One question... you drive in the cold... any tips what liquid to put in the transmission and transfer case... mopar atf 4 or any Atf 4 or is there something better for extreme cold?
I use ATF+4 in trans and NV247 fluid as recomended, no problems for me so far, been down to -27 degree celsius.
You should Go for a good (5w-30 if V8) syntetic engine Oil for the best engine protection.

North Norway is deff worth a trip

Hopefully a good upgrade over stock,
How do they feel?
Will wait out winter to spring and put them on with the new wheels to save them up alittle from salt and everything.

They bite hard and quick. Night/day difference over stock. Felt a lot more confident when towing. I am able to lock them up on the floor, defiantly could not do that previously.

Nice, sounds great, cant wait to Get them on now, Will be a good thing to upgrade brakes while going up in tire size.
And the added safety while hauling trailer isnt wrong either

Pulled out a stuck Audi of the snow today, a CitroŽn yesterday, the CitroŽn was really stuck with both rockers over an ice plow Edge, tugged him out and ripped the tow hook out of its bumper, ha ha ha

^^^Thanks man, Thumbsup

Update, Jeep rides perfect with the lift, alittle stiff which i prefer onroad, still handles tight and Nice in curves and at high speed driving.
I got some small clunking, which might just be the famous JKS QD's, also noticed that they rub slightly at full flex un discoed.
Its really stiff with both Addco's, i had 2 tires dangling the other day, when i was going diagonal over a half meter (2ft) snow plow Edge

My apartment flip project is coming to an end now soon, old one up for sale now next week, so then i plan to Get some Jeep projects finished up, here's a quick list of what needed:

-Recheck/retight all bolts after lift
-Look into the JKS QD clunking
-Stereo install
-Engine Oil and filter
-BTF diff covers and new Redline fluid
-New wheels/tires 255/70/17
-Stillen brakes and Rotors
-KOR TB bushing

Cant wait to Get those wheels on, Hakka's performs perfect on snow&ice, awsome winter tires for sure, but the look and wider stance with more tire profile/sidewall and 9" wide rims Will be Nice

Thanks for pushing, it was all i needed,,,,
Today i test fitted my AMP's in the sun outside my new garage, AND wired up the main power suply from batt in engine compartment under the rear seats.

I routed it from the batt > under the plastic cowl cover (zip tied together) > thrue the rubber gromit in the torpedo wall > down behind kick panel > under carpet/bottom door cover > behind b pillar cover > under carpet/bottom rear door cover > up thrue gap to under rear Seat.

Then it started to snow, AHHHH SHHHH!!!
ha ha

Atleast a start.

Today i had a quick look at the front end,
Rechecked/retightened all bolts after lift.
JKS QD clunks for sure,
AND DEFF need a new right upper ball joint, Its all shoot, That might be a big part of my clunks.

So on my todo list,

Right upper ball joint
Rear addco energy bushings
KOR tb bushing

TB seemed tight and Nice, feels abit better/tighter after retightened all bolts
