Really? I trip over more sh1t than that in my garage just trying to grab a fresh beer. You're welcome to some of my mess, it helps make it look like you're actually doing some work.

Jeep looks awesome. I didn't like the color choice up till I saw the assembled pic but it looks great and different.

This is messy for me.
Painting it this color started off as a joke with the wife. She called me a copy cat, cause her JK is the same color. So this was my revenge. I think she is just jealous mine has a real motor in it.

It turned out nice with all the black to offset what I refer to on my fiance's Jeep as "baby puke green"

I hate how messy my work area is. I just don't have it in me to keep it perfectly clean like you manage to, but now that I'm FINALLY about to buy my own place I'll just have my own stuff in the way and can keep it much more organized....I hope.

The last pic was with the 2" Tera Flex coils in the rear. I think Im going to stick with the stock coils instead, and bring the back down a little. I have 5" of bump with the stock coils. And these lift coils are jackin everything up.

Yeah but me trying to keep shit clean is a job in its self. I've been bustin hump all week on this thing, without cleaning anything till I was done. Its amazing how much work I can get done when I dont stop to sweep the floor up every ten minutes.

I was going to ask if you ended up using those coils you got from me. Again...I hate to be redundant, but this thing looks amazing!

I was just talking with bbaxj about a similar setup for a swing out tire carrier for myself. Would you be so kind to post a picture of the drivers rear corner? I'd like to see how you did the latch if you don't mind?

There are a few pics on the first page. Looks like he did it the same way I suggested, with a hitch pin style setup instead of bolts.....I knew I had seen that done somewhere
