Put my trail wheels and tires on, spare on roof, took front bumper off, and packed it up ready for some fun tomorrow. It'll be the first trip to the Badlands in the WJ...anxious to see how the Quadradrive performs.

Nice, I am planning to go there soon with my WJ. Been there plenty but never with the WJ.

Thanks, Howler_GT (Mike), I still can't believe I left without the rear Addco sway bar! Now just a couple more pieces before my parts list for my lift is complete... How necessary is it to use extended front sway bar end links with a 3" lift?
You don't have to have them but discos are nice 😄

Replaced my rear wiper motor and wiper arm and both side view mirrors with heated. Just keeping me busy while I'm searching for the rest of my lift parts.

I always thought heated side mirrors were dumb, UNTIL the first time I went outside and cranked up the WJ on a freezing morning and came outside 10 minutes later and every piece of glass on the thing was crystal clear.

I've noticed a couple of times this past winter where they would've come in handy. It's a nice little upgrade.

Pulled the front driveshaft today to replace all the ujoints. I don't have the proper tools to remove them completely so I will have to get a mechanic buddy I work with to get them out of the shaft and to put the new ones in. I beat the heck out of them with a hammer and socket but that didn't do any good...They're stuck in there pretty good.

Also went and bought the pads for the rear brake job I'm doing on it tomorrow. I might end up getting new rotors as well, depends on how these look. As I was inspecting the rear end I noticed I've probably got a rear axle seal leaking onto the plate behind the rotors on both sides. Looks like I'll be getting those seals replaced before long as well.

Where did you get the mirrors? My drivers side anti glare stuff cracked and the whole thing is fogged up now.

Took her to the Badlands for her first time. All was going well until I dropped a front coil. Luckily I was able to flex her out good enough for my buddy to pop it back in. I'm totally impressed with the Quadradrive system and glad I held out for one with it. Can't wait to get back out there again.

Accidentally tested the integrity of the OEM Gas Tank skid when the back tires slid too hard off a rock. It works, for all those who might be wondering. LOL

Well I'm glad you like the QD system. I took mine out last week for a run in some pretty good mud and wound up having to replace the front ds ujoints. Probably something that was going to happen sooner rather than later but still..... But until I got high centered on those ruts I was real happy with the performance with my stock WJs QD. Now I just need to bust my arse and get a 3-4" lift under this bad boy and I'll feel a whole lot better when I go through that same hole again and don't get stuck.

I bought them from a member on here. My driver's side mirror is the same as your's, if it bothers me enough I'll separate the glass and just have heated.

Jack it up...Line up the holes (8 bolts per pinch weld)

A little tweak there and a little hammer here. (12 self tap screws per frame). I'm not a welder so don't even go there.

Not bad for some cheap protection from that off-camber tight trail slide.
Are those the "premium" or the "budget" sliders?
