How bad are your control arm bushings?

Supposed to get my TPS from Kolak today (which I did). Tracking number said it was suppposed to be delivered today. And it said it was delivered at noon. Its small enough to put in the mail box, so I checked there first. Nothing. Look at all the doors outside. Nothing. So at this point I'm like wtf. Then I say to myself if its in my neighbors mailbox ima be pissed (my house is 36, neighbors is 26, mail has gotten mis deliverd a couple times before). Low and behold, there it is. USPS drivers...*******es...

Matt is always telling me how your niner barks second, and now seeing it on video is awesome. Care to give more specs on the tranny kit? Name brand? How much? etc. I bet Matt always cracks a smile when you bark second lol
The shift kit setup is whatever Martin uses in the Msaine street/strip valvebody (I think it was somewhere in the $300 - 400 range). As far as the TB, it probably won't do a lot, but it might help out a little on the top end, mostly from the cleaned up air horns around the bores. I might just get a 50mm, I'm not sure yet. Also, there's a guy that sells them for under $150, IIRC, so the cost isn't too bad.

EDIT: No headers for me yet, still on stock manifolds. At some point over the summer I might do headers if money / availability allows.

I used a ball joint removal kit and a bunch of assorted hardened washers. Also I drill them with a quarter inch bit all the way around and then pressed as much out as I could. Then the wire wheel took care of the rest. Whatever you do don't try to melt the rubber!

I got my username changed (from McCloudsWJ) to reflect the newest Jeep. Also requested a build sheet from Jeep and did some more shopping for parts.
