    I teach welding and industrial rigging at our apprentice training center, I deal with that question almost DAILY. I saw this early this morning and thought “damn, I know the answer!”, haha.
  2. Are 7/8" shackle mounts not really 7/8"?

    Shackles are actually sized by the diameter of the steel in the bow, with the pin being 1/8” larger diameter than the shackle. A 7/8” shackle has a 1” diameter pin. 3/4” shackle is what you need

  4. Gladiator top removal - best way to remove myself?

    Hoist a top. I used to take my Cj-7 top off by myself, but that was 25 years ago, I was a little more stout then. I can lift the gladiator top, but it’s awkward and my arms are a little short.

  9. What do you guys think?

    As far as I know, not re geared. That would be one of the first things I do, as my current JT has 35’s with 3.73’s and 8th gear never happens. I’m not a huge fan of the 20” wheels either, but they can be changed easily and the 20’s can be sold

    Damn, that’s a deal! My local dealer has three 22’ JT Rubicons with manual trans that have never left the lot… if the manual transmission stop sale ever goes away, I’m going to try and deal on one of those
  13. Possibility of an APR incentive soon?

    There’s 2 2022’s still on a dealer lot near me. They’re both Rubi’s with Manual Trans, but the dealer won’t sell them because of a supposed recall ??
