Installed fresh brakes and rotors all the way around plus new shocks and stabilizer. The hardest time I had was getting the nut on top of the front passenger shock off. Thank god for the saws all! ;-)

From what I've read on other forums, it's adding spacers/washers to the front bolt points of the back seats to give it a little bit of backwards rake. This may or may not have been what this guy did though.

Thanks... it should look sweet on Dozer too

I used about a can per wheel... did 5 coats last one thick til the can ran out...

Trash bags over the rotors, 2" painters tape on the tires 4" wide... spray...as you can see I did my lugs too cuz everyone else doesn't, I'm abnormal that way I think it looks tougher... up close the lugs look cool, and I have no chrome at all now... just the way I want it...

What happens when you have to use a lug wrench?

Likely they'll get messed up...then just have to respray I guess... that's why I did a rotation before spraying them... so I won't find out for another 5000 miles either way, I like it better...

I think you may be on to something here, looking at his original picture, the lower portion of the seat appear to be reclined back a bit.

I'm definitely going to investigate this with mine.

Awesome work. I love the fact that I'm not the only one to have ordered his bike and Jeep in the same colour combination. Bike nerding is almost as addictive as Jeep nerding.

Nice! I've got a 2x4 with fork mounts on it to do the exact same thing. Then I've got a rack that sits nicely on the spare tire for when I need to carry more bikes, or have the kids with us or something.

I have been looking at all different types out there. When I pulled the jeep out from under the roof there was around 2" of clearance. When I get around to getting the roof back on I will let you know how it goes

The ones I am using are self retracting also has a thumb lock to release.

Just curious if you have any additional rattles. I have been looking at the same style bumper but am concerned about it's sturdyness.

Thanks!
