Okay for anyone looking. I has this annoying rattle coming from my passenger seat when no one is sitting in it. It kind of rattles back and forth and feels loose. I've checked the mounting bolts, they are tight. It still rattles though. Anyone have an idea?

Okay, I'm about to start doing a little research on what I what/need to do. Right now with the 4" lift and 1.25" body lift the Jeep sits a little to tall for my liking. I'm thinking of going to 3" coils and leaving the body lift on for the 35's when these tire wear out...

I have been noticing that I have been getting worse than normal gas mileage around 165 mile to a take of gas or 85 miles to a half a take... This seems bad even for a Jeep any ideas?

Okay, I may try some of that. because 85 mile for a half a tank sounds band even for a lifted jeep on 33's

Could be O2 sensor. You should take them out and see how damaged they are. If they look pretty bad, replace them.

abc was here - Nah I'm gonna keep the body lift because it goes with the savvy under armor.

afusco1222 - Thanks I'll look into the o2 sensors.

Okay update! We had a little snow the other day. I went out and did a little wheeling. I didn't get any action pictures, it was a little too dark and I didn't have a camera.

I did get this one picture isn't that good, but it's arose the road from my house.

Then the next day me and my friend were going to get some lunch before work, and he slid into the ditch across the road and got stuck so the jeep had to get him out!

Next mods will be new shocks, some rear sway bar end links as I have no sway bar right now, and some Racine or spyderlock bead lock wheels!

Well seems as though I'm just talking to my self... Anyways for anyone looking I am about to get some tax money back, and will be replacing my shocks. I have been looking at the Zone 4" shocks, OME shocks, or The Rancho 9000. Of course these range from least to most expensive. Ofcourse I've heard a lot of great things about the OME and Rancho Shocks, But I just need some shocks to hold me over till I can redo the rear shock mounts on the back and out board them. So should I go ahead and get the rancho or Ome or just some zone shocks?

Maybe someone will chime in... I have a question about control arms anybody with a 4" lift and Currie controls arms have any round about measurements what leangth they should be? I set mine to what Currie's website said, but it seems they are a little short. I need to get it up on some jack stands and take a look but seem I could get more wheelbase out of it. Any suggestions?
