NGAJeepguy Well, last week was new hubs, rotors, shocks & struts, calipers and brakes, brake flush.

This week is the AC actuator and spark plugs.

My WK is an odd one. The front has always lifted high. I had the OME HD and it put me at nearly 24" hub to fender. OME MD has me just under 23". I've also a lot of issues with aligning it. I suspect my subframe is tweaked, to be honest. That's the only thing I haven't replaced.




Tires were 305/55r20. They looked pretty badass in my opinion, but the first time I went off pavement I smashed the fenders and quarters....
Wow, that is a lot of travel to do that. My tires are stock size and stick out about an inch. With a 2" lift there hasn't been any interference.

Sorry, I posted this in reply 2.5yrs later, heh. Yeah, I'd like to find some of those eventually, after this virus crap is over.

JeepWKWJ0006 Nothing yet, just put up a thread on a job needed done. T-stat type deal, but can't get into vehicle without jumping battery and if I manually unlock it like I've done before, LOL, the alarm won't go off til I start it up. It's crazy.

nvrdone1 ive had problems seeing at night with my factory back up camera. So I installed led bulbs in the back up lights. that helped some but not enough. Yesterday I mounted a 6led cube under the bumper to the right of the hitch. I CAN SEE! it made a fantastic difference.

Vertisce21 I cleaned her up!

And then realized that I have some paint work to do...

I would post images but I apparently am not special enough to post images.

SteveROntario I bought new pads and rotors for the Jeep a couple days ago. I am going to keep it functional along with my other vehicles even if it doesn't get used much for the foreseeable future.

SteveROntario I bought a stainless fuel tank because it was available. Now I need to decide which vehicle gets it installed.

2005JGC Thoughts? I am trying to figure out what to do with the tow hitch... I figured the bumper would hang down low enough that it would look normal. The tow hitch is hanging down lower than anticipated/I want to make the bumper shorter than I anticipated being able to do. The lower crash brace/subframe/slider is going to be cut out and the charcoal canister is going to be relocated to the inside of said rails that are going to be cut out.

I am going to make this out of 3/16" steel and I have some shackle mounts that are going to be welded in the bumper and directly to the mounts (that are going to be directly above the subframe that is going to be cut out because that is where the frame/structure is on the jeep.

Future plans would be like a tree bar that goes up out of the flat behind the wheel, follows the angle of the tail light, then turns and goes under the window terminating at the back of the rear door on a plate that gets bolted on.

Also, dual swing arm is 100% a go. Ill build and piece that together after getting the bumper welded up and mounted.

Arneb04 Nothing huge but were all getting locked down and the weather is shaping up so I spent some time going over the chrome on my limited with eagle one chrome polish. All the rust trying to grow on the bull bar after the long winter came right off. Looks good again.
