Any of you guys here in Amarillo or close by? Just got my lift in and need some help installing it. This is my first go around and I have ZERO mechanical background what so ever!

Yeah unfortunately it is. I work for a railroad too, so my schedule is totally unpredictable. I think I might have to take a vacation day (or two) to make any of this to happen.

For the body lift rokmen has a video up on YouTube that gives perfect instructions. The SL is pretty easy. 4 shocks 4 springs. Installing the trac bars (if you got them) is a little more technical. And the control arms (if you got them) are easy if you know what length you want them.

Also, Toolman, I am looking for a small CB to put in the Jeep. I was thinking of the Uniden 410. Do you know of a better one? Its only about $40.

I just joined a local Jeep club & they wheel a lot of places in the area. As soon as I learn where they are, I'll share it with y'all

I'm on the mobile now, when I get to my laptop, I'll look it up & let you know. Uniden is a good brand though

Thanks. I know the Uniden and have had one in the past, I was just wondering if you knew of any about the same size that may work better. Thanks for the help!

Uniden pro250 XL is what I have I believe. It works quite well.

Thanks Kid, I will look at that one too. My expierence with CBs is limited to small Unidens and big Cobras. I don't want a big CB in the Jeep, just not enough space. I thought about a CB that has the controls in the mic, but those don't appeal to me. I've heard good things about them, but just not my kinda thing.

Then the one above is for you. It was recommended to me by Jerry. It's very compact. Has everything you need on it. Squelch 40 Chanel PA switch. Paired it with a 3' firestick antennae.

Ok guys........ sounds like its about time for a West Texas gal to give this thread some color!!!!!

If you guys ever get to take your jeeps anywhere..... you need to make your way to the Hill country... Llano, Texas!!!

There is this place called ToyLand. They have mud races, mud drags, jeep crawling, circle dirt track...... it is awesome!!!! The cash purse is usually GREAT!!!

Anyway......... you boys dont work too hard!!!
