Good to go! Got the winch installed & did some cleanup from all the grinding dust that accumulated for the past 5 months. Here's a couple poser shots flexed on some big rocks in my yard.

It still sits a little high in the rear. Not going to do any more adjustments until I drive it a little & see if it settles.

Takes the place of tube fenders for protection. Nice of you to notice them, which have been on there for years but not notice all the fresh black paint.:miff:

Nice Jim!

Now, does it come with a warranty?

I have to see how in the hell you routed that exhaust cuz I couldn't see a straight line for more than 3" at a time in the front!

nice, but why does it look like the bottom of the front diff is like 8" off the ground

Yup, will be at OSTC. Mike, yes, we're gonna flex it a little at the mounds today if it doesn't rain. Lucas, it comes with a 2 year, unconditional warranty on all parts and labor & no deductable. I highly recommend the guys that did my build because I hear that now that they have done a jeep link setup, they are offering the conversions at a discounted rate. :tonka: We didn't end up running the exhaust around the front like we had discussed earlier.
Scooter built, actually it's closer to 7.998" off the ground. And Kelly, um, there's just not much to say about you.:miff:

because it needs 40's

we still have to get a picture with some bigger tires, it wasnt built for the 36's that are on there so it'll look a little tall until Jim decides to make the switch.

Naw, those were poser pics with kb8ymf's tires just to check out sizing. It needs a new transfer case before I do tires so nothing before next year. (unless someone slits my tires:tonka:)

Good luck Sunday

Did awesome! Got it flexed up pretty good without any problems. Didn't really take any pics. I know RenegadeII took quite a few. Here's the only poser I took.



I had a couple issues that were not related to the build. I discovered that as soon as my gas gage hits red.............



I am out of fuel.:stan3:

Also, I have had problems with np231's in the past and I have known that mine is on borrowed time. Well, it looks like I have a crack in it......... so it's time to order an Atlas.
