This Jeep had a 2 inch budget boost on it and 31 inch tires. My wife and I discussed this and since Jake, was going to be a college student for the next four years, we figured it would be better to give him a bone stock Jeep.
We did this for a few reasons:
1. Keep the cost of replacement parts for him down
2. Replace some badly worn tires
3. He can make it "His Own" Jeep
First up was to remove the 31 inch tires. A guy in a local club I belonged to wanted to replace his stock rims and tires with bigger rims and tires. I had decent rims to trade so we haggled a bit and I gave him $200.00, my rims and I got 4 stock rims with brand new Firestone tires on them.
Next, get rid of the spacer lift and replace the shocks. I ordered four Monroe shocks from Rockauto and set about removing the spacers.
You can see how bad off the bump stops were, so I ordered new bump stops. The spacer is in the background.
Here is the retaining bolt for the bump stop cup (Notice the hourglass shape at the end of the bolt. I'm surprised they came out in one piece.
Everything on the right rear completely clean and painted. Still waiting on shocks.
