Looking for your Cheap Tricks!!!

Subject says it all - I am looking to put together a huge listing of people's cheap tricks, hopefully to put together on a web site in the near future. They don't have to be ones you came up, just tell any you know of or have used. Here is what I need:

1. A short description (a few sentences or a short paragraph) of the cheap trick.

2. Your name (As you prefer it to be seen) so I can include you as the "submitter" of the Cheap Trick.

This is not just for Jeep stuff - any 4x4 or general automotive cheap trick will do! Also, cheap "tools" seem to be popular as well! Share, share, share!

I already got quite a few good ones from the "Homemade" thread below, but I would like to see lots more.

You can post here, and/or send them directly to me (both is preferred).

Re: Looking for your Cheap Tricks!!! COme on people, I know you have some!

I did, and got some good tips - but I am looking for a bunch more!

The Toyota BBS is killing you guys in this! They have given me TONS of cheap tricks, and I would like to get some more that I know you guys have hidden away in the corners of your brains[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Hey - just using a little friendly rivalry to get people to contribute! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

BTW - you really think your Jeep is THAT good in the snow? Come on, you don't think there is a Toyota out there that is better? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Hey, I think I have a very nice truck, but I won't say there is not a Jeep (or any other brand for that matter) out there that does things better...

Re: Looking for your Cheap Tricks!!! COme on people, I know you have some!

Ya know, this is kinda like the Harley vs. Jap bike issue...Harley's were first, then the crotch rockets took over because Harley got too complacent...well...guess who the Toyota's copied. It takes this type of 'friendly' competition to keeps us all on our toes.....but when it comes down to it, there is not a single one of us who would not help the other out of a jam on the trail....besides, we have to pick on some one....the Chevy and Ford guys are too easy to mess with......he he....

Here my tip:

In order to see the timing marks on the bottom pulley use Liquid Paper on the pulley

Re: Looking for your Cheap Tricks!!! Link to the Toy board thread on this

Here you go:

I hope to get all of these organized and put them up on the web somewhere once I get enough to make it worth-while.

Re: Looking for your Cheap Tricks!!!

It's oranges and apples........
most of this post has "jeep" tricks & the "toy" post has tips for them.
Some of them fith both but not a whole lot. I did read-em though when you first posted it.Good luck on your site and give us an address when you get it done.
