Here's the dakota. Needs some TLC, my insurance is gonna pay for the window that is broken in the back which I bought that way. Other than that it runs pretty damn good. this was a week ago, I took all the mudflaps and step bars off. Next is some headlights, push bar, i bought a back rack and some black steel wheels, a toolbox, tinted windows, some fog lights, 33s and a 3 inch lift. Other than that I am gonna try and not spend to much time or money on this after I get those basic things done.

Been a while. FINALLY got a tire carrier. Gonna have my spare mounted to my spare wheel this weekend. My shock pin broke so I ended up buying a set of teraflex bar pin eliminator brackets. Ordered new neoprene seat covers which will be here tomorrow! Put 6.5 inch speakers in the soundbar, muchhh better. Its running pretty right now though, I think its because last fall i put in cheap o2 sensors in because i didnt have much extra cash at the time and now its just awful and backfiring. I plan to replace those soon

Is your Jeep still sitting on 35's? If so how does it ride? Any issues with them?

Yup still on 35s. It rides just like it did with the 33s. I personally didn't notice much of a difference. Haven't had any issues

Thanks!

Headlights are actually cheap eBay ones..one of my stock ones blew and I wanted a pair with darker housings but didn't want to break the bank..they don't put out a lot of light, so I always keep my integrated fog lights on which makes up for the lack of headlight. I'm gonna spend some more money on brighter ones soon but for now these do it.

Got ya! Yeah I was thinking the ebay ones but figured I'd ask. I'm in the process of a projector retrofit myself right now. The stock headlight output is terrible!

Figured out my death wobble..I was wrong, it wasnt my control arm busing, but it ended up being my cam bolt to my front lower control arm..it must have been loose and it wobbled enough to rip the entire bracket off the axle..oh well. got two stronger brackets and no more death wobble
