After some serious work today...The frame has been reassembled and married to the axle. I am going to have to extend the landing leg as the lift and tires have netted 8" of overall lift.

MikD No the porperty is in New Windsor, southwest of Newburgh. Its a small place but the terrain is varried and lets us create a lot of fun mildly challenging trails. Totals out to about 4 1/2 miles of trail so it takes several hours to get a group through.

The lift and shocks were bought during a sale for $490 (list was $1100) the skids were $500 (csn get them now much cheaper from eauto), the tires came from a forum member who was parting out his rig, 5 new 37's for $1000, and the bumper/carrier came from eauto for $500. There are other small items as well but they arent really needed so I don't count them as part of the build. Plenty of fun for the trails and decently armored for a reasonable amount of money. That being said you can do it for considerably less money if you do your homework, we've had guys run 37's with insane flex for just a few hundred dollars.
My gf is going to hate you . I'm living in Newburgh not far from Algonquin park... I'm assuming you guys are hitting trails on property going towards wall kill/new paltz area?

Where in Newburgh is your spot? I'm down in westchester where there is nowhere to go and test out my new jku but I'm in Newburgh almost every week.
