Finally got her back, new front driveshaft CV, new drivers side CV axle, drivers side hub assembly, new rear driveshaft, new pinion and carrier bearings in rear axle, new diff fluid.

Drives great, especially with the weight reduction from my wallet!

For those who dont have one but wish they did - Dorman #917 327 about $20 on Amazon, Ebay, or many other places.
Still need to guess the ATF temp tho for accurate level check.

We got ready to go to the Baylor Women's BB game, hit the starter and click, click, click. It gave me a warning yesterday when I left work, but I had slept since then. So, off to the parts store for a replacement battery... At least I didn't have to disassemble half the car to replace it like on my GF's car.

2006 Grand Cherokee Overland, bone stock...for now.

Got a quote for installing the Superlift. Min $500, but no more than $600. Hows that sound? I had no idea what to expect for a price but that doesn't seem too high.

Probably takes a well qualified mechanic 7-10 hours to install it, I'd say that's not a bad price.

Exactly, I have been thinking of cutting my bottom bumper corners and fabbing up some sort of metal frame along the corner behind the bumper but i haven't looked too much into it. It would need to look professional and not too busy

Just make sure they know what they are getting into! If they have never done one before (especially a 4wd) they might get it finished after 2 days of work and charge you twice as much as the original quote.

Yeah deffinetly. It won't be until mid summer at the earliest so I am going to go back and talk with them. I don't know if any 3.7's have the SL yet? Well see how it goes! But the owner of the shop has a 6 inch kit on his F350 I believe it is, so if they did that then they should be alright.
