Thats going to be a great looking YJ when its all done, I agree on the gun metal grey. Let us know if you need anything from Genright, we set up direct with them. We can get you anything you need.

Good luck with the build, let us know if you need anything.

(Back in the Afghan for now but the show goes on)

I am going with a Gloss Metallic Gray for the body and the cage, links, bumpers, and tire carrier are going to get powder coated black or matte black. Should be going to paint this or next week.

As for the Genright parts I appreciate the offer however I have a direct line with them on this project which nets me a great deal or I would have used you guys.

Axle housing came back from DTS this week and waiting on soem custom length moser axles.

Bought Raceline Monster beadlocks and 40' Nitto Mud Grapplers x5 as well so they should ship out tomorrow.

My latest issue is should I build the 6.0 block or cam and Supercharge the 5.3 with stock internals?

You're not alone, I think Tony's used to people "spending a few bucks" with him. I have $5000 in parts from Genright sitting in my shop now. Well some of that is the 4 kings, but a shotload of money nonetheless.

Couldn't have done it without you. At least for the price he got it all for that's for sure! Thanks again.
