Been a while since I've updated this.

So I removed the front sway bar after CANVAZ 2014 (broke a link). The X rolls a little around corners, but other than not too noticeable.



Ive been going out to the White Tanks about once a week trying to get some good sunrise and X pics. Realize I need to stop using my cell to take pics.


Today I installed an auxiliary fuse box. So far I had three separate power wires coming off of the battery powering auxiliaries. I was so tired of seeing the wires and was afraid of a future fire. So now everything is neat and clean.

Picked up the fuse box at Napa for $30. There are some really nice ones online, but I prefer to buy things in person. It has 10 terminals so I am set for future items.


So far I have my bumper lights and my siren wired to the box. Roof lights (front and rear) should be wired by the weekend.

Wired up my roof lights today while it was slow at work. So happy that they finally operational. Running the wires through the roof were a bitch. I also pre ran wire for future lights in the rear.

Something I'll need to do eventually. I thought about running the wires while I had my headliner down. Good work PitSnipe!

Looking very good. I like how you manage the fuse box system.  Question ?

Running all those lights do you have any power drain issues?

I liked the desert shot. The X in their element. 8)

So the stock front struts blew out some time ago. Thanks to Remo I was able to fix the bouncy ride. I did have to add my little touch to the spacers though.



Lets get this party started. I love being able to work on my rig at work.



So both front struts were leaking bad as I already knew. Upon further inspection I noticed that the passenger side strut rod looked bent. I pulled the bottom bolt and the entire strut and spring assembly blew apart. I couldn't believe that it was holding up as I drove it.



I installed the 5100 Bills and spacers.



So I love the ride now. No more bouncing down the road. So far no coil bucket.
I now have 3" in the front and rear and it is finally level. Ground to fender well I am at 38"

So my coworker has an XJ with 6" of lift. He was baffled when he parked next to me and I was sitting higher than him. Just made me laugh. Yes I know he has way more flex and travel than me.

dude thats awesome. I love parking next to jeeps and my rig is sitting higher.

have you tried cranking the shocks more to see how the ride changes you crank it more and more? i'm surprised you havent got any cbc. I may do some cranking on my radflos to get a little more lift and see how it goes.
