See above question . A to Z makes nice stuff , I have some of it myself . But the fit and finish on the Rokmen stuff is at a different level . They both do the same job , but ones a little prettier than the other . I have dealt with the guys at Rokmen and Zach at A to Z , both offer great customer service .

I skimmed through until I saw pictures

Ended up ordering the Rokmen Mercenary front bumper with the tube, fairlead, and light mounts. Also got the Rokmen steering skid.

Was planning on getting the AtoZ sliders with steps, but they were closed by the time I got back from the gym. I have to call to get the JF discount.

You're right about the customer service, they've both gotten back to me extremely quickly.

Well, I clearly missed this yesterday. Impeccable taste. My front bumper has been on for 2 months and I STILL always turn to look at it when I walk away.

Agreed. I love the look with the blue filtered lightforce lights on it shown in their stock photo as well.

Thats one of the things that drew me to it. Personally, im going with blacked out or smoked offroad lights. However, with Misty being silver... That would look sharp.

Considering something like this, but with an 8" sub.



Anyone in the area any good with fiberglass?

So Misty has been leaking just a tiny bit of coolant. I don't yet know where the leak is coming from, but at 135k miles, I figured it's time to replace the radiator as some general maintenance.

There has also been an annoying vibration between 2000 and 2400 rpms or so. Why do things always go wrong when I finally have the money to upgrade! I guess it's better than not having the money to fix the problem at hand...

The squeak problem is still lingering as well.. I really need to take a ride around to find the problem area.

Yeah... that just reminded me. I have to check my front axle u-joints. Should have done that before the A to Z party. Ill figure it.

Cheers to jeep-debt!

I honestly haven't seen the rockers yet. I left for NYC Friday afternoon, and went straight to my dads place on Sunday until around 930 when I went straight to bed. I wont even get home tonight until around 10, but I'll be sure to take some pictures soon!

Seems the vibrations are around 2000-2400 and 2600-3000 range. The worst is in 3rd and 4th gears. I'm suspecting u-joints. Any thoughts from anyone?

I also suspected the u-joints. Turns out it was the cv joint in the front driveshaft. However, I only got the vibrations at a particular speed in one gear- and I could hear it when I was coasting to a stop.
