I have them in mine too. They just fit better if you nip the edge on one of the tabs so it matches the 9145a or whatever the fog is supposed to be.

Yeah man, lovin the shocks. Nice ride and I got that extra little lift out of them. I was just towing a trailer today and my buddy commented on the fact that the rear barely dropped with the weight of the trailer. (dump trailer with a 7' x 10' shed on it) So I'd say they work pretty well.

I guess your not gonna want my Reflex shocks huh? lol

Oh, and there's a rubber sleeve on the load-levelers to keep the coil from rubbing the shock body when compressed. The sleeve slid down on the shock and every time the shock compressed it would rub and sqeek. Very annoying. Easy fix though.

Budasac,
What rear shocks are you runnng? Decent shocks seem to be hard to find for the WK with any sort of a lift. Are yours load-leveling (with a coil on each shock)?

Edit***
So, I decided to take a look at your build thread AFTER I posted this.
duh

I was going to install my hitch but after further inspection of the rear bumper decided I didn't want to mess around with taking it off all night, so instead I gave her a bath, didn't get around to waxing, but also cleaned my starter connection good. May be in my head but I think it even starts up a little faster like its getting ample juice. It always sounded like it was kinda struggling to me before. (Brand new battery)

New rotors and pads all round, new windshield installed (old one was badly sandblasted from road salt and gravel)

What rotors and pads did you use? My brake pads are fine, and the rotors appear fine too, but they are squealing like a toddler! I want to get some that will not rust, and will not squeal, period.

BAH101, how much did the windshield run? I am in need of one due to excessive pitting.

Changed front & rear differential lubricant, Mobil-1 75W-140. Had 35K miles on old stuff. Was still good, but now it's ready for the Winter in Michigan.

Transfer case (MOPAR NV245 transfer case fluid) and engine lube oil (5W-20 full synthetic) are next weekend's project.

Installed the factory skids, including the gas tank skid. Did it solo, would not recommend it. Took about 2.5 hours give or take. As soon as the belly skid comes in, will be ready to hit the trails.

Yup, pretty much everything is more expensive north of the border, even stuff made here and sold in the USA.
