The lines coming out of the box do so via holes with very tightly packed rubber grommets on them, along with electrical tape around the holes. The box will supply 5 switches (all of which require power) and relay them to any device or light on the jeep.
Pictures would be nice.

I just installed the HD springs a few days ago and I am enjoying the ride. I was a little worried when I read people saying it was harsh but I don't really mind it. I really like how much less body roll there is on turns.

Here's some pics and info guys,

Black front = negative battery lead
Red rear = fused positive battery lead
Yellow left = 5 output terminals
5 red from 6 conductor cord = switch power terminals
5 black (multicolor labeled) from 6 conductor cord = switch input terminals
Separate white = 5 switch ground terminals

Anybody know if rugged ridge ever made uncoated silver wheel spacers? I found a set on craigslist that claim to be rugged ridge, but their website only shows black coated ones

Figured out that my rear passenger side outer axle bearing is what failed a few nights ago, a new one will be here tomorrow morning but even at my discounted dealer price I still had to pay just over $200 for the part.

On the up side, the ole beast diddle it into a few shots from stunt practice Saturday! She sure does look good hauling our toys around

Well I'm picking them up Wednesday morning but I'm not sure when the install will be. The only reason I'm doing this is because of you! You had the idea to just mount them to the existing mid pipe. I had looked into doing this awhile ago but didn't see any concrete plans. After you mentioned your preliminary plans to just use the existing mid pipe, I saw that as long as you have the srt8 gasket, they should mount up just fine after massaging the transmission housing and dip stick slightly. Not really positive of what to do with the EGR but I'll line up the stock gasket to the srt8 header and see what needs to be notched.

Luckily I have new stock manifolds, gaskets, and bolts sitting in my basement. I should be able to unload them for what I paid since I got a great deal on them as well.

Install won't be for a little bit so feel free to beat me to it so I can follow your expert advice like always!

Just fixed the oil sender on mine, I love this car. Change the oil and rotate the tires...she just keeps running.

I just picked up some pioneer 6.5's for the rear and infinity refernce 3.5" for the dash. The infinity pair was $20 with free shipping, infinity is selling a load of refurbished on ebay with free shipping...should be a cheap/easy upgrade.

Bottom of the line, no navi, no boston acoustics.

Trying to decide what to put in the front doors now. (replace the 6x9's or go with 6.5 and hook up the old sub/amp)

Installed the Secure Console cover from Steel Armadillo, and already tested it out, temporarily locking up an item that needs locking up. Perfectly sized!

I can tell you that the convenience upgrade of the Secure Console versus a separate case and padlock makes a big difference--it's right there and ready. Overall security is enhanced because I no longer have a case in back that shouts "break in and steal me" even when it's empty.
