Noisy, did you get your engine fixed?
Also switch your vac hubs to the AVM Rugged Ridge manual lockouts and you won't have to worry about the vac leaks anymore.

I'm not a fan of rugged ridge. That's what I have and one day I walk out to my truck...and one of the hubs was gone. Guess they don't like off roading in 2WD.

Nobody took it off. It's parked on a secure lot with 24hr guards. It was there before I went shooting and after my quick trip to the barber it was gone

Headin to Auburn CA in the mornin. Gonna pick a ZF5 up for my 5.0 Ranger. It's only 2wd but when I get the chance I'm gonna rebuild it and convert it to 4wd. Then it's gonna be a BAMF instead of just a BASB (Bad Ass Sum Bitch)! Gonna be rollin with a 5 speed soon!

Added a little tire gel to the tires, added air to the tires as well, was down around 15psi on all 4tires x.X and used some trim restorer on the front bumper/mud flaps. Wasn't expecting the tires to be at 20psi (should be 35psi) since I refilled them around 4months ago. expected some lost but not that much. And since I have bigger then stock rubber, with a fat sidewall they didn't appear to be too low.

That is a significant difference, and experts say to check once a week the pressure or at least for signs of wear and/or tiny peebles that get in the tread. I try to check at least once a month, and since I still have the OEM Continental's with 68,000 miles on them, I know that I should probably check more often. Tires will lose a couple pounds per month, so that would explain the 15 pound loss. I bet aired up that you noticed a difference, and I can always tell when I'm low. What's weird is if you check frequently, one tire always seems to be lower than the rest. For me it is the front driver tire, but for my wife (in her Ford Edge), it is the passenger rear.

Edit: One thing that should be noted is that a "good" tire gauge should be used. Never go by the ones at the gas station on the end of the hose or the cheap pencil-type gauges. Even the $6 dial ones, at Wal-Mart, are so much more accurate.

put 1" belltech coil booster on the drivers side to correct my lean but it OVERcorrected it and now my drivers side is alittle too tall. So I'm taking the other spacer I didnt use and chopping it so it gives me about 1/4" less lift, I'm gonna swap it out, and it should be perfect
