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.

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.
