    I dont know what's special about that package. I'm thinking you could have run a longer shock if you're using the stock lower shock mounts. Also, with 4 doors I think most people don't even run wedge spacers. They run the stock rear driveshaft without adjusting the rear pinion. With an aftermarket driveshaft you will tilt up the rear pinion, but not near as much as on a 2 door.

    ? Slight. Did you install the wedges backwards? If not, don't worry about it.

    Got everything mounted up in the back. Rancho 330 shocks seem WAY short to me. Gona have to cut the factory rubi sliders until my LOD ones get here and looks like trip the pinch weld. Sits a smidge high in the back but dont have the Evo carrier and 37" tire mounted up and running no rear bumper. But after installing front bumper/winch it will probably even back out again. Might pull the wedges and see what it looks like. Seems as though rubiDave was accurate with the 332 shocks and no Rockstars and 330 shocks with them. Called up Marcus at RCO to send me out a pair of them.

    Clearly he and northridge have been taking care of you by selling you shit you don’t need, like coil correction wedges.

    Nobody has sold me a thing I didnt ask for. I havent ordered crap from Northridge. Just because I dont order everything from Exodus dont put me on the cross to crucify. I tried to order some things from him but it was 2 or 3 days before I ever got a reply from him, maybe he was busy, I dont know. I dont know the man and he doesnt owe me anything. I called up Marcus on his cell phone and he sent me an invoice inside of 30 minutes.

    Ive heard of people busting balls for ordering certain parts but you wana take it to a whole new level and criticize my vendors? I mean I didnt even order Teraflex and alot of it was Evo products, which is totally in line with the WaL agenda! Like I said, send me that credit card info. Now back to regularly scheduled programming if you will.

    The WAL Agenda? Lol. I can assure you, no one here really cares what you put on your own Jeep. Enjoy your Jeep however you see fit.

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.
