me too... ok so heres the savings plan for the jeep. Add 1" coil spacers and new coil spring isolaters, Rear adjustable x flex control arms with johnny joints upper and lower, front lower control arms either from IRO or the Iron Man ones not sure yet, 1" transfer case drop, extended brake lines, then gonna run 33's. Does anyone know if my driveshaft will be fine at this height or will it need lengthening? it is a double cardan rezeppa style (ujoint at tcase and cv at axle) and the rear is both u joints double cardan i think

You're going to want a new front shaft. Rear should be fine.

I'll bet it's the third brake light. The bulb sockets get worn and the bulb can move around inside of the socket. Sometimes to where it doesn't have a good connection, doesn't light, thus the lamp failure module being a tattle tail.

Hit the top of your hatch by the 3rd brake light and it might fix it. Hit a bump, then you're probably back to square uno.

I fixed mine by replacing the bulb socket piece. Just unplugged the old and plugged in the new.

ps. Nice rig. Even those tires look small.

I like the look of no cladding but only if its clean under like moony johns zj when i took mine off there was some paint chipped and the paint underneath was kind of a different color. i think mine looks alot cleaner with the cladding on (i think because its black) when you take the cladding off theres those nipple things that poke out (which kinda look cool in my opinion) and theres tiny holes. Also when you take the cladding off the plastic that holds on the cladding is over 12 years old so they tend to break pretty easily which makes a chore for you if you want to put them back on....to sum it up i would leave the cladding on and just paint it, thats what i did
