The Makings of a good weekend.

I would have to say this weekend turned out to be a very productive one for my Jeep. I installed a Rubicon Express 4.5" Extreme Duty lift, New Corbeau seats with 4 point harnesses, new rear bumper, and mounted my high lift jack. Here are some pics from all of this.

Well it's not completely finished. My front shocks are on back order so have to install those once they come in. But other than that I think this was a very productive weekend.

That's the lift I'm getting about a month from now. How was the install? And are those the shackles it came with? I'm looking at the bilstien 5100 shocks. Looking good though!

Thanks for all the comments so far! Soonercamp the install was actually fairly easy following the instructions and yes those are the shackles that came with the lift. The rear shackles are kinda hard to see but they are boomerang shackles and they are all 4 greaseable.

1988Wrangler,
What you see in the pics is only half of the dash I haven't finished installing it yet. The part the gauges sit in was custom made by Double D Fab. Dan does some great work! The gauges themselves are iEquus gauges I got from O'Reilly auto parts.
