I am keeping mine... forever. There is a product called Majestic Solutions, Perfect 10.. it shines up faded plastic very well. My plasic has not faded because i look after them. I've seen the restoration on the WJ's that have all that plastic on the exterior lower panels... I also use it on all vinyl materials to protect and polish. Its awesome.

I should not this is not my company nor.do I know who owns it lol... so no agenda here... But they are based out of NC

yeah there is holes... I will eventually be covering them back up with some rails at some point.

one of my plastic rails was already damaged, so it was time for it to go

Showed my WK some love today, I have had my spare in the rear for a long time now and it is damaging my upholstery so I decided to buy a tire carrier. I went with a TireGate which I am thinking it might need some fabrication to keep the spare tighter to the rear door for a better look.

Pics when I install it.

Also installed a new power steering pump and got my new JBA sway links.

Got the new JBA UCA's installed... After an alignment the WK feel great now. It's a love/hate with this Jeep, but right now I'm loving it!

So you like the JBA UCA's you feel that they changed your ride for the better?

It's really hard to say whether the UCA's greatly improved the ride quality, or if it was the new sway bar endlinks and alignment that were done at the same time. The Jeep drives better than it ever has since I did the lift 3 years ago...steering is tight, and it's soaking up bumps now.

I will say if nothing else, the peace of mind of upgrading to the JBA's is almost worth the price. I was going on 55k miles with my RRO lift and was a little nervous about the integrity of the stock ball joints.

I just placed my order for the same thing from Rock Auto. If you have any tips on install...(raising the Jeep or anything like that) let me know since you'll probably get to yours first.

will do man, yeah justforjeeps is so fast - its already shipping, and I bought it like 2 hours ago.

I will probably put a post up, because I dont think you have to jack the jeep up to change these bushings, but I could be wrong.
