I just installed a new transmission oil cooler for those HOT Yuma summers.



I had to take the front grill off to get at the mounting location



Cooler installed and ready to do some plumbing



I spliced into the transmission oil return hose



I just need to put the front grill back on, and I am finished

My new bumper from Rough Country

This picture shows the bumper bracket attached to the Jeep



The winch plate attaches to the main bumper, make sure you install it before you attach the bumper to the Jeep



The stinger bar and D-rings are all bolted on - I had to call John to come over to the house, to have a extra hand to help me tighten all the bolts.



The bumper is bolted on and ready to go on the Toy Run

Perry, do you plan on adding any more weight to the rear end? I was looking at some pictures today and saw your shackle angle on the rear leafs. You could get a ton more down travel if you adjusted it. If you plan on adding a heavy rear bumper or some corner protection that might help. If not you could either take a leaf out of the spring packs or move the shackle hanger forward a little. I personally like around 45 degrees of shackle angle. From the pictures it looks like yours are nearly vertical.

Hey Rusty , You have the swivel shackles on your Yota right ? do you think that would be a good choice for Perry also ?

I do not have the swivel joints (or johnny joints to some people) on my 1st gen Toy. I would be hesitant to put them on a daily driver, but that's just me. Supposedly they are perfectly fine for highway driving if they are on one end of the spring only though.

But in Perry's case I think he would get a ton more droop and a far softer ride if the angle was adjusted. If he got new springs with the lift though, they may break in, and help the angle too.

Hey Rusty, personally I like 44 degrees not 45 degrees of shackle angle.... :0) LOL When are you going 4 wheelin' with us? It would be great to see you on the trails again...
