the steering is on, the brake lines should be here friday and I just ordered 24" collapsed & 36" extended shocks from Summit-procomp ES9000 for $39.95 each. This will be off the trailer and on the trails next week.

stock gears for now, going to 4.88's or 4.56's when I get new tires. The axles in my pole barn are r/dana60 & f/d44 out of a 3/4 ford have 5.13's

Took it out for a shake down run in the backyard, rear axle droops alot, installed limiting straps. Front fenders need trimmed. Suspension flexes like mad. At our club's January food drive, we kept spitting out the rear coils, now my wife is making rear spacers that taper down 4" lower than the stock bumpstops. This should keep them in check.
Next we'll be getting a winch.

yeah, we both want to build one, she's doing well with getting used to the sway of it, but when she's used to it watch out. We're still in the air about who's driving at the dog party

Not bad, but waaaaay to tall IMHO. If you want to run that big of tires you should just trim the crap out of the fenders. I can't imagine where the COG on that thing is.

I'm running 36's on about 7.5" of lift. And could easily clear 38's.

ran the entire jeep "blessing" course, the ridgelines out back, washouts etc. yes she leans but haven't had the tip sensation yet if that is what you're implying. At this ride height, those 36's still rub he front wheel wells at compression, thus trimming them next.
Roadhouse- yours looks great, it inspired me to do mine also; lets trail them together and compare notes.
