Notched the Rubicon Express cross member





No more exhaust or t-case rubbing

I never did put up pictures of the long arms





It's been about 200 miles on the new kit so I went threw and was checking to make sure all the bolts and nuts were still tight

I found 2 (driverside and passengers side same bolt) loose bolts



When I loosen it the bolt it backs out, when I tighten it gets snug then just spins. What should I do about that?

**EDIT** fixed the bolt issue... Turns out that the old bolts were a little rusty so I replaced them. The new bolts snugged up and stayed tight.

What exhaust do you have? I thought you sold yours for some reason?

I had it up for sale on here, but nothing but low ballets/tire kickers. I have a Perrin 3" exhaust that turns down behind rear axle.

I dropped my jeep off at the local jeep dealership this morning because of a small leak, that turned out to be the rear main seal, and a drowning noise in 4wd and that turned out to be my front drive shaft. :-/ let's hope my warranty covers that rear main deal! My only worry is that they won't because it's a gasket.

You still have a warranty on it? Or did you get a crate motor?

I bought my jeep Feb 2011 with a 2 year/24k mile warranty from a stealership
I have 2.5 months left or 3k left on my warranty

I lost compression in my motor summer of 2011 and got it warrantied with a lower mileage motor (New motor had 69k on it and mine had 98k)

I recieved a phone call from Lithia Jeep yesterday. They brought in a 3rd party inspector to look at my jeep. The warranty company is going cover the rear main seal, head gasket and vavle cover gasket. Best part is that i only have a 50$ deductible
