My youngest son and I rode up to Gilmer from Houston and wheeled all afternoon.

What did I do today?

Fixed the door latch on my drivers side door. When I pulled the handle it acted like it was locked. After removing the door panel I found that the roll pin in the door latch had slid up and was allowing the handle to move without fully moving the latching rod. I love working on Jeeps... they are so simple without all the extra covers, electronics and s*** that makes life difficult! It all took me about 15 mins

F'ed up my tailpipe on my front yard - had to test the Jeep somewhere off road. That there's a monster hill Well maybe not but because it's a $50 fix it was funny as hell. Had some fun at least

do it.. you will not regret it.. I have the 4.5 topped with 2" coil spacers for my 35's.. great look better ride. if you are not runing 35"s forget the 2" spacers.. 33's are perfect for stuffing into those wheel wells.
good luck

moved the front trackbar mounting hole over a 3/4" and then centered the steering wheel.. this seems to have fixed my DW.

also added a third mounting bolt to my rear trackbar riser.. this seems to have eliminated a little clicky/squeaky from the rear.

felt kind of productive. woot.

gonna get an oil change in the morning and go wheeling with a group for the first time tomorrow! i'll get pictures.

How long did it take to get yours? I ordered one earlier this week and the order status hasn't changed yet. I"m not in a rush but I am curious.

well they are in stock, but, my gf ordered it last week before my b-day so i would have it on fri. she paid for 2 day shipping and i waited...........................and waited, when it didnt show on mon i called and it had not been shipped. they rushed it out and i had it on fri. they ship raw steel so i primed and painted it, removed winch and old winch plate and it all bolted right on. quality is nice, welds look great. overall very good product. i still want there windshield sliders. so i will give them a call in a few weeks for them. good luck with yours.
