This bolt was a pain in the a$$ to undo. Breaker Bar and a steel pipe did the trick though.
I still need to do a small Tcase drop to take care of the vibes, which are very minimal btw, but I am very happy with the way it came out. I took it wheelin today and what a difference! So much grip with those new tires
That looks great man. I'm so jealous of the 5 speed FWIW I took off my front air dam and bumper end caps after my lift and it made it look a lot better IMO.
The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius
Go to Heaven for the climate, go to Hell for the company.
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do next. I don't plan on a cruise control swap anytime soon but that might be an interesting project. I think I'm going to take the stereo out of my old zj and put it in here.
I noticed a considerable power loss on the highway with the bigger tires. I have to downshift into 4th at like 65 in order to make it up any decent grade. I'm now contemplating changing my gearing. I was thinking of getting some axles out of an auto XJ with 3.55 ratio in them. Should I just go this route instead of just buying new gears and putting them into the axles I have now? What do you guys think of the 3.55 ratio in a manual with 245/75/R16 tires (about 31")? I used a calculator and it came out to a slight underdrive as compared to stock. Does anyone have any experience with this setup?
