@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!

Is it broken?

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...

Is it broken?

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!

Ordered the "kolak" lift... the suspension needed to be replaced so that was as good of an excuse as any to upgrade.
