New shocks
Gas tank skid
HD steering kit

All new suspension joints
New radius arm brackets on the lower links so I can use misalignment spacers
Relocate the steering stabilizer bracket so that I can get my sway bar disconnected
Polish the last two rims and paint the fake lock rings
New header and pipe to cat and a new cat
Probably more as I get into all this crap.
You still have the zj?

What rear lockers do you daily driver TJ/JK guys run? I've always had full time lockers in my CJs, but they were never daily drivers. Not sure what to install in the JK on a budget. Thoughts on running a rear lock-right in a daily driver?

imo, it's fine. I ran a lockright for several years with 37s on a DD and then once it finally was worn out, I swapped in a spool and never looked back

that was also when the WB was about 130" so it wasn't very noticeable unless slow sharp turns (like gas stations, parking lots)

didn't bother me at all during the winter either, but everyone has their own opinions

That's good enough for me. Hope everything is good with you guys.. except the part about being neighbors with ms Chaffer666.... Although the other tenant in the household is OK in my books...

You can come over an use my internet, but bring beer and a set of wrenches. Got to get that early bronco wrapped up.

While we wait, here's something entertaining to look at from my back yard this weekend.

Mines not a daily driver but it could be. I'm running a Detroit in the rear and it's noticeable but not that bad. This winter will be it's first real test, if I don't like it an ARB will be going in and the Detroit will go up front.

I would consider a detroit, but I don't really have the knowledge to replace an R&P / new carrier quickly and Tommy C.'s not around anymore.

If Ryan gets enough unpacking done before I get home from work tomorrow, I might be able to put my spreadsheet together and run over to Shawn's tomorrow and steal his internets to post it!

Everyone encourage Ryan to get ALL of the unpacking done tomorrow!! ;-)
