Honestly, buy a stock one then you know that nothing has been done improperly. Then just drive it as is for a while to get a feel got it. You really can't go wrong with many brands, I'm not a fan of rough country... But that's about it, so just do research on anything you are thinking about buying there is plenty on information out there

Thanks for the compliments. Really not for sure what I have invested, traded my truck for her and sold the old YJ. I now have a company truck that I tow it to Jeep events. It only has 28,000 miles on it and is an 06. Going for long arm upgrade, regear to 4:88's and chromoly axles all around. Then I'll see what is left in the budget....

At least you got to enjoy the weather a little bit. I went to terre haute yesterday and it was raining about 4 hours earlier than Laffy.

It depends if the tires are directional or not. Most tire that are street are not. So you just want to reverse the direction of the rotation and perfer to move front to back and vise versa. If you have directional then your stuck front to back only.

Painted my headlight bezels black, sanded my fender flairs a little, and *hopefully fixed a leak coming into my evap box.

Slow sundays at the firehouse are good work days.
