They installed easily and put my sway bar angle back to normal. A little tough to put back on if your on uneven ground though. I've been doing some research on the Anti-Rock , and I may graduate to that eventually as funds allow.
Ordered up a little something to help take care of the TC drop I had on my shovel. I opted for the rubber bushing vs. the poly to help quiet the added engine vibes I suspected I was gonna have with this mount....
I ended up having to fab a bracket to space the cat mount back to the length it originally was to get the muffler to clear the shovel. Had I got the UCF skid, it probably wouldn't have been an issue. Hopefully down the road I can scrounge up the coin to get the UCF skid.
That took care of the TC pucks and only a very,very slight vibe only on hard acceleration from a dead stop. I can live with that for now.
Paid a visit to a local 4WD Hardware store and picked up a reciever hook. The Olympic rear bumper I installed had no D-rings, and I had to remove the factory tow hook from the frame to mount the bumper, so for $10 problem solved.
Next project was to do something about my chaulked up faded fender flares. I had a fair bit of trail graphics on the sides of the jeep, so I decided to remove the flares for painting and while they were off, took the polisher to the jeeps paint. Here's what the flares looked like before painting.....
I first cleaned them with APC and a grey scuff pad, rinsed them and wiped em down with rubbing alcohol. Then another wipe down with a wax/grease remover. Applied a coat of adhesion promoting primer, and finally, 3 coats of SEM trim black. You can also see another recent purchase of some gas filler door bling compliments of Bestop....
A little adventure to Indian Valley Resevoir. Saw this poor fellow who got a little too close to the water and asked us for help. After getting them unstuck it was time for some fire trail exploring....
A recap of where things sit at this point:
OME 2.5 HD lift
OME steering stabilizer
BFG 31"X 10.50 KM M/T's
Bestop gas door bling
Bestop Safari top, Duster, Windjammer combo
K&N replacement air filter
Interstate green top batttery
Redline synthetic oil in trany and transfer case
Modil 1 synthetic engine oil
Rokmen steering box skid
JKS Quicker discos
UCF Low Profile TC mount
Olympic rear bumper w/reciever
Spare tire cover
Warn M8000 winch & Warn winch plate
Jeep rubber floor mats
Modified factory front bumper
Misc recovery gear(tow straps, D-rings, gloves, tools etc.)
Warrior Rockbarz rocker/steps
Repainted factory fender flares, polished jeep's paint(clay bar'd, machine compound, polish, sealer, wax)
Next on the list: upgrade the factory stereo system. I have an existing Alpine HU from another project hanging out. It's an older one (bout 12 years old), but still works fine. 15watts X 4 RMS w/sub out. I'll install that, see how it sounds and go from there. I'm pretty sure I'll be upgrading the factory speakers next.
