They've definitely made me reconsider mine, these things are nasty looking, if they do anything like what they look like they should off road, I'll be picking up a set for my next tire.

Headed to the stealership. They say they've got a bolt for me.We'll see.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Got the bolt this morning from the dealer. It was the right one. Yay.

Mike I am off Sunday through Tuesday. I figure it will be full of buttoning things up. You are welcome to help.

Robert... I can't say thanks until I come back alive from wheeling lol. But thanks anyways. You've been awesome. More help than I could have imagined. You gave my jeep your garage for two weeks while yours voluntarily slept in the wet spot. You've been great and I wouldn't be anywhere close without your help. So, pending a wheeling trip that I live through... Thanks.

I talked to Rod at TNT about my steering clearances. Because im already into the diff with the tie rod, he suggested I check out the new ORO Tru-turn steering for jk's. Essentially it changes the mounting of the tie rod in a pretty cool way along with raising it and pushing it a little farther from the diff to allow for aftermarket diff covers. I think it was cool of Rod to suggest another product when theirs didn't quite work out for me. Steve at ORO was awesome to work with and got me taken care of. The new steering ships tomorrow. Here's hoping I can return the tie rod ends I got to recoup some cost.

I forgot/was too busy to call the gear guy today but I will do so tomorrow. I don't know yet if I'm going to try to get the jeep down there yet or do it myself. If I take it down there, I'm going to have to borrow a trailer. I really don't want to drive it that far/fast all locked up front with no rear ds. Meh. No new pics today. I was busy with the dealership this morning. I promise I'll get some in the morning.

I wonder what the chances are of the rear diff being locked up too, and we just haven't noticed it because of the front being so prominent.

We'll be able to tell on Sunday when I put the new coils in. We'll jack up the rear and spin the tires.
