Check craigslist daily like I do, save you the time crawling under a vehicle in the junkyard that isnt supported properly. If you cant find anything locally on craigslist, bring your own jack stands to the junkyard with you. When you leave just find some wheels/rims to set the vehicle back down onto. The reason I ordered a hitch offline is because all the cherokees at the junkyard have a rim under the hitch supporting the vehicle. I could of gone back with a jack and stands but it was easier to spend a few bucks more to get a new one that I didnt have to pull.

Thats another thing. I ordered a class 3 hitch off ebay along with a 2" d-ring receiver and jcr offroad nutstrips. Il have pictures of the parts when they arrive.

Lastly, picked up a 4 ton comealong to add to the recovery equipment collection.

I had ordered a class 3 hitch off ebay a few days ago and they just wrote me to say that there was a manufacturing defect and they refunded me the $. They said if I waited a month for another hitch they would give me 10% off. I dont have the patience so I ordered a different one. I did just get a d-ring receiver off ebay and a pair of jcr nutstrips. Trying to heat up the garage so I can test fit my lawn edging flares, its hard to get any work done when its this cold. Should have wheelin pics/videos this weekend.

Nice, get rid of those horrible things. Dont forget to inspect and/or replace your friction pads while you have the leaf packs apart.
Nutstrips are $36 http://www.jcroffroad.com/mm5/mercha...ct_Code=NTSTRP

And the friction pads are the plastic pads that go in between your individual leafs. Without them or with worn down ones your leafs will squeak and can wear down the metal when the ends of the leafs rub on the other leafs. You can be cheap and cut up pieces of a plastic antifreeze container to use or have a leaf spring shop drill a hole in the ends of the leafs and pop in legit friction pads.
