Got my exteded rear end links today, also got paid today and instead of going out and just clicking it all away I'm stopping and thinking about exactly what's the best thing to spend it on. Let's just say I have enough for a full new set of tires but I know that's not what the jeep needs right now. Looks like I'm going to get some small spacers, shocks, trackbar, and maybe new isolators. I want to do all the bushings over because when this is all assembled I want a very clean smooth ride no clunks or bangs. My rear d shackles are also clanking now, I don't know why they waited till now, so I'll have to deal with that too, might just take em off and store in the jeep

I take back any gripe I may have had in the past about IRO's prices, these end links are solid and worth the extra buck. What's really sad is that the links are thicker then the rear bar itself... Lol. Only thing is as you can see in the third pic the include bolt is not a snug fit at all in the bushing sleeves, I'm worried that may induce a clunk or other noise but we shall se

Links look good! Maybe when you tighten it down it will squish it and get rid of the play?

Otherwise looks good. So you are now ahead of me on parts?

Gas is a non-renewable expense! I'm supposed to only be spending what I need on gas, saving some, and spending the rest on Jeep lol. If I had like some TDI Jetta or something *cough* *erhem* that got 45+mpg maybe I'd consider it but at the tune of $60 and 3 hours drive, I'll go skiing in New Hampshire for New Years instead lol. Plus its not like I havent been down there once already this year.

More relevant, new weird thing showed up... if I put the air on when I first start the Jeep it smells kinda like that bitterant they put in cans of compressed air to prevent people from getting high off of it... I'm not sure how to describe it but its some type of chemical smell and its not gas and it doesnt seem normal. Maybe its just me going a little crazy. Goes away after couple minutes

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Lysol bomb your air vents, if it's been damp a lot lately, it could be a little bit of mold growth or something.

Bigger bolts.

Lysol through the HVAC intake under the windshield cowling? Lemon fresh scent!

I thought the exact same thing but the AC is still working perfectly after two weeks of this smell. It happened that last week I was in ROC but I kinda ignored it/pretended it wasn't there. I might go Rent a gauge at autozone and check my AC pressure

Plus im cheap cus I won't be making that money back, need a job lol!

Its times like these I wish I had an 04 limited/ovy lol.... I'd trade my Jeep as is right now (even with the bumpers on it!) for any of the following WJs. One of the big reasons I got the bumpers is because with the white and the factory bumper covers it just looked so..... bubbly, so.... not really masculine-ish. Its much more tolerable to me now, minus the tan interior. All of the below Jeeps have a very different impression which I really like
