Installing the RE super flex UCA's today, and trying not to feed any more ratchets to the frame, almost lost one completely!

tell me about it, barely fits in my garage with the 30s though..but ill be going to 33s after i get some cragars. total cost...hurts. $1700. extra labor was due to only 1 broken bolt but all 4 of the leaf spring bolts took them a long time because they came half way out and then just started spinning so it took them along time to get out. no regrets though, i love the lift!

Had a new muffler put on by my local shop. Jeep was so loud it rattled your teeth when accelerating. Muffler had a hole you could put a softball in. MUUUUUCH quieter now. This weekend we change oil, trans fluid, and try and figure out how to replace the glass in the hatch.

I got the RE Hack 'n' Tap, comes HIGHLY recommended from the guys I wheel with, I'll save you a little trouble and point you here:

http://www.alljeep.com/oscommerce/ad..._description=1

You'll need one unless you go with an RE CV shaft.

Looks good man! I was bored at work earlier so I was waiting to check it out. You do really need some bigger tires and some wheels with some more backspacing. What was the original quote for the install? I couldn't imagine dropping $1700 for the whole setup. Could you break down costs between what you paid for lift then labor? At that price I would have bought any tool needed and double the beer for my buddies to help.

Edit: And Pizza too.

Pretty big/expensive day today .

Got my uncle to do my brakes and rotors (which on one rotor had 2 dime-sized gouges) and taking it off was shocking, the pads were completely gone. So then I ended up having to replace the left driverside caliper also plus the brake line...

Apparently for some reason the caliper was locked on the driverside for the past like 2 months ive had the jeep, so i was constantly driving with the left brake on, which after it got ruined, stressed my right side even more. But it was weird cuz it made literally no noise until the last 3 days ago..

Haha he's like, you'll probably get better mileage now also seeing that you won't be riding around with the brake permanently on. And it's stunning how much acceleration power the jeep has now, im so surprised...and oh yeah, finally some stopping power!
