Did you replace all your ties? And yeah a alignment will help but not If the DW is not fixed also check the balance of you tires, then check your ss

I didn't replace all of them, just one that was bad that I knew of...I also replaced the lca's a week ago...I didn't think a ss caused DW...from my knowledge. It is the oem one with 130 thousand on it.

It doesn't. An SS hides DW, it's like a bandaid on a much bigger situation.

Added up all my reciepts on parts'n upgrades and repairs, to the insurence tax/value guy, who tax my wreck.
Found out that i was 15000$ into modding my Jeep, wow auch, well well, well spended.
Cant wait to see his Face, as they offered to pay for the parts ontop of vehicle value.

New to the site, sorta. Just joined anyways. This weekend I replaced the water pump, thermostat, belt and radiator hoses on my 01 4.0. It was a beating. I'm used to working on XJ's and there is a bit more room in the front, and no need to remove fans or shrouds. Good learning experience though!

Finally got the fog retrofit in. So far so good. Not sure exactly how high I should have the beam, but output is really good, and very clean cutoff. Will have to do some output shots.




The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

WJ Limited hitch bezel

WJ front skid/brush plate

2 WJ rear hatch struts (look new)

Pair of WJ front BLK tow hooks.

Nice to be finally hitting the JYs again.











Also used the struts to replace my original 13yr old ones. No more vice grips. Forgot how hard it was to shut it with good struts.
Lucky you. One of these days I'll be looking for a hitch, bezel, and harness for my WJ. That, and about thirty other things!

About time! Ha ha, it looks good, though. Looking forward to some output shots.
