I replaced all of my strut with some I bought from Kolak. They were a great price and have a lifetime warranty!

Yep that's what sold me! Otherwise I would have just bought them from my local auto parts store. Now if and when they wear out I can send them back for a new set

I needed some new rubber, so I thought I would try the Falken Rocky Mountain's. So far so good, I like them.

Looks good. What size tires? And looks like you have a lift? I need new tires and I'm searching around the board to try and figure out what I want to do.

They are 245/70/17 and 650 installed at Discount Tire. The lift is the 2.25" from Rocky Road. These tires have nothing but great reviews and were the best bang for your buck IMO.

Final word from the shop, front driveshaft was toast, the drivers left cv axle and hub assembly are being replaced also.

On a side note, don't plan on getting a front drive shaft from Chrysler, they have over 700 on back order!

I will be going that route eventually so I will have one stronger and more reliable that the stock one. For now I wanted a trail spare so I bought a used one off ebay for cheap.

Anyone out there have any hood louvers? Any pics? I like the look on ZJ's and JK's.

I installed a new shorty antenna today that I bought from Pepboys for 8 bucks. My old one cracked off at the plastic base when I decided to take her through an automatic car wash in 5 degree weather.
