Thanks.

Use good paint, good prep work, several light coats, you can wet sand between if you want. Polishing/rubbing compound on the clear and then wax to shine. Depends how nice you want it.

Thank you! It is a wonderful color. I get a lot of compliments on it.

Also here are some real wheeling pics.

GoldenSahara00 Tested suspension and steering travel and flexed it out, plus a quick photo shoot. Need to trim the back side of the rear wheel well a little, get an antirock in front, and that's pretty much it. I'm using these DeFenders travel space up pretty well, Idk how I am gona lower it much now at this point without adding bumpstops.

baby on the way, can't relo the gas tank yet... we'll be following yours closely Ryan!

I plan on trying to get 12" travel to work front and rear. I am gona keep the stock geometry though because IMO it's not that bad, I would like to ditch the track bar though in the rear...

I have the rokmen skid and will be doing a mod that will let me get a few more inches of stretch with the tank in the stock position for very cheap

Sadly I'm back at school, and start grad/doctorate classes this summer. So time for the jeep is pretty much gone. Might need a DD and put the jeep in the garage.

Thanks man! They are a really nice product and went together well. Great fit etc. I'm getting the suspension redone soon after the front axle gets finished. And by get done I mean I'm doing it lol.

GoldenSahara00 finished up yesterday.
08-20-2014 08:51 PM
GoldenSahara00 Progress.
08-20-2014 10:02 AM
GoldenSahara00 More.

GoldenSahara00 ...
08-04-2014 04:34 AM
GoldenSahara00 That's what I'm seein. There isn't a lot of room down there but yeah I expected a little better.
07-30-2014 06:11 AM
elclipo My buddy has those on a JK and they touch the springs on the very bottom coil. No binding but still touch. You would think they would be designed a bit better than that.
07-29-2014 09:41 PM
GoldenSahara00 Looks like it will just slide down but I'm gona grind them a little anyways. A friend warned me about this. Kinda disappointing considering I spent $70 on these.
