So the wrenching part is this Saturday right? My parts better come in...::shaking fist::

I probably will hold off on purchasing the regear until I buy the Nth TJ2. Diff Covers are a must this weekend since rocks and my current diffs like to get together.

I don't think a Currie Steering System requires any welding right?

To get my Rockers on I will need to drill into my frame...I'll see about bringing some drill bits to get the job done.

Currie steering does not require welding, but a tie rod puller would be helpful... I think Scott said he has one of those.

you don't need a tie rod puller.....a big hammer will do the job nicely
plus, i've had bad experience w/ pullers, that damaged the tie rods coming out.
although it doesn't really matter if he's getting new steering.

No I ended up going with the Spyder Customs' Ricochet Rockers. I like the Crusher Corner add-on guards they have that will ultimately protect the rear-well once I get that done. I just didn't like the idea of my plastic fenders not being flush with the Jeeperman Rockers.

Plus the spider just looks f'ing cool!

I think my tie rod has already been bent and rebent, so it's not exactly something I feel comfortable reselling/reusing.

I would love to hook up all four of my fog lights. I see a switch inside that probably is for it...but none of them work.

What would I need to purchase so I can get them up and running?

Thanks
