Laggy Installed Currie HD Steering. Took way too long. I noticed a couple things:

Tie Rod sleeve clamps are a PITA. They only sit in one spot because of groove (groove for thru bolt). There should be a groove channel all the way around each end. Why, because if you get your toe perfect, you run a huge chance of clamp being in a position to hit something during ends of steering lock. I had to nut up the tie rod for toe adjustment, as it took me awhile to figure out the only way to free spin is to remove bolt, and free up the clamp. For $500 I want the ability to freely rotate the clamps. By some miracle, my steering wheel is centered so I don't need to mess with the drag link sleeve clamp. Which I assume has the same issue.

Steering stabilizer. Probably too short of a stroke. It pretty much bottoms out on right turn, Prob stretches too far on left turn. Silly.

I'm not a fan of it honestly. What I will probably do is cut a section out of what's left of my old fenders and use it to make an access panel that is bolted in place with some stainless Allen head bolts. Knock the mesh out and out the panel in its place.

Laggy ...serviced my HiLift jack. Took apart all except for removing climbing pins and their cross pins. Cleaned, then used white lithium grease in all the prescribed spots. Also, took my Slime comp06 portable compressor and clipped the cig plug, wired in a 30A fuse, soldered connections, epoxied and heat shrunk. The compressor actually filled from 12-28 in 4:30 on the 4th wheel. Not bad actually. I'm getting an onboard in the next month, but this will be a good backup.

Laggy Wheeled the shit out of it.
Came back at night and got to run my ProComp S4 Explorer lights. Wow. They are the 4led with Spot pattern. Mounted on my bumper. Unreal light for the price. Eventually I'm gonna move them to the pillar and bumper mount flood pattern HID's. Either Hella Optilux 4" or ProComp Explorer 9". I'm liking this lighting stuff.

I was about to do an HID retrofit for the headlights, bi-xenon projector style...but I think I'm skipping that for now. I can get way more off-road lighting for the money.

Audibahn Rewired my hardtop pigtail to work with the older 10pin plug using a harness from a Dodge Neon.

Those look great! What paint/prep did you use?

The one I had to replace was badly mistreated by the po. I don't think they believed in oil changes. I didn't even have it a year...every other jeep engine I have had was bulletproof.

Just curious
RK is a great brand if you want to put it on and go wheel, but if you want the most travel and everything possible nothing ever is going to beat custom that is designed around your rig, tire size, etc
