Just received my JB4 upgrade and should be installing by the weekend. Let's see how it compares to JB3. Should be fun!

Thanks for the info, I am planning to buy new ones from Tirerack once I settled in my new place. The place sells used 18s???

They have pretty much everything. I'm going to check them out pretty soon - my buddy plans on doing a bleach burnout this weekend. Do you want me to ask anything for you while I'm there?

Ok...I'll be on the lookout...I might shoot Mike an email when I get out of this meeting and get a tentative ship date...

I'm sure the JB4 install is exactly identical to the JB3 install...would be great to have you around for questions

There's a shop called SABS in Houston that you guys should check out. Good reputation with EuropeanAG.com

Babies burning in hell... not sure if babies actually go to hell, but I'm reconsidering the idea. Shouldn't god know if someone is going to turn out to be a dickhead?

Pretty sure BMS sells them. (That was a joke.) If it wasn't for the JB4 coming to me soon I would sell you mine. But aren't they only 30 bucks or so? Me getting that thing out of my car would cost you more than that, lol. I hate working on cars now. I used to enjoy it, but no.

Holy crap! I see sunshine!
Anybody feel like coming over and taking out my jb3 for me? Let me know how much you'd charge. Seriously, I hate working on cars now.

Yea, I was hoping for a used one quick so I can update and install my JB4 all at one time. Now I have to install the JB4 now, wait a few days-week for the USB Cable, reopen everything and update.

I've heard of SABS but Wheels America won my business until further notice. Just such a nice contrast to deal with competent professional people after my mini nightmare with IMC.

I've also heard good things about Wheels America... I had some wheels repaired by SABS a few years back, and they did a pretty good job and the wheels held up nicely
