Just wanted to pop in here and blame you for making me buy those damn HID lights!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wait, you mean you didn't make me buy anything? So just got them 'cause they're awesome? Okay that makes sense. Yeah I got a set of the HID's and damn they're bright even with the factory frosted lenses. I couldn't be happier with them Thanks for the writeup Karter!

They are quite amazing, I can see alot better at night now. I'm sure they will be even better when I put my clear headlight housings in....




My shocks came on saturday, I will only be running 4 for now, I'll get the two aux shocks sometime in the future

You can get those exact spicer Ball Joints at Napa. They are the premium or whatever they call them, I think Napa Calls them chassis master. I got mine with my discount at work all four with the adjustable camber bushings for 160

Your gonna love the Bilsteins, the nice thing about getting the auxiliary ones from them is that they valve them specially for Broncos. I think the vavling on the rear is something like 360/180 and on the front its like 125/75 ( I'm not 100% sure but it's something drastic like that).

How big are the Michelins? Selling them for how much? Wish I had known sooner, I had to order a brand new one cause my passenger front got knifed or something.

So i've been wanting a CB radio, and I'm really considering this one

http://www.walcottcb.com/cobra-75wxs...dio-p-520.html

Just a note, i can get it cheaper, that page just shows everything about it well....


I kinda want to make my AM/FM radio antenna into a CB antenna... any way it could be both? I dont use my AM/FM often but it'd be nice not to lose something if I dont have to.... can firesticks receive AM/FM?

That may be the wrong tire size but I dunno...

Just wish I'd known before I ordered a new tire, or I probably just would have bought one off of you. :/

How much tread left, for the guys here who need to know?

Alright so this is what I am thinking for my CB setup... I might just mount a firestick on the tire carrier but i'd really rather put it where the stock antenna goes....


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER



http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I like this setup because its small and i can slap it in under the dash without it being seen....

Its recommended to get an external speaker, and since when my truck is done it will have 35's, a lightning exit exhaust and a loud stereo system, thats PROBABLY a good suggestion! :-D


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._luc_sim_01_02

I figure I'll need this if i mount it on the tire gate


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._hashrec_04_02




Now I need an idea on a good SWR tuner, and a good firestick (or FS II) tunable antenna.... Like I said before if i can mount it on the front of my truck in the stock antenna location that would be the best, if not I'll throw it on the tire carrier....

any CB radio experts throw some suggestions my way?

I just got the radioshack SWR tuner. Works well enough for my purposes.

I'm gonna look into that, just need to figure out antenna and crap... never really dealt with CB's before.... How do you send text messages on a CB radio? I dont see a T9 keypad or qwerty keyboard

Since yours was an eddie bauer, they should have been 265/75's (which mine are, they are the 14 year old OEM's) so i guess the previous owner when he got these tires put on, the shop saw the 235/75 size (which is for XL's and XLT's) listed and threw this size on... or something....


at any rate, if anyone wants any of those tires let me know, ill let em go for anything... they'd all make great spares, probably have another 20k on them

Alright well, theirs not that much to update yet so i'm just gonna jot down some thoughts...

I was hoping to replace my balljoints this weekend, but my brothers going to Switzerland and he has some of the tools i need, plus theirs no way in hell i'm gonna attempt this myself... My luck, something big will break and my truck will be blocking the hearse from going back in the garage.

I guess this weekend i will swap in my new coolant tank, its gonna suck since the tank in there still has coolant and alot of washer fluid in it... i've been trying to wash my windows as much as possible

I'm gonna pick up some black paint sometime this week as well and spray down my brackets, just to get SOMETHING done....

I also hope to order some HF shackle brackets, i'll use those to do my flip since my stock ones look like junk.

I'm going to look into having my 35's mounted on those rims i bought off of mack24 so they can be ready to go on (one day)

lastly, i might pick up 2 aux 5100 shocks before i put my lift on.... see how the budget is...

thats it, i'm still looking into CB stuff and what not, still need to get bolts and i'll have everything i need to do a lift.... I'm half tempted to do it myself since it SEEMS straight forward but... we'll see
