    BCF3CA91-ED7A-4069-8FAF-BC9940A2903F.jpg Well i have been tracking down the last sound bothering me on the 2016 jk i purchased in October. A slight clunking on wash board or choppy roads. After getting it onto my brothers hoist and going over everything thouroughly again with an extra pair of eyes and only thing we found was front shock upper bushings crushed and blown out because whomever changed out the shocks to Rancho 9000’s was too lazy to get the upper polyurethane bushings in so they left the stock rubber bushings and just rammed the shock rod thru them. Getting two bushings for those shocks turns out to be rediculous so gave up on the Rancho’s altogether right away and with the wife’s “go for it” approval my new Fox 2.0 shocks will be here today. Also i cut away some of the plastic fins above passenger side front shock tower to allow the proper room to access and install new shocks and their bushings correctly.A774FB08-8E56-4C8E-8765-995410C1DE10.jpg

    New Fox shocks arrived this afternoon and since i was in the garage already i finished the install too with a little help from a neighbor. Nice enough to help his half cripple neighborD99944BF-0C25-44CF-9C29-4976FD432830.jpg55116AA0-8683-4833-A235-20C347BC9AEF.jpg

    Just realized I didn’t put it in this thread just my Jeep build thread. Added this switch to A-pillar along with a fuse box under the hood on drivers side of Jeep.

    I picked those up also from Quadratec alil while ago. They make a huge difference. The extras that ame in the pack. Fit a friends 98 ZJ. So it was a win win.
