You can't (well, shouldn't) run Moabs on the WK without spacers. I can't remember if you need .25 or .5 min to clear the brake calipers.

Depends on the year, but 1/4" is the minimum when needed.

Tried installing one of the factory skids but while removing the plastic skid, on of the heads broke off the bolt and it feels like 2 other bolts will do the same.
Any tips on getting it out?

On a more pleasant note, I started making plans for a homemade belly guard to help protect some of the areas that jeep neglected to cover. I'm actually considering 1 large skid plate that covers evrything from the front suspention, out over the cats, and all the way to the back crossmember before the fuel tank. I think it would be a little stronger than the stock skids, and maybe help a little with gas milage too! Just in the design phase for now, but keep a lookout for a thread on it in the near future.
I had my TPS replaced today. When i got my tires last week the dude told me mine was coroded. Hee said $56 installed he just had to order it. I told him not to and that i could find one cheaper and id bring it to him.

Yeah i was wrong, called him up the next day and had him order it.

No I used gloss enamel on the caps and went with a abrasive pad and rubbed away the paint and only left the recessed black paint!!

Decided to go out wheeling with some buddies and put a little mud on the tires, had a chance to take a great pic of the WK by our swimming hole but thought I would share the pic of my buddies Cherokee getting some air! (btw, I'm 5'10" and the camera was eye level )

Old trick it to spray the tire down with tire shine or WD40 before going mudding so the mud cant stick to the tire...
