Painted my center caps black instead of having them chrome. Waiting for my BL to arrive.

Well we got the YJ rolling today. We got the control arms all tac welded in and put it up on the lift to complete the welds tomorrow. Checkout the cool front shocks We tacked in a couple tubes to hold it up and tomorrow will complete the shock hoops. I will have the coils for them on monday. We even got Jack working today. We are getting very close and should be ready for the first test run next weekend.











Big thanks to both Joe and Jack for taking time out to help me on this build.
Jim

The OX is just bright yellow and with the camera flash it came out very bright.

well guys i've decided.. if my lift kit dont ship on the 30th AS I WAS TOLD BY THEM i'll be talking to quadratec about canceling my kit. Its over 1 full month now. I still dont have a lift kit. I've had it with broken promises and excuses. First off i was lied to and told to that my lift will ship by friday that same week, friday comes I get nuthing, now a month later still nuthing.. They shipped me the shocks only and i'm pretty sure they will try to make me pay for shipping them back but i will fight agains it. We will see what happens on the 30th.

The new front suspension is pretty much complete now. We got everything welded in and built the front mounts for the coilovers. I will have the coils tomorrow so I should have some flex pics coming out very soon.
Today's progress
Coil hoops


Side shot tires on the ground and drivable

NP, I am just exicted to get to go wheeling again. This thing should be amazing. I can't wait.
One question though? I am now linked front and rear should I now post in the TJ forum?????

It is a 3 link they built the truss with it and until we test it all out I am leaving the bracket on as you never know on a custom set up
