What I did to my TJ today

Installed my seat risers.... love 'em! Didn't take long, had a really weird bolt holding the drivers side on, soon as I found something that gripped it I slapped em right on. Busted a few knuckles, but we are good to go now! Lil more leg room, plus I can see further over the hood.

Next install may be a winch, or maybe selling the bushwackers and getting flat fenders.

Changed my oil, mounted my SB compressor and tried to figure out this new bump induced death wobble Ive got now.

Track bar is good, tie rod and ends good. Seams like there is an issue with the passenger side wheel some where. Ball joint or maybe the hub. Something seams a lil sloppy in there. Not a happy man. Also sounds like I may be in the same boat as those who have found piston skirt in their oil pan. Im not dropping the pan tho, EFFFFFF IT. lol. Driving it till it blows then swapping it out later.

I drove mine 40k miles with a broken piston skirt...
I was just easier on it, let it warm up a little longer and kept the revs down some.

I moved my solenoid box from over the winch to inside the engine compartment, just in front of the air box.

Installed my pyramid sub. Like many others have said, it won't win any competitions, but at least I don't have to hear all of the burping and farting from the COMPLETLY blown factory sub anymore. Thanks WF for the tips!

Removed cai due to it rubbing hood. It is the aem brute force that came with throttle body spacer and i think that combined with my brown dog motor mounts pushed it up to high. I have been chasing down a body vibration and think this may be the cause, we'll see. If not it goes back on, if so it will go for sale.
