Oh, I forgot to mention that my rear main seal is leaking. I have an appointment on Thursday at the Jeep dealer. The good news is that I still have a warranty, so it's only going to cost me $100.

I also just ordered Rokmen LCA's

Jeep is at the dealer getting a new rear main seal. Should have it back by Wednesday.

More parts came in yesterday.

Rokmen LCA's and bumpstops.

I still have about $1500 left in my budget. I was thinking about Vanco brakes. What would you guys spend it on?

Sliders. Believe me, they can get hit a lot. Also, under armor is good too.

With you running 285s , black magic pads and new rotors will stop you in a hurry . I would look at sliders and a gas tank skid . Then use whats left to start collecting parts for the tummy tuck .

I wanted vanco brakes at first, but I've heard good things about black magic brakes, and there cheaper.
