Chopped the exhaust off after the muffler and added a turn down, to free up some axle space..

AWD's should do ALL tires at once

For proper performance and safety, anyone and everyone should do all 4 tires at once, regardless of their drive train.

^tire salesman?haha
that is a terrible and broad statement.
awd-you should do 4 at a time unless you like buying VCs

everything else- its ridiculous to say somone needs to buy 4 tires if they blow one out but they should be replaced in pair and kept on the same axle, then keep the good one as an emergency spare

Well yeah, if one blows out you obviously don't need to replace all 4. I'm saying that because of all the people I see that replace just their front tires on their cars before winter, ignorant to how important your rear tires really are, even in a FWD vehicle. I guess it may not directly apply to our Jeeps, but it is important.

really if you keep them rotated at proper intervals they should all wear the same, unless there is another problem.

Trimmed the front fenders and checked the flex, high-lift all the way lifted and the tire still on the ground. I might be wrong but i dont really see a need to trim the rear. i looked all over lowes home depot and trator supply for somthing to cover the sharp edges and make the cut look clean could not find nothing decide to go to auto part store to pick up a can of undercoating to cover the pinch seem i hammed flat and found this Was gonna have to settle with BLING chrome, then i found black and was like score

Trans came out. Now I gotta rebuild it and find a way to put it back in. I think I need to get a bigger jack or a trans jack.
As you can see I used an extra tire that I had to help it down to ground.

Lowering to ground.




Now laying on ground.

Well my Jeep told me good morning all bright and early as the oil pressure sending unit broke in half and sent oil everywhere. Making me fix it in the parking lot at work.

But I now have front and rear adj. trackbars, steering stabilizer, rear upper adj. control arm, extended brake lines, and my rims. Just waiting on the rest of the control arms, shocks, springs and tires.
