Fuel filter, alignment, and rotated tires to see if that is the reason I had a pull to the left.

I'd like to shoot the engineers at Jeep for that fuel filter design. What a PITA.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. You can see that there is about 1 inch of fender gone behind the tire, the back inch of the cladding has been cut off and it is still in place:

Looks nice,

My goal is to keep it as low as possible with 35" tires, trim the belly up some and clearence the rear fenders also 3" or 4" springs. Are you going to cut your fenders too or just leave them like that?

I left them like that for a while, but they aren't like that anymore. I cut the fenders and installed Iceland flares:

I really like the Iceland bumpers, but the only thing is that you have to have the flares for it to look right, otherwise it sticks out way past everything. Do they have an option that makes it no so wide, so you don't have to get the flares?

No,you just have to live with it that way if you dont get flares.I love the looks of the flares but not the cutting of my fenders so for now i will just deal with bumper sticking out,it really dosent bother me anyways but some dont like that look,maybe with bumper sticking out might save front fender if i were to drop off a rock or something like that,it's just not that big a deal to me and maybe in a couple years when i get more miles on my jeep i wont mind cutting fenders then.

Found my blower motor cutting in and out, seems like the connector at the controller block is the culprit. I know about the connector melting, but I gotta set up a jumper jig to read the current draw. Is it usually the motor itself going bad or what that causes the connector to melt? It is AZC.
