No badge of honor.Did you apply for the Badge of Honor?
How bad was Heart Attack Hill? After watching the video of the lady losing control, I'm a little nervous.
I assume the squeeze wasn't an issue... But I may want to run it with the soft top or topless.
Looking to add the same on my LJ. may be a dumb question, but which 5000's did you put on. Whats the compressed vs extended length.Replaced the Rancho 9000 with some 5000x, took the top and doors off and went for a ride!
There's a snubber there from the factory. Or at least on my 06 there is. My setup is honestly pretty hanky. It's just some 2.5" ish screws that fit into the factory holes and some nuts and washers to adjust to my liking. And they don't really land squarely on the tire since I'm running JT wheels and an adapter on the stock carrier so the tire sits up higher and cocks the snubbers sideways.
Glad to hear someone else does this. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written the for sale ad! Seriously considering selling it now for something a little bigger but, I know I’ll end up with a project that will cause me to go over budget and be less capable than this one.Same thing I do each winter while the Jeep hibernates- waffle between various upgrades and putting a for sale sign on it.
That front axle is sooo clean!Looking to add the same on my LJ. may be a dumb question, but which 5000's did you put on. Whats the compressed vs extended length.
(my “new to me” LJ has JUST new springs and 33's, so trying to figure out what i need to replace these Monroe shocks the previous owner put on)

I never used fluid film until Installed my savvy sliders raw (steel portion) and man that stuff is amazing. multiple rain falls, dirt and mud and they have been rust free for a month now.Jeep is from western South Carolina almost zero rust. Previous owner cleaned and painted most of the undercarriage. She’s gets fluid filmed this weekend.
Trying to keep this old girl minty.
I used it all over the place now. Boat, yard equipment, snow blower, Jeep. Kids bikes haha. It’s additive.I never used fluid film until Installed my savvy sliders raw (steel portion) and man that stuff is amazing. multiple rain falls, dirt and mud and they have been rust free for a month now.
Do you happen to know the factory paint color for that dash bezel silver? I have the same premium package but PO replaced the center bezel with double din Stereo aftermarket. My gauge cluster is the premium silver but couldn't find a manufacturer sticker with the paint color info. Hoping to be able to repaint the center bezel to rematch with the stock silver color.I am not the original owner but purchased the Jeep from the original guy when it had 8k miles on it. Yes they are original, everything was on the Jeep, hell even the manual was still wrapped up in plastic. The flares on my Jeep are painted and match the body color.
My LJ model is a Premium from the documentation I received with it. Two tone seats, center dash bezel is also silver while all else is black.
I took a quick measurement yesterday maybe 5” is extreme but they were 4.5” minimum. I’ll check again tomorrow.
Same for all models as in wider?
Thats a pretty good idea. Mine was crumbling at the water temp sensor when I removed the thermostat housing.Did the plugs (ngk) oil (penzoil 10w30 Dino high mileage ) and filter (mopar) and checked the frame, touched up paint were needed, and a 5tire rotation.
also started to replace and the cracked looming all around the engine bay. This allowed me to inspect all the wires as I went. Although small and simple, a nice piece of mind. I’ll end up doing every inch. Will help keep things clean and prevent any chafing / heat issues.

How long did the spark plugs take? I think I should probably change mine (I bet they are the factory originals from 2004)Did the plugs (ngk) oil (penzoil 10w30 Dino high mileage ) and filter (mopar) and checked the frame, touched up paint were needed, and a 5tire rotation.
