this last one is just for the XJ lovers =]



this was my "cheap jeep" i bought a currie HD steer kit which i highly recommend, RC 4.5" lift with replacement leafs, TJ rear flares after i trimmed, rock-it hi flow air intake w/ k&n filter, i don't even remember the rims and tires because i bought them used, i just remember that they were 33's and rubbed like none other. also i had RE sway bar disconnects. i didn't tighten them down when i installed them and they fell off on the highway, instead of buying new ones i got mad and threw my sway bar away. BAD IDEA! DON'T EVER DO THAT!!!

So 2 weeks later I still have no wheel adapters... I finally sent the other ones back because the moron doesn't kno how to label stuff apparently... I guess 5x4.75/5x135 is close enough to 5x4.5... It is stamped right on the adapters. I'll be gone Friday so Saturday I should be looking more normal... I took the iroks in yesterday to get rebalanced...

So I graduated college on Thursday so I finally got some cash and order hopefully my last set of wheel adapters. So in the mean time I helped yotabalt replace the throw out bearing in his girlfriends car.... Needless to say half way through it started raining

I love having random helpful stuff laying around.
Plans for the week:
Fix door lock that seized up, install viper alarm system, prep the 8.8, and install some big tires FINALLY!!!

Well the wheel adapters finally came in on Thursday. Bad news I was out of town so Yotabalt hooked me up and put them on for me.

Got home today and tested her out... Bad news rubs when locked and loud and bouncy... Good news rolls down the road at 80mph without touching the steering wheel... So time for more lift but for now this is how she sits
