I really like this jeep! I'll take pics of it with the new shoes when it get me on in a day! Also there is a clicking sound that clicks at the front where the radiator is and I have not been able to diagnose it, maybe one of you 4.0 experts can help me out! Thanks
Oh and I've done the oil change and transfer case fluid changes already
But later on I need to do differential fluid

Well it was clicking all the time yesterday and it would get faster as the rpms got higher, it was towards the fans and the belts that it was doing it. So I took a stethoscope with a needle and put it on various places and never found it. But today when I drove my jeep it didn't do it anymore, it was weird haha

1 grand for an 88 with that many miles. Overall it looks great. I got my 89 also when I was 17 with 185xxx for 800. Just had to re grease the power windows and fix my power locks.

Right now my jeep has a 3" rc lift on it, I want to go bigger but I would rather not spend the 500 for a new lift, is there anyway I can block or shackle is up another 2 inches? Thanks guys

It should be bolted somehow to the front bumper. Believe there are two plastic tabs on it with speed nuts that somehow attach it. The tabs on my broke off and my vacuum reservoir moves around also.
