Perhaps you have an automatic? My 99 manual original skid plate did not have anything you could remove and "bolt-on" - It was an integral part of the entire plate. I know the automatics do have the...

Front or rear? In either case, there's no "check" required. If there's no gear oil seen dripping out of the front axle at the inner C and you don't see any suspicious patterns of fluid being...

What do YOU want to do with the Jeep? Is it a trail runner, rock crawler, beach toy, etc? You need to fill in more specifics. You could spend the whole $4K on one new axle (Like a RockJock 60),...

You realize he is looking for the inner shifter boot that seals the tub from the outside environment and not the outer (visible) shifter boot.

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...

Those look nice on both Jeeps, but both of you have fenders that flare out on the sides. Mine are completely flat, so the slider would look a little strange (to me) ending in the middle of the...

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...
