You can run in FWD, but keep the speed below 50. Honestly, I'd only do it if it meant getting home.

That's the bracket I installed. You'll need to pick up some 5/16 (I think) stainless bolts, washers and lock nut. It doesn't come with mounting hardware. The holes in the bracket are slightly smaller...

If I do anything while being winched I just put it in 4LO, put it in gear and don't touch the gas. Let the torque assist as it'll be moving about the same speed as the winch.

I bought them on Ebay. Think I paid $300 for the set.

That being said, if the pattern and cutoff wasn't good I wouldn't be using them. Which is why I adjusted them next to a real set of JWS....

Sometimes MT's just shimmy a little at certain speed ranges. My MTR/K's shimmy a little from 45-55. Everything is straight on my rig. Just the way it is.

I went with the knock off JW's. My friend has the real ones. We sat in a parking lot and adjusted them against a wall. Patterns were damn near identical with no left side bleed on either.

5100's will stiffen your ride up. For sure. And a level kit on the front will remove the rake.

I think you're on the right track for what you want.

Also, if you want some stock Rubi shocks...

They use a machine to measure the color of the paint and it's computer mixed to match perfectly. High end body shop here in Charlotte did this on my '03 Audi S4. Could not tell the difference between...

larger tires will change your speedo and shift points. You'll want a AEV ProCal to adjust the tire size in the Jeep's ECU. Also to turn off TPMS if you don't move the tire sensors or get new ones...

I'd take it to a body shop that does spectrophotometer image matching on the color. Even if it's slightly faded they can match the fade instead of going by factory color code.

You'll be unsatisfied in several months, wrack up untold amounts of credit card debt and wind up with a completely modified Jeep by years end. :)

Both of those trades will be auction fodder. The dealer knows this and is risking a loss on the trades. So they aren't going to come down a whole lot on the Jeep.

That'd be the rear door stop. There are beefier aftermarket ones.

Just remember, dealer incentives are usually added back on via "document fees, pre-delivery inspection, transport fee, etc". They don't give you $5000 off without tacking $5000 on somewhere else.

I hate to break it to you, but you either have a bad wiring harness (shorted or loose connection) or a TCM that's on it's way out. In other words the added performance from the tune is causing your...

I wouldn't waste my time or money on boosting the 3.6 or 3.8. Neither engine was designed for it. Compression ratio is too high, internals won't hold up, tuning the transmission to play nice with the...

Hose away.

Does the sound get worse or go away when the A/C compressor is running?

Maybe pull the belt and rotate the pulleys by hand and see if you can feel which one is causing the noise.
