Anyway, hope you enjoy it, I considered it myself about a year ago.
Im not sure I didn't asked him. But Im sure the 9" components will work just fine for me cause im not changing anything for a while haha

How did you install taillight guards? Mine has 3 tabs for screws. Two are obvious, and it bounces around a lot. But there is a 3rd one in the bottom. Where does that one go. Bottom of light itself? Or did you get the style you have to drill?

With mine, bottom tap screws into the bottom of the light housing. Have had mine on for a year and a half, no problems.

Just back from the muffler shop, they welded my heat shield on a mini cat, and cut off the two spinning bolts from the skid plate, FREE! Yay! Now I can change my T-case fluid, and replace the 2 driveshaft seals as well.

They are wrapped around the mini cats on the 2002 4.7. Kinda like a small coffee can. Mine rattled when I'd start it, or at certain RPM's. Glad it is fixed, and NO, you shouldn't have a rattle under there.

Time for a new mechanic I guess. It was literally a 30 second job for the muffler shop. I think it took longer to get the jeep in the air, then it did to fix it.
