drove from southern NC to central NJ. 9 hour drive, average about 80 the whole way (going with the flow of traffic). jeep did great, no issues what so ever. was doing 95 at one point following an BMW M3, and seemed to handle great for a SUV. no complaints here. best truck ever!

tinted 20% front driver/passenger, and 5% the rest of the WJ by myself

i then didnt wanna spend 100 + bucks on new headlights so i wet sanded them and buffed it out. it turned out nice but there's internal blemishes so i guess i'll order new ones anyway.

since the headlights were off, took out every single bulb (except high beam) and replaced them to whites (blinkers, parking and HID low beam)

certifit.com The laredos have yellow turn signal lens, all the limiteds I've seen have chrome bezels with clear lens, the overland I saw had black bezel with celear lens. At least that is what I have seen driving around looking at lights before I ordered mine. Oh ya they come with the head light bulbs to.

on topic: i filled her with gasoline and washed all the salt off. maybe ill take some hub to fender measurements later so that when i do install the lift ill know how much i really gained over spacers
may be obvious, but did you try twisting them out of eachother instead of pulling them apart?
