Just throwin it out there, with 2" of suspension, you probably won't need your sway bar. I do still have my track bar up front (too lazy to take it off and see how it rides) but the sway bar might not be neccesary. Maybe when i take my track bar off i can tell you how it rides, just some food for thought.

Everything else sounds great, i also want some booms but promised myself not to spend money on the jeep this summer, maybe if i sell some of my old crap or birthday money. Looking forward to the progress.

PB Blaster is a penetrating oil you spray on old rusted nuts, bolts, joints, stuf like that to help break things loose. Imagine it as a super version of WD40.

I mix 50/50 ATF and Power Steering fluid and put it in a compressed air bottle. Works great for freeing rusty hardware!

Not necessary for any driving? I wasn't really planning on putting on sway bar discos, but I figured i'd add it to the list. Herculiner would be good, I dont have any carpeting now. I'm also planning on putting in 2 pioneer 4x6 speakers in the front and maby a sound bar. I also forgot to put up some other work i've done

Installed a VDP center console

Put on the 2 tow hooks in front

Well some say you will need the front track bar for highway driving. Like i said once i have the time to remove the front track bar i would be more than happy to report how it handles. I do mostly back country roads 50 at the max most of the time, maybe 60. Sounds like a busy summer, look forward to the build. I know that next summer could be busy for me, when my 33's run out i am getting 35's.
