Yeah you can say that again and I got five. My wallet hurts. I'm going to be working on the lift tonight I'll try to take some pictures. Basically I have the midsection done, the rear 44 out of the jeep and the cradle welded on ready to go back under the jeep, all the brake lines done, all the control arm brackets torched off and grinded smooth, and all other stock hardware off. Making moves in the right direction!

You rang? I'm not sure how thrilled I am to have someone obsessed over me. Love the jeep by the way.

Today was going to be the final push until I opened up the rear shock box from four wheel parts. Anyone see a problem with it?



Here is the rear axle painted. Shes going back under in a few minutes.

Well here she is. Other than rear shocks I need to order rear drive shaft and finish the exhaust and the lift is done for now.

I only seen one TJ up close in person running the full Metal Cloak stuff and it didn't look bad. He was on 35's and 2.5" of lift I think, but I still ain't a fan of that over arched front fender.

Looks good though bud, and nice welding job with that stick.

Thanks. The arched grows on you. I wasn't a huge fan but I couldn't decide between the overline and the arched. My buddy talked me into the arch and I'm glad he did. I love them.

Working on the jeep today. Things to do - exhaust, rear shocks finally came in so I'll slap those buggers on, oh yeah the brown truck dropped off me 4" flares so I'll attach them and take a few pictures, I have to install the pitman arm and bleed the breaks. After that maybe make some bump stops.


Happy holidays! Thanks for following along I'll post some pics today.

Without flares.



With 4" flares attached.





The 6" would probably cover the whole tire but I didnt think they would look as good as the 4"ers
