Just re-tightened everything in my front end to spec with my new torque wrench (trackbar, LCAs, etc), and I THINK I successfully got rid of a loud clunking noise that started a few days ago every time I came to a complete stop.

Knock on wood...

After reading all the different threads about it being a missile, and/or not being able to reach it when needed, this was the best option I came up with. You can't fit a 2.5lb one by the door in 2013, and this way, maybe I can tilt my chair back and grab it if all else fails.
What type of extinguisher is that? Those look like the typical household variety.

What did you do to your JK today?

Sunday - installed Rugged Ridge oval sidesteps
Monday - loaded all our recovery gear in new storage bag and put on cargo area. I also checked UPS and my Smittybilt XRC MOD front bumper, bull bar, and XRC8 winch is to be delivered tomorrow.

So, once it gets above freezing again I have front and rear bumpers to install along with my 2" lift that should be here next Wednesday.

Yes I had to add the load resistor. Be sure to use the 2 outer wires. Thier site says the middle and outer but it is both outer.

First thing I thought of when I saw the page number was, "Never Forget!"

Second thing, I called 911 the other day because I saw some road rage between a Lincoln LS and a JKU on I-75 near Troy, Michigan. Looked like the Lincoln did a hit and run... 911 told me no other calls so nothing they could do until so.

Took the back seat out. It was rattling and didn't really serve a purpose.

Installed my N Fab side step bars but too dark for pics.

Also dropped in weather tech cargo mat and rugged ridge gas door.

Got mine back from Carolina Truggies. Alex and the guys did a great job. Installed TF 2.5 coil lift with shocks, Rock Krawler adjustable front track bar, and Bushwacker flat flares. Love it. Rides great so far and looks (I think) fantastic. These guys do awesome work! Here are a couple of quick pics.

I was afraid of that before I got it back but I like it a lot. I will look at going to 35s when it is time for tires but with the 3.21s I will want to regear as well. But I like it as is so I am gonna just keep reminding myself of that!

Considering you have 33's, 2.5 lift, AND flats, that looks quite good.

Looks great as is! Bigger tires are always a plus but I really like it.

Its because its a JKU. They look awkward (to me) with anything under a 35" because of the flares and wheelbase.
