@PowderHound, thanks! Now I am thinking about 265/75/16 tires. Just I have to find out how much triming is required and if bumpstops are needed.

i used irocs idea of using the napa coolant bottle (but mine is a 4.0 so its a little dif) and got rid of the tire catcher washer bottle didnt even have to lenghten the hoses but i did have to lengthen wires



there is also a mount on the bottom kinda a pain to get to but it works....and there is still plenty of room to get to the shock bolt

Interesting... I was wondering what to do when/if I lifted my Jeep.

That sounds like a great low center of gravity setup. I can't wait til I can do the same!

Changed the spark plugs (yes, champion copper), took off the throttle body to clean it and the IAC while I was in there, and changed out the battery terminals since the negative terminal was breaking from so much on-off action. Started right up when I was done, idled well and no codes. Amazingly, I had no problems with any bolts, boots or plugs and it was the first time I had done any of this.

You didn't have a problem with the passenger rear most? That one took me about 10 mins on its own.

But, fyi, your plugs look good!

It was supposed to snow about a foot starting at midnight. Well, its 830 and it started snowing.

There might just be some snow videos with the WJ coming later tonight...

Not really, no. I took the nut off the oil dipstick bracket so I could make more room for myself. The nut was stuck and pulling up the stud, so messing with that was the biggest hassle and prob not something I needed to do. It did give me more room to play around though.

I've had the plugs for about 6 months and have been putting it off because of the horror stories, and then it went smooth without a hitch.

I was very happy with the state of the plugs for a 162k engine. Thanks!

Oh, and I took off the center dash pieces and sealed up the vent edges as well as I could with foil duct tape.

A productive day for the Jeep!
