I replaced the parking brake shoes and hardware last night. That stuff is not cheap at all. I ended up having to pull the actual mechanisms that the cables connect to, both sides were seized.

Oh yeah, he would go all night if you'd let him. He hasn't been able to keep a rope in one piece.

I really like my Rokmens, the things are bomb proof. If you decide you want them I could be persuaded to part with mine instead of hacking them and extending them Seriously though, they are beefy and the tig welding is gorgeous!

I do like the Rokmens, my rear uppers are Rokmens and I haven't had any issues with them.

Took the Jeep out for the first time this year...The snow was deep and hard to get thru. We had to turn around after only making it about 3/4 of a mile in 3 hours....too many downed trees in the path.

Deep snow...

I'm horrible at updating this Haha. I did score some free JK Headlights from work today, and I had $20 on my rewards card at autozone, so I was able to get the pigtails for free as well. Can't complain about a free Headlight upgrade.

If it's not too late, look into pigtails from Amazon. The tails I bought for my harness/light upgrade were like $3 for ceramic super duper high temp connectors. Free shipping to boot. Just a thought.
