A Buckeye that does something cool besides wanting someone fired after they lose a football game?! I'm impressed, nice Jeep.

Put together a 3.5" kit last night that i will get. hoping to have it by the end of the summer or by christmas
itll consist of:
-IRO double shear tbar
-JKS rear tbar from kevins
-IRO front coils
-Black diamond shocks (this is the only one that is not definite. im not gonna get top of the line shocks yet, ill do that whenever i go to 4.5")
-homemade front and rear sway bar links

thisll run me about $600 + and estimate $50 for shipping


i also pieced together a 4.5" lift with front long arms for an estimated $1700 shipped
god so expensive :rollseyes:
luckily ill have the tbars and links from my 3.5" kit to use with the 4.5

just some ideas for the near future

keep the input coming guys, i value ur guys' ideas and thoughts

Sorry I had to, I grew up 15 minutes from OSU but am now a Boilermaker, school is great, football not so much. People don't believe me here when I tell them they have no idea the difference in going to a game at the shoe, its two different worlds.

Question for you, how loud is your exhaust inside the car on the highway?

oh jeez you shoulda been to our penn state game this past season

before i got the tail pipe on you couldnt have a conversation. there was no way. u had to yell lol
when i got the tail pipe on, you can still hear it definitely but not as loud. it does have a nice low growl to it.
but you can talk to somebody right next to you and not have to completely yell. u do have to raise ur voice a little.

its so weird cuz its much quieter on the inside now, but when you get behind it and have somebody rev it up, omg

Alright, thats all I needed to know. I have to have a axle dump with my set up, so I won't be getting that exhaust.
