8.5" up front and 6.5" out back! NO slip yoke just custom lengthed driveshaft out back


Going to be getting front bumper soon but may end up putting this one back on my red XJ. IDK though may build that one to be more pretty.

Well got a new rear hatch today at a local JY and got it on. Looks a little better then plexi and duck tape



And then pick me up some Jeep luggage for those out of town nights




Got BPE coming tomorrow from http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_xtr...liminator.html for the front shocks, what a pita that's been. Also ordered up the Rock Krawler Track bar and bracket set up from http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3AIT&viewitem= so I can be done messing with my junk that's on there now.

Well got some bumpstops up front now. Could of went another inch or so but I guess 6" will do. Rather simple install, just hope it pays off in the end.

Also for mental note sake, if you going to lift your jeep to high for a floor jack then buy a damn HI-Lift! Any one have one for sale?

Got my track bar on Friday and put it on today finally. Damn it's cold out. Very happy with it, can tell the difference for sure.

Are you intentionally only running one upper arm in the front? How much total bumpstop did you add in the front...looks like 5 or 6 inches? Not sure I'm a fan of how you have your Jeep supported, but looks good other than that.

Yes one upper that's the 3 link Rock Krawler set up, for outstanding articulation. 6" bumpstop

and I'm the one under my jeep so if I trust it then that is that matters

thanks I trying to get it built to be worth something out on the trail, just need to do something about that pretty thirty up front yet

Ahh, didn't see that you were running longarms...that explains it. Thought you were running SA's with only one upper so I had to ask.

Sold the red Jeep the other day. $1000 cash gone with in 5 hrs of posting it on GL. So not swapping over to it, girl like some of the cage rigs up at the Dog Party so she wants me to go ahead and put a cage on the Jeep now

So got a couple things today....

New center caps for the rims so I can be like "Bling! Bling Dogg!"


And got me a Currie EZ Deflator with the gift card to Summit that I won at the Dog Party

Yeah I think I would maybe change the way you support the Jeep, even if its you under it, Im sure yout girl wouldnt be happy to hear that you got crushed. Spend $60 bucks and get some 8x8 Timber and make some jack supports, those concret blocks could crumble apart.

Fender trim is a must But going to be losing the fenders and making up tube fenders off of the cage.
