Presents for my Jeep
 
Christmas has come and gone and its time to spend my christmas money on presents for myself, and by myself.. I mean the Jeep.

1) AEV / Nth Degree 2" Coil Spacers
-How hard are these to install? What tools will I need to do the install?
-Will I need new bump stops to be able to run these?

2) Oil and Filter Change
-Was thinking about trying Royal Purple oil and filter, which I notice is a little
more pricey. Comments on the brand? Worth the money?

3) Herculining and Undercoating
-Tips, tricks, suggestions?

Sounds like a good christmas,

Coil spacers are real simple to install, they may come with instructions, if not there are a few threads kicking around on how to install them.

I was lucky enough to have a girlfriend who loves me so much because there was a XRC 8,000 lb winch (mile marker) under my my tree this year. When we went to my parents house for x-mas there was a Rokmen DIY Rear bumper under their tree!

I'm super exited, i just need to order a winch mounting plate on monday and weld up the rear bumper

For the 2" spacers, I just put a set of 2.25" ones on my LJ last night.
For the front shocks, I had to cut the nut holding the shock shaft at the top. Otherwise the shaft would just spin, even with Vise-Grips holding it.
I was replacing the shocks anyhow, so this was no problem.
Also, had to remove the lower control arms and sway bar on each corner to get the axle low enough to get the spacers & springs in.

Once we were done, the rear axle was shifted about 2 or so inches to the passenger side, but once we got it down off the lift and on solid ground, it straightened back out.

All in all it wasn't too tough of a job.

I'd save your money on the Royal Purple...if you wanna run synthetic, I'd run a cheaper brand name synthetic. I don't think the benefits you'll see from Royal Purple (as opposed to another brand name synthetic oil) will justify the cost. I used to run Mobil 1 in my truck...they're running dino oil in my Jeep (dealership changed it when I bought it) but I will probably switch over to full synthetic once it's due for a change.
