Put another fuel pump in mine today. That's the 2nd one in seven days. It is a Airtex and the quality is poor. The first one was leaking out of the top of the assembly. I would prefer to have a better pump but nobody has one in stock. So glad I cut a hole in the floor.

First pic looks like a drop dead sexy jeep. Second pic I'm sorry but you don't have my support, you kinda dubbed it out :/ that's fine though everyone is entitled to do whatever they like best. I'm just jealous of what you're working with, I would do horrible things for an 04 overland

Ordered my lift from Nick @ KOLAK PERFORMANCE!!!! All the positive comments that i have read about him on this forum were 100% accurate; he is super helpful... we discussed my hopes/dreams/aspiration for my DD, and in the end i know i'm going to get a great look and an even better ride. So excited! Early Christmas for my WJ this year...

Sooooooo, what did you order?! I ordered OME HD Coils through Nick, great guy to work with. Should be getting here in a week or two.

Now to be on topic because I've been so off topic lately...

I got my PA horn back in, found a great spot in the ARB air dam and bolted it up... SO much louder than being in the engine bay, I tested it out and it echoed across my entire apartment complex




Also swapped my factory headunit back in, my aftermarket one was getting pretty old... It didnt look right in the dash, it didnt work right with the steering wheel controls, and it was just another flashy thing for me to deal with when parking somewhere. Plus now I get my changer back

on the wifes wj, i got both axles re-installed, the old motor, torn down (found out cyl 8 rod bearing went bad), and started swapping stuff to the new crate motor.


edit: went to install the oil pan, and decided to look at the inside of the shiny new engine when something caught my eye. It was a bolt that didnt look to be quite tight, i could see the gap between the head and the bearing cap, so i grabbed it and sure enough finger tight!!! I started looking at all the other bolts and they were all tight and they all had paint marks on them to show the were torqued. This one had no paint mark and was obviously overlooked! Big to advanced powertrain solutions. Had i not bought this motor from a 3rd party i would be furious with them.

I was able to drive to NY today and picked up my new rugged ridge front mats, my Husky rear cargo liner, new black chrome lug nuts, new Wix Fuel Filter, and IRO Steering Equalizer.

Hoping the filter will help my MPG.

However, don't know if I'll be keeping the IRO steering equalizer since I just got rid of my DW yesterday....bad TRE's.

I'm at 4 3/4" lift, should I bother with steering equalizer or just sell it?

Thanks.
