liquidfluidity Pink - Mine had 33x10.50 M/Ts on it when I bought it. Didn't think I'd like the width but it's kind of nice to have everything under the flare - if you run stock rims.

Drilled frame drains along with filled my battery up.

Laggy Dropped the money on Bixenon Projector retrofit. 35w potted ballasts. 4300k bulbs.
The decision did not come easy, as I was liking at HID floods (Hella, KC, Pro Comp, etc). I decided that I needed on road and off road functional lighting. I have done a projector retrofit on my zx6r and it was revolutionary. I decided retrofit is the best option to add to 2 led cube spots and I'll be adding 2 led cube floods soon. Forward lighting will be done.

However there is no contact somehow of it going into gear. Any thoughts???

ben_ Washed it... I almost forgot what it actually looked like under all of that salt and other crap

IndianaBones Today I found out something special about the "3 inch lift" that was on my current Tj when I purchased it. Knew it was a bds, was told its 3". Finally measured and the fronts came out to 16.5 total. 4.5" lift. I knew something was fishy with that.

Nice to know. I now feel dumb and lucky at the same time.

anavrinIV Today I buttoned up my clutch swap and oil pan gasket replacement and changed the trans and transfer case fluids. I had a horrible rattle on clutch engagement that turned out to be loose springs in the disc, and the pilot bearing was completely shot. Last bit of maintenance should be the valve cover gasket but I'm not sure I have the energy at this point, the rest of the job wore me out.
