I can probably dust the cobwebs off Jeep and come out for this. Do we have enough Jeeps to make a good showing? Any thoughts on decorating the rigs with anything?

It is rare to get service that is worthy of rave reviews, but Wyvon Rice is the epitome of the hard working, honest, local small business man. Not only is he customer driven and focused on providing the best service possible, this guy really knows his stuff. I wasnít exactly sure what I needed to get all the features I wanted in an in dash navigation unit for my tow vehicle. I tried to go to one of those national electronics chains for help, but it was obvious that the kids working there didnít have a clue. So I got online and found Wyvon Audio in York and decided to send him an e-mail. He got back to me immediately and gave me great recommendations and advice. We exchanged several e-mails and he was always responsive, friendly, and helpful. He covered all the bases and made sure I knew all the options and pros and cons of different products, and even sent me a quote. So I was able to figure out exactly what I wanted, and know how much it would cost to get it installed without even leaving my house! Then he got me right in and had my unit installed in no time. One of the parts ended up being more expensive than he originally quoted, and Wyvon actually split the cost with me so I wouldnít have to pay extra. Who does that? I did have a couple of small issues after the installation, mostly due to some obscure quirks with the GM rear seat entertainment system, but Wyvon really stood behind his service. He got my vehicle right back in and got on the phone and found the right experts to track down the issue and correct it. I also needed an add on part to fix an engine noise issue, and would you believe he did not even charge me for that part? Again, who does that? Oh, and dropping off and picking up a vehicle is easy too because his shop is behind his house. So when I needed to drop off or pick up my car after 9-5 business hours, he was there. And he really worked around my schedule to make things most convenient for me. This is the kind of personalized attention and service that you will only get from a quality small business. You canít go wrong as far as knowledge, service, and integrity if you go see Wyvon! Oh, and he is a former Marine! So give him your business for all your car electronic needs and support a local small business, and a veteran who served our country!

Hey, when you are the best you have to expect others to try and emulate your success. That just goes to show that we have the event by which others will be measured. It's almost a compliment.† ;)

Technical Advice and Questions / Re: Windshield hinge bolts question
« on: July 21, 2010, 02:26:33 pm »
A "booger" indeed! I did end up getting them in today.

It dawned on me today that the silver bolts that were in my windshield hinge were not original - the previous owner must have swapped them out to install a cargo rack that was on there. (I got rid of that a while ago) Then I remembered when I bought the Jeep finding a bag of random bolts and screws in the center console. So when I looked in that bag, sure enough there was a fresh set of factory torx bolts that were just the right size for the windshield hinges.

As luck would have it, a buddy at work happened to have his tools in his truck including an impact driver. Between the new bolts and the impact driver - that got r done!† :D I don't know if those bolts will ever come out though. Anybody want to buy a nice light bar?† ;)

I think part of the problem in the first place was that the metal piece inside the windshield frame that the holes go into kept shifting around behind the frame creating a bad angle for the bolts as they were going in. I think the one that got really stuck must have gone in cockeyed. We found that we could stick a screwdriver through one hole to hold it in place and line up the hole for one bolt, and then once that bolt was in half way we used that to move things around to line up the holes for the second bolt. Where there's a will there's a way!

Crisis over!!

Technical Advice and Questions / Windshield hinge bolts question
« on: July 20, 2010, 08:46:35 pm »
Okay, so I was trying to take my light bar off after the Jeep show. (it won't fit in my garage with that on) and I had a devil of a time getting a couple of the stupid torx bolts out. I ended up stripping the head on one of them and had to use an extractor to get it out. I eventually got them all out and got the light bar off, but now the remaing bolts don't want to go back in. I got them about half way in using just a torx bit and socket, (I don't have an impact driver or anything like that) but I don't want to force them for fear of stripping more heads, and I'm afraid I may have damaged the threads during the difficult extraction. So that brings up two questions:

1. What size (thread and length) are the bolts on the side of the windshield hinge on a TJ? I want to replace them all with normal phillips head bolts.

2. Anyone have any tricks for getting bolts into stubborn holes?

Stimulating the economy again. Got the following put on at Hoak's this week:

Slip Yoke Eliminator
Tom Woody Rear Driveshaft
Rubicon Express Track Bar
BDS Rear Upper Adjustable Control Arms
Shift Link Repair Kit
Transfer Case Chain
Transfer Case Range Fork
Front Hub Assembly
Front U-Joints
Spider Gears

I just went in for the Slip Yoke and Driveshaft, but apparently the other stuff was either broken or warn to the point of repair. My spider gears were actually missing some teeth and my range fork was bent. I guess after 95,000 miles and some hard wheeling, things are bound to wear out. I should be good to go for a while now.
