Yup! My garage is 77" and my Jeep in 76 1/2, but the angle that it goes in creates rub. So If I air way down I can sneak her in... I haven't tried with the top(hard) off yet.. I'm thinking that will do the trick.

It looks like I can get it through the door. For now. I am one roof rack away from being garage blocked!

It’s out of the garage. Family photo. First drive, brake leak and something is scraping on left turns. Brake line? Don’t know.

Assuming you put extended brake lines on? Check connections. Common spot is cross threaded unions at the manifold that bolts to rear axle.

As for the rubbing, do you have signs of paint/powdercoat wear on front lower control arms? Check driveline clearances, of all things around them (evap boxes, exhaust, skids, etc).

Get the front axle off the ground and have someone cycle steering.

I found it. Front left line. At the new extension. Also, not sure how it happened I had the wrong bolt in the front track bar at the frame side. Letzroll found that and that fixed my neutral stability steering problem. The noise was the rear brake line extension bumping on the rear sway bar. Just pushed it in some. All good.

Looking good AZ..
It's hard to tell from the pic, is she sagging in the rear?

I don't think so. She is level and a bit high in the back. My driveway is sloped. May be a visual issue. If you look at photos above these, in the garage, you can see that she sits pretty level.

I'm off Thursday Friday and Saturday. I'm down for an offroad excursion. Weekday would be better, less traffic on popular trails.

I do love that Anvil color. I run the 3.5” Game Changer and absolutely love it. My tip: don’t over think the suspension install. Run the MC recommended settings and your geometry should be near perfect. Also, order up a front driveshaft or at minimum exhaust spacers now.

Have not stopped. Just got busy with work. Installed a plate delete and from stolen ideas on this forum made a plate adapter with a light. Also installed a s-pod. Winch next and trying to figure out which winch mount plate to use with the Mopar bumper.

Jeep with no name build

This weekend I got the Warn 8S installed. Not without some thoughtful cutting and grinding. But it is in. I also pulled off the slot inserts from the grille. When it hits 117 here in Phoenix impediment to airflow is a non starter. Thanks to a forum member Hardrockrubi, I think now known as Overland. He has dissected the Hardrock, 10th Anniversary bumper winch install from all angles. Without his many postings I probably would be in a corner muttering about failure. Hat tip sir! And if ever near Mesa, AZ I owe you lunch.

Picked up some enhanced Mopar rails. Someone asked if I was building a Recon version. Without realizing I guess I am. Not going to get there. But I just like the mods I am doing.

Looking good so far, mind sharing what you paid for those sliders?

They are on. Easy switch. Bonus is the stock sliders are 77”. These are 75”. No trim required.
