Haha well me and my dad split the cost of my WK. We each paid 5500 last summer, and the deal was I pay for all service and gas and I've upheld. So now that my sister is getting her license, and my dad doesn't like the idea of driving a jeep with over 100k miles, I'll be getting his and he'll be getting something else.

Hit 70,000 miles as I pulled into the shop. Got a front wheel bearing replaced. Also upgraded to a high performance bearing!

Much better! I know you will feel a difference the first time you motor down the highway, too!

Yeah it should fit. QT1 and QT2 share the same diff I believe.

That's awesome! Are you going to do a Superlift with the Hemi then? Or put your Daystar on it?

Just got the jeep back from the shop today, it got a new front differential. Now I need an alignment and she will be running much better since one of my buddies did some things he shouldn't have driving it.

I'm so excited to do the OME lift. I just need the springs as I already have the shocks installed with my RC lift(long story). I plan on getting the RRO UCAs, Adjustable track bar and probably MLLs in the rear. Then eventually when I am out of college and have a real job a Superlift.

Just my personal opinion but don't go with the MLL's if your doing the ome get yourself some bilsteins I have MLL's right now And they annoy the hell outta me cuz they squeak like crazy so I'll be swapping them out soon.

Yes, I got it off eBay for about $15. It's very tedious. I used a hair dryer to wrap it around the corners and edges. Take the pieces apart and clean it up with rubbing alcohol first.
