QUOTE=Wilbready;15096318]Got the new shocks and struts and sway bay connectors installed! What a freaking difference! And I thought it couldn't get better!
Oh, and I found out that my spare is not only full size, but on the same rim as the rest of them! What a nice upgrade![/QUOTE]

The service center ordered them from their warehousing distributor. I believe they are Mopar OEM. Monroe made the shocks and struts.

Even if u cut them shorter it won't help. If you can't tighten them in then u would have to drill out the hole more. But as long as u are careful and use a towel u should be able to twist them without too much of a problem.

Ordered a new key for the misses, tired of her taking mine.
Also ordered inner fender well, figured might as well when we reinstall my bumper.

I started gathering components for my sub install.

Alpine Mrx-50
Alpine Raux Knob
DB Link PK4Z 4 Gauge Amp Kit

Also this may be the last thing I post since my woman is going to kill me.

Trading my badly matched BFG Mud Terrain tires on 17" rubicon wheels for a set of 32" Duratracs that go on an 18" rim. I'm thinking Sahara rims, plenty of results on the search, I'm excited.

I'm so stuck on wether to pick up and SL this summer or go the interior upgrade route and get set up with a new deck and sweet system. Either way is $$ but seeing as I do not wheel that often, I'm leaning towards the interior more, how do you like the alpine r's? I'm thinking a couple JL W3's?
