I don't recall whether I'd thanked you over on Scoobytruck or not, Thacrudd, so:

THANKS! These are great links, and Scoobytruck is a great Baja resource!

Can’t thank you enough for the interior pictures. I have one dang back light out behind the clock temp gage in my 2005 Baja Turbo and would never have attempted to change the bulb without your pictures.

Wish I would have seen the tonneau cover site prior to buying my Ozz. Would've saved a couple hundred. Thanks for the links!

I love the idea of tutorials and would also love to see one on doing a swap from a non turboed automatic to a turboed version.

It would be nice to see a tutorial on custom light bars. Anyone made one up before?

I've lifted mine (twice) initially 2" back in 07, with a Scorpion body lift , and again this spring when I replaced my struts, I added the "Subtle Solutions" one inch spacers to each strut on top of the Scorpion spacers. Running General Grabbers 215/70 16's these give me more than 12" of clearance at the rocket panels, and over 10.5" at the rear differential.

Hi... New here and can't start a thread yet. I need help figuring out how to remove the long plastic trim piece that sits above the tailgate license plate assembly. I just purchased the Baja and this piece is cracked It's an '03, but I doubt that matters.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I believe you have to take the black panel off the inside and then you'll remove the body colored panel underneath.
