Picked up from Richie late last night , by the time I got home it was dark. So just drove in my long driveway, but played a little today. Drives down the road great, had it 60-70 felt real good. and that was with frt sway bar unhooked, I have small dirt bike trac in my frt yard so was able to climb some dirt piles. Deffenetly showd that the frt needs some more trimming, I had told Rich not to worry about that, I would to save a few bucks. so now my work begins, rubs fire wall and in frt of tire also. All and all verry verry pleased at this point. Climbed piles in any direction and ARB worked great, even got a little crazy on dirt bike track and cought the most air I ever got with zj and it seemed to soak it up great So going to body shop tomarow and doing some major triming, try to move the area under the pedals back 2" and plate back in. then cut some more off frt and going to wrap with sheetmetal to make it smooth even if it did hit. If I cut the front as far as I would like to, would have to move both batteries to rear, and dont want to do that, Like I said befor, drove down the road great, better on 4ds than it did with old suspension and 36s . Great job Richie , couldnt be more pleased . I will post up a performance update after cutting the body, so can get a little more agresive, dont want to cut up tires

When going the fender mods do you mind showing the process. Just curious which way you'll go about it.

I did take pics of frt wleel opening cutting, thruought the project, just need to figure out how to post or size my pics. Well as you can see from above pics, this will crawl almost any thing, and the rocks it wouldnt climb it just pushed. It performed great off road, better than I thought possible Had no issues and wheeled it all day, when we got home I aired up tires backed off trailer and drove it to town prefomed awsome thanks again Richie
