How about a new thread, things you need to do before wheelin

Mine
Install the following.....
1) Four Real winch Bumper
2) Warn 9.5ti winch
3) ARB snorkle
4) Optima yellow top battery
5) RE 4.5 coils
6) RE Slip yoke long

On a good note all but #3 is coming form Swiss Mountain 4X4 along with Steve's goodies, so we will get our goodies at the same time rofl

front bumper (something like c4x4)
selectable locker for the 8.25(wish they made the e-locker for the 8.25)

Sheeeeeet...I gotcha all beat....

Things I need to do on the XJ:
1. 9.5 TI Winch
2. Gen II discos
3. Front springs
4. Rear leaf springs
5. Front Axle Seals
6. Replace all the heim joints
7. ZJ Tie Rod and ends
8. Front Track bar
9. Either a t-case drop or SYE
10. Wire a bypass into my AW4 (for full manual control of gears)
12. Wire a manual bypass for the electric fan
13. Change all fluids
14. Tuneup
15. Replace the driver side seat frame

Things I need to do on the TJ:
16. Replace the front axle seals
17. Replace the leaking rear axle seals
18. Fix the leaking rear diff cover
19. Change all the fluids
20. Tuneup

Did I mention that all of the above needs to get done before the end of February. Shocked

Like Jen said, I have to get the bumper for the TJ and put it on. I'd also like to redo the exhaust on both Jeeps with Flowmasters. This weekend is shot cause I have to work. So that leaves me 2 maybe 3 weekends to get all that crap done. Rolling Eyes

edit - I fogrot about the Optima yellow top (XJ), fabbing up an alternator splash guard (XJ) and getting a CB radio back in the TJ (replacing the one that was stolen)...I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting too. Confused
