This is how my sway bar is now with the OME.you can see that it is at 0 degrees when it should have been 10 degrees up from orizontal,but this will be fixed soon with the jks discos




Also here are the latest photos of the fixed rear rubber mud flaps and the jeep with the OME











HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

First let's start with the RB3 navi:the installation was very-very easy,you just unplug the old cd player and plug the new navi.the navi antenna had to go on top of the dash but that is quite easy also



i had some minor problems though...i have under my rear seat an amp



allthough there was no problem with the previous cd-player, in the RB3 when i installed it i couldn't hear the front speakers even with the fader all the way in the front.this was fixed(from my electrician somehow!!) but now i can hear from time to time some statics coming from the rear speakers,even when the volume is completely shut!?!what i'm thinking is that either the amp needs someting to adjust according to the RB3 or the 0n-off(volume) switch of the RB3 is malfunctionong.any ideas are much appreciated!!

Now let us go on to the JKS front adjustable track bar:the installation was much easier than i expected to be!!first you take the old one out.if you take first the bolt that is on the axle and then the one on the frame you must be carefull cause the track bar will come down with great force and you'll get hurt!after that you move the jeep a little front-back and the steering wheel left-right and you measure your axle to be in the centre so you can go on and install the new track bar.my lift is almost 2.5'' and you can see the threads i have in my JKS so that the axle is in the centre.my JKS is the OGS126 which is for 1-3.5'' of lift.




you can see that now the track bar is parallel to the drag link as is supposed to be.

And for last here are the JKS quicker discos for 2.5-4'' of lift and the skid row lower control arms skids



you have to open up a little bit the hole in the bottom for the new pin to pass through.



here you rest your JKS when the are discoed!



the skids look and fit great and probably will protect me great...

finally you can see that now the sway bar is at 10 degrees from orizontal (as per JKS instructions) when before it was at almost 0 degrees

before



after

Just a quick question, What do you use to keep your jeep so clean inside and out? Any particular type of Polish or wax?

Very nice Jeep!

Go take your jeep offroad instead of making it look pretty by putting skid plates and all that fancy **** on it. If you want to spend money on a jeep by me a new one
