Haha...yeah, i was happy to get mine done. I couldnt even align mine anymore since my tierods n stuff were so bad.

heres the steering system i put in:

IRON ROCK OFF ROAD: Heavy Duty Over the Knuckle Steering TJ/ZJ/XJ

The guy that did all the stuff for me yesterday had one already prepped and ready to install...

Definitely happy with how it turned out. Steering is awesome, front shafts are perfect, 4.88's are amazing, and the new rear is a beast. Only thing i need to do now is put in a SYE since the new rear axle raised it up another inch and i'm getting some vibes around 2k rpm in 2nd and third...

The sye goes in in about 2-3 weeks (tomwoods cv shaft as well)

and umm...going to put in some 3/4" or 1" spacers in front to level it out

Ok I know this is "What I did to my TJ today" but I just got a light bar and was wondering if anyone has or knows of a wire diagram to wire the light bar up. I think I need a relay and want to run a switch to it also, anyone have any ideas?

plastidipping

last Saturday I plastidipped my flares and milkjugs. Afterwards I decided to replace the signals. Stealthed my wheels yesterday and installed the turn signals today.

What does stealthed mean? Is it just plastic dipping them?

Today I....

ignored my TJ while I cleaned up my wife's new patriot. You can see him in the background, alone and ignored.

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7ex...it?usp=sharing

At least the wash n' wax combo came out pretty good. It looks nice and shiny. I bought ' The Absorber ' and was disappointed with it's performance, so if anyone had it on their minds to buy, I'd look somewhere else.
