Awesome picture diary! Loved the look of the beefy mods. Now you're almost ready to put some body rash on that pretty thing!

Drag link and track bar are not at the same angle. Looks like they are close to the same length though.

It probably won't be too noticable.

Looks like crap.

How come you didn't find a quality shop to do the work?

I wouldn't pay him for those sloppy welds.

If this guy can find a closer drag link track bar angle I would like to see it.


See you this afternoon Mike, we'll get those brakes bled and the Flowmaster on and go for a ride. We might even do the toe in and tighten the tie rod

Toe in would be good

I've seen Adams TJ, his setup up front is damn close. Don't tell him I said that tho':tonka:

if you look closely there are no springs in the up close steering pics... I would be willing to bet there is no weight on the front suspension therefor throwing it off a little need to see a pic of it sitting on its tires all on its own.


Either way damn cool, I don't know what Michigan will do when Roadhouse actually has a wheeler I think the internet will crash from lack of use. Congrats
