Took the jeep to the dunes and like a total dumbsh*t I left the sunroof open and got sand all up on my sh*t! (venting anger) anyhow the damn thug wouldn't open or close properly the dealer quoted me $500-$1000 to clean or possibly repair! I said F it and went to the store got air and and T25 torque tool and cleaned ER out myself took a good 2 hours to get all the sand out. I also had to completely remove glass. If anyone makes my same dumb mistake get at me for more info here my DIY and Yes I had a blast in the dune the hemi gave me no troubles

Man I cant bring myself to sand blasting my new car. Maybe a 1960 willy. Sand has messed up a lot mechanisms.Looking at that is like getting kicked in the sack.Best wishes on your cleansing process.

Looks great, I like the look of those 33's. What are you running for wheel spacers? I believe you had 1.75" spidertracks if I remember correctly?? Not sure if you're still using the same ones.
