Ah man these things always sag. I was doing 19 rear until I put the subs in and then it went down. Then added 3/4 rear. Then I wanted more and did 3/4 spacer front. Then added some spring spacers in the rear also haha. 19 front now and 19.8 or 20 rear

Well I like the look of it being even anyway so maybe with the BB it will look good.

Edit: That explains why I can't see my hood like I could with my last Jeep

Haha. Yea I noticed that I could see more hood when I had just the rears installed. I need to have the rear higher because of all the towing that I do.

what do you tow? You can't pull much with a 4.0. I wanna tow something since I have a hitch now but I don't have anything haha

More problems, the stock headunit kept spitting out all my CDs and saying error so just to be sure I put them in my moms car and they work fine, so instead of just having it on acc I started it and it took forever but it actually played one. Jenns starting to piss me off.

Oh I put my 4.0 to work. I have pulled 3500 pounds and just got on it. I posted up a pic here with my Jeep pulling a trailer full of wood and trees.

Upgrade headunits! Haha. I am not sure why it is doing that man

Wow that's a lot.

I think it may just be old technology combined with it being 10 years old. I just need some money but headunit is on the list.

I have pulled around 4500-5000 pounds before... That was pretty slow... but kept it out of OD. It was a boat and had breaks and tandem axles and everything. That is when having the tow package helps, 3.73 gears, trans cooler, extra mechanical engine fan,

No, OverDrive on while towing heavy stuff isnt gonna help, its gonna hurt. With it on, the 42re goes in to 4th as normal, then around 45 mph will lock of the torque converter, lowering the RPMs. So that top gear makes it harder to tow. With OD off, its keeps it out of 4th gear and will go to 3rd gear then lock up the torque converter in 3rd gear. Keeping the gearing "lower" and the rpms higher for more power.
