Just ordered rear wheel bearings, axle seals, and retainer ring for both sides from Kolak - never knew a purchase could go so smoothly!

I'll be installing the Rancho SS tonight - will post pictures after completion

Keeping it stock height or going higher? It's looking good, what made you go with the Cooper's?

I'll be going higher in the next year or so hopefully - The Cooper's were the Fleet Farm special at the time, buy 3 get 1 free. I made the mistake of going 225/65 so it would just look goofy if I lifted it with those tires. They ride decently on the the highway and in the snow. Next set will definitely be more aggressive.

How much higher are you talking? I like Coopers, but last time the WJ needed rubber I couldn't find any deals on them. Did you paint your grille? Cloth or leather interior?

I'd like to go 3" - Fleet runs sales on them once in awhile - just so happens I needed tires when they ran the sale - I was going to go with STT's but money was tight. I did paint my grille, but could use some touch up. I have the cloth seats, but I haven't seen them in any other Jeep before. They are more rugged than the cloth ones.

Could you post a picture or two of the seats? I'm curious now about the ones you've got
