That's gonna be nice! I've considered painting my pipe to slow rust, but it's gonna have to wait. We don't get much moisture out here anyway. :P

Upstate NY will dump lbs of salt on the roads so rather than a rusty exhast painting it will protect it and keep it clean looking

Makes sense. Can't wait to see it.

Just ordered the OME HD lift from kolak. I can't wait to get it on!!! Now it's time to read up on the install process, I've never dealt with suspension before.

New (used) roof rack, still looking for feet for my Thule cross beams. I figured I'd put up a teaser.

What kind of roof rack is that? I'm in the market for one.

Everyday, something new you want to do. Disease of Jeeps.

It's a BVG All Road with extension. I got it on Craigslist for $100. From what I can tell through research is that it is discontinued or hard to find. But I like the low profile look and I might fab up a different mounting system to keep it lower to the vehicle. It is quite the beefy roof rack and I plan on adding "zombie lights" to the sides, reverse lights on the back and some spots up front.

AirLift airbag suspension helpers in the spring coils yesterday; block heater today. In both cases I stood and wrote the checks while others stepped up and did the work. Also, (somebody else) swapped out the oil at 2.4k.

Next up? Maybe Bilsteins to better control the airbags. Your thoughts!

Yeah I would go with some Bilsteins next. Then possibly some little cheap mods to let you like the jeep more. Things like
Cree reverse lights, tinted tails, paint the caps under the hood, LED light strips in the rear roof, back to black on your trim, if you are capable change all the dash lights to LEDs. Your Jeep would like that

Sent from the Pillar Of Autumn.

07 WK 3.7, Cree 7w reverse lights, tinted tails, kicker audio, K&N filter,ported TB, RC 1.25in spacers, Bilstein HDS, 4 prong plugs, aux lights, Bedliner'd grill, rear step and rear latch cover.
