Yeah I hear you, I'm starting to rethink it and maybe find another route to go instead of regearing. I honestly thought the 33's would be much worse than people say but it really is a personal opinion, it's fine for me. The seat covers are neoprene custom made for a jeep. They are really comfortable and strap underneath the seat so they don't move easily and when they get dirty I just throw em in the washer. I don't know what the brand is, but a lot of sites sell them including ebay.

I thought the same thing with my 4cyl and 33's but I opted against 33's and got 32's. They look the same and give you just a little more flex but the 32's didn't hurt my gearing too bad either. Good luck with the Jeep.

Finally bought a shock mount and got my 4th shock on. Also got my tailpipe back on. I hate exhausts!

I'm just starting work again so I have a nice income and I'm trying to think of all the things I'm going to buy but I think I should start saving my money incase anything breaks on my jeep that NEEDS to get fixed..I'll try my best hah. Sold my insta-trunk for 100 bucks today and ordered a stinger for my front bumper! I'll start saving after these things:

A new set of better speakers- Any suggestions? I have a sony head unit.
I new downstream 02 sensor - Can I buy other ones that the $70 dollar one at autozone?!
Change my oil
a black carpet (i wont buy it brand new though)
Center caps

What should my next mod be?

So I did install Skyjacker discos but somehow the passenger side bar, pins, and bottom bracket are missing. I'm assuming this is due to the bottom bracket not on tight enough which would then come loose enough to fall of resulting in the bar to fall as well. It didn't break because I still had the top bracket. So now I have one full sway bar link, and half of the other. I don't think I can just get one somewhere so that really sucks. So now I have the links that came in my lift but I'd really like to have discos again. Guess thats on my list too Deff learning from this mistake! I got them for 60 bucks brand new too when they are originally 112.

Love the Jeep. Its a awesome start to your rig. I bought my YJ about a year ago, and going to college makes my build hard too. I like your BFG AT's, I had some on my Jeep when I bought it, and wish I would have kept them. My Wrangler AT's aren't nearly as nice.

Thanks! I do like my ATs and I have gotten nothing but good comments out of them. Originally I was going to look for a mud tire but I came across the ATs on CL and I didn't think I could pass it up, and they have a good amount of tread on them for how cheap I got them. I haven't gone in the mud yet with them, but I've driven a friends jeep with them and I do love it!

When I had the AT's on mine I took it out alot. I didnt go into really deep mud since my Jeep doesn't have a lift yet or a winch. They did just fine in everything I put them through. I like their highway ride too, its pretty quiet, and won't beat you to death either.

So im thinking about next mods, ah the choices! I'm thinking maybe lockers. I don't know a ton about them, so it's a process that would take a while. But I'm thinking about it!

With the lockers I do actually have a recommendation for you. My dads rig has ARB air lockers. Their more expensive, but they are so much easier to operate. He had some OX lockers before with the old style cables, and they would get stiff and hard to move it they weren't lubed all the time. Considering their under your Jeep chances are you won't feel like lubing them all the time, and they'll get stiff. ABR seems to make a heavier locker anyways, and the fact that you can just press a button and lock them inside the cab is nice. If you shop the web you can get them cheaper. You may be able to get them directly from ABR cheaper. Thats how Im getting my lift, if you go to Rough Country directly they take off 10%.

Their nets are 50% off as long as its any color besides grey and black (hence why I have red). They are $99 bucks before the %50 percent off so 50 bucks isn't bad at all. I looked for hours for other nets and couldn't find anything under 150 dollars that didn't involve taking the top completely off the jeep. I personally like the net, gives it a different look and helps when I have the pup

Ah thanks for the info! I definitely have a lot more to learn about lockers before I make any moves but I have heard a lot of good about ARB. I'd prefer to operate them right in the cab so that is a plus. Thanks!

After a while of cleaning under my jeep and getting all the power steering off my suspension, I believe I found the problem! Unfortunately its not a hose ha., it seems I'm leaking right by the pitman arm, the gear box? It's leaking pretty fast I suppose. I hear about people trying break fluid...should I try it or just change the damn seals?
