Well they look nice. That's about all I can say about them at this point. Finished the lift about 12:30 last night and haven't driven it yet. Still have to add the exhaust spacers and steering stabilizer today.

Put on some Armadillo door stops, they work good so far just have to get use to the clicking sounds when I open and close the doors. Rotated the wheels too, probably give it a bath. Sunny and 75 in buffalo in March! WTF?

Had heard installed yesterday what a difference. I have been reading all the talk about regearing with the lift & 35's. Oh my what a difference. I didn't know I had this power in my jeep. Everybody was right the regear is worth the money. If anybody is dissappointed with their jeep after doing a lift & adding 35's with the 3:21 gears replace them and you will think you have a new ride !!

Tell me about it, I bought mine April 2010 and have been out of town for every snow storm. Next month will be 2 years and I've yet to drive it in the snow.

After her bath, took the top down for the first time and took a long cruise in 75║ weather!

I also got to use the Clover Patch Window Roll .... this thing is great! At first I was worried about the straps on the bag holding to the roll bar, but after a long drive they were still on there holding tight!

I'm hoping that dent wizard can fix it, I have a year of it free from the dealership I purchased the Jeep at.. They might refuse it due to the crease, chance the paint will crack.....

Not to my Jeep, so much as for my Jeep.
The wife and I took a ride down to Vineland, NJ and visited the Harbor Freight location down there. (3.5% sales tax)
Just short of 200 bucks later I had a handful of needful bric-a-brac, and a BUNCH of tools for my offroading tool bag.
I couldn't resist a cheap angle grinder and sawzall type saw with some blades for some upcoming mods too.

A very good day.

I went on the highway and I could see it moving a bit in the wind which annoyed me cause maybe i thought i came loose again but it was tight. How's yours holding out? Make sure it's on their good.
by the way, it is holding up great. it's not loose, guess I must have got a good hold of it while tightening it the first time. it does wiggle in the wind a bit, but I can't even see if from driver's side unless I bend forward. just fyi.

Paintless Dent Repair is what they are doing... if they say they need to buff and polish RUN from that moron doing the work. I've been dealing with a guy in Charleston, SC who has been doing paintless dent repair for more than 13 years (maybe more). He has worked on 2 of my vehicles over the last 6 years and has done a PERFECT job every time without buffing and messing up the paint or clear coat.

Only in extreme circumstances and major creases are painting and buffing needed. Ask around. It is worth paying for to have it done right the first time.

edit: from the looks of your dent, that is an easy fix that should take no more than 1/2 an hour to an hour to fix properly. That dent looks very similar to one i had on my old Honda.
