You had it bent, or bent it yourself?

I had it bent otherwise I would have kinked it cuz it's to heavy of a pipe! It does help to know a person that works in a metal shop! They can do stuff for you for a lot cheaper!

Easier than I expected. The alignment went pretty smooth and I tripple checked the measurements. Straightening the wheel was a bit trickier since I kept ovrershooting center. A little bit of pb blaster and voila, I was turning the adjusting sleeve by hand.

I was lucky enough that it turned out to be perfectly straight after doing my toe in

Today I put on stickers with the young one... Tomorrow I'll be removing factory stickers, painting wheels, installing a C.B., Locking rear storage, GPS, painting the grille, replacing a fog light bulb, and chasing down a mis-fire in cyl. #2.

Last night I sold the YJ...

Ha ha I wish. Who knows when was the last time the PO aligned the thing. Toe in was pretty bad when I did it. I do have some slack on my steering box/column though.

It's going to be going over the stock bumper. I want something different and like things that not everybody has. And thanks to an ex wife money is tight. Lol I got the bumper for free so figured I would try it out. And I like the look of them.

Let me know if you find a solution to your misfire... i've had one for months that i cant seem to fix, changed ignition coil rail and plugs... and thats where my ideas to fix it stopped.... it seems to only be when i'm decelerating. I have an automatic trans. I tried posting a link on here as to "What causes Misfires" but I came up with a whopping zero responses.

All I got done today was painted the grille with the Rust-o-leum bed liner, and pulled of the factory "wrangler", "4.0L", and "Jeep" stickers...

Still got a bunch to do... tube bumpers and fenders need to be welded up, Hood louvers need to be punched along with the 2 inch holes down the sides, Maltese Cross taillights and signals need to be mapped out and installed, Wheels need to be painted. CB, and GPS need to be installed where the stereo is (stereo to be removed and replaced with I pod hook-up), windshield mount the lights, and fix the fog light connection... It's a lot, but I'm havin' a blast..!
