Wheels and tires are Moto Metal MO978 18x9 +18mm and Nitto Ridge Grappler LT275/70R18. Pinch weld mod with a LOT of additional hammering.

Suspension is OME MD front Springs, OME HD rear springs, Koni Special Active shocks and struts, JBA Front Upper Control Arms, and Core 4x4 adjustable rear control arms.





Mine was $900. I needed most everything from the bar forward from an accident anyway, so it wasn't that much additional over factory stuff. I thought about a winch, but the winch bumper seems looks like it sticks out a a lot. Wasn't a fan of the look. Looks like you can still do a hidden winch with some modification to this bumper, so I'll likely go that route in the future.

Thanks for the feedback. I noticed the winch version appears to stick out further also and would like to avoid that.

Raffish A(nother) new hub went on this weekend as well as a new ps pump, (with a flush).

I really don't get why we have to use unicorn juice for a basic hydraulic system.. $75 when $10 should do, fthat...

All quiet and happy again..

SteveROntario I measured the clearance on the Jeep and the van on the weekend. The van may have it if you include the cross member on the Jeep.

Mine was around 165 miles to empty when the pump clicked off at full, so that makes me think it's tied to the gas gauge.

rkins Just used my stimulus check to get the AC working on the WK. Had to pull the dash and also replaced the recirc door motor, which had a stripped gear. $$$

Th0r I'm also Fitting a KB Off-road front bumper. Gonna have to get my truck on a frame machine cause the front end is a bit tweaked from a hit. I knew this going in. It bolts up, but since there's no "give" with steel, it doesn't line up as well at the plastic bumper. It's got a slight downward tilt that leaves a 1" gap between the top of the bumper and the headlights.

Th0r Did some more audio stuff. Cut out one of the storage compartments and built a box into the load floor for two 6.5" subs I had laying around. Metal grilles will be here tomorrow, and I still need to find some matching carpet. CDT Audio 3" speakers (still waiting in the grilles) and 28mm tweeters glassed into the a pillars. I also have Audio Development 6.5 speakers in the front doors. Three way active with 6.5's crossed @ 80-200hz, 3's @ 200-3000hz, and tweets @ 3000hz and up. CT Sounds PA components in the rear doors for fill. Run off an 8 channel DSP feeding two 4-channel CT A/B amps and one CT mono D amp for the subs.
