    Pretty sure that even if you could get them on the plane they would be more than 50 pounds so you would have to pay the overweight baggage charge.

    Saw the thread title. Expected more pics of Spicy Chicken going airborne. So disappointing.

    Military gets a 70lb bag limit on some airlines so I would be able to do it without get charged for the weight.

    I have met 2 people here on Oahu with coilovers. Both have had issues with rust, and both within a year. With the high cost of shipping to here, plus the salt air, no way I would run coilovers here. If I were you, I would wait till you get stateside. As you know, unless you want Chinese made stuff from 4WP, there just isn't much of a choice here on island. If you wait till you get back to the mainland, you'll have better choices and save money.

    I was stationed on Oahu from 2013-2016. I cam back to WA state one time and bought a Rubicon sway bar for my Sport, wrapped it up and checked it as bag. Delta looked very confused and just asked me to unwrap it and checked to see if there was any visible leaking oil/fluid. Each website will have a policy, Delta has a specific section for checking automotive parts. It shipped for free since military are allowed a few extra bags when on leave/orders. I did all of my shopping with NR (a dirty word on WAL now) while there because they were the only company that would ship and not charge a mind boggling fee.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
