Default getting there

Dirty part done, now the fun, putting back together.
Added 3/16 plate supports to frame, cleaning and removing any brackets that are not used, stripping and painting. Added carbon fiber to dash, just the sticky stuff but looks good.

Default Springs?

Thanks guys!
Getting closer. On vacation this week and painting grill tomorrow. Hopefully that means together this week.
Springs, going to change out springs. I have the yj conversion shackle kit and wondering what is working for people.
I have a spring over and looking like 4 inches of lift.
I am sure link and coil is the way to go, but for now its going to be leafs.

Default Done? Is it ever?

Done to this point. Runs excellent, shifts great, not sure what I think of welded diffs but will give it a shot.
Still need a windshield, rear shocks and speakers.
Future plans, new leafs, and fix anything that doesn't work after maiden voyage.
Picture will come soon, just wont let me load them right now.

Default Pictures

Finally,
I used my old camera to take these. For some reason the pics from this weekend outside, driving it wont load onto this site. They are from my new camera so assuming it is how it files it. Any way I will post action shot after R&v this fall.
