Oh I should tell you, If you get a knocking noise in the rear like I did after installing them you'll need the longer sleeves and bolts too.

The washers didn't work for me, if you know someone that works at a machine shop they could make them and just buy the correct bolts.

well if you put down your purse and use a little M A N it might not be so hard....j/k they are a pain, but washers from lowes fixed the problem of them sliding from side to side for me.

on a different note, i happen to be the new proud owner of a 37 in flat tire with only 100 miles on it. not quite sure how you manage to pick up a 3/4 in drill bit driving down the road, and not only have it go in through the treads but come out the side wall as well. luckly it happened a mile from my house and was able to limp home before it went flat. on a good note though i got the tires from dicounttiredirect.com so one quick call and my free replacement was on its way today at no charge. well except for the warranty on the new tire. a well spent 45 dollars.

I didn't do it but my wife did.






Luckily she is fine but the Jeep is a total loss according to the insurance company. They cut us a check so we took that and along with a few more thousand came home with this.



It's an 04' SE, it doesn't have all the features our old limited had but it runs and drives good.

One thing it didn't come with is a tow package. We have a pop up camper we pull around quite a bit during the summer so I am going to need something. Did a little searching and found OEM is the way to go as the others sit too damn low.

My question is though, Am I gonna need a tranny cooler? The camper isn't super heavy but don't want to burn up my tranny just because I was cheap.

What do you guys think? Tranny cooler necessary?

Hit black ice going 65 mph, fish tailed, caught the tires on the shoulder and rolled down the ditch 4 times.

Pretty traumatic, she now drives worse than a grandma but at least shes OK.

Working at DIscount tire... we saw a TON of cool stuff in tires. Like a 15 inch price of rebar in a f350 tire. it was messed up. but the best thing in the world are those Discount certificates. I got a nail in the sidewall and found it as I pulled into work, I had the certs, so I went in and replaced it with a brand new tire!

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

Wait... The jeep rolled 4 times and you still managed to drive it?! I always figured a rollover would be totaled. Pics?

I don't think so. They bought a new to them 04. From the looks of the pics, there was pretty much no way to drive it...
