Alright soo now my jeep is finally kinda turning out.. (instead of looking like a soccer mom car)

I got my soft 8s from summit today and also my AFE intake form 4wheelparts.

Then I went to Discount tires and bought DUNLOP A/T like 500 something dollars.

im gonna have to get replacement leaf springs in the rear. cause they are sagging. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be a great help.

get a set of xj spring packs from the bone yard, take them apart, cut the eyes off of the main leaf an put it in your packs under your main leaf... should bring it up...looking good, although i did like it with the factory rims

hmm... ill try it.. I mean what would it be like 20 bucks for 2 leafs?


I was gonna get the RE BBB with the add a leaff but they guy was like it won work if your springs are sagging.

I might end up just buying 2" OME leaf spring replacement. but who knows.
thats alot more money..
