I did nothing to my WK. I rolled down the windows and sunroof, rested my arm on the door side, put on my baseball cap, turned up Billy Currington and Dierks Bentley a little - while I drove for 30 miles.


Tobes!!! Where have ya been buddy... I missed ya. I missed your sarcastic humor and 1980's references.

AJ!!!! whats up man?!?! I've been on my honeymoon for the last week or so. I was down in the caribean (spelling?). Definetly some awesome wheeling to be had on some of the islands.

Now back to the future (80's reference for today) I'm at work and thinking about ordering a trailer hitch for the WK. I'll need it for the snow this winter.

When is that trip in November where jager is coming to URE?

Gave her a nice bath today. Since I gave it a good wax last time I washed her, I went with Meguires Ultimate Quick Detailer. I was def impressed, the stuff worked really well. I tried using Back to Black, and was not impressed. I think next time I'd rather just pull the molding off and paint it. Anywho... on to the pics!

It really is pretty easy to do, you should go for it bro! It's just a little time consuming waiting between coats, but it's simple and well worth it.

If you're going to be riding around for more than a couple weeks without new tires I would suggest getting an alignment. I really disliked driving mine between lift and alignment. Was a really jumpy jerky ride going over even little bumps. I'm usually a one handed driver but I was 2 handing it everywhere >40 mph.

Yea you definitely have to align it after lifting it, pushing the control arm down really screws up the caster/camber and toe
