Thank you! Looking at the zone 4.25" combo lift, truck light led headlights, 33s for my next major mods.

tsteb I got the cb wired up and tuned with a set meter. Got it down to 1.1. That was before 4th of July weekend, which our club went wheeling at uwharrie national forest. Had a blast. Next few upgrades are jk springs in the front, steering box skid, extended brake lines and front brake pads.

Installing the cb tomorrow and hopefully wire the kc lights on the bumper into the running lights. I hate electric stuff

So I'd say for looks and if you're not planning on hitting a tree or rock, take the Bushwackers, for durability (flexibility), take e.g. the Xenons.

tsteb I'm trying to get my hands on some zj v8 springs to try to level out the front. Right now I have a 2-1/2" difference between front and rear. I could fix this by taking the spacers out of the rear but then there is no extra clearance. Also, what is everyone's opinion on the bushwhacker flat flares?
06-22-2014 12:51 PM
Martin_N Nice job, really like it!

tsteb Next projects this weekend will be installing bushwacker flat flares and installing Uniden 505 xl CB radio with 3' black firestick antenna
06-18-2014 01:28 PM
tsteb Here are the updates from the last weekend.

Installed clear marker lenses and 3 hours later I tapped a tree and one lense exploded and the fender flare cracked pretty good. So I put the orange lenses back in the sides for now. I will be getting bushwacker flat flares later this week.

I also got a new to me front bumper off of craigslist



Installed rock sliders, finally





I also cut the person's front bumper who help me install all of the stuff on my rig

I don't have a link but it's simple spacers I got on amazon.com and then I got extended zone nitro shocks. Spacers costed 60 and shocks were like 180ish maybe? I got them off of their website. My uncle and I did it in his garage, he has a hydraulic lift in the garage so it made it easier. Want to say 8 hours total. Directions were horrible but it's not hard to do.

Bolts are long enough and go through the frame pretty deep. Also painted undercarriage with Rustoleum black, brush on. I'll post updated pictures later.
Awesome!

tsteb Getting tools for rock slider install. All I need now is a floor jack. Also ordering a cb radio, with a 3' firestick antenna. Going to mount on drivers side taillight after some research. Also I painted the rear bumper and tow hitch the other day and touched up the bed liner on the interior.

I am currently working with a guy who is building me a bumper and tire carrier. Trying to complete everything by the July 4th uwharrie wheeling trip. Pictures will be coming as progress is made!

tsteb Since the last time I've posted in this thread (kinda forgot about it) I've done a few things.

Painted flares
Cleaned up undercarriage
Cleaned inside frame
Added engo 9k winch
Cut stock bumper at 45 degree angle and painted that as well
Removed nerf bars because I got rock sliders, haven't mounted yet
Plastidipped my wheels

Here's how it looks right now
