There's a great sale going on at harbor freight today thru Sunday. Just bought a 20-150lbs click torque wrench for $10. There are things like tie downs, tool bags, extension sets, work gloves, etc for super cheap.

Lift is done but FJ will likely stay in the shop until Tuesday or Wednesday. Key is there to move it in case BK suddenly needs the recliner out of his truck.

I hear you, nothing like bashing the hell out of a perfectly good vehicle. Raptor had a sweet spot where it took a couple well placed smacks, but every other vehicle I've done was brutal.

Fj is now evacuated. Of course with my new found height I managed to bump the roof tent on the door as I pulled it out.

Door slides up and down ok but not as smooth as it did. If we can't fix it with a hammer I'll pay to get it repaired. ****!

As long as we don't have to hang off the door like a gorilla to close it or use Tomas level strength to open it, and it can still be locked with the bottom flush on the ground I don't think it'll be a problem.

No hanging gorilla required but you have to give it some momentum to get it past a certain point. With my new hammer smashing skills I think I can get it sliding like a mexican deuce.
