It looks like you stuck with the JKS bar and swapped the KOR bushings in place of the JKS bushings?

I did the same thing. It's amazing how 'hard' the KOR bushings are. A little pricey but if you're chasing down shimmies or what not, it's worth it.

Hmmm... Let me see if I can get this right...

Dupli-color black for tinting the windshield.
Dupli-color clear to make your tire sidewalls shine.
J-B weld for that pesky cracked block.
K&N cleaner kit to clean up the interior.

What do I win?

Ya I saw it. I didn't look at their Facebook page though. Ya I'd like to get that wrangler at parks . It's pretty nice.

If I had a choice, I'd really like to put a sbc 350 in it. Haha.

Hopefully I can trade it in on something, then trade that for another weekend warrior daily driver.
