Coming from a guy who has swapped out all of my re arms, stay away from re. Spend the little extra and get the metal cloak lift. It will save you cash in the long run. Plus the dual rate springs ride a lot nicer.

Ended up sliding off the highway b/c a ******* trucker cut me off. girlfriend didn't take a pic of the 3' snow bank I went through first, that little pole in front of the jeep stopped me. Lol. Embarrassing thing is I had to pull it out with our lincoln aviator. Only damage is it took out both my lights mounted on the winch fair lead and a bent tie rod. Snow bank was part snow and part solid ice chunks

Installed new psc steering pump, old one was sounding bad. New tensioner and new free wheel as well since they too were squeaking

New mirrors to replace the one I snapped off on the trail. (Got two for $50 instead of just one for $35)

I got mine from Auto Zone

It is a BWD Throttle Position Sensor

It had NASCAR logos and endorsement on it and was made in China

6 months thus far

Started the day getting a new muffler. Managed to split the seams on Monday when it was -11 outside. Must have flooded it a little and them popped the muffler. Left the muffler shop and got parts to do the rear brakes. Grabbed shoes and drums and a hardware kit. Later discovered I needed the adjuster kits as well. I'll never understand why people cut those. They are not that hard to install. Also discovered a leaking wheel cylinder so I decided to replace both of those as well. Should have left well enough alone as I twisted the break line off on the one that was not leaking and had to make another trip to pick up a piece of break line. Anyway, finally finished and breaking much better that when I bought it last Friday.

Replaced squealing tensioner and idler pulleys. Cold weather had them voicing their opinions after 136k miles and I didn't want to hear it. Lol
