Hmm, in the rust belt I don't think that would be a great plan. Looks cute but the boots hold in moisture= rust=junked shock.

I drove in some heavy snow for the first time in my WJ!!!! Put it in 4WD and had very few problems(nearly lost it twice, but no big deal). Much easier to drive in snow than my 5,000 lbs RWD 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue with a 318 V8.

Fwiw my 5100s came boots preinstalled so I left em just for the heck of it and kept an eye on them... the Bilstein boots have integrated drains and let out anything that gets in, but seeing as its a boot down design nothing really seems to collect in them anyways.

They have 4 drain holes in the bottom, I think they are more for when rocks fly off the tires and nick the shaft aren't they?

As you can see I do that allot
you were right... Was able to flip the shocks over without using a jack. They were soft as can be upside down and when I got them in right side up they seriously went back to the original firmness that they had when I first put them on. I guess now I should be able to figure out if I really do need that Addco bar... Details in the morning. Thanks for all the help WJ fam... You guys are seriously awesome. Here's to hoping I dont do any more noob moves...

Drove her for the first time since Thursday! Replaced bushings and hardware on rear sway links...the addco sure is tight! Weird not leaning with turns now. Also replaced the water pump and tensioner pulley. Runs cooler than before. Finally got the wiring and tubes straightened out and finished up the zj res swap. Sure is nice to be able to wash the love bugs off again!

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.
