to take them Jeepin' with me and keep them road legal and safe. I want to drive this veh...
Just for tax purposes we decided to let our CLUB status expire and just call ourselves a group. I highly recommend that people join the PNW4DA as independents if they would like to stay involved with 4x4 community. Of course we still plan to do the Toy drive in November and get together whenever someone post up a event.
