The LJ is coming along!
First of all, the used Warn 8274 will be getting a brand new cable, along with a new 4.5-hp. motor. Based on its reputation, it should give me many, many
years of trouble-free service.
The skid plate & long arm brackets are now powdercoated & installed, and the control arms are 75% painted (stealthy black). The stuff is looking much better now! I'll be finishing up the control arms tomorrow night, with the exception of the upper fronts, which will be painted after the steering/track bar set-up is designed & built.
I started test-fitting the Rokmen aluminum corner armor, along with the AEV rear flares. The flares will be painted the same silver body color (hood & front fenders are going into the body shop tomorrow to start being cut in). We were strategizing (I'm copywriting that word...LOL) on how to trim the corners to accommodate the flare without a gap at the transition to the body. We think we have a solution. More to come.
