First picture in a couple of days. I picked up the PAC springs yesterday morning. 150/200 up front and 100/175 in the back. There is about 3/4" preload on the springs right now, so they have to get maybe another inch. A bit more in front to level it out. Sitting at 21" under the frame, less under control arm brackets that hang below.

What's left:
final adjust link lengths and tighten jam nuts
final install front locker, shafts, & lockouts (hubs are on and rebuilt enough to roll it around).
plumb brake system (should have enough parts, at least for basic setup)
finish install of dash
install trans shifter
install trans temp sensor for gauge
plumb trans cooler
seat belts
spare tire tie downs
wire everything except engine, which is done besides diagnostic link and MIL
mount rear brake lights
install license plate
exhaust from collector back
fill radiator
peel out
flex test

Plan is to hit it hard all day tomorrow with JeepM715, and then make use of WhiteRhino's hoist to finish off the day.

Stop by tomorrow afternoon if you're off and wanting to say hey.
