The WJ sold in 6 days on Craigslist. Sadly, the buyers aren't the type who I think will really appreciate it for what it is and what it can do, but that's on...

Definitely. I have no clue the going rate for Bilsteins these days. I think I paid right about $300 for the 5100s in this build. Had them many years now, still going strong.

Well it's been more than a year since I updated the build thread! Or really spent much time on Jeepforum.

You might have a pinhole leak where the clamp was. Over-tightened clamps can cut the rubber hoses. If you have enough hose, snip off the last 1" of the hose and throw a new clamp on there and see...

When my HP line went, it would only leak when it *wasn't* pressurized. The leak was at the fitting going into the pump. Under pressure it closed the leak, when cooling down the fitting opened up and...

2k @ 79 mph is not correct. Should be 2k at 70 mph, assuming you have 3.73:1 gearing.

Also, no trouble with 2nd OD here.

The Warn does fit all WJs 1999-2004. As for exactly why it says only 2002, you'd have to ask them. Probably released in 2002 and never updated the product description. FWIW, I had the Warn hitch...

I disagree that tie rods and sleeves for $400 is a good price. At that price you could have JKS replacements. That's about $150 in parts (Moog) and the remainder in labor. It's an easy job.

I don't think I've heard *anyone* get bad results from the OME lift. It's just a little expensive, and firmer than some people like. Personally I think these Jeeps really benefit from a firmer...
