Nice. The rears on our WK's inherently sag after just a few years. The front may settle a touch but definitely won't level out. You can either replace the rear springs, which would help for a few more years, or install the Monroe load leveler shocks in the rear. If you're not familiar with them, they're a standard gas shock with an attached coil spring for added load handling (coil over shock). With the 2" lift, the shocks you'll want are spec'd for a 4wd F150, 2006 or so. I've been running them for more than a year now and still great. They are stiffer than what you're probably used to so fair warning. You don't have to do anything tho, if the leveling doesn't bother you and you're good with the ride then no worries, just providing some intel. Kinda nice sitting up just a couple more inches, right?? I see you went with the Rubi Moabs and KM's as well, pick up a decent used set on the cheap? What's your sitrep on your tpms sensors?

Actually another member provided me with the same Intel about the MLLs for the 150 I might do it considering I Want somewhat I rake look where can I purchase them?

Also negative I have my Black Mambas MR1s with kms. Still getting used to the tire being loud lol but feels amazing sitting high and looking and wranglers in the eye haha.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

A few weeks ago, I hit a deer, coming home from work. It was able to get fixed, but when it was done. I noticed, that they put regular halogen lights on it, when the Jeep came with HIDs, from factory.

Once that got straighten out with insurance, and got paid for the lights. I went ahead, and installed them.

When I shopped for them, hands down best I found was Amazon. They come as a set so you only need to purchase 1 qty.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

05 wk
Installed new cam and crank sensors...just because I thought it couldn't hurt..cam...easy going. Crank...what a pain in the ass. Would not come out. Took over an hour to get it to pop past the oring. Today...the two upstream o2 sensors and then the rc bb.
