Nothing fancy. This is their entry level unit. I wanted XM, detachable face, and a usb flash drive. This thing actually has too many options for me lol. It sounds great.

Bought 2 control arms, front sway bar links, front sway bar bushings, and front UCA bushings. Would have bought all 4 front arms, but 2 got lost in transit between the store that had them and the store I work at. Once I get those arms, buy a Rusty's Offroad track bar and tie rod, and have some time to work on it, I can get this damn thing fixed. Well, that and find a new shock of the right size.

On top of all that, some of my stalling came back yesterday. I'm thinking water in a connector. Not fun. On top of all this, it needs a catalytic converter somethin' fierce.

I also installed my E code headlights, 65 watt Phillips bulbs and relay harness today. What a difference! Too bad both of my upper adjusters are busted.

I'm guessing that's where the original owner got the lights and harnesses. He sold his zj, but switched the lights first. So I got everything for $265 shipped, Including the bulbs.

Something is wrong with the oil pan. It should have a nice coating of oil on it.

Hope you pointed and laughed as you pulled him free!

Sry, most those guys are ****'s in my area. Mostly military. Messed up thing is when I see them in uniform I'm one of the first to say thanks for their service, but see them on the trails and their bashing on the Zj-Xj's.

OT: snapped a pic of a decal for another thread, then let it watch me take the wifes car to work.
