Going to swap out my 14/56 springs for my buddies 18/59 springs this weekend. Already have 2" pucks in the front and 1" in the rear, but once I threw on my winch and bumper I realized how soft the springs really were. Hopefully it turns out alright, I've read up on the swap on here so I think ill be ok to leave my pucks on for the time being until I've saved up for my true coil lift.. Any other issues I should be on the look out for ??? Thanks for help!

Nope, but I guess I could put lights on it if I drilled holes in it. I guess. Not that I want to. But I could.

Installed my Quadratec tow wiring harness and put my 5K sticker below the passenger side rear brake light.

Good for jaywalkers as well, if they're under a certain height/weight limit.

you know you can buy the Mopar touch up paints in any JK color already in aerosol cans (12 oz) for ,like , $1 an ounce on eBay /amazon ? I found a few cans of my px8 code black for 9 bucks , I think ? I mean, to each their own and you did pay the same if you got 26 ounces for $26 but I think just ordering it'd be less work than taking - what did you take , the little touch up pen? - it to some body shop and having them mix and can it for you...heck, even QuadraTec has the stuff .
maybe I missed something pertinent in you doing it this way....

Realized I hate the 3.8, was passing through some mountains yesterday on a road trip and the damn thing is retarded slow. Thinking about trading in for a 3.6 now.

What gears and trans do you have? Other than power are you happy with your jeep and the build you've done? Have you thought about a RIPP?

Surprised myself... 15 mpg on the highway with 40's in a 5,000+ lb rig is pretty awesome.
