Just finished installing my driver side UCA that the PO had taken off at some point and never put back on. What a PITA!

Thanks again MoabRubi!

Also painted my .50 cal ammo can underhood toolbox and reinstalled.

Pic is without lid, I have since put it on. Its a great place to keep my recovery shackles, and winch remote, and a few other goodies.

Got my new Terraflex megashort SYE and Tatton driveshaft in the mail yesterday, now I am just waiting on my control arms from metal cloak and I will finally take full advantage of my tummy tuck.

Make sure you put the speed sensor ring on correctly. The outside taper should angle towards the main case.

would you post a pic from a little further away? do you have a 4.0? this looks like a great mod, but am having a hard time getting the picture of where this is mounted?

I have a filter that is like a standard one in the middle with a foam filter on the bottom and a metal screen on top I've had it for years and it is still clean not sure on the brand but I know it was a pretty penny and it is definitely worth it so I don't have to replace it.

Yea mine I don't have to replace, just need to clean it ever few 10,000 miles. Mine was $50 but is worth it for sure! It also has much nicer airflow than standard air filters? Your's is probably the same way!

I'm eventually going to upgrade my intake system anyway though, so I won't get much use out of this filter.

Was this a question? K&N filters are notorious for letting in dust and debris, better airflow doesn't have to mean cleaner (or even as clean for that matter). The stock filters are the way to go.

Got me rear rancho 9000 XL's on my baby. Did the front two a couple weeks ago. Love these shocks so much. Also for those on the fence about it there is a $100 mail in rebate when you buy four of them.

Oh whoops, I didn't mean to put the question mark.

But no, not a question. I've never heard anything bad about K&N filters and was recommended to the K&N so I went with it.

I guess time will tell for me, but so you've had bad experiences with K&N? I'm just generally curious. Because my Jeep is my first car so I'm learning the ropes as I go.

Thanks!

This is what I got its not cleanable to my knowledge but it hasn't gotten dirty after a few years of use.

Right there with ya, I used Morris 4x4 which does free shipping and they also price matched my4by.com. After the rebate I paid a total of $240 for all 4 shocks.

Got my fender beat back to as close as normal as it will get. Then bringing my jeep up to welding tomorrow to see if they can tack the fog light back on. Then as soon as its hooked up one of my friends is going to help me wore them so they'll finally work- after a year of owning my jeep.
