Anything else you guys think I should pick up before Wednesday? I have a camping/wheelin trip planned for this coming weekend and want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before I get there so this project goes as smooth as possible and so I can make sure the jeep is ready to roll up to the hills by friday.
Be prepared not to go on that wheeling trip lol

I've heard many people snapping multiple that they have to order..
Something may go wrong...

Good luck I hope you finish! 😜

No. I don't know who you've been hanging around with, but if a 17 year old can install a 3.5 lift with absolutely zero prior knowledge and not f*** anything up, I'm pretty sure he will be good for his camping trip this weekend.

Today after work I changed out the PCM in my wife's ZJ. I just changed capacitors in it on Saturday.... Today, wouldn't start... No way, no how
Put in a JY unit I got today on my lunch break for FREE!!! Fired right up!!!

Bled the rear brakes again on her ZJ as well. Changed out the D35 last week and just couldn't get a pedal out of it.
They'll put you through the windshield now!!

Then I changed pads, hardware, & wheel cylinders on my ZJ. Bled those after and they're just as good as the wife's!!

I'm using the 2sp controller. People were whining about the the high amp start up of the taurus fan worrying about it killing 40amp relays. So he came out with the 2sp2 with 80amp high speed relay.

I don't have any troubles with my 2sp.

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Thanks! It's a little rich for my blood right now. I think I'll manually control the fan for the time being and eventually get one of these. I'll install a kill switch where the 3 position rocker will be so I won't have a gaping hole somewhere.

Thanks for the confidence boost, this will be the second lift I've done but the first one was like 10 years ago so I'm pretty sure I'm just over thinking the whole thing but I'd rather be over prepared then run into issues I could potentially avoid. And worse case scenario my the zj can stay at home and we'll just take my girls jk. I was just trying to get one more rig rollin because my buddy is too scared to take his bro dozer up the trail were gonna take to get to our camp site.

I was talking about the DC controller for it. I already bought a brand new fan for $90 something rather than getting a JY fan.

Not yet, I couldn't quite fit them in the budget but since I decided to settle for finding a decent set of used shoes instead of the brand new mtr's I wanted ill be upgrading to IRO ca's all the way around in the next couple months, I just gotta save up the rest of the cash and decide if I want to go with adjustable or fixed ca's.
