I'm really hoping that I get what I owe at least.
I'll buy your half doors

It may be totaled, but If the frame and the main tub are ok buy it back (cheap) from insurance, repair and keep or sell once back together.

Paranoid Did some work underneath today.

Much needed too. Car has been a DD for the last 10 years. I want it to last another 10 so I POR'd the external frame, where I could easily reach. I used Eastwoods internal frame coating too.

Got new pads & rotor while I was at it too, just in time. Onto the front end.

vanillathrilla Anyone interested in two moderately low tread 33x12.50x15 MTR/K's for a trailer or anything? Tread wear is not the same on each, unfortunately, but I'm sure someone can use them. The sidewalls are virtually untouched

I got it from a local shop called RPM FAB. Don is the owner, good guy. I got mine for 500 cause he wanted a tj to mock one up on for his new line. He does great custom work.

The only additional part I ordered to go with the Zone lift kit was an adjustable track bar. That's not a necessity either, I bought it on the advice of others.
The whole kit went in smooth as heck. I have no vibrations, my 33/12.5/R15s don't rub and so far everythings great. knock on wood.
good luck with your install.
Hardest part is not mixing up bolts/nuts that you need to reuse or mixing up part bags. All though the part bags are labeled to make that unlikely.

DmnSlyr Well not today but last weekend installed some fun cheap lights. Led rings in the lights can be 8 different colors. Pretty cool for a poor college kid
