Boring, but necessary

My windshield washer tank had a slow leak near one of the pump motors - it was a rubber seal that has dried out and cracked. It was a cheap fix, but I just resealed it with RTV and it's holding well now.

I told you - a boring fix, but necessary.

Just decided to order stage 1 of the build. I got a pretty smokin deal

~Rough Country 4" long arm kit (full kit)
~Extended Brake lines (the kit comes with brake line relocation brackets but I won't use them)
~Adjustable rear track bar (I don't trust a bolt on extension bracket)
~1.5" wheel spacers (until I get my new wheels with the proper offset)
~2" coil spring spacers (if I like the height then I will get full coils)

Everything should be here by next Thursday. I already have the 4" RC lift. It's been on there for a year. It was put on by the PO. It has the stock front UCA but all the others are fixed but from RC. I'm not sure if that's normal but adjustables would have made it ride so much better.

I might wait to put on the coil spring spacers until the new tires come in.
Anyone have any words of advice before I dig in to this thing?

Replaced the driveside engine mount, and installed a new to me Rubicon Express adjustable front track bar(RE1600).

The bar is lighter than the heim joint itself. But I shouldn't need to worry about how strong it is because I don't go rock crawling or mudding so I shouldn't have to worry about it taking hard impacts or drops.

I like it a lot, looks awesome under there.
