looks great, im sure it will be even better with shocks. what kind were the shocks you are currently running? im assuming they probably came with the kit or something? and more importantly, what kind of shocks are you going to go with?
They were the RK shocks. I think they were manufactured by Monroe. With the age of my kit, they couldn't remember. They were an oil shock, and rode VERY nice on the road. My favorite feature: They had built in rubber bump stops to keep the shock from destroying itself. It didn't allow the shocks to bottom out.
I went with Pro-Comp 9000's, I'll see how they do for now with my new measurements. It was only $130 for all four, I may go with MX6 adjustables next time around, and once I know I have the lengths dialed in. I was looking at the Bilsteins, but the MX6's were only a few bucks more. 4WP always does the buy 3 get one free deal with shocks.

Cool, thanks though. I will post pics when I eventually fab something up.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the Bilsteins. My springs are a bit stiff on road, and the shocks can't do much to counter that, but on rough roads and off-road, the suspension is just made of awesome. I can't believe how much better the handling is from stock. Now that's where it gets fun. I give a lot of credit to the Bilsteins.
That is good to hear. It pushes me even further in the direction of the MX6's for the future. The shocks I have make the WJ ride like a caddy, and I need something with a little more resistance. I will report back on how I like the 9000's.
My rear brake line came in today. The parts guy at the local dealership had a smile when he brought it out. It is quite the long line that they brought in for me. $15 for a pre-bent line, not bad.
I received my HID lights from CrawlerReady today! I will be mounting 4 of them on the roof. I will try to fab up a mount of some type this weekend, I want something more stable that the crossbars, and I don't think the mounting tabs that Surco makes for my rack will place the lights in the right place.
Those lights are gonna look killer on there,wish i could put a roof rack and lights up top but dont wanna give up my garage parking,it would be close but dont think it will fit with my setup,i know the lights for sure wouldnt fit,looking forward to pics. after install
I ordered some tab brackets so that I can attach the lights to the roof rack.
I would like to move the rack back 2 inches though so that the lights aren't above the sunroof at all. However, the tool that I have to loosen the brackets stripped out.
Does anyone have any clue how I can get these things loose, or where to find a quality steel socket that would work? I'm looking for a 15 point inverted torx style socket. Below are pics of the tool and the roof rack bracket that I need to loosen.
kinda looks like a spline drive socket. hard to tell if it'd match up from the pics, id take the broken tool to a harbor freight or northern tool or something like that and take a look at a set and see if it matches up.

Sounds great. I replied to your thread about SLC wheeling and the times you will be available...I am hoping that your plans are for the afternoon, but I understand if that doesn't work with your schedule.
My bro and I will arrive in Moab on Oct 20th not long after the noon hour. I will make sure to get your cell from you at AmF Canyon so we can stay in touch about Moab!
Well, I am officially SICK of having brake light, running light, and blinker issues with my tail lights. I ordered a set of LED lights off of Ebay. I love the look of 00JGC00's lights on the white WJ, so I bought the same style....he will be credited with inspiration kudos.
