My Lifted LJ

So I finally got my LJ lifted. 3.5" RE Super-Flex Short Arm Kit with the quick disconnects, SYE & CV DS, upper and lower control arms, steering stabilizer, adjustable track bar, and got five new 33"x12.50"x15" BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires. Here's a few pics. Ready for Yello Jacket next weekend. I hope. So much more to do still. Lockers, gears, bumpers, winch, more armor. And the list goes on. Lol.

Okay. So what's next? I'm thinking Lockers and Gears. ARB's and 4.10's. Or should I replace that twisted front bumper, and put a winch on it? A little help would be appreciated. Still so much to do, and the wallets getting thin. Lol.

Yeah. I'm being a masochist and forcing myself to wait until Friday. Even though I'm only 30 minutes to the S.B.N.F.
What is wrong with us?

Nice build Rob! Wheeling will be much more fun with more ground clearance and wheels!

Do you have skid protection underneath? That's what I would recommend before you break something else.

Thanks. Had 4Wheel Parts do it. My normal tech at the dealer was afraid of the bent lower control arm brackets. They did a great job. After a couple of ordering issues. Not that I can't do the work, but time constraints, and the fact that I can afford to, makes it easier to farm it out. Lol.

You know it! And it wasn't cheap. I basically destroyed the suspension on a night run at Calico. To stubborn to strap or winch, I powered through everything. Broke my rear drive shaft, rear shocks, muffler and tailpipe, tweaked both bumpers, and bent my lower control arm brackets. But it was a great weekend, and a good excuse to upgrade. Lol. but it's kept me off the trail for a month now, and I'm so ready to wheel and flex her.
