IRO lift finally arrived! Now if I could only get the front shock lower bolts undone I'd be golden.

Over the weekend: put on new front hub bearing assemblies, front axle u joints, and front pads and turned the rotors.
Today: fixed/covered some of the surface rust under the jeep and undercoated it.
Either tomorrow or Wednesday I will install my new header (manifold cracked, who would've thought) and full 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust
And not jeep related but next week I will be helping my father pull the 5.9 out of the Durango and rebuild it. Kind of doing a mild mod rebuild

Well found out my head gaskets are leaking oil. Awesome. So since nearly everything is leaking lol I'm gonna go for a 5.9 swap in the beast.

Been working on my intake manifold the last couple days. Got as far as I could, but I needed to order an egr valve gasket, so hopefully it will be running tomorrow.

Got my jeep forum stickers, and my TJ fuel bezel in the mail today. Didnt have time to install the bezel yet, but should be able to get that done on Wednesday or Thursday after work. I also pulled the trigger on a set of 33's which I'm super stoked about and those should be here on Thursday.

Put in the new ignition coil. Doing great.
Still feeling a little sluggish after it warms up a bit so I'm thinking of replacing the upstream O2 sensor.

Pay day is Friday too so ill possibly get an adjustable rear trackbar.

I smoothed them out with a dremmel, but I didn't cut them down because of the mixed opinions I've heard whether it helps performance or hurts it, and I didn't cut the divider out because at the bottom of it is a molded in channel that the egr gasses go through. It exits right in the middle of the intake, so if I cut it out, it would just enter through the side of the intake, and I didn't know if the gasses would be biased toward one or two cylinders causing it to run bad, so I just left it there.

There is an Aluminium Grill Mesh 33Cm X 100Cm Net Netting Protective Car Vent that you can find in autozone or any other car parts store, they sell you as 1 piece, simple cut and shape with your hand once you placed in the original, then yo can use a 22 wire to hold it to the original vents and thats it.

I bought some factory tow hooks that I can't use, because I have an arb bumper.

Anyone want to buy some tow hooks?
