Good idea. I'll keep that in mind. Looks good guys.

Front ARB and gears set:


Front end half way together:


Hydro hoses:


Ride hieght with MozMan's Tires and wheels. We had to limit the up travel alot for everything to fit. He has about 3" of up travel:


Front end done:



Rear cut, we are not happy with this at all. We are going to be re-cutting it before we leave on Saturday Morning. Hopefully we can get his wheels and tires mounted and cut it then.



Almost there...

I got both Rear Driveshafts built. The front ones are all cut apart, I need to try to get some machine work down on them tomarrow before I can put them together.

Steering works, still need to bleed it better. The brakes need to be bleed. Beadlocks mounted (if they come in tomarrow morning). Run a new Rear ARB line. Run a new Rear breather line. Hook up the gas tank filler neck. ReCut the rear corners. Torque everything and go wheeling! We have about 24 hours from now.

damn Kirby, you could walk straight under that tire with that flex.

I need to get a job where you work, you change that jeep more than I change my underwear.

Just kidding man, it looks awesome. Great work too...I will have to keep that shop in mind.
