Yes and make sure you test fit them. I didn't assuming they would bolt right up and they didn't. Took a lot of hammer time.

My rear shocks are leaking so I'm hoping to replace them. I have a set of jk shocks sitting around but I don't know if the length will be an issue. They fit with a little modification but I don't know if I'll bottom out my shocks if I put the on with the stock tj springs and a 2" body lift

Thanks for the compliments! Nice to hear after it fighting me for the last 3 installs. A lot of blood sweat and things thrown. Haha

Rainy day

Well the rain prevented me from taking her out but hopefully we can go muddin' this weekend. Decided to change the oil, remove the POs decals, cleaned the inside and put some new seat covers on.

Installed my new rampage frameless top. The install went pretty good. I like the top with the little storage pockets above the visors and the window storage under the main roof.

Your drag link and your track bar need to be parallel to each other. They have to be for the axle to travel up and down smoothly. Stare at the front end and imagine it going up and down and you will see. By not having them parallel you have kinda trianglated the linkage and it will cause binding.

Finished my center console, in spite of getting rained and hailed on while finishing up

I ended up going the bedliner route.

At least now I have a place to toss my drain plugs.


My headlight bezels were looking pretty ratty, so I touched them up. While I was at it, I've had a broken light that I haven't replaced because I'm wanting to get LED's. I removed the rest of the broken glass and made a little block off plate for it



Getting hailed on really wasn't that bad. I pulled under a tree when it started pouring, so most of it stayed off of me. After a few minutes, lighting struck really close by, and I realized I was sitting under a tree during a thunderstorm like an idiot. Time for fat boy to run to the house

Taking her to the offroad shop this morning. Got something "funky" going on in the front end when I steer to the right. Clunking/popping type noise.

Found out that the noise is just some of her old suspension parts that need refreshed and how I need new rear wheel bearings. AND a new steering box....which has been leaking for awhile. They want to see me put on a PSC steering box that'll save me down the road. Anyone using one?
