started installing the front tow hooks i got from bama. Took off the front bumper cover. Sanded, primed with rust inhibitor, and bedlined the core support. It took a little longer than expected to straighten the one bent mounting bracket. So by time I got it straight and painted I figured it was getting late and I would just drive home without the bumper cover on and finish the install tomorrow. On the highway i noticed a slight wirling sound and figured it was maybe just a piece of gravel stuck in the tire. A few minitues later I got hint of burning plastic but thought maybe it was just the car next to me. Well when i got off the highway and to the gas station i realized it was my jeep i was smelling. First pic is before i left work, Second pic is at the gas station. Now some would say the wheel wells were "rubbing", I say my jeep was "self trimming". See its not just me, even my jeep wants 33's

I put a set of the Destination A/Ts (245/70R16) on my ZJ last week. Only got about 30 miles on them so far, but I'm loving them. What size are yours?

245/70R16 on our 2000 Limited - probably about 30 miles so far too but yes so far I've been really impressed. Really smooth and quiet. Took off a set of Goodyear Triple Treads that were completely shot, so now it feels like a new Jeep.

Installed a set of bilstien 5100's on the rear. Now it doesn't drive down the road like a fish, and the clunk in the rear is finally gone. Only down side is now the front shocks feel bad, guess I'll have to get some 5100's on there as well.

Replaced all of the lights behind the manual climate control panel. Originally thought that only one was burned out, and it turns out that only one was still functioning. And then that one burned out in the midst of doing repairs. I had a hard time getting the replacement lights to work until I took the leads on the bulbs and bent them outwards before placing them in the plastic collar. Now I have a fully bright panel again!

Waiting to hear from the company I ordered my engine from. I am looking around for a good set of tow hooks to put up front and to see if I can find one that will fit in my hitch.

Installed some 2" spacers up front, now I dont bottom out going over bumps, and it makes up for how much it was sagging with the bumper. So technically im at around 6.5"-7" of lift in front, and 5.5" in back
