Yeah that's a good method for removing the stock trackbar because of the tarerped holem you really can't fit a puller in there. You can also just pull down on the trackbar and it will pop out

I had to use the pitman puller on the tie rod/drag link to get those out of the way so I had room to drill out the holes

I just used a small pickle fork. Worked great

I hear ya about filling up the back. Just the basic camp stuff will fill a jeep. then if you want to bring kayaks, bikes or other toys with associated gear, or if you want a big cooler and camp chairs etc etc it gets tough to do it. It amazes me that I can camp comfortably for two weeks with just what I fit on my motorcycle, but family camping now takes an SUV and Trailer to bring it all along. I guess it is just human nature to fill up what ever space we have.

Headlight upgrade is awesome! I had no idea how weak the sealed beams were till I changed mine.

Got a decent set of take offs balanced and on the jeep. Will be my trail tires but wanted to test drive them first.

The only kind of weird spot is there is a positive lead that goes to the fuse box that has a unique connection. It is L shaped and connects to two posts. I was unable to salvage this part to reuse. So I had to improvise.
I'm surprised any aftermarket stuff wasn't available. Nothing from quadratec or 4wd.com?

Changed out my entire clutch over the weekend, including the flywheel and the hydraulic parts. Clutches and shifts much better now. Boy, that was quite a project, though, Actually, the part that gave me the most grief was the ridiculous transfer case shifter assembly. The next time I have a reason to get under there I am going to replace it with a Novak cable shifter.
