New! (Kinda)

Hey All,

While I've browsed WranglerForums before, I just realized tonight that I didn't have an account here! So technically I'm new to the site, but I've been on various forums since I started JK shopping in '07. I've been home sick with a cold for several days and have ran out of posts to read on all the other forums I'm located in NorCal between the SF Bay Area and Sacramento.

I've now got 108K miles and i'm in for "build #3".

My first built was an RK 3.5" Lift & 35's at 55K miles. My 2nd build was at 105K early this year, rebuilding my whole front end due to bad death wobble. Build #3 was inspired by my trip this summer thru the Rubicon.

Here's what she looked like in July:

Here's what she has now for Mods:

> Rock Krawler 3.5" Mid-Arm Flex Lift Kit
> Bilstien 5100 Shocks
> GoodYear MTR/Kevlar 35x12.5x17 (2nd Set)
> Procomp 152 Steel Wheels, 17x8 3.75" Backspacing
> PSC Brawler Lite front Bumper
> Currie CurrectLync Front steering w/Drag Link Flip
> Synergy Grade 8 Hardware Kit
> Synergy Upper Track Bar Brace
> ORH Top
> 12V Guy Switch Panel
> Smitty Built Center Console
> MasterCraft Grab Handles
> cooltech Towbar Lighting
> Towbar
> Artec Front Axle Truss
> Reid High Steer Knuckles
> Synergy Ball Joints

In progress:

> PSC Evap Skid
> PSC Brawler Sliders
> PSC Crusher Corners (Mod'd with Hinge Delete)
> PSC Rear Bumper/Tire Carrier
> PSC Narrow Front Fenders
> PSC Standard Rear Fenders
> XRC10 Winch
> Rigid D2 Driving Fogs
> Rigid E10 Flood
> Bink's Fab Custom Fold-Down Tailgate

Known items to deal with:
> Steering Box (leaking)
> Skidplates (Synergy?)

Here are some progress photos of recent updates:

Corner's getting the Hinge Delete:
