you wont have to wait long...
went to lane auto today. Picked up some energy suspension bumpstops, stainless brake lines, 5 heim joints, a u joint for an intermediate shaft, shock tabs, fittings, new seats, new rci 5pt harnesses, warn lockouts, and then some other little odds and ends.

work done:
fitted the springs, got the skidplate design down and figured out where to put holes.
bunch of other little stuff accomplished, like putting the dash back together.

Any updates? It's looking pretty sweet! I like the skid plate. Looks really good.


On a side note...Hurry up and get that FORD out of the way I'm itching to get my jeep in there
