Sandblast and rustproofing the frame, putting a RE 5.5 long arm lift, fox 2.0 factory 8 way adjustable shox, Rokeman coil relocation, 1 in body lift daystar, 17x9 OMF beadlocks with scallops, 37 in Nitto mud grapplers, MORE bomb proof motor mounts, rebuilding the 6 speed transmission. That is the first phase to be finished with any luck by January. Then phase two

It has dana 44 with air lockers on already. Planning on replacing the axle shafts and upgrading them to something a little stronger but I am not going to replace them. Just finished grinding them smooth I also have an RE CV driveshaft direct bolt on as well. I am going to use onboard air and replace the factory air locker pumps.

Yes a very good thing. Hopefully start the rust coating tomorrow. Has been 12 degrees here the last few days I need it to get a little warmer so I can heat my garage up to at least 60.

I'm so tempted to paint mine satin black but the green/tan combo with green and tan seats I like too much. But on the black

Yes the frame satin black, the jeep is going to be a color I created. Candy apple orange crush. It is a mix between candy apple red and the orange crush.

Build is on hold. I fell on some black ice in my driveway and dislocated my elbow. I will post some more when I can work again.

How did you do that by just falling? Looks like you got hit with a baseball bat! Hope you get better soon!! And hope you're not left handed (I'm pretty sure that's the left arm).
