I didn't. Everything except for the white ring was painted. The decal was just temporary. It's just a cutout from some automotive vinyl wrap. I tried using it for those little chrome strips between the buttons, but it was a pain in the ass. Gave up and just used painter's tape to mask off everything. Then scuffed the chrome with some fine grit paper (3000-5000, I think). Then hit it all with a few light coats of spray paint.Did you use decals for all of the chrome? Where did you get those? I used a paint pen for the horizontal trim parts between the buttons, but I was hesitant to do the same for the knobs.
switched from my 5 spd to a six speed. Haven’t figured out the boot issue yet. Running the Jeep with a gaping hole.After looking at several pictures on this website, I finally figured out how to properly install the boot on my shifter so that it doesn't move when I shift and leave gaps. Something little, but it was bothering me.
I ended up lengthening the lowers on the rear by about 1.5". Totally straightend the bend in the springs.Today i lengthened my control arms in the back to as long as possible in hopes that it would correct my rear sway issue. It most certainly helped but i think i still need to dial in the front more. Gonna take some advice from my new friends on the forum and ditch the DPA, and hopefully b free as they say i will.
I def did bring my pinion angle down. I kinda needed to as my spring saddles were at a drastic different angle and causing a bend in my springs. Straightened it right up and reduced my rear end sway. Im gonna have to get a SYE in the near future. Dont wanna wheel it too hard until i do.Hopefully you won't experience driveline vibration. I believe by lengthening the lowers you brought your pinion angle down.
The other issue you might check is clearance between the diff cover and gas tank skid.I def did bring my pinion angle down. I kinda needed to as my spring saddles were at a drastic different angle and causing a bend in my springs. Straightened it right up and reduced my rear end sway. Im gonna have to get a SYE in the near future. Dont wanna wheel it too hard until i do.
Very nice! I did the same but on the other side of the column and in a matching color so it would not be as noticeable. I also wired it up to be powered only with the ignition for those times I leave the Jeep in the driveway with no doors.
How did you pull that off? I cant imagine a tire store giving full credit, they have to sell the tires used.
