The decal is aftermarket or at least not a US model factory badge. As far as who put it on there and for what purpose maybe Google can help. The age of the suspension is a factor but it isn't...

This was my second WJ dash removal, the first being about 13 years ago as a WJ rookie. This time it went quickly and there was no apprehension. The most time consuming aspect of the project was...

I can confirm at least in my scenario the Metra double DIN kit is clearly superior to the "original" aftermarket option. The two major benefits are the more level position of the radio and the two...

That sounds good to me. People on the forum are almost always going to tell someone wanting "the best" or "most reliable" to buy the OE part. The truth is, they're hardly ever wrong with that...

I don't know anything about adjustable control arms but for stock ones, do what you did with the body on jack stands and then let the wheel hang freely. Take a big punch and a hammer and persuade the...

O'Reilly usually carries BWD sensors and O'Reilly is always the most expensive option in my experience. They're the 7-11 of auto parts. You pay for convenience. There are probably more than couple of...
