I just made one :)

Mine was already cut from the previous owner, probably for the 2" body lift. I bought a generic shift boot from the local auto parts store for $20. It had a rectangular...

Personally, I don't really like the look of the Savvy sliders. I'm sure it's a good design, but from an appearance standpoint I'm not interested. In regards to the lead times on Shrockworks, that's...

At 12K you are looking at a pretty decent deal on a very well-built Jeep. The Dynatrac 44 is a huge value adder, too bad it doesn't have one in the back as well. I wouldn't worry too much about the...
