Well hell just when I thought I was done.

Hadn't really got to take it anywhere but around the house, testing the flex on a couple rock pile behind my house I had found that my front tires are rubbing my cage and firewall
Was thinking of running a set of yota rears to move my front axle forward but I decided to use something better

Gots some more goodies for my 3 link set up.
Adjustable upper coil brackets
and the lower coil bracket has shock and lower link all in one


Also picked some 2x4 1/8" tubing to redo the front frame clip. I'm to lazy to cut all the stuff off so I'm going to build new frame rails

I picked up two sets of coils this weekend from Chris and chad. One set is TJ and chad wasn't sure what the othere set was. I'll mess around with the two sets and see witch one works better.
I should have those Rancho 44044 out in a few weeks also

I have some coils out at the shop that you can try out too. I dont know what they're out of, but you can see if they will work for you.

Jeeps are for girls
And guys that wish they were girls.....

Automatic transmissions are gay.

Flipped up tow mirrors are the sagging pants of the truck world.

Not at the moment, I plan on taking a couple days off work after first the year so I can install the 3 link front.

Just been driving it around the house and playing in the mud a little
