No, I put a Banks monsters exhaust on it about 7 months ago. While I like the sound, the issues that I've had with it have made me regret buying the exhuast. For some reason my computer has issues opening up the instruction pages from MC's website, but I will keep those drill bits in mind, thanks

Wheel spacers showed up today. Now I need to find a torque wrench so I can install them.

I like where you're going with this! Looks very similar to what I'm planning. I have Metalcloak lowers that should be here tomorrow (ordering all 8 eventually of course) and have been waiting for a review on the track bar, and plan on doing the 3" Savvy springs as well. Looking forward to your installation and review.....

Thanks man. Im pretty excited to get everything installed. Its looking like Im not gonna be able to install everything until may tho due to a month long training in april. After a little more research i guess the MC tracbar is designed for their long travel system so I hope i dont have to bumpstop like crazy. I think my Savvy springs will be limited because i ordered shocks for 2.5 RC springs, but we'll see.

Put the wheel spacers on today and got an appointment set up to get the 33's mounted and balanced on thursday. Overall i like the new stance with the spacers on, even tho the tires throw more mud up now. Of course i had to go test the spacers out to make sure they work..they do.

Bonus pic of my dog. He thought the spacer was a toy, but he was having trouble picking it up.

Currie springs are in! I couldnt believe how fast they got here. The rough country springs that i ordered over a month ago still havent shown up, so needless to say i'm very impressed with Savvy right now.

My MC trackbar showed up today, along with the RC springs I ordered two months ago. I was not impressed with how they were packed. Heres a few pics; the new TB, a comparison of the Currie springs and RC springs and their packaging..and last is my pile of jeep parts that are waiting for me to have a free weekend to put them on.

So I took my Jeep to the auto hobby shop today to re-torque the spacer lug nuts. Got her up on the lift, and ended up stripping a lug nut trying to take the wheel off. Starting to think about ordering some new wheels and ditching the spacers. Figured I would make attempt #3 at swapping my steering stabalizer..with no luck. Bent the ***** out of my lug nut wrench trying to loosen up the lug nuts.

Got my pinion angle set right today, so no more vibes. Had to order drill bits to install my upeer CAs and my front trac bar, so hopefully if they come in this week, I am gonna try to put my lift on this friday. Might have to make some modifications to my front bumper to keep the Antirock from hitting it.
