Good old big 3 upgrade
Like you said, usually audio guys are the ones who do it, but I can see how it would benefit a jeep with extra lights and/or a winch.

You can get them at just about any pilot flying j Ta or petro truck stop. There about 25-29 dollars depending if there on sale or not.

Thanks Srad600!! As someone else mentioned, they are available at any decent size truck stop. you can probably get them on Ebay or Amazon as well, but that one was picked up at the TA truck stop in Green Castle, PA.
Hubby is a truck driver so it was his contribution to the TJ LOL.

yeah.. there for disconecting your sway bar quickly.. disconecting your sway bar gives you much more front axle flex then with your sway bar connected.. Articulation is good news on uneven surfaces when offroad

2 things
first can you post pics from a Droid phone on here?

Secondonce my winch switch from 12volt guy comes and I finish my regular switch panel next to it I plan to idiot proof my power usage by putting a set of panel lights in my daystar upper console so ill see I left something on. I worked as a vol. Firefighter and am going back soon when your in a hurry and leave your fog and blue light on depending on the job you may come back to a dead battery. Same as if you have young kids and are going to store/playplace whatnot

There should be an attachments button when you reply. Click that add pic wait for it to download, hit the back bottom, then type message and send.
Or photobucket is always an option

So you can do this. It allows the front axle to articulate more so you can keep 4 tires on the ground.
