The urges are overwhelming...

This will be my first post on this forum. Had my 08' WK 5.7l limited for about a year now, just stock pavement pounder. I've been reading and planning and saving $$$ for a while now. The build itch became overwhelming the other day when...

Picked up some JK wheels yesterday from a guy off of craigslist for, get this, free. Guess he tried to sell them a while back and it was a no go so his wife told him to get rid of them, awesome score. They have the Wrangler SRA's on them still which have enough meat left on them to get to the tire shop next week. Painted them Duplicolor graphite today, looks so sweet. debating on clear coating them. Putting on a custom fab'd rough country style 2" lift this weekend with +2 Monroes in the rear.

Soon to come- Cooper Discoverer II's (265/70-17), K&N intake, cut out the stock muffler any weld in a Dynomax VT, DS tuner.

Sounds good. Looks like your going to be on an empty wallet like the rest of us.

I just bought some LEDs yesterday. I was thinking zip ties would be the only way to go. Did you get battery powered ones?

Nah I have a power inverter in the back and the lights just ran into the rear hatch. it's held up so far and it's been raining a lot so I seem to be good to go for a while still. Waiting for this weekend to drive around. My GF says its going to embarrass her so even that's a reason to keep them on.

It's been said that the ground on the newer TB's without the throttle cable is poor so you just get a cable/wire and wire up a ground cable to the throttle body.

Hoped on the ferry over to Vancouver to pick up some JK Moab wheels. The spare is brand new, and the other 4 are 30% ish. Paid 200 for the 5! However I'm going to need to find some TPMS valve stems. :/
