Out of that entire picture of goodies, I was only able to put on a fraction today. The OME kit went on easy enough, looks pretty good although I'm slightly disappointed the front is 1/2 inch or so higher than the rear. Figure I'd let it settle, and I've still got some weight to put on the front end (4xGuard matrix and front guard).

The roof rack rails that I received are wrong. Right part number on the box, but aren't long enough to fit onto my roof bars. Thinking they belong to a liberty or something. Was miffed about that considering Amazon also screwed up my rain deflectors. (Although the weathertech ones I replaced them with went on easily enough) Rear tail light guards were also defective, passenger side guard wouldn't thread the screw, it would slide in and out. No other screw would fit. Considered using JB Weld but I'm just going to tough it out and exchange it and wait the week or 2 it takes to get back. New roof rack rails come in tomorrow. Will be putting the rack up as well as the matrix, front guard and hypertech.

No beer or friends involved today. Just lots of swearing.


My short-term memory is not as sharp as it used to be.

On a side note, don't plan on getting a front drive shaft from Chrysler, they have over 700 on back order!
It was the same deal a year ago. I just randomly got lucky and they said they are sending one,

Installed my SteelArmadillo belly skid today. This skid covers a lot more area than the 4xGuard and is much more stout. The single piece design makes it much easier of an install as well..
Shot of clearance for mids..


This was my main concern and why I switched, when I switched to true dual exhaust the drivers mid pipe rubbed against the lip where the 4xGuard skid bolts together.


And a shot for size comparison..

I have had these tires for 2+ years now and have no complaints. I really like them. You won't go wrong if you buy these tires.

I drove mine, and lamented the fact that I have nowhere to work on it. Need to get my stereo installed ASAP. Hate spending all that money on new speakers and head unit and having it sit in a box in my office.

So basically you want to let that go for $100, is what you're saying?!

Thanks guys.

I gave her permission to get in it and she tried to get fancy and dumped it right where I was standing thus making a sweet HEMI fly by.
