basically liked having it in for them to do a basic look over since it's all under warranty and the 4 for $60 oil change made it worthwhile.. but will most likely just start doing it myself (have 1 or 2 prepaids left from that 4 for 60 deal though) maybe get a floor jack to make doing tire rotations myself more sensible then the stock jack

I picked up a low profile 3 ton floor jack from harbor freight and it's awesome. Low profile because I have a 335i just in case you're wondering why the low profile. Lol They're really nice to have and get yourself some jack stands too. That way you can do the criss cross rotation!

I also went with the 3.5 ARB minus the shocks which I think makes it the dual rate.
I feel like I did something wrong by getting the OME shocks. No one seems to like them. What's your reason for not getting them? These will be my first shocks so I have nothing to base them on other than the stock Rubicon which has over 40k on them. Is it that yellow is not your color LOL?

No other reason than I've used Bilstein on other vehicles before and just have had good luck with them. MC didn't pick OME's because they suck. The color doesn't bother me though.

Yesterday I added a stubby bumper with bar and winch plate. Today I added a 2.5 inch Rough County lift. I'm loving the new rugged look.

DO you have one in particular you're looking at? I've heard a lot of the same things about the lights and I was considering the LED upgrades.

That's what I thought. They seem like a serious offroad company and they picked the OME based on the valving of their proprietary 6Pak shock. They said it was the closest to the 6Pak in terms of performance and ride quality.

I use materials from one of 3 vendors, I would need to go look at my container to tell you who its from. I only use top of the line stuff though, Tiger, DuPont, or NIC. I don't use anything subpar for my customers, or myself.

Received and installed my Rugged Ridge floor liners. Waiting for the weather to warm up a bit to install my Sill protectors and waiting for my GraBars. I've only had my rig since 2/14 and all I want to do is buy stuff! Lord help my wallet!

Go for the JW Speakers - you won't regret it. If you had told me when I first bought my Jeep that I would soon spend $700 on HEADLIGHTS...I would've told you were crazy. Now, I'll never own a Jeep without them. And yes, I got the fogs too - THEY'RE THAT GOOD!

Hey Bill, don't forget to get rearview side mirrors. Legally you need something.

I need to, I'm just trying to figure out what.

You sure in Florida it's illegal? I read the law and it says something along the lines of "a rearward facing device capable of seeing 100 yards". I assumed the rearview mirror satisfied that.
