When i did mine i got all 6 front lights from amazon for $60 shipping and all and i didnt use the plastic clips or the adjusters. I used threaded rod, nuts, and washers and bolted them directly to my header panel since i had to replace it too. They are easy to adjust and rhey are more solid then the ball and socket joints with the adjusters.

Put some grease on the adjuster screws that the headlights mount onto. It made a HUGE difference when I installed my aftermarket ones, after breaking 3 of the clips.

I got them from partsgeek.com for $18 each w/lamps.

I'm guessing I'll have difficulties and breakage during the process.
So I picked up a package of 5 minute epoxy putty for possible reassembly purposes.

Thanks for the tip!
I'll make sure to do that!

EDIT: I just noticed that you're only about 40 min away from me. Hi "neighbor"!

Took a look at my radiator. Yup, it's leaking. I blame my wife. She blames me for everything else so it's fair.

Got some tweeter brackets from a salvage Laredo, and found a suitable Mopar hitch while I was there. Won't be buying the hitch just yet. Can't afford it. I still would like to though. Chrysler's never gonna get around to this recall.

No problem! I've used lithium grease, and I also have a bunch of extra clips somewhere I think if you break any. Ordered some from Kolak, but I ended up not needing them haha.

Whereabouts are you in Maine?

I'll have to try that lol.

Just ordered the Addco rear sway bar. The alignment yesterday helped a lot...now to tighten up the handling and I'll be set.

I'll keep that in mind!
I live in Phippsburg (Bath area).
If you've been to Fort Popham/Fort Baldwin/Popham Beach, you drove by my house to get there.

Well on the way home about a block away and I hit some bumps, usually no biggie. But it started shaking like crazy. Get it home and look up under it and the uni-body on the passenger side where the rear control arm bolts in broke. Tore the floor boards out and everything. Guess she is headed to the scrap heap. She had a good long 21 years and 356000 miles...

RIP MoJeeP.

Can't really afford all that and it looks like the driver side is getting ready to go any time now. I wish I was able to fix it but I dont think I will...

Dismounted my spare and going to experiment painting it with Rustoleum Hammered black paint. My buddy just painted his winch with it and I came out pretty good. We'll see...
