I just got back from a day trip for some back woods trails and to do some shootin' in BFE. It was a great day to be alive and drive a TJ!

Plus I even passed a black Illinois YJ on the way there with a JF sticker.

What about the JK shocks?? How much longer are they compared to stock TJ shocks?

I hate my shocks right now and there are 4 JK shocks in my buddy's garage with only 500 miles on them!! [/QUOTE]


JK shocks are about an 1/8th of an inch shorter than 4" lift TJ shocks

Rotated the tires including the spare (that spool is hard on tires) and finally installed my new rear shocks. Swapped the fronts months ago.

I installed my front coil spacers to level things out since my winch dropped the front down. then I installed a Pair of blue/clear LED lights to the winch plate for those times I run the jeep on fire calls,, see link below for pics of the lights and switch install,,,

ripped out my entire stereo system and wiring. Kept the 10" sub and 2 amps out, put in a new more powerful amp for the components rewired everything and put in a new deck with mp3 capabilities that uses CDs, usb drive, or SD cards for music. Also has he aux out. Best part is I already had the wiring and got the deck 50% off so he whole thing with tax cost me $90 to do (found the new amp in my girlfriends closet, it was in her old car but she bough a jeep). Now to sell my sub and old amps

New pads and rotors up front. Performance Friction brake pads. Noticeable improvement over the stock pads which still had plenty of life on them. Worth every penny.

On a side note this is the first time I've ever done any maintenance on my own. Used the write up from 4x4xplor.com. Super easy.
