Looks like a damn decent platform. For a 1990, the suspension seems to not have the saggy azz that is typical for the older models

Thanks.
The paint is a roll on truck bed liner, with a "chrome" paint out of a rattle can for the stripe. the whole thing with tape, plastic drop cloths and paint, cost me about $60.00. Not too bad and if any one dings it with their door in a parking lot, not harm...to the jeep that is. they however, will need some new door paint.

just ordered my Rough Country 6.5 Long Arm lift. Let's see how long it takes to arrive. No hurry since i cant start working on it until September, but it will be nice to have all the parts waiting for me. Next up on the ordering list is exhaust from header back.
