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

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!
