Washed her finally and put some new lights in the marker lamps, like the color but was hoping they'd be a little brighter, ill keep looking. and took off the bug deflector but revealed some paint rub off and marks underneath.

And plan on doing the "Removal of the air box noise reducer" this weekend and will do a write up in separate thread since people asked to.

finally took her wheeling again today, although found out today need some spacers on her, the tires rub the struts when i flex for the rear and should probably invest in a locker for at least the rear.
And gonna try and do the removal of the air box noise reducer for the 4.0 tomorrow, will do a write up too.

I am not doing the Removal of the Noise Dampener above the TB because as i was tryinig to do it i noticed its more work than its worth especialy with how the stock air box has a oval outlet.

Although after my last off road adventure when i hosed her down and got her clean i noticed one of the Freedom Edition "rock sliders" was pinched against my body. Didn't take long to realize it was from off roading. So now im pondering the idea to get real rock sliders in place of the freedoms and painting them silver. But im not sure it will look as good or normal with them silver and i am still trying to maintain the freedom edition look.
Looking for some input

Seems you are off to a good start, love the black WJs.

I would guess that you are in the reserves ? Have a friend that is in NY reserves as well...

keep it coming, addiction never seems to let up.

yesterday night was driving when the caliper for my front drivers side brakes broke off the braket and thus tearing our the ABS sensor and made a nice score in the inside of the rim.

Today found out its going to cost $420.00 to fix seems like i fix one thing enjoy it for a week and another thing breaks.... must be a jeep thing.

got my truck back this afternoon, decided to put my 10MM spacers on and saw the damage of the struts from the tires. Rubbed of the paint to the metal every time i flexed.

Not trying to knock your thread, but you may want to invest on some longer wheel-studs to account for the thickness of the spacers if your going to run that type of spacer on the freeway; there will be significantly less thread engagement if you run those with the the stock studs and it could become a safety issue at some point. Or run spacers with built-in studs like spidertrax and the like.

No your not knocking it but thanks i had thought of that originally but i took the caps off a couple of the lugs and you can see how much thread it catches and there's still a little past so technically has the same amount of thread grab as before.
