Debating what lift to get for my LJ - exchanged a brief email with Gerald about the full Savvy/ Currie 4 inch lift (8 arms, track bars, anti-rock, bumpstops). I want everything in aluminum to reduce weight since it's a DD and Iowa salts the roads like crazy. Thought I was dead set on it, then started looking at the Clayton 4 inch long arm kits... Anyone have any input one way or the other?

On topic - my LJ decal and side oriented american flag decals arrived from pixeldecals.

Just hit a patch of black ice and hit a concrete barrier at about 20 mph... Not a scratch on the jeep. (:

Didnt you just watch the savvy/Currie rig win the EMC for the third year running? Its not even a contest for them anymore. I'm guessing it should be pretty good.

Friday night mad dash catch up:
Modified the USB charger I installed a few weeks ago to allow for fast charge. Forgot that you need to short D+ and D- together.

Attempted to install an auto dimming, temperature readout rear view mirror. Turns out I do not have the correct connector for the Jeep end, or sufficient pins for the mirror end. Complete fail.

Read up on how to properly adjust the parking brake, after adjusting it incorrectly a while back (tightening the nut on the cable = no no). Used a screwdriver to turn the adjuster star thingy, and realized that I was turning it the wrong way after it fell into the drum. Nice. Removed tire, caliper, rotor, reinstalled adjuster, put everything back and turned it in the opposite direction. Works much better that way.

Completed the install of the tuffy box thing. The one that takes place of the rear seat. I think I like it, but I'm not sure yet.

Well, off to the mountains for the weekend. There is a hiking trail calling my name. Or perhaps I will go skiing. Or both.

I didn't watch that... I'm out of the loop. Is this something I can find on Youtube? Also, thank you for pointing that out. I will probably go with Savvy/Currie for simplicity and to match my Currectlync!

How long after you ordered your metalcloaks did you get them? Ordered mine a week ago. Can't wait for them to arrive.

Rofl, yeh, because that rig is running short arms? :idk:

PS, the Clayton arms are equipped with Currie Johnny Joints if memory serves.

Around 3 weeks, I'm half way across the country from them though. It wouldn't hurt to call and ask about your order, they have great customer service.

No its not, but that's not the point. The Currie/savvy kit is the most complete and well balanced "kit" you can buy in my opinion. And when part builders race, they typically transfer that knowledge into their parts. If he can swing the coin for the kit, a small amount of research should pretty much make it a no brainer.
