Put on my 2" BB yesterday and I love it. My shocks were completely useless before so now with a much improved ride, I also get ~2" higher!

Got some new BFG AT installed on the jeep, took it offroading, washed it off because i need to get an aligment done on the front to correct a very small pull. I know i couldhave done it myself but i dont have my tools at school and i dont really have an area to work on. Only reaon i washed it was i didnt want to get *****ed at for all the mud under it, some shops will charge you more if they can no access the area very well. After the alignment mabe i will explore the back areas of the town nextdoor which has trials roaming through it.

I put the hardtop on for winter as well as cleaned the interior and put the carpet back in. I also took out my Tuffy storage box and Mountaineer rack and put the back seat back in. I still need to change all the fluids and such as well as put in a new TPS and inspect a problem with the idle air control motor or whatever is throwing code 2.5 (25) with a check engine light. The fluids and other maint. is for another day though. By the way it was 65 here today in VA which is very rare!!

Got a flat tire and had to put on the spare. Luckily I decided to go with same size spare. The kicker is I just put those darn tires on less then a week ago and I caught a nail. Oh well it will be back to normal tomorrow. Also my FSM arrived today I like that a lot.

Greased, changed oil, figured out that the exhaust rattle I've been hearing is coming from INSIDE the muffler, ordered cat back exhaust.

Installed new shocks and steering stabilizer from pro comp. Hope the shocks are worth it. Took four hours, pro comp was missing many parts from order. Wrote a nasty letter though so I feel better.

Hopefully they aren't ES-3000's, if so prepare your kidneys for a beating... They're guaged for a much heavier truck.

It is better to keep one's mouth shut and be thought a fool.... than to open it and remove all doubt.

I have ES-3000's on my TJ and at first I didn't like them, but now they feel allright. I don't know what made them feel that hard in the first time, if they softened a little or if I just got used to it... Now I like them. I probably would have choosed something else but I got them for cheap and I did not want to spend alot.
