Finally got around to drilling and tapping my JKS disconnect pegs for when I disconnect them. Figured since I needed to lube the disconnects, I'd go ahead and lube up the front end. Ordered a set of extended rear sway bar extensions and novak TC shift bracket from Gerald at Savvy. Can't wait to try that thing out. From being under my Jeep today, it looks like I'm going to be using a lot of PB Blaster on the stock linkage to get it off. Those bolts are nasty full of rust.

Don't know how to double quote? Can't beat the look of halfs how they follow the height of the rear quarters.Plenty cool enough with top down and no retarded brackets to gain mirrors.I think full doors should only be used with hardtop only.Just my 2 cents.

I believe so I think the only one that would be different is the 97 with the slider hvac controls

Took it to the tire shop since my Bridgestone Revo Duellers thread is starting to crack...on all four tires and I just got them in 2008.

Probably be getting the Firestone Destination next month,seems tire sales are better during superbowl week.

Just got done replacing my dash lights and AC/Heater slider lights with Green LEDs. Also replaced my wiper motor and tried replacing my backup light switch but couldn't get the old switch off the transmission... Have to tackle that again tomorrow!
