I'll get right on that.

The whole thing will probably be black before long, but I'm thinking I'll save that till next winter or something.

If you wanna tow around the rolling chassis with fixed suspension then sure. I imagine I could have the tub sitting on it by then so I can have somewhere to sit while I make engine noises and pretend to be driving.

Usually after a few beers nothing wrong with that kid of drinking and driving

The latest: Got it to roller status and snapped a few comparison pics with the stocker on 30s







4.5" lift, 103" wheelbase, 22" belly....should work nicely. It's got new body mounts now and the suspension is finish welded on the frame, gotta add 2 tiny gussets and cut off the front coil buckets then the TJ gets disabled and I'll swap the body over.

Can't say I've gotten that desperate yet....probably cuz the TJ still drives for now and I still have 2 other lifted trucks to play with while I finish it.

Yes, or at least approximate ride height. I'll fine tune it a bit once I get the body and steering and stuff in place. It's sitting at 4.5" suspension lift in the pics, plus of course another 5" or so higher from the bigger tires.
