I'm thinking the hammered gray roof rack would look good too with this setup, that's what I will go for.

Passenger's side shock bolt stuck like a biatch. I tried vice grips, just spun on the grips, late night thinking says cut the shock shaft in half and pop it through the top. Forgot about the upper bushings. Now trying jb blast and vice grips on so hard my palm made a popping noise putting them on hahaha. Praying this works or I am going to have to drill both sides of the nut and split the nut in half.

I put 8 lbs of boost thru my 4.0 today. It felt amazing! Until the fuel management unit took a crap. Damn it!

Here is a short vid. Just a brake boost to about 5lbs. Sounds so awesome.

Oh hell yeah! How much did you spend on all that and what exhaust have you got on it?

Tonight I got my stuck shock out, put in my bilstiens and BPE's, moving onto the control arms tomorrow.

When I first saw this pic I thought it was a radio controlled toy and got very excited...

I put in my 2 inch bb rough country shocks sway bar links and some kc's on my stock rack. Only problem was went to test it off road at glebe st in taunton ma ( I have always had a shake at 40mph) and road the trail fine. Got on the road after hit a bump doing 40 and my jeep shook so much my muffler came off. Any suggestions on what the shake may be

Death wobble. Search the forum. So many different things can cause this. Steering components are usually the culprits. Ie. heim, tierod ends etc.

Topped off my fluids, why does it scare me that I don't burn or leak oil with 181k. Something about that seems wrong.

Gonna want to check/replace tie rod ends, control arms and track bar. But yes, do a search, youll find everything you need to know. Might wanna replace your steering stabilizer too, just to help.
