I found things get louder. Sounds like $h!+ is on the verge of rattling apart and I say to myself, I'll fix it when it breaks.

When following another vehicle on the roadway, with a turn signal constantly blinking, that makes you check to see if yours is off.

You break the rear shock mounts from both the axel and frame and construct new ones.

When you order a lift kit and wait for it to come. Get tracking number and it will be there tomorrow... Tomorrow comes and you get a small box with just the steering stabilizer. A week later you receive 3 springs on Friday, so you lift the front end. Monday comes and the lost spring arrives, so your working on it and while removing rear driver's spring, it breaks at the front mount. Now I can really convince my wife it is a safety issue ever time I need parts.

LOL. Been there. Or when the guys at the parts store give you a funny look when you ask for parts from a 78 ford pickup, 85 chevy HEI, A battery that does not match the 89 YJ number they pull, and why you bought an entire case of PB blaster. For the second time in a month. O yea and you still get suckered into the fuel stabilizer on sale at the counter.

lol Nebraska. Agreed I avoid Chinese stuff like the plague. I love getting into it with people like Collins teacher. If Jeep goes to china I will loose what little respect I have for them. Besides they are already "made" there. Just assembled here.
