Hm really? It took so long for the spring before because them and skyjacker had miscommunication somewhere so they just sent me the spring from their warehouse. I'll see what they say to my email I sent today

It may take a day or so for them to reply to your PM because, as you can imagine, they get a lot. But once they get it they take care of the order and get it shipped. You also get free shipping by PMing them.

Welll I received my front spring from quadratec after they accidentally sent me a rear spring..I noticed the front spring said skyjacker JK40FR..so I figured it's a JK spring but it looked pretty tall and identical to TJ springs so I thought they were interchangeable..get the jeep in the garage, fight for two hours getting the current spring out, ended up having to take the LCA out to get the spring out. Turns out the JK 4 inch spring from skyjacker is a bout two inches shorter than my TJ 4 inch lift spring from SKyjacker. Now I gotta call quadratec Monday morning have them send me the correct spring for the third time. Very frustrating. I already have four springs I have to ship back to them.

On a better note, got my LED third break light in. But it is only two inches and I still haven't quite figured out I am going to permanently get it to stay in the center of my spare. I drilled a hole for the wires to go through in the tire carrier but the back of the light has a little box that sticks out where the wires connect to the little prongs so pulling the wires through the hole doesn't make the light sit flat..any ideas?

Actually, I think I found my solution to my third brake light.i just cut up a empty yogurt container and the light fits perfect into the hole and the top is big enough to fit through the center of of my wheel. It will pretty much work like a center cap, it's just big enough to lip behind the wheel center when I put it in like a center cap. Gonna paint it tomorrow

ok I got my third brake light on with the yogurt container. The container got a little messed up when I tightened the lug nuts but you can hardly notice. Looks much better

haha hey it works! Better than buying another center cap and chopping it up. Much easier to put a hole in the yogurt container with a razor blade lol

Hey if it works, it works. No sense in making it harder on yourself

So I got a job where my paycheck every week will be 5 times the amount it is now lol. Sooo when I start that in two weeks the first things to come are going to be:

Real corner guards, not the plastic diamond plate I have now
Led taillights, but lite dot led. I don't want to do more drilling and cutting of the body
1.25 jks Body lift
New speakers

Then maybe in the fall I will be ready to order brand new tires, not buy used Craigslist tires. I just need to figure out if I want to buy 35s or 33s. I have the room for 35s, and I don't want to regret buying 33s wishing I went bigger. Decisionsssss

There's a LOT more to run 35s...regearing, steering, brakes.

X2....I would stay with 33's

I feel slightly undergeared with my 31s, 3.73s & 4.6L stroker...I can't imagine 35s with a 2.5L & 4.11s...

Aside from gearing, the brakes & steering would need addressing.

The 33s look good too!

I don't mind my 4.10's and 33's which is why I was considering 35's. But, after thinking a lot I think I may just go with a brand new set of 33 MTS and a 1.25 body lift and that will give the the exact height I want to be at without having to do all the other things such as steering and brakes.
