I'll also be doing my audio install during the weekends up here in the parking lot. I need to run my 4awg kit and Ihave dual 10's in a sealed enclosure going back there. I am strongly considering a BB but I'm afraid my stock tires might look weird. Oppinions?
the stock tiers on a 2" dont look dab just makes the jeep look taller.

04' Freedom WJ: Installed two new rotors, new pads and replaced left front hub assembly. Re-coated wheel wells with black rubberized coating and black spray painted wheel wells. Then a good washing to remove all the dragon fly's. They are thick this year

Put this back together..... was near being done when I discovered main harness to heater box did not get connected before I put dash back in.. I got a little more experience at removing this dash than I wanted, but it all worked out.

Changed both transmission filters, if you haven't done it do it. Shifts so nice now.

Signed up for the Jeep and truck club here at school, everybodys an enthusiast and I figured I'd join. They're very accepting of stock vehicles but I imagine my WJ will be lifted over the summer if not winter break. Anyways, there was a real nice WJ there I grabbed some pictures of. He had a rustys BB, some meaty tires, a good cb setup, and a rear aussie locker which he apparently did in the campus parking lot without the campus safety guys finding out (no work of the cars allowed here :-( )

Flexing and you can see a nice xterra off to the left and a sweet xj to the right

The rear tire is stuffed up real tight and such

Decent amount of suspension travel from a BB wouldnt you say?

Hub assembly, had to heat EVERYTHING. the last bolt holding the hub assy on took about 2 mins of solid heat from an oxi/acet torch before it would budge with the air impact, almost melted my tie rod end rubber....

Instead of uploading straight to JF I save their storage space/bandwidth and use third party companies like photobucket, theyre the fastest and easy. Sign up for a free account and upload your pictures. I choose 640x480 because theyre decently sized not obnoxiously big. Then once they're uploaded hover over them and copy the "IMG Code" straight into your thread reply. It has the tags already to make the picture show. do a new line after each image and put your text in accordingly

Oh and to keep my second post "on topic" I PM'ed Keith asking for another JF sticker for my WJ. Hopefully I can get through to him I really want one for the WJ. Plus, white Jeep + White sticker = clean and sharp look

Compcrasher - That WJ had a 4.5" Rusty's, not a BB. Has 33s on it too.

Did a turkey baster power steering fluid change! Didn't see anything specific in the lube and maint portion of the FSM, then stumbled across this on wjjeeps: MoparŪP/N 04883077 Hydraulic fluid / Power steering fluid (MS5931)
MS5931 IS THE ONLY FLUID THAT CAN BE USED FOR THE POWER STEERING SYSTEM. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Great.
On the other hand,

my new best friend



Changed TC fluid (yes I have the right fluid this time) Turkey basted out old brake fluid and bled out old fluid in lines. Inspected brake surfaces sprayed Disc Brake Quiet on pad backs greased caliper slide pins, rotated tires.



Is this typical, I see a lot of rust now that I am looking more closely. I'm not talking about the muffler (see my J-B weld along the seam, which I am not very confident in).


This is a little better



Thanks guys for the tips on posting pics / text!!
