But, seriously...ouchies.
but seriously, you could have done a major upgrade.

Yeah for sure. Aftermarket D60 swap would have been about the same cost.

I never had death wobble until I bashed my steering stabilizer on a rock and it was locked up and bent. I have gone through everything in the suspension and everything is good to go, got it aligned a month ago. Dunno, but throwing the new one on completely killed the issue.

Yeah I learned how easy it was when i painted my grill.and installed the hellas. Totally worth every penny, it makes it look much newer, and i didn't care for all the Orange on the stock lareado headlights.

mounted the CB in the WJ today, still have to wire it up and get an antenna.

i wanted to mount it in the ashtray, buy mine was just a little too wide for it, so the 2nd best spot, for me.

Fixed the driver seat bracket, replaced a blinker bulb that I had no idea was out, put in some white LED License Plate bulbs, and installed HID's. I'm really enjoying starting to get familiar with my Jeep. And since I sold my Mustang, I'm gonna start having fun with the Jeep more and more. Already got some plans to lift it and throw on some bigger tires, now waiting for some funds...lol.
