Installed my iSimple adapter this weekend. It was real simple and cost me about $50 for everything from amazon.

Cussed it out a few times Used a torch to heat the lower track bar bolt up until it was glowing read then with a brand new 15mm I was able to thread it out. Only problem was it was stuck and rotating the sleeve in the bushing so I had to cut said bolt off on both the inside and the outside of the bushing. Then got my Jks in now I am just waiting to eat then I am going to get a tap because someone thought it was a good idea to hit a bolt on top of the threads to get the bar out before I could return wit new blades for a sawsal so now it won't thread back in... S.M.D.H. he was instantly fired.

As I roll down the trail,I hope my traction will not fail.But if I spin & begin to slide,please dear lord protect my ride

Bot, fixed the air bag light... My fault for snipping a wire when in there before. I also, trimmed the arb bumper, my fender a bit and levelled it with a 3/4" front spacer puck.

My tensioner pulley's bearing died on me not to long ago and that of course cause the pulley to kill it self. Glad I was by a Pepboys when I noticed it

The pulley self destructed on me

No noises at all was driving down the road and all of sudden no power steering, motor heated up quick and radiator blew out anti-freeze. I shut her down then and pushed it down the road a two blocks to get off the main road and waited for the tow truck,

Ditto

Put a new battery in mine, and had to replace the neg terminal end due to corrosion. Going to replace the pos side next weekend as preventative maintenance and to help tidy up the winch wiring.

New battery because I did this yesterday.
