yeah my 1-2 is pretty hard sometimes, but then other times it just shifts like butter, I know it can't be my trans because when I got the zj the previous owner had just put a new trans in it

Behind the doorseal on the passengerside:

Debating on whether or to keep the front bumper cover on.

I will say, the Jeep runs about 10* cooler with it off hahhah

Also been having a fog light problem on the passenger side. Drivers side works just fine.

Just bought a test light and Grounded on the factory ground, touch power wire and test light lights up....

What does that mean?

Heck leave it off. If you wheel yours, the plastic will either get in the way or ripped off.

As for bumpers, no cover FTW. Definitely not putting mine back, ever.
I was lucky enough to find a complete set, brackets and all from a jy. $60.

Look forward to seeing the finished product. I am still trying to figure out how I'm going to mount mine. I have a temp mount right now.

Sold it for $300! That's $100 for every 100,000 miles it had on it.

STill Lifting.

Managed to get my adjustable front track bar from RE mounted....I think. Was getting dark so not sure the axle is exactly centered.

This seems to be a nice replacement for the stock unit but there were a couple issues when mounting it. Hopefully my headaches will help out someone else.

First: the original passenger side mounting bolt is too small for the new track bar bushing. If you follow the directions as stated and use the factory fasteners to re-install the new track bar I suspect you would get a serious case of death wobble as the track bar moved around that smaller bolt. Scary.

Second: The hole in the original passenger side mounting bracket is too small for the larger bolt that comes with the kit.

Solution: Drill baby Drill! Bought a half inch soft metal drill bit from AutoZone and made the holes bigger in the bracket.

Everything slid together easily after that.

Banged on the steering dampener a few more times and sprayed it with PB AGAIN!

I may be old and gray before that b*tch decides to come out.

Hopefully can get the rear lifted on wednesday and get my tires mounted. Will post pics when done.
