I thought I read somewhere that the Pintler used to be offered in 4.7" bs as well as the 5.2" bs. I've got the beadlock ones and still run wheel spacers to keep from rubbing, I suppose I have the...

You'll be looking for the wiper switch from Amazon, the heater control panel plus harness (kit on Amazon, ~$125), and then there's some extra plumbing required for the rear window washer fluid. All...

Nobody uses rings to center up the wheels on the JK. I know it's common with the Euro crowd but it's not something we bother with so long as the hub is large enough to go over your front centering...

That little hose was on the firewall?? I don't know that I have one of those and I bought my 2010 new. It would help to keep the water off of the slave cylinder though.

You've got to be careful with the "over built", the vehicle is designed with crumple zones in mind. Adding extra roll bars defeats that purpose and basically means you'll be absorbing all of the...

Yep, those are what I bought. They were on eBay (again, been some years) and they were $20/ pair.

Coming from a handful of TJ's, I felt your pain on the pedal. I chalked it up to electronic throttle and went with the Superchips which has taken a lot of the lag out of the pedal. I would guess that...

Yeah, helicoil kits are magic. I picked up one for repairing threads in a crossmember I bought. Drill to the exact size they call for, thread the piece in, snap the tang, then proceed with life. It...

I'm curious what kind of mileage you get out of them and weight. I'm with the BFG KO2 now and they're at 50k miles with 9/32" left but I'm looking to refresh the tread within a year.

Labor is a little high, particularly in our area. A head unit and an amplifier are going to make the biggest changes but they also cost more. I've stuck with just kickers in the rear with polyfil in...

That's one of the rare jobs where you don't want a jack stand. You've got to take out the track bar and then bounce the Jeep (for lack of better words) and see where it settles. Install your track...

That is what my "harness" looked like. There's a second piece that, I think, kept the feature where the radio plays for a short while after you turn it off- but I could be wrong on that function.

So you didn't listen at all? The bilstein is a gas shock so it'll give you a "push" on the steering. Sell it. Save the money and spend it elsewhere. Shiny parts under the Jeep don't go far.

Use an axle side mount that raises your track bar and that should solve your issue. On the brake lines, just out of the way is where they need to be. I've seen "show" rigs use springs to hold them...

It sounds like you might have a plastic header instead of the redesigned metal header. Pick up a new header when you put on the new top.
