^ its alright man, we all make mistakes like that once in a while. But when you get in over your head you have us here to help you. We aren't all professional mechanics (Some are, I'm one of them) but there's a lot of collective expierence here. One thing I've realized is that someone else on here has probably faced the same problems you will and they always lend a solution or advice to help others. I have to say I've never been on a forum that's so helpful.

Just got a new set of wheels and tires. And new rubber ribbed jeep floor mats. I'll put up pics soon. Absolutely amazing set up now on stock height. Km2's on 16x8 pro comp 7031 flat black back spacing 4.5". No rubbing problem. Nothing. Looks very agressive. And rides great. Just got it yesterday so I haven't been wheeling yet but I will post pics soon. Serious amazing set up though. I'll update specs too on the tires. Can't remember exactly.

A few more pics. Absolutely love my new set up. No rubbing cause tires arent too wide and the backspacing made the stance wider and more agressive. Looks so amazing. Ahh! I love it.

My wife blew the head gasket on my 99 GC Laredo last night. Anyone got any info on how tough this is to replace? I know I should search, but I am at work with a blown up Active Directory server at the moment also.

Freaking Happy New Year to me.

Oh and by the way

Should have relocated the switch to the underside of where i did mount it. I forgot i wanted to keep a stock look and just got it done lol
can we get a pic of how bright it is when the lights are on? I am about to do this same thing to mine...I am in just in debate of what lights to use.

Chrome wont get you home! Better black it out if you wanna see your baby tonight.

my lights seem great, not as bright as the leds but none the less good. I opted for two lamps to spread the lighting a little more

4.0, I had replaced the water pump a couple of months ago, but it never did resolve the issues.

Grease the bushings then either press or hammer them in. There supposed to be a tight fit. I'm not sure what type of joint IRO uses but it should either use a screw in or a snap ring retainer.
