Still need to buy my 2.5" lift, skink sliders, and do a tranmission fluid change with a new PML 42RLE pan and lubelocker gasket.
How hard is that install? The rocking back and forth on bumps is brutal sometimes.

Easy. Only took me about 1.5 hours, and that's only because it's much easier to do the front's with the wheel's off. So jacking up the jeep and taking the wheel on/off etc added time. Also the rear stock sway arms have a one-way bolt that spins freely that was a PITA to get off until i found the right tool and method.

If anyone else does this install, use clamping pliers on the rear bolts where the grease joint connects to the sway bar to allow you to hold the bolt's grease joint side while you remove the #18 nut on the opposing side.

Also to make the removal/install easier on the front sway link arms, make sure your jeep is on jack stands, remove the jack, and use the jack to lift up the lower A-arm bracket thing so there is no tension on the bolts.

Mattyvac, are the BWoody's any longer than the stock links? I can see they are beefier.

They are roughly the same size plus or minus and eighth of an inch. Most definitely beefier, that's the point of them

Drove her to Cape Cod today for a mini vacation. Started scoping locations for a little photo shoot. This may do for tomorrow!

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

I had almost 27k on mine when my rear driver was gone....but it was replaced with a lift. That's how you can justify the lift to your girlfriend!!!!!!!!

Installed the Steel Craft brushguard. Took about 1 hour and came out pretty good. Next will be the lights that I will mount to it.

Well, before I changed them, I'd get a funny smell every so often when I was messing around with the HVAC controls, so I figured it was time. Definitely breathing much better now!
