Spent my paycheck on 2" BDS coils and 1" M.O.R.E. Body lift.. sold my tires, put some in the tank (not a surprise, this is every 3 days), took off the extended stock flares that go past the tire well? I think that's what it's called, it looked bad so I took it off. Time to start looking on write-ups on how to take off a BB, install coil springs and a 1" body lift with absolutely no mechanical/technical experience whatsoever.. anyone have advice for me?

Go to a manufactures website and read the PDF file of their installation instructions. All should be relatively the same. The BDS instructions should work just fine.

Sucks Dude! Important part is you're not totalled.

That one water pump hose can get so irritating. Having a distributer makes it even more of a pain.

Where'd you get that decal? I want to buy enough to put everyone that I knows vehicles.

OT: put my soft top and doors back on for the winter. Still waiting to buy brackets for my axle swap due to the wife losing her job. Boo. Hoping I can get it done before the first freeze of the winter. Hate working on it on the cold.

Make sure you tell your insurance agent that she said that to you. Its an admission of guilt. Dumb *****. Glad your okay though!


In other words, plasti-dipped my rims today.

Before:



After:




One of the front tires being done off the Jeep (didn't want to get any overspray on the rotors.



Mismatched spare tire:



Amazing what a small change in color can do to change the entire look/appearance of the Jeep. Looks sooo much nicer now.
