It actually just got serviced by a family friend who always takes care of the jeep. He said there wasn't anything on it that didn't look good. He even greased the bushings to get rid of the squeeks. I would like to do a gauge pod to be knowledgable on the oil

Just wondering what you guys think... its that time of the month. I have some extra money put aside from what I need for the lift. I can get the springs this month... but I also have enough for some jba a arms. Should I buy them? Or invest in some more armour?

First recovery
then skids
then work on the lift etc
or just keep saving
I have yet to see a law that says you have to spend your money and not save it up for bigger purchases. :ROTFL:

Still no skids and only one recovery point.
Hmm..

I have all but the t case skid, the rear shackle is on the way... but I will still be in a rough spot for front recovery. I figured that since I was getting all the lift stuff together it would be easier to have it all and do one install rather than come back to it later. I know the a arms help but I'm still confused as to what they do... they help correct the angle and prevent some anwanted rubbing right? Also how is the quality on the mopar diff guards? I've seen that a lot of people have upgraded them. They aren't so expensive that I would have to blow all my money on them.

So must to update with plans that I have for the Jeep, some in the near while others are in the distant future.
SOON:
bedline roof, roofrack, roof bars, and light covers
Put rock lizard bumper on when it ships
Maybe going fenderless, not sure how it will look with the rl bumper

LATER:
Jba steel d30
Regear to 4.56
Lock front and rear, anyone have exprerience with the Spartan locker for d30??
Cragar soft 8
32s
Kamodo dragon rear bumler

is 4.56 too much for 32s? because that would sace quite a bit if I change my mind about the d30.

Hahaha while it might take a little longer to get, you can't knock the quality of it.
With the rust on spot on the tail gate, the whole rook, rack, and tail gate are getting bed lined sometime soon. Should look pretty sharp I think!

Has any one tried making some lawn edging flares for the liberty? I know sounds ghetto just google it, if you do it right they are nice and look like bushwhackers.

This may sound like a dumb question, but am I just splicing in more wiring to extend them? Also did you make a bracket to attach it or use the two bolts already on it somehow?

If you haven't done it already, I will post pictures of how tommudd mounted my washer bottle when he helped me relocate mine.
