OthersDoor dont shutWhy:
-the bottom door seal which is a block of sponge filled with alternately ice and water

To fix:
- removed the locks/seals and oiled and greased everything that moves but it still happens.
- try WD40 or Duck Oil but again try on a test patch first.
- on cold weather; suggest stiffening of the door-seals preventing total closure of the doors. There are various things you can coat the seals with that will keep them supple but you might find adjusting the strikers on the door pillars themselves might help too but make sure you mark their original position by drawing around them with a pencil to provide a reference from which to work from.
- try adjusting your striker where the door latches outwards slightly,(2 bolts) or does your striker still have the plastic tube on it?
- it sound like the striker is out of adjustment....or may be too loose and pushed in too far......try moving it outwards a little and see what happens......keep trying it till its in the right position......
ACDouble fan the fan is only useful when you are stationary. The effect of the fan is about 20-30km/h and if you move faster than that, you get more air going through than the fan can supply. So once you move faster than 40km/h, it makes no difference whether your fan is working or not.
ACSlow AC airlook like not enough pressure on the compressor, either low gas pressure or compressor losing its capability to go high pressure (wear and tear, or worn out)

Expedition kits48" or 60" tall? Hilift jackA 48" HiLift has served me well for about 25 years. Ample tall enough for most recovery, slewing out of ruts etc. Do you know how FRIGHTENINGLY unstable a hi-lift is in use?

Anything above a couple of feet off the ground is dangerous - even if you know what you are doing. Unless you intend to get a big lump of chain and use it as a hand winch you shouldn't need a big one.
Wheel & tiresWolf wheel & studsThe copy Chinese wolf rims are very thick at the wheel mount flange, requiring longer studs on the hubs if you want to have stud protruding beyond the wheel nut.

Just to confirm, I also have genuine wolf rims, and they are marked as tubeless.
And running them on the original (short) studs, never a problem for more than 15 years.

Somewhere on the forum there is the army recommendation regarding the shorter studs. There was just an increased torque value needed but I cannot remember what it was.
