BDS for 3.5" springs. But the 2.5" OME springs will give you as much as your sagged RC springs do now. So it's up to you.

Take the trac bars off. They aren't needed with leaf springs.

You can build those rocker switches from Waytek. They have all the pieces you need to build them how you want.

Edit: is there a way to multi-quote on the auto guide app?

My 2.5 OME springs gave me almost 3.5" of lift even after 3 months on the road.

I've been asking hubby for a while now to make something for me to hang my doors up while they are off the jeep. Well he has never gotten around to do it so today in over 105 degrees in the garage I decided to do it myself. Went to lowes and got some eye hook screws. I took up about the only wall space left so now hubby will have to find his own spot for his own doors

New rear seat belts, Gadsden Flag decal, unclogged rain drain hose, and started assembling tool kits using 2 5.56 ammo cans.

Does anyone know where I can find a magnetic socket holder less than 10 inches?

I swapped out my old air filter that was filthy for a reuseable one made by Spectre at Auto Zone. I also finally got my rotolock fittings from Kilby Enterprises for my york 210 compressor and installed them with a little teflon tape.

Well I have not done this yet but will in the near future, got a complete set of TJ axles front and rear for FREE! I will be swapping the front axles so I can eliminate the CAD/Posilock system on there now and I will have a spare set of rear axles! Life's good right now!

The best thing is the TJ axles u-joints are bigger and stronger then the YJ's so I will have a little stronger front end, not that my little 4 banger will stress them but you get the idea.

Had a new cat and muffler put on. Removed some.... extra exhaust stuff and passed emissions! And they said it couldn't be done with a weber 38/38...

I also finished up some electrical work and repaired my electric fan.

That is awesome. Where did you find a Jeep that had been sitting that long?
