I've screwed around with doing that before, and told myself I'd never use one thats too short again after I had it spinning when I was trying to take a lug nut off

If its a hair longer I don't mind, just toss it in the lathe or let it be and it'll make the rotors stick on lol

Just was curious what everyone else was running

Just a thought, my friend just bought some very nice bolt on spacers off eBay that came out of MN. They were $100 for all 4 shipped. Maybe you can pic up 2 for $50. Might wind up costing the same as studs. Oh and while your in there get those stupid brake shields off, mine where full of rocks and crap.

Thorley Headers/Kolak Exhaust on my 5.9

Today: Thorley headers, kolak exhaust (3" magnaflow cat/3" flowmaster 50 SUV/mandrel bent pipes), magnaflow double-wall chrome tip, mopar performance O2 sensors, and a new SCT tune.

Tomorrow: Transgo TFOD-HD2 shift kit.

Wednesday: A new autopage security system with remote start and windows so I'll at least be able to look out the window and see who is stealing my cat at work!

Coming soon: mopar M1 intake/bbk throttle body/crower 1.7 roller rockers and push rods/mopar performance springs/kolak ignition upgrade (magnecor wires/autolite sparks/harness)

Installed the outlets in the cargo area (above the cubby on the passenger side), and finished up the 120v wiring for the inverter. My 150a ANL fuse came in today, so I just have to connect the remote switch to the inverter and run the 12V cables for it, and it'll be ready to go.

Thanks, I'll have to look into those for the price.

And I already tore the shields off, I just got the 8.8 painted a few days ago. Needs upper link mounts on the truss, and shock mounts, but I figured it'd be easier once it was under the zj so I could get the positioning dead on.



Here's the skid I made for it, should hold up pretty good

Looking damn good. When you mount the shocks be careful to keep them tucked in. Mine hit the calipers at full twist and destroyed the shocks, this is partially why I built mine like this.

Will you be doing the symbols with the Plasti dip? after you hit some trails let me know how its holding up. I was planning on doing the same to mine. thanks
