Just ordered an OME HD kit from Kolak! Also ordered Cree superbright backup LEDs, a replacement foglight (one is cracked), and an interior LED kit. Just in time for vacation to start. Now hopefully it all gets here relatively quickly...

be ready for about a month wait for the lift. It's well worth it though!

Thanks! And the wait isn't too big of a deal since I haven't even figured out how/where I am going to put it on (my garage is really tiny). But I figured it would be a good thing to get it ordered now so that down the road when I do want to put it on, it will be there (hopefully).

Installed my Cree backup lights and the "HID" LED interior lights...pretty nifty! (Sorry it is light out so you can't really tell but in the top picture, the new light is on the passenger side and the old light is on the driver side. In the bottom picture the new light is on the driver side and the old light is on the passenger side.) And I programmed the HomeLink thing. Works better than my other garage door opener!

Washed, waxed, and did some random painting today (plastidiped the spare to see how it looks and bedlined the step thing on the rear bumper). I'm quite happy with how it all turned out! I think tomorrow I need to do all my wheels...

Now I am just waiting for my OME HD to come in. Shouldn't be too long now!

One piece of my lift has shown up so far (rear springs). I got to thinking...should I replace the UCAs while I am ripping all of that apart? I have 99k miles and don't really want to go back in there. I am going to make an attempt to not be too rough on this Jeep so hopefully I won't need to ever replace them, but, as I said, I don't want to tear everything apart again. Anyway, suggestions?

Finally got the last box for the lift. Now I just need the time and space to put it on!
