No, my old deck lights were dying. Chrome was just a bonus.


I wish I could afford one of those fancy nav decks. $650 is the cheapest I've found.

The new navi disc was $100 on eBay. I bought the version AK disc. They just released the version AL disc but the updates weren't important to me on the AL vs AK disc. AL sells for between $150 and $200.

Thanks guys! They ride great haven't had time to really flex them out and see the improvement over OME besides the stiffer ride.. One tip to anyone installing these, wrap the upper shock bolt with electrical tape or else you will have rattling when hitting bumps.. I believe the bolt is an 1/8" smaller that causes it but other than they're great. Can't wait to get wheeling and flex the **** out of them..

I could NOT live with the noises! On my 94 ZJ the front shocks (Gabriel) would slip out of the rubber bushings and knock on the mounts! Grrr! Why couldn't the existing hardware be used?

The stock bolt is a Tad smaller than the shock, so increasing the bolt size wouldn't work with mount.. Putting a couple pieces of electrical tape around the center part of the bolt should do the trick. You can buy a top bushing kit from Fox to change the top heim joint to a standard bushing kit, either way a small modification will be needed for the top mount. I'll be extending my rear brakes lines and getting quick discos to utilize the extended length on the Fox shocks..

Overall I had a pretty productive weekend. I added a set of Infinity Reference 9632cf to my front doors, and added sound dampening to every door surface I could while I had the panels off. I wasn't sure how much of an improvement to expect (I have the BA factory system.) Needless to say, I am pretty happy. They sound cleaner overall, but I am most impressed with their low end extension. I don't normally listen to rap or dubstep, but ran through a few tracks just to test things out. Damn, it makes me wish I had done it sooner!

I also worked on adding light rings to my cup holders. I love the concept, but I need to work on color matching the LED's. It's far to green compared the rest of the lighting. I think I might try a white LED with a green filter. That may work a little better.

Agreed ^^


I didn't DO anything to my WK this weekend but I did buy a GoPro Hero3 so I can record my WK adventures!
The only pic I took was of it on my helmet (which is where it will get the most use)
