I agree with these guys ^^^ $2700 is a SCAM!

Please help!
Wowzers! Def get a second opinion. Shop around a little.

Replaced my lift gate struts with strongarm ones. Great improvment over a pair of vise grips holding it up.

After installing my suspension, tires/wheels, Stillen brakes, and doing both the pinch weld and expanded grill mod this past weekend, I proceeded to just order the Saguaro 3/4" D Ring Shackle kit, and the 4xGuard front guard. I cant believe how awesome the jeep is looking, this Jeep thing is addicting. And to top it off, I had the jeep in for alignment and another round of tire balancing and low and behold, it drives great now, no steering shake, just a nice ride. Hope these parts come quick, I cant wait to put them on!

I can't find that invoice for some reason. I thought I paid bout 350 but I could be wrong. That damn bezel was around hundred bucks.

Scratch tickets. Massachusetts probably has the best lottery in the country! After federal and state tax, I took home $14,000, not bad.

Oh they are exclusive to MA? Darn. And they are just called scratch tickets? I thought they would have a specific name.

And 14k, I would be pretty happy

No not just MA, other states should have lottery scratch tickets. What state do you live in?

Well Chicago got about 8" of snow tonight and I finally got a chance to test out the s4xc shackle mounts and shackles. I was driving down the street and saw this big astro van spin out, do a 360, and go off the side of the road, just missing a big tree! it was a 16 year old kid and he looked pretty scared haha. needless to say I immediately pulled over, got out the tow strap and pulled him back on the road with minimal effort. Very pleased with the WK and those shackles.

haha my previous car was a crappy little Ford Taurus and I spun out a few winters ago very similar to the way he did. Some random dude stopped and pulled me out with his pickup truck. I told myself when I got the WK that I'd help the first person I saw in need
