Re: A Teen at Work!

Over the years, my bumper covers on either sides have taken a decent beating. I have already trimmed my front on and I love the way it came out. Recently, my rear bumper cover has been getting worse. I went to Rausch Creek and it cracked the lower passenger side of the bumper cover and and the paint on the driver side cracked and needs to be touched up; I still have to do that, but that's for another time. As for now, I took care of the ugly chopped up lines of my bumper and did so with a Dremel! Then, I cleaned up the front and the rear with Trim-Gard!



You can see the paint crack thing here:



Side profile; I think the rear looks pretty clean here:



And the Trim-Gard up front:

Re: A Teen at Work!

I don't think I ever made a post for these, but I am running OME HD coils in the rear to match my Bilstein 4600s with the RRO 2.25" spacers up front. I shot them with an undercoating first then top coated with red to match everything else under there! I would prefer to run these back there over spacers any day!

Re: A Teen at Work!

I have been doing so much to the Jeep recently, I can only describe it all in pictures! Details to follow, I gotta get some sleep!

Re: A Teen at Work!

I've been bad with updating, but good with pics! I went to Long Island the other day to meet up with a friend, ended up being an amazing trip!

Re: A Teen at Work!

I love my Jeep, from the way it looks to the way it sounds, but recently, you could hear me coming from a mile away not because of my exhaust, but because of my brakes. While it's a minor piece of maintenance, it was one I really needed. I ended up going with Centric C-Tek standard rotors and Posi Quiet pads in all four corners. The pictures speak for themselves...









Gave this a shot too, it worked I guess...





I'm happy with the brakes, they don't squeak, they bite nicely, and seem well made. Not much more you can ask from brakes!

I'll give ya the rundown of my setup.

Up front I have Bilstein 4600 struts with stock coils and RRO 2.25" spacers.

In the rear I have OME HD coils with RRO shocks that came with the spacer lift!

Re: A Teen at Work!

More boring maintenance! My outer tie rods had soo much play in them that they had to go. Not the most interesting thing, but I like to post everything I do for my own peace at mind, so bear with me. Besides, I'll leave off with a nice picture or something.

I went with the Moog serviceable ones.



Looks much nicer! You can also see my Addco sway bar that I have yet to make a post about.

Re: A Teen at Work!

So this was a long time coming, but I finally finished editing the video from Rausch Creek this past April! It took forever, I used new editing software so the entire time I was learning how to use it. In other words it took way longer than it should have and didn't come out as perfect as it should have... But I did my best to make it more enjoyable to watch than just a bunch of clips pasted together! Come check it out, there was a nice turnout and some cool things to see. And if you like it, please press the thumbs up to help get the WK platform some more love!

Here are some pictures from the trip!
