Possibly some BB spacers too. To keep the potential rubbing to a minimum. Though I swear the PO already did that as I seem to already have a lot of room to grow with the my current 31s.
You have 10" rims?!?!

Anybody know a trick to getting a snapped bolt out? Its the rear upper driver side for the shock mount. Passenger side bolts are a whole different story. 14 years of rust has these things FROZEN.

Only 1 of the 4 bolts came out without a problem.

Lots of Pb blaster and easy outs? If you think it's going to break an easy out or backwards drill bit then probably just drill it. Since easy outs are like hardend steel? If you break one you can't drill it out as easily.

I soaked them with blaster. I'm pretty sure an easy out will snap off. Got one in the bolt last night, but the thing wasn't moving. Looks like I'll have to drill it all the way.

Drove her to work today. After work I am meeting a guy to buy a 4" long arm Sky Jacker lift for $250 that I found on Craigslist. Comes with quick disconnects, shocks, control arms, and coil springs. The only thing it didn't have was the transfer case drop kit. I think I will be alright though because I have a SYE already installed from the PO.

Drove mine to work so I can stop by a buddy's place and grind a rib off my solid diff cover that is interfering with my front track bar. Then if I have time tonight I'll be installing my anti rock front sway.

Now that would be a site to see... 10" rims with big old 33s or 33s.

Donks can go bigger on the rims, why cant Jeeps go smaller?

Of course it would probably dangerous as hell to drive

Installed Zone Offroad Sway Bar Links. I'm not mechanically inclined at all, so it took me all day to get all the tools and figure out how to put it all together, I don't know I'd say it was fun, but I'm proud of myself and how the TJ is pushing me to do this stuff.

The OEM sway bar link broke during my first time getting mud on the old girl, so a lot of firsts for me.

Put the soft top back up for probably the last time this season. High of 79 today, only 52 tomorrow. It doesn't get out of the mid 60's for the next 10 days with lows in the 30's. Topless through October 3rd, not too bad for Minnesota.

Debating whether I should take the jugs off my bumpers and if I should get a K&N intake. Already have a throttle body spacer on the beast. Hoping to get a lift and new tires before the snow!

You may want to do some reading, the TB spacer is pretty much useless and a K&N will yield no gains while letting my dirt into your engine.


Last night I was able to grind the rib on my solid diff cover so it clears the track bar now. Got everything prepped for my anti rock install tonight and just ordered an MBRP cat back for some muffler clearance with the TT I plan to do next month.

Take them off and put the MOPAR end caps on. Looks way better.

Molar end caps are useless. If you take the jugs off leave them open ended or cut them to look custom
