I am hoping to take off this afternoon to get more stuff done....I dont wanna be doing stuff when we get there cept drink beer
You most definitely derserve some suds. I might also suggest a cheap bottle of champagne to crack on the bumper. Bur first put a towell on the bumper to avoid scratches! Coolest jeep I have ever seen.

RJ looks amazing! I have been following this build for months, and am constantly impressed. My '06 Golden Eagle edition is jealous!

So I'm working late again....by myself since everyone I know who knows anything about brakes has bailed on me. Just as well, when the rubber hits the road the only one you can truly count on is the person you see in the mirror each day. I guess I really do live up to my theme song after all......

Regan, I meant to ask you about those rear flares. Are they just stock CJ flares bolted to the YJ tub? Or did you have to mod them/the tub at all? I've always preferred the rounded CJ rear flares to the YJ/TJ squared rear flares. Jeep looks fantastic, by the way.
