Haha, I was pleasantly surprised when I cranked it up for the first time, it's very nice for the price. Only potential problem is it's loud as crap, I like it but others might not.

Your seat turned out nice! Are they all original or did you get them reupholstered? The drivers seat is shot in my jeep, I need to get a cover or get it redone.

Thanks,
The seats are stock. I plan on rebuilding the cushions though b/c right now I have my driver & passenger seat cushions swapped. Haha, so my side is great, but the passenger...not so much

Haha, thanks...it works pretty well.


Side note, I just had a really big interview, job wise.

I think it went well, so hopefully it did b/c it's something very related to the off-road community & it's a marketing thing.

I'll get pics later, but I made a "shield" for my intake today.

Basically, I just blocked off 2 of the cowl vents to keep the filter dry....er

I also took some measurements & will likely order an aimsoil dry filter very soon. I was very very pleased with how well the last one performed.

Picked up some aluminum today, to make alignments easier....measuring these will be much easier than measuring the tires. I think mrblaine posted the trick, or someone. Whoever posted it, thanks!...but I think it was Blaine

Shh....yes, I am...with no bump stops, basically. It's not an ideal setup, but as a temporary solution it works.

I'm going to order some jounce cups & bumpers for the front when I put the jk springs/shocks in...it should be nice running properly setup springs/shocks/bump spots

Oh, I was wondering how it rides lol..... And does it flex at all offroad? Can you even take it offroad? I'm considering just getting a budget boost for now since I can't afford new shocks right now.

I haven't wheeled since adding the spacers, but I could a little if I was careful about not flexing too much. If you adjusted your bump stops, you could probably run that setup fairly well.

The ride isn't any noticeably worse, & I'm usual pretty observant of those little changes.

You should consider jk shocks with a BB.....or paired with jk springs. Supposedly they ride well & they're all.over the place for cheap or even free of your know the right ppl.

Right now I have 2 full sets of jk springs & shocks, & an additional set of jk rear springs...much of which I got for free.

I'm going to basically pick & choose from the pile of jk stuff & find what fits my jeep the best, then sell the other parts.
