Should never have a need to disconnect the rear. It's easy to fully flex the rear axle.

I just think the truck lites look sick as well as the JW speaker but they are twice as much as TL that's one of my last steps to blacking out my TJ

Found a nail in my tire, luckily it only went in the tread and didn't puncture...

And noticed that my second dorman exhaust manifold in less than 3 months is cracked again. WTF? There has to be something causing it.

No, his rear sway bar is connected. I've only seen a handful of jeeps try it, and most don't do it for more than one or two trips. It's better left connected; however, thre is a new rear antirock connector for the rear....this sounds interesting!

Goodyear Wrangler authority tires? Mine were nail magnets! Had probably 5 that poked into the tread like that!

Nope, both the front and rear are connected there. I cant wait until i actually get rid of the bb and get a real lift so i will be able to disconnect.

Gave up and put the windows back in. I've had them out for weeks now, but the rain just won't quit here in SC. Got caught in 3 downpours. At least I can drive it now without looking at the forecast...

Headed into town to see if I can find a couple more cans of paint so I can finish my project. I got the last 2 cans Autozone had in that color and Advance does not carry that kind. Well just 2 more off brand auto stores to go. Sometimes it sucks living in a small town.
