The ZJ leather seats recently, so much more comfortable than wheeling in an old busted/sagging driver's seat!

has to be either my jcr bumpers, esp when you consider i got my rear jcr crusaders for free and only had to buy the front bumper or my roof rack, makes it look better plus i threw my fullsize spare on top so its no longer in the back squeaking around. Although i would love some sliders!!

I can't nail one I love most, but-

My front rigidco is priceless to me (I got the plate welded in custom)


Long arms are great too, along with 4.56's. All the expensive stuff.

OH! And frame stiffeners.

I work on Mopars
