Not needed with the IRO front LAs. Mine are still on there and don't get in the way at all.

OT: Mon - Installed my front driveshaft in the 4.0 so it's officially a 4x4 again. Tues - removed steering damper and it's shot to crap, also found slop on the knuckle on passenger side with the OTK steering setup. Turns out I somehow forgot to ever install a damned tapered sleeve - WTH?? Scrounging for a tapered sleeve and need one asap. Can always make one in a pinch since I have some bad TREs laying around.

Hhmm, I figured after a couple wheeling trips they would be bent to hell from the long arms binding up on them. Learn something everyday

Forged some outer bands of "isaac" to hit up harbor freight store for the engine stand and leveler to make the swap easier!

Went to the junkyard today...

4 ZJs there... I never realized how nice the Limited interior was!

The crazy thing is that two of the junkyard ZJs were in better shape than mine Had I had the time/money, I'd swap the interior of a Limited into my Laredo.

I picked up new speakers and some emblems. I was going to take the two front tow hook assemblys from an Orvis, but there were no bolts at all, and I figured I'd be better with my KOR rad support. Also wanted to take a 93-95 header panel and grille but didn't have enough time to get everything off. Maybe next time!
