We'll do some night wheeling for sure! I am going to try and get my rock lights wired to the switch before then as well, hopefully I have a couple of nights free this week. Both of the interior switches are wired, and the relays are under the hood. But I do not yet have the wires run from the LED rock lights to the relays under the hood. With the interior switches done though, the hard part is taken care of.

He is having his site re-worked, but I had his number because he is in Utah. He posted just a few posts above, you can PM him or hit him up on Facebook if you need anything. Thanks for the compliments.

Whatever you eventually choose, I suggest AGAINST the name snow bunny. That is the name my wife originally started to call our Jeep, so I had to immediatly come up with a cool name.

Today was not a fun day working on the Jeep...

If you don't have a bottle of anti seize, buy one. I love the stuff, and wish that everyone would use it. It is now obvious that the guys that installed the RK shocks on my Jeep didn't use any. I fought with the bolts on the drivers side, I had to use a 1/2 inch socket set and breaker bar to get the bolts out. That is ridiculous for a 15mm bolt.

Have you ever had that sinking feeling...a bolt wont budge, then it suddenly becomes very easy to turn? Then, snap... bolt breaks. My bolt broke with about 1/3 of an inch of threads sticking out of the unibody. That thing was stuck.

I heated the nut with a torch to red and using vice grips, no go.

After struggling with it, I decided to call my expert mechanic (little brother). I ran it over to the shop, and welded on a large nut. I tried this three times, and each time the nut broke.


Then my bro welded on another bolt, and we tried to pull it that way after heating the nut to cherry red again. The bolt broke off. So as I was about to give up and just cut the thing off and make a new nut and bracket, we tried one more thing. We pushed a bolt through the outer bracket, slipped a large nut over it, and then pushed the nut out of the way. We welded the bolt to the snapped bolt. Then we slid the nut over to the weld, and welded a tone of material on the metal in between the nut and the broken bolt section. Then we heated the nut to cherry red again, I used an open ended wrench on the inner nut we welded into place, and my bro used a ratchet wrench on the bolt end, and it came out!!!!


Then I had to cut the bolt up to get it out:


Old vs New. I still need to do the front shocks when they get in (still on back order).


The old shocks were in toast. CLICK ON THE PHOTO BELOW to see the video:
