Yeah I've seen the safe t caps around, my brother's old 1999 had such bad frame rot, he had to get rid of it because it was so bad, and me and my father are going to get some steel and when I come back from college in May we are going to weld the steel onto the frame, after cutting out the rotted section of course

While showing support for my sister's fundraiser for JDRF at Nassau coliseum to watch the islanders play, had to take a quick photo.
From left to right is mine, my father's, and my friend's jeeps.
My dad's is a 2012 with a 2.5 inch lift on 33's and my friend's is a 2007 with no lift on 35's but he's having a 2.5 inch installed next week.

Haven't posted in a long time, lots of changes from the last post.
3 inch Zone springs in the front with a small coil spacer to make the lift more leveled.

Had the frame rot repaired, used the Safe-T-Caps piece for the entire side from the front body mount to the rear trailing arm.

305/70 r16 Procomp Xterrain mud terrain tires (33's) after selling the 31's for $575 and picking up this set for $550 including 1.25 inch spidertrax wheel spacers.

Finally installed the rear trac bar relocation bracket and got a metalcloak front adjustable trac bar

Just a few pics from my most recent wheeling trip in Rausch Creek, PA. Not the first time I've been there, went in the summer with the jeep still on the 31's and frame rot.
