  2. The setup you mentioned being set on is the exact setup I have(OME/AC heavy duty springs up front, LR 9449 rear springs) with 275/55 20's(32"). To date I have not had any issues. As the other posters have mentioned, it drives a little different and the ride is more stiff. But I'll say I have been very impressed with the road ride quality. When I go off road is when I feel the rigidness in the suspension. I changed out my CV axles, but only beacause of the post concerns when doing my initial research about lifting it. They didn't really need to be changed. I also put manual hubs on which has been a big benefit as well. The setup you are thinking of going with should be just fine. Yes some things will be out of their normal range which could cause more potential strain on them. If you go in knowing this and are o.k. with changing a FE suspension part every now and then, just lift it! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  3. Sorry if this has been addressed already, but couldn't find in my search. On my way home this afternoon, I had to stop quickly and my drink spilled over and pretty much the entire drink spilled over onto the shift area. About 40 minutes or so later, the truck started shifting funny. I noticed that the Overdrive light was coming on/off and that was the cause of the intermittent shift/rpm fluctuations. Is there a sensor and/or connection for the overdrive under the center console I need to clean/dry? Has anyone else experienced something similar? The truck did not act as if the tranny was going bad. Still shifted smoothly, just everytime the o/d light came on it would downshift, when it went off, it shifted back to the next gear.

  6. Poor boys rear tire carrier. Just mocked up t this point. Going to need to do a little work to get it better stabilized. Gonna figure out a way to mount my jerry can holder on it too. A project for another day! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  7. Is it necessary to rerun wire for the door speakers if you replace them with aftermarket ones if you have a bose system? I'm guessing it's the above posters preference to do so? I didn't in my 96 r50 I had and the system was awesome, but was'nt a bose system. My 03 has the bose. Sounds great, but looking to put my old system in it to take it to the next level.

  10. Thanks. It was under $450. Got it off ebay of all places. It's a winch bumper for an xj cherokee made by goliath. They are based out of FL. They are still available on Ebay and ship for free. You can get different front bar setups like bull bar, stinger, or pre-runner(like mine) or just the bumper. Took a little fab work and most of a day to get it mounted properly, but all in all it fits great. I like this one because its wider than most xj bumpers and actually fits the pathy better than some others I have seen. You can see some fab/install pics if you look at previous posts in this thread.

  11. Replaced the roof mounted off road lights and completed fabrication/mounting for new rear bumper! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  12. I did weld a hitch directly to the new bumper, but kept the other one too. Instead of building a swing arm, I'm going to fab up a spare tire carrier to insert into a tilting carrier attachment where the wheel will simply fold down to access the cargo area instead of swing out. Going to try this first to see if I like it before forking out the $$$ for. Swing arm kit. Here are a few pics of the troutfinder after she got much needed bath! Been about year. Next big project is to get her repainted. Thinking strongly about going Heath Gray from.the old Fj's. If that becomes too difficult, then it's most likely Cement from the new taco's.
