GrewGruxKing Attachment 1492993

Not today, but installed my TF 2.5 with front monster track bar, rancho 9000s, rancho drop brackets, and exhaust spacer. Drives better than stock. Took it down to the jeep dealer for a comparison photo and hoped to catch a glimpse of the 2015 tank color. No joy.

Also, installed my new custom shift knobs, compliments of Big Sarge on here. He does outstanding work and I will recommend him to anyone 1000 times over.

ArmyofMike Re-soldered my CB antenna ground to the antenna base...after wheeling on Saturday, I drove straight into my garage with the antenna a mast...it bent at the spring, but enough to break the ground wire free.

Easy least to fix. Actually seems to work better now!

cannonballgsu Installed some Synergy adjustable lower control arms. Rides much much better now that I have fixed my caster problem.

I would have loved to go to the Northridge open house. It was a little far to drive from Toronto though. Glad to hear you had a good time.
Yesterday 10:02 AM
Chunkeydunkin And finished, just need to wire up and install the antenna. Not the greatest looking fab job but as a first I'll take it!

I miss wheeling there. Its an amazing place! If you get a chance, check out ih8rds.com, or you can look her up on facebook. She leads some pretty amazing wheeling adventures, and knows that whole area of california like the back of her hand.

8months old and there were spots on the welds. Did the bits I could see, will be having another go in the spring.
Try using WD 40 I spray all the axles at least once a month,keeps them looking new.

On the right. I didn't rotate all 5 on my 33s. Went to 35s and practically gave away a brand new 33.

Rotate that sucker in there and get rid of them all when the time comes. And after the new set comes, still do it because there are many good brands of tires out there that you may want to try and if you change brands, you'll be stuck with that one tire to get rid of......unless you find the perfect tire for your needs on first go and don't plan on changing brands ever.
Thanks, and I will most likely change the tire size! I sold the stock Willys black rim + tires at the 500 mi mark and replaced all 5 already with 315/70 R17 Duratracs, luv these. But now that I've changed the axle gears to 4.56 last week, I'll most likely get the GY MTR 35x12.5R17 load range C, which are a true 35", from what I hear.

That looks great. Gives it a nice pickup truck like look.

If I could have seen the bestop element doors close up before I bought them, I would have went with the savvy off road or strike force zebra doors. Yours line up with the cargo area nicely.
Nothing about the element doors line up at all. Neither the steel panel or the soft uppers.
