Replaced the alternator, new air filter, and coolant flush. Next week sometime will be a new optima battery and a capacitor for the subs. Dam big system is draining everything

Washed all the salt off of it today, and changed the oil. Last Monday I installed a kenwood 800w amp and a 10" kicker l5 sub. My first ever system install, it was a pain in the *** but worth it.

Haha its all good man it got here yesterday, thanks again!

Today I got off work early and decided to fix my idler pulley and I hitched up my trailer, put it back together, and loaded up all the axles to get them out of the garage so my parents stop *****ing. Loaded those up and put my 35s in it and some other stuff, ZJ barely started squatting, like a boss!

I'm not sure what kind it is, yet. I am getting it off craigslist for 35 bucks. The guy is upgrading his jeep, he just installed a stroker with a turbo so he didnt need the header. It should be interesting to see his jeep.

That reminds me, didn't you buy a set of 35 inch km2's? I remember seeing a pic of them on your trailer hitch basket. Are those what you're talking about?

I got them from work and sold them. These are the 35" KMs I had on my cherokee while it sat up north. I am junking them if I can't find someone who wants them. But I am selling my old ravines and buying my winch plate and I might have a possible lead on some 33" TrXus M/Ts on 15x8 soft 8s..just might get them if I can get them cheap enough.

Was very disappointed today. I received 2 of the 3 shippments from kolak and iro yesterday and the last shippment today. I was hopeing to come home from work to fully install my lift, but when I opened the box it was just the front coils and no rear coils. So I emailed iro and still waiting on their response. After that I just said f it and install everything till they ship me my rear coils.

So its now 7pm and its dark outside so I get my 2 flood lights and tools and got to working on it. Everything was easy to take out but the track bar bracket, took me 1hr to take it out. And while I was installing it, I let the axles drop as low as the can and even pushed it down with my feet and it looks like my brake lines still have enough play in them. Now the only question is do I need extened bump stops and or how did everyone install their bilstein shocks because I cant seem to tighten it down unless I use an allen wrench and a regular wrench to tighten it down(Fronts that is).

So whats the issue with the shocks? My bilstiens were cake, just put in all the bolts and tightened them down. As for the bumpstops, all depends on what tire size you are running. I have extended bumpstops but I am running tires bigger than most normally do on my lift height.
