rjpark36 Definitely go with the sprinkler underneath for a while (park it in the grass to keep the driveway from getting all mucked up) and then pressure wash. You can also take the tires off to get a little better access to the coils and ends of the axles. Probably also wouldn't hurt to get some grease under the front end.

Also, I don't believe the phone/pen holder in the cup holder comes stock........

luckyAD80 Still need to see if it has spacers, but haven't had time to work on it lately. Can anyone tell me the size dimensions of my wheels?

And are the JKS discos the bolt-in or weld-in kind?

Thanks!

I'll check tomorrow and upload a picture (if I remember haha). I just pressure washed a little underneath (in the rain, which sucked), but don't remember seeing anything. I didn't really look though. Alright, it just looks a little taller than stock to me... not sure why.

That's exactly it! Haven't used it yet because no snow in virginia, but I'll post a review after i use it. Hoping to make some money this winter plowing driveways.

You should probably check to make sure they are still in place, but nope, it's all designed to be exposed to the elements anyway (it's under the vehicle). The mud around me is nasty clay mud, and sticks to everything. Anytime I go through it, I put the sprinkler under the front for about 4 hours, then move it farther back for another few hours. Definitely do it somewhere you don't mind a mess. Here's what I bought just for this.

Look for the style that shoots up and fans back and forth, not the traditional ones that shoot horizonal.

Glad your cleaning the underside. If you were going to ask the weight of a stock TJ, answer would depend on with or with out mud. Nice desriptive photo's. good job.

Yeah it looks like just the speakers were changed.

Okay cool. So is it real quick and easy to use the JKS disconnects? I modified the front bumper, whoops! Probably shoulda mentioned that.. it's for attaching a snow plow. And yup! - it's a 4cyl.. i posted some more (kinda blurry sorry) pics of the axles at the end... how do I confirm this?
