Re: Anyone from Michigan?

Welcome! Good ole Jackson, here. Just starting to get mod heavy. Hopefully a lift and engine work over the summer.

Re: Durango headers?

What did you do with the cats? Just cut out the stock ones and put them in? About how much did the install cost you? PM if you don't want to share with the world.

I'm debating on what color reps to get for my beryl green wk. I love black chrome but I haven't seen it on a jeep yet. I really just want to see it in the light. If anyone has pictures of their black...

TJM springs

Has anyone tried these? They seem legitimate. They give a 1" lift which is really all I'm looking for. I found them on summit racing

Re: need help please. .

those are going to require a lift, probably with a pinch weld. They're 32in compared to the stock 29.5in. without a lift, you'll need spacers and a lot of help from the gods

How do you like that sway bar setup?

As for the CA's, all of the ball joints and bushings are going bad. Rather than paying for them to be pulled and pressed, I'm doing all new arms with the ball...

Re: What's left?

I actually have a really good deal on the Addco bars. If the front bar is worth the hassle, I'm just going to the pair.

What's left?

Last fall, I added Bilstien HD's to all four corners, new spring isolators, and new Moog UCA's. The ride was greatly improved and now I'm ready to finish it off.

My plan is to add at least a rear...

Re: 5.7 intake

The only true cold air intake is the Bwoody. The others are just short ram noise makers. As for TB spacer, it's not worth it. The way to go is a ported throttle body. 85mm so you don't have to tune...

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler question

You shouldn't have any problems with those tires. Since they are stock size, nothing should change with clearance. The only reason you would have issues is if you were to go with a larger tire than...
