This weekend I finished unlifting my jeep ( replaced the 2 1/2" spacer on top of the v-8 zj springs with a 1" spacer, and put back the stock rear with a 2" spacer in place of the old fronts), replaced the 1" t-case drop with 1/4" spacers, drilled out 3 broken rear upper shock bolts, installed poly bushings in the rear LCA's, track bar, and sway bar, and put on a set of Chapparell AP 32x11.50's on 15x8 white wagon wheels with (I think) about 3.75" BS ( they stick out past the flare about 2 1/2"). Need to take it for a drive later, test it out.

Finally took pictures. I leveled it out (close) with 2" coil spring spacers, added big boy brackets, and 1" lift to the drivers seat. Also repositioned the drivers window crank so my knee doesn't hit it when the doors are on.

Stock when I picked it up at the dealership in August.


After adding 2" spacers in the front to level it out, I suppose the weight of the bumper and winch were weighting it down.

The new big boy seat brackets, and 1" seat risers (went up 1" and back 4") much more compfy now.




Head rest hits roll bar when tumbling, have to move the seat forward to do it now.


And my buddy's shop in Dallas GA.

The 32x11.50s don't rub on stock ravines, at stock height?

Read a trouble code of 42 from my ECU.
The list in the FAQ says this code won't cause the MIL to light on its own, but it's the only code being reported.

Edit: it appears the list in the FAQ is useless for an '03. The code is actually P0442, and has nothing to do with the code 42 listed there. I have an evap/emissions system leak.
