Waiting is the worst part!!!! LIFT
 
So I got the Lift ordered: TeraFlex 3" and Bilstien 5100 Shocks. Now comes the waiting. Its the worst part. I want to slap them 35" tires on i got.
On top of that I was able to get my hands on the Premium stock 6 Disc Radio $45 on ebay perfect condition. Got that installed this week end. Also waiting for the U connect to get here. So the waiting game continues.

I know the feeling. I have a ton of armor on the way. Are you doing the install yourself?

They say home ownership is a good thing, not for me, it's taking all of my money. I want a lift and armor, and 35s. Damn this old house

You've only begun to wait. :D

Wow! my first post! At least it will be quick for you guys! I am from Jersey but because of work I live in Korea now.... I purchased brand new 2010 Rubicon CRD(Diesel). I ordered few exterior things on ebay, and I gotta wait about month for it to clear customs in Korea... Sigh....

JK's don't have slip yokes, amigo :) And they ALL have the 3.8L V6 in these great 50 states- Mark W.

Im going to re-gear to probably 4.88, When I do that I plan to get elockers and get the CV Style Drive shaft installed since they will be torn apart anyway. Im going to attempt to install the lift myself. I just need to find a Spring compressor unless someone know another way to do it.

I'm pretty sure you can rent one at Autozone. The old ones will come out fine without one, but you will probably need it to get the new ones in.

Where in Jersey are you from? I'm originally from Bloomingdale. Oh, and since we can't get a diesel in the US, we pretty much all hate you. :D

Hi there! I am from Fort Lee! I lived 5 minutes from Geo. Washington bridge! Diesel is great! But... since in Korea, Foreign car prices are insane, I had to pay close to 40K for 2door 2010 Rubicon.... crazy I say...

Don't get a strut-type compressor- use one of the kind that you can put inside the coil, and twist it to compress it- PITA, but on longer coils it'll help- Mark W.
