Yes the do break, usually the bracket that mounts to the block breaks, but I got them to raise the motor up 1" to get rid of a slight vibe I get a 40ish

Picked up a set of Bilstein 5100s for $289 shipped from Kolak Offroad. Great prices. PM me if any one wants his contact info. That is by far the cheapest price I found.

I did my stubby bumper conversion today.
Here's the finished product, before taking off the masking tape and putting my license plate back on.

Had nail removed from rt. rr. tire that was causing a very slow leak, and had a new valve installed in the spare that was causing a very fast leak !

Gave my 98TJ some new AP985 Autolite Platinum Spark Plugs, new BWD Select-7mm Supermag Custom Fit Wire Set, BWD-Distributor Cap and Rotor, and a new BWD-Ingnition Coil. Got it all at the O'Reilly Auto Parts close by and Installed it all, in just over 2hrs this evening. It was over due for a Tune Up, Running Smooth Now!

I posted this in the JK section but what the heck figured I might as well post over here also.

Set it on the ground with the 37's on and rolled it outside.

I got my trektop nx, bestop rollbar covers, and delta H4 headlights in. I took off the old rollbar covers and started putting I the new ones. In the process I realized that they sent me the set for a TJ and not LJ. So I called QT and the shipped the right set out today. (Excellent costumer service!!!!) So I put the old rollbar covers back on. Installed my trektop nx top. It was a pain in the behind, but it looks awesome!!! Then I installed the delta H4 headlights. All in all had a great day working on my jeep.
