Shackles that long are pretty dangerous. I would get rid of those ASAP.

agreed! and make sure if youre using that plow alot that you clean the jeep like crazy after to keep as little rust from growing as possible.. Rust and white dont go well together

Like these? http://www.amazon.com/Jeep-Seat-Cove.../dp/B00141DAJ2

Not the best quality by any means but they fit the color scheme pretty well.

Looks like you need a fan shroud too. I tried to sell the old one off my 2.5 and couldn't give it away, so you may get away with getting one for next to nothing. They really help with cooling.

I've been told this, it runs at 210 degrees solid so it could only help I'm sure. Anyone know where I could get one?

Nice looking jeep! I like what you did with the krylon fusion, gives me some ideas when i get half doors eventually. i can never find them to match my black interior. Any good spots to wheel in NC? my family was looking to move to the holly springs area a few years ago. good luck!

Yeah the fusion worked great for me! I just need to finish the dash! And well for wheeling, uwharrie is gonna be the biggest place besides the coast but there are all kinds of small trails EVERYWHERE! I'm meeting up with some guys today to hit a trail in DOWNTOWN Hillsboro Haha (like I said, everywhere) Good luck if you do decide to move, I love it here in NC.
