I've got the same one. I've had it about 4 months now in the Minnesota winter. The washers for the bolts rust quickly.

Got my CoverKing seat covers and installed them.


Then did this.


Only broke 2 rotted out exhaust flange bolts on the Y pipe, which I fixed yesterday afternoon when I got back home. That's what's left of the M8 flange bolts

I won a raffle at my local 4 wheel parts store for a Magnaflow exhaust system and picked it up and installed it. Sounds great and the matte black dual exhuast looks really nice. Not obnoxious, but much better tone and feels like it has a little more pep to it. Only thing better than Jeep Parts are FREE Jeep parts! It's something I wouldn't have bought until pretty far down the road, but I'm glad to have gotten it. Install was easy except for getting the lip of the muffler hangar out through that rubber eye it hangs on. I'm convinced that no matter how much you grease it and maneuver your channel locks it just doesn't come out until you have cussed at it a sufficient number of times.

Saw these on Amazon, I don't have them but they seem like they would work good, maybe a local shop or the ZONE would have them to barrow Lisle 38350 Exhaust Removal Pliers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012S9A5U..._o074yb1PM72NT

Just got my jeep back out of the shop for a full G2 CORE44 Rear axle assembly with 5.13's, placard cold shafts, Auburn ETCED, and G2 front 5.13 gear and pinion set.
Had to update my programmer for the darn jeep to change gears at the end!

Now just have to play with the gear changing time and idle rpms. MPG Already went from 16 to 17.4. Cant wait to see what a full tank drive is at!

UPDATE: The Wolo Big Boy Max 619 air horn sucks! After a couple uses it only squeaks like a dog toy that's been chewed to death.

I replaced it with a Stebel Nautilus Compact Truck Horn.

Filling out your profile will help us help you or at least tell us if you have a JK or a JKU.

A 2.5" Teraflex spring lift is a good one. The differences are, one has shock extensions where you can reuse your factory shocks, one has shocks with the kit and one is a kit that needs shocks but you supply your own. Then the same set of products is repeated for the 4 door, so in effect, 6 options for the spring lift.

So it depends on what your budget is and if you want shocks tuned for highway driving or off road use.

I went with the Teraflex Part# 1351002 kit (I have a 2 Dr). It' required me to supply the shocks and I went with Bilstein 5100's. They are a bit stiffer than the factory shocks for highway use but really nice off road.

If you have a 2 Dr and want to reuse the factory shocks, use kit# 1352002 and if you want the kit and their shocks, it's Part# 1251002.

PM Kolak, he is a Teraflex dealer and usually has very good pricing.

The much more expensive kits have control arms, etc, which you most likely won't need for what you indicated your use will be.

Finally changed the transmission filter today, had the parts since last summer. It wasn't to difficult, at least not as much as I thought it would be.
