Yes he does, but he's a lazy ass and does get pics.
Just needs to get the tube to drill and tap for the steering. Put rear shocks on, and bed back on, and get the brakes working correctly. He took the 3" body lift off and put a 1" on, put the bumper back on. There isn't really too much left to do, he is just slacking now. I dont have any pics though.

i made 4" blocks for the rear, I really didnt want blocks but i need to get this thing back on the road so blocks it is. ran into alot of stupid problems for a while. brake rotor was rubbing knuckle on one side so i thought maybe it was because i didnt have the dust shields, so i machined a spacer to take place of the shield. the problem was the guy i bought the axle from had one unit bearing from a 99+ model on one side which uses different rotors. also one of the ball joints wouldn't tighten into the knuckle because the stud would spin but both sides looked the same and the other side was fine. so I measured them with the calipers to find a shorter stud on one side. the weird thing is at autozone they kept bringing the same one out and finally found one that was right and they all had the same boxes and part numbers. another dumb thing i did was put in tie rod flip inserts to find the tie rod wouldnt clear the springs so i had to get another set of knuckles and clean them all up and paint them again. so basiclly im cursed with having to do everything at least 5 times before its done. lol
ill try and quit being lazy a take a few pics.

made the steering using dodge ram rod ends because they have the same stud but a bigger more common 3/4 16 thread. made tie rod and drag link out of 1 1/8" .25 wall dom and tapped the ends for tie rods and used jamb nuts. picked up some 35" mtr's and im painting some freebie rims right now to put them on truck. just need to drill out ranger pitman arm to put jeep tapered tierod sleeve in and put the drag link and the tires on and shes done for this build session.

heres an update of the new shoes, only have one rim painted so far but ill finish the rest tomorrow and or saturday. got the mtrs off craigslist and paid more than i wanted to for them but i was impatient and i really wanted the "old" mtrs again. and they are have between 19-20 32nds tread on them. got the rims as freebies from wifes dad. had some corrosion bubbling on them so i put alot of elbow grease in sanding them down. primed and painted them with rustoleum "profesional" enamel spray paint. they are 15x8 and they looked pretty offset on his jeep.

He has a stock tail shaft/ output on the transmission. He wants to do a 4.0L swap but from what I got, he wants to get his GMC in better drive-ability.
