Climbed under the jeep to figure out the problem with my front locker not locking up. Turns out the pump went bad, looked like it got water in it. Dealership claims Rubicons didn't come with lockers til the JKs and that my '05 air lockers had to be aftermarket. Anyone know where to get one or even better yet, have one laying around?

Swapped the rear 4" Fabtech springs and shocks for 2" BDS springs and Bilstein 5100's. Makes a big difference having the rear Bilsteins vs just the fronts I have had in for a month.

You should ask them why there's a 10th anniversary Rubicon!

What will really piss you off is that it takes all of maybe 15 min a side. I did the same thing a while back when I replaced everything with Black Magic.

Plasti dip'd huh? I'd like to see that, sounds interesting.

So, I picked up some sheet metal screws, mounted the fuse holder


and cut the amp power wire to install. Only problem is, there's no way the 4 gauge wire will fit into the fuse holder inputs.

So, I had to put in a call to Kicker about it.

I compared the inputs on the fuse holder to the distribution block, and you can clearly see the input on the fuse holder is smaller then that of the distribution block.


Oh well...eventually I'll finish this.
