Well I thought I had finally had something good to post about but alas Im not sure if I did something wrong or what... Ordered a FatBobs 2" BB pucks and shocks, got it on, love the height increase right on 2" around... Even git her sitting level. Only thing now is the rear end bounces around like it's on a trampoline.. Everything is hooked up correctly and the front is firm. Any ideas what is going on with all if this bounce?

Drove up and down some wet/ muddy fire trails for a couple of hours after a Land Nav. FTX. Was impressed (again) at just how capable the WJ is off road. There were a couple of WK's there too. We had a blast.

Also, removed the majority of my sound system (5 subs and two amps) and put them up for sale on CL. Time (hopefully) for that custom box build. If anybody in Virginia is interested, they're dirt cheap...

Speaking of dirt, the picture doesn't really do it justice because the Jeep's already the color of dirt.

Sounds like the shocks arnt doing there job. Swaybar connected?
Post up some pics of the springs, spacers and shocks and someone might spot something
I ran that same setup for a year or so and I had no problems.

It's dark out now... but def will in the morning to show them. I'm wondering if the fact that they are upside down on the rear if that has any bearing on the matter? The front are placed right side up and are firm as can be... Flip the rear the same way? The last shocks I had placed on I had them this way with no issue. But any input helps people! Thanks a bunch already.

Haven't had the jeep all week as my dad took it for some skiing adventures... Came home while i was outside working on the heater core on my friends MK3 vr6 gti, and the brand new moog ss i put on had the sleeve slip out of the eye on the SS. The bolt and everything is all still in tact, i guess ill need to get a big washer on that side.

Changed the oil, and sprayed the tails darker then they were. Pics where right before I hit some mud, now its not clean anymore..

I kept with my original style which was keep all the white, and a 2 inch strip of all the colors. I drove past a parking lot where cops usually do their paper work and asked one if they where too dark (the sun was set) and he said they were fine so looks like im all legal.
