I had a guy make me a small stinger that I can place on my stock front bumper (would of got an aftermarket bumper but I like how light the front bumper is) that bolts on to where the tow hooks are and with some longer bolts I can still keep my hooks Only cost me 65 bucks shipped to my door and should be here by wednesday!

So my jeep is parked until my new UCA bracket comes in the mail. Getting rid of the whole track bar relocation bracket and just going to use this one bracket.

I decided I am going to stop buying accessories or things to make my jeep look good and start my maintance process. Jeep is at 116k and I want this thing to last. On my list:

New o2 sensors
New steering box and seals (leaking a mess!)
Oil change
New rotors and break pads (rusted to hell)
Sand and paint the frame with por-15
New u-joints
New plugs and wires under the hood
And a good wash and wax

Why the new o2 sensors?

I'd check your front wheel joints too. Change all the fluids. Trans, t-case, front&rear diffs. Changing your coolant and doing a bleed and flush of your brake fluid isn't a bad idea either.

My rear o2 sensor is bad, it has been for about 3 weeks now. I'm thinking if this one has gone bad that the other one will probably go soon too

I just changed my radiator a few months ago and replaced the hoses and thermostat so all that should still be good. I'll bleed and flush my breaks when I change my rotors and pads. I think my rear diff is leaking so I gotta take a look at that too.
