I havent done the math yet to see how many actual miles 220 on the odo represents but Im not too worried about it. I'll change the gear when I upgrade the rear axle and put the 4.56s in. Hopefully by next summer

solman I had a t case drop (about 3/4") But then I put in a 1.5" MML and now I only have about a 1/4" T case drop. I haven't re geared yet. Still rockin the stock 3.07s. I'm hoping to upgrade to a Dana 44 or ever the ford 8.8 so I don't want to put any money into the Dana 35. The gas mileage sucks but its not my daily driver so I don't really care.

Phrankoff Solman, in the 2nd/3rd pictures you posted. What is the total extent of the modifications necessary of this lift setup ?

IE: did you regear? did you need t-case drop or MML? how are the MPGs with the 33s?

solman The hood decals are next. They are very old and thin though. The other side only says NGLER. Im slowly getting it.

As for emptying every pocket, that is the case every time I start a vehicle project.
Here is a ford ranger I built a few years back.

The 3.25" kit is the 2.5" springs and .75" spacers. I only put the spacers in the front. I was afraid the back would sit too much higher then the front if I put them in.

Put my lift on a couple weeks ago

Just getting around to putting a few pics up.
1st pic - the day I got it. 31x10.5s with a 2" BB
2nd pic - 2 weeks later 33x12.50s with 2"BB
3rd pic - 33x12.50s with 2"BB and 1.25" BL
4th pic - 33x12.50s with 3.25" RC lift and 1.25" BL

Ive only had the jeep since the end of April so I still have a very long to do list. Im planning on painting it rescue green this winter when I get the time.
