So the Jeep finally fits in the garage! Unfortunately it only got to go in for a few minutes as I had to go to work immediately.

Wouldn't have happened without Storm_JK. I was going to try the install myself...glad he stepped in and offered his help. I would have been in a world of hurt if I tried to tackle this job with the lack of knowledge and tools. Rather than him helping me, he pretty much did everything while I stood there with wrenches and flashlights...but I think I've learned a couple things now.

Should have some before/after pics in the next day or two...then a picture with the new stinger bumper, right? Haha.

And I'll probably have to wait a few more weeks and pay even more COD to get it.. They responded WRT the trackbar. Supposedly it's separated during shipment and will arrive today. That seems strange.
The last time I had something shipped to Canada by FEDX we got hosed with brokerage fees and taxes. The best is to have the parcel delivered to a border depot and go over to the US and pick it up yourself. Northridge 4x4 is about the only one that can bypass the border charges.

Gotta love the Jeep community! Way to go, Storm_JK! :high five:
Glad to hear there is a happy ending to your plight. Hope to see pics, soon.
