Good quality Dextron3 or 4 ought to do you just fine.
They are right do not drive over 6 mph or so in lo range.
Not that you want too, those lil boxes make some serious racket when you speed them up a bit. You'll love it crawling though, it's gonna feel like a whole new Jeep. How did the drive home go?.
If you have some wrenches and sockets in your tool bag then tomorrow put a wrench or socket on every bolt and nut under there to see if everything is tight as it should be

Joanzie's rear end must look better than I thought. I got picked up on the freeway Twice!! Rollin' with my top down, doors and windows off; BIG A$$ grin on my face..listening to GM "Precious Box"..and I hear this honking. I'm wondering if something is wrong..so I look at him...he's waving at me I throw him the peace sign....little ways later..HONK HONK again..he's asking me to pull over and giving me the "I want to call you signal" MmmmK No but thanks!!

2nd guy...just staring and then final smiles and gives me the

Joanzie was a major dude magnet tonight.

That axle is badass Looks tuff! Really glad this fiasco is over.

Ready for my Metalcloaks now

She drives pretty well. They took out my rear sway bar..will take a little getting used to. But I can tell the difference with the 4.88's and 35's.

OK, will pick some up. I'll plan on changing it in Sept when I install my Metalcloaks. If they aren't here by the end of this week, I'm going to call them and just make sure they'll be here by the week after. They're planned to go on Sept 6th weekend. I cannot wait to get those things on! They're going to completely change the look of my Jeep. Wait until you guys see pics So excited!!

Have you checked the web to make sure the MC fenders will work with your HardRock sliders? You might need to modify (clearance) the sliders a bit. Phone call to MC might answer this.

Id hate to see you get Joanzie half torn apart only to find out more mods are necessary to make things fit.

I'll call..think they'll know? I mean, there's so many different kinds of sliders out there. How could they possibly know every single one? I'm thinking they'd need to look at a pic or something. I don't know..but I'll call today.

If I do need to modify my sliders, what kind of tool does that take?? I can't imagine cutting my Rock Hard sliders

I'll take a pic of my fender/slider meeting place on my Jeep, post it up, and see what you think...

Anybody already know??

Second, I think you are golden. You might, probably will, need to trim the front of those sliders just a bit but otherwise, looks to me like you will be good.

I think a Call to Stan might answer that. Oh wait, he's on the Rubicon this week. Lucky Bastard. Lol. Well I guess MetalCloak better have the answer.

Looking at some before/after pics..It does look like some trimming is going to be required...like a couple inches to the seam. And I'm getting the Arched Cloaks
