Finally finished grinding of the stock lower control arm mounts from when I put long arms on it. I did this in preparation for new mounts to get welded on in their place to go back to sort arms.

Also going to swap the 4"Teraflex coils for 2" OME & adding high line fenders so it well be a low cg rig.

Awesome looking jeep. Once you recover from the cost of lifting it sell those running boards and use the money towards rocker guards with a step

Are you selling the long arms and hardware and springs?

I'd advise not doing the soft top door surrounds. But that's just me.

Welded and grinded my brake pad sliders. Was much easier than I thought it would be. The only thing is those welds are hard as you cannot believe!

Welded and drilled a thicker, stronger plate for the axle side track bar mount.

Gave the TJ a nice hose down to keep the salt off of her. Fresh home from the car wash.


Anyone have a guess at what size lift is on her from this side pic? Not sure what size the PO put on.

Do your springs have spacers?

Put the sport trac rotors and akebono calipers on.
Got my 7/8-18 jam nuts in the mail.
Put the new power steering line in.
Filled the brake fluid, but still need to bleed it.
It's too cold for this ****.
