Still a sweet deal even with that minor flaw. i bet it weighs a lot...good luck getting it mounted...the end result will be worth it though

Right now im just super broke because i spent my paycheck on this bumper. i wasnt even looking or planning on buying it but when i saw the ad on craigslist i had to jump on it. not much will be going on until i get paid next

Rc disconnects are on and in good working order no clunks and very tight... Heres some pics for anyone interested. The iro swaybar links have a double shear bracket whereas the rc ones have single shear and the link uses a tie rod end. The iro links are a little thicker though.

This year i have changed my major from business management to automotive. Im going to do the MOPAR Chrysler Automotive Program. I get an associates degree out of it and i will come out being a level 3 mechanic and they say i can take my ase certifications from what i learn. im super excited i actually see a light at the end of my education hole Also since im going to have to drive 30 minutes to go to school im getting a set of all terrain tires they are 33 12.50 15 dayton timberline ats. i had a set in the 235 flavor when i was stock and they rode nice. Im trading my mud terrains for them straight up. As i go through school i plan on upgrading things on my jeep as i learn because we can bring our own cars into the school and work on them

update:

I was having problems with a random stall/ no start. I had a code for the camshaft position sensor not giving signal to pcm. changed the cam position sensor with mopar sensor and also did the crank sensor with a BWD sensor. still wouldnt start. i put the old crank sensor back in and it cranked right up. Just thought i would share my experience with these sensors. My jeep seems to be picky and only likes the mopar sensors. (or advanced gave me the wrong one although it looked exactly like the old one).

Not too much planned for the heep...right now just trying to save money for tools and build a tube rear bumper.

To be honest when i get a job at a dealership i would love to have a 4 door jk rolling on 35s. I love my zj but deep down i want a 5 speed wrangler and the nice interior the jk has to offer. Hopefully i can keep my zj and use it offroad and DD the jk

Congrats on getting engaged man! Im pretty sick of putting more money into this jeep. I need to start saving money for more important things in life...i like the iro otk steering but i hear the heims wear out quick and it is noisy. Other options would be either the currie setup or jcr. I really want to learn how to weld
