At this point the mods are kind of on a hold while I save up for something not Jeep related, but I figured I'd post up what some future plans are. More or less in order of how I plan to approach them.

BFG T/A KO 33x12.5 R15 (and sell BFG T/A KO 31x10.5 r15 & Grizzly wheels)
Sell Smittybilt front bumper and get something smaller (Metalcloak? Aluminum, 52" lo-pro caps, hi shackle mount) (eventually add a stinger/loop)
Sell JKS Quicker Discos (#2001 for 2.5"-6" lift) and get Antirock
Savvy Aluminum double adjustable CA (already have rear uppers in the closet)
Adams DS & Rough Trail SYE OR Tom Woods & AA SYE
Poison Spyder Hood Louver
AtoZ Fab rocker guards
MCE Flexible fenders + JK turn signals
Uniden Pro520XL CB + 3' Firestik
Bed line interior Mostaliner

If I still lived in Texarkana that'd be a possibility, but now that's 7.5hrs away so I don't think so.

Got my LED dome lights installed today. Way brighter than the OEM bulb that's been in it and it only cost $2.76! Oh and I have a job interview tomorrow with O'Reilly Auto Parts!

So I talked to my mom today and I'll be gettin my new tires this weekend! The only problem is, my Jeep pulls to the side a little bit even though Firestone said my alignment was fine and she doesn't want to put new tires on with it pulling. Any ideas what could cause the pull if alignment is "fine"?

Edit: I'm going to try un-bolting the front trac bar, jumping on the bumper and then re-adjusting the TB when I get home on Friday or Saturday.

Swap your front tires from side to side and see if the pull follows

I'll try that if I can't convince my mom that the trac bar is causing it, she won't have a clue what I'm talking about and will say ok


Also my tires got shipped to Discount Tire today and I will be getting those along with my new wheels swapped on tomorrow. Whoop!
As of today I finally have a job. I will start on Tuesday at O'Reilly Auto Parts! That means I can save up for that not Jeep related item, and then get back to Jeep stuff quicker

Today I painted the axle shafts black to match the new tires and wheels. Then I got the top and doors off I'd forgotten how free it feels.

I plan on buying a Metalcloak bumper to replace my Smittybilt. Aluminum frame, hi-mount shackle system, and I'm thinking the 52" Hi-crawler caps. I'll add a hoop later on, but any opinions of the end caps? Also maybe ordering Antirock soon.

Edit: I put in the order for my new Metalcloak bumper! Once that comes in I'll take off my Smittybilt and put it up for sale. Hopefully get $175 for it to help re-cooperate some of the costs. I didn't have any issues with Smitty powdercoating, but this bumper sticks out too much when I'm trying to reach into the engine bay.

Edit2: Phone confirmation of shipment today while I was at work!

Currie anti rock ordered this morning! So now I'll be selling my OE swaybar and my JKS quicker discos.

Edit: Email shipping confirmation!
