Replaced the leaking Bilstein steering stabilizer (3 months old) with this Fox 2.0.

Nice upgrade, Beefier and a quality feel and look vs the Bilstein. Definite improvement in driving sensation.

Had new KO2s installed on the AEV wheels.

Now I gotta figure out the fender rubbing issue on the trails. Leaning towards the metcalcloak fenders. I prefer not lifting her.

A couple days ago but I replaced my bent and squeaky stock rear axle shafts with a pair of G2 Chromoly axle shafts. Sanity restored with no more *squeak, squek, squeak* going down the road.

Couple days ago I did my water pump, spark plugs, oil change, and VVT actuators. Had to order drivers side valve cover gasket after I started it up sounds awesome but then dumped oil all over the street in front of the house. Oh, also rear diff oil and painted the cover. Discovered some busted spider gears in the process.

Replaced the valve cover gasket before work this morning. After it all went back to together, I thought... why don’t the VVT actuators have a gasket? They have a seal that I probably threw away which isn’t helping my leak at all I’m sure... 🤦‍♂️

Just be sure you have a tire plug kit and air compressor handy, or AAA on speed dial.
It DOES look sharp. If you had a dual exhaust muffler, itd look like it was designed for street racing,
BTW, where did you find those American flag brake light covers?

Thanks for the kind words. I do have roadside assistance but should probably update my plug kit and keep it in the JK.

Those flag light covers were on when I bought it. I like them so I left them on. It looks like they're available on a number of sites including ExtremeTerrain and Amazon.

Find a bracket to relocate that SS on top of the track bar. The Fox 2.0 SS is beefy, I know (I have one), but it can be damaged by rocks if you do rock crawling.

The only thing I dislike about the Fox 2.0 SS is the tendency for it to push the steering wheel to he side. Fox does make one that eliminates that problem, but it is ex$pen$ive.

Thanks for the info. No steer pull, thankfully.
