Oh nice I just found some 4-6" RE springs. I guess the guy doesn't specify which one it goes to. Probably the same ones as the 4.5" xj. $60 new. Probably won't get there in time either.

Fought with it again and am still having trouble getting the front track bar off. I'm just going to pull the mount off the body in the morning to get better access, I've done all I can with it on the Jeep (and still can't get the cotter pin out).

It's no wonder WJ Overlands had a hydraulic fan.

I'll call it yesterday but finally finished install on a full metal radiator, re did the hoses using Gates Thermal Heatshrink clamps (on my switch housings) a P/S pump with a metal pulley. Oh and a thermostat as the PO did not bother to leave me one. Runs quieter now with the swapped in p/s pump.

Sitting on the side of the road at the moment, with a locked up water pump. Guess I'll put my window tinting plans on hold for a couple more weeks.

Started cuttin all the brackets off of the 8.8, in the process I learned to use diablo cutting wheels instead of cheap northern tool ones. The diablo seemed to slice through the steel a lot quicker.
