Too bad you didn't give it a chance, the songs on the second video get good after about 30 seconds. There is even some rock mixed in there.
I didn't want it all just to be heavy metal, that's way too overdone

I installed a basic gutter mount roof rack (Thule) to the hardtop so I can carry the 12' Port-a-Bote (A folding 12' boat that looks like a long surfboard when folded flat). I double checked my Motorhome wiring to the TJ's taillights and along with double checking my tow bar. All is right with the world and am ready to hook it up to the Pusher Diesel motorhome and hit the road.

DONE:

Installed RC 2.5" Lift plus a JKS 1.25" Body lift!

it's a beautiful ride so far, much smoother then stock


i didnt install my OME relocation track bar bracket. Doesnt seem like i need it ? what do you think? ( i'll be buying 33x12.50's ) in the future.


( also having problems getting the transfer case linkage drop bracket installed correctly, seems like the linkage is hitting the black bracket )

before:

.




after!:






For those that have the body lift installed, how did you solve the shifter boot problem? i can shift into all gears, but the shifter boot is binding up making it tough to shift.

I've seen where a few guys on here swapped that rubber boot for a leather one to take care of that situation.

Hooked a hose to the tailpipe and stuck the hose in a hole in the ground to make a few gophers go nighty-night.

They're making my lawn look like a jeep course.

Great idea! I'd like to know how well it worked. Those f ers can really mess up a yard. Btw, are you the same BoatCop from the HB forums?
