    Yeah I was looking at Keoke's set of SLR control arms, but they have a poly bushing on each side and I'm afraid that will make them too stiff
    I mean, sure the option is easy now because they're available, but I don't want to get stuck with a set of control arms that I'll end up selling a year from now because I would need something entirely different.
    Honestly they're too nice for me too, I would rather see them go to somebody who actually tracks their Juke, because that's what they were actually designed for. I would rather put the money toward designing control arms specific to my setup.

    I was trying to figure out how I could incorporate a bike rack into the rear tire carrier design, but I didn't really like how far it hung off the back.
    So I have an F-150 model lying around for my friend's vehicle to mess with it in 3D, and I figured I would import it to give it some context, and (not much of a surprise) the F-150 absolutely dwarfs it. Even the absolute mad-man level modification I would do to it -- 33" tires with a 2+" lift, the wheels are still about the size of a stock F-150 and the wheels 4-5" off the fenders on both sides is still the same track width as a stock F-150.
    I mean it's crazy for a Juke, but somehow still not horribly inconvenient-- and I think that's the most impressive part.

    You could do the Deer/cargo carrier utilizing a hitch mount and incorporate the bike, fuel, and tire etc etc on it.

    Now that would be too easy, Macgyver. Sure I could buy a bolt on hitch and buy a pre-made rack, but why give up the elegance of a body-mounted swing out tire carrier?
    Also think about all the departure angle I could get if I didn't have a hitch to worry about

    Oh man I missed the hinges in the rendering. That would be cool.

    You could always do the African thingy Landcruiser roof rack tire holder.

    I've been thinking about getting one of the Perrycraft-style roof racks because they tend to look a lot more "OEM" than Thule or some others. My current wheel is like 60 lbs, but with the rims and 33s I'm looking at are about 85+lbs, which is a lot of weight to keep up on the roof
    I still don't know how well the tire carrier design is going to work, but I'm pretty confident I can hide a lot of the structure and reinforcement of it underneath the bumper.

    So I got bored of waiting for my coilovers, and I wanted to work on the Juke. I didn't want to spend too much money, because I haven't officially purchased the coilovers yet, so I bought a 2J Pulley.

    I struggled with the belt tensioner for like 15 minutes, but when I went to break the bolt loose, the crank just spins freely? I spent another 30 minutes just trying to get the belt tracked on the pulleys properly, but that's kind of a bummer. Is there no good DIY way to install it? I looked through some other threads and it seems like most people take it to Nissan or a mechanic shop to get it done, but is there no way to get it off without an air impact?

    What about the "bump" method? Attach your tool, secure it against a solid object/ground. Tap on and off the start button quickly.

    I did read that method, but I didn't feel like going into the fuses to keep the fuel pump from activating. I've also rounded off too many bolts before in less strenuous circumstances to feel confident in doing that. Seems kinda sketchy.
