I just ordered the led kits from OneWayLight.com for my interior and my dash. Gonna be awesome for the expedition direction my Jeep is headed. Low draw, low power, awesome durability. Jason is a fantastic guy to speak with and answered all my redundant questions without issue.

Thanks. I don't care for the color, but I'm gonna leave it. Jeeps burning oil pretty bad, so I don't know what I'm going to do

Hopefully the problem causing oil consumption is an easy fix.

Its smoking from my exhaust pretty good and it smells like burning oil. I think I may just pick up a stock newer lower mileage cherokee and swap all my stuff. Then sell what's left. That won't happen but I can dream right?

Well good luck! We'll the neighbor who agreed to sell me the 99 is now jerking me around. Not sure if the deal will take place or not. Time will tell. It's not that big of deal for me one way or the other. I have been in the market for a small pickup for a while. That actually suits my needs better. I'm close thanks being where I wanna be on my XJ. The sliders and steering are the last to major things on my list. Guess I'll hunker down and wait on the weather coming my way.

I converted all my lights, except headlights, inside and out to LEDs as my first upgrade. Really love the look of the LEDs. The only problem I had on the interior is that the dimmer for the dash doesn't work. The dash lights are on or off no dim function. Doesn't bother me though as I like my dash lights bright. Now the damned turn signals were another story.

These are plug and play (swapping out bulbs just like in your house) and there is a possibility of some coming soon that work with the dimmer switch. Those are what I really want. We'll wait and see when they get here.

Mine were easy, plug and play. I did change the dome lights builds for a flat panel type LED. I like the light the LEDs put out a lot.

Just finished up installing my wheel spacers. I got them from Supreme Suspensions. They are well built, machined from billet aluminum. The machining looks real good and they fit extremely well. The only one I had a problem with was the left rear wouldn't go on properly. Turn out it wasn't a problem with the spacer but was the axle flange had a burr on it. A couple of seconds with the angle grinder and it went on fine. The spacers are hub centric. I replaced my old beat up lug nuts with locking lug nuts.

Removed the center console, winter prep for Spring/Summer fun times. Trying to get ready to pull the front carpet as soon as the nicer weather gets here. Learned how to remove the automatic shifter handle, and didn't even punch myself in the face doing it

Spent my lunch hour pricing out exterior paint. Going to make an effort to spend some quality time with the XJ making her look/feel better this year.

Can anyone advise please?
I have already done a 2" lift on my xj. Now wanting another 2" to fit 31" wheels comfortably and on a very small budget. Can anyone recommend a suitable solution?
I changed the coils in front to longer coils and in the rear I just extended the shackles. Can I add a leaf in the rear (Was thinking to just use the main leaf of my old leaf pack and add it to my new pack) I know I'll need new Shocks and was thinkinh of Rubicon Shocks.
