I need a Transfer case bolt, one of the main bolts that attach t-case to transmission.
Is there anywhere to find them besides the dealer. I went to the boneyard, they use rims welded together to make stands to hold the jeeps up without wheels. The jeeps crossmember is sitting right on the "rim - stands", which makes it near impossible to find one that i can drop the crossmember on. I have the bolt but there is a nut with a fixed washer on it, i can not find a replacement bolt with that attached washer at all.

Its a pick n pull, i guess my only option is to use one of their engine hoists to lift the body up. Maby i could either relocate thier stands out of my way. But im not sure if they would let me bring a jack in there.

Anybody know of a place on line, to find that hardware?

What is the best Bedliner, Line x, rhino liner etc...
i have my bed in the 89 Line-x'd. super durable, pretty decent price, quick turnaround time, lifetime warranty. after 2 years, it still has the same deep black color that it had since day one. only "problem" i have with it is cleaning it when it gets really muddy. but since i dont hang around the deep mud all the often, its no big deal.

It needs to be a brush on application, can you buy line x, or do you have to get it done?
Just hard to get the mud out of that texture?

You can buy Herculiner at your local auto parts store.

I have the same problem with the Herculiner on the rockers and quarter panels on my XJ. It's hard to get the mud off and get the Herculiner a nice black again...
