Well tired of breaking fiberglass whips, done replaced about 6 or so. So now I had to go to the hideous 102" whip. On the good side with a 10" extension SWR's sitting on 1.2

Wilson Proflex. Look it up. It's 3' long, and can literally bend 180° without bending.

Bought her an 8.8 with brackets for $260. Time to get it cleaned up and prepped. Need to order the flange adapter, and some ZJ e-brake cables next...

Replaced both front calipers, hopefully my front left brake doesn't stick anymore.
