so far I have done a few small upgrades. I put 35s on it, cut the fenders, and redid a lot of the wiring. I had no break lights, license plate light, windshield wipers didn't work, and was missing a quarter window on the passenger front door. it already has a 4.5 in lift, with an upgraded radiator.

so I put some new leafs on with rubicon add-a-leafs, and adjusted the front spacers. having a roof rack built for me and a stinger, sliders, and rear bumper made as well. have an 8.25 im buying off a guy for 150. and then I still gotta do the hack and tap.

im glad I replaced the leafs. both pins were seared off lol. cant believe I made it through the 102 at evans and a lot more wheeling with them like that. im sure they have been seared for a while. lol. crazy.

also, I had custom u-bolts made at a nearby shop. gitts spring. they make them while you wait. and they give you hardened steel washers and extended nuts to go with it. only paid 34 bux.

Build is looking good man. How does it handle with the 4.5in and spacers? Does the steering wheel try and find center when you let it go? Mine's on a 4.5in RE lift and 2" spacers. My caster was all jacked up(even after I adjusted my UCA's) and it wouldn't drive straight for $#!7. Pulled out the spacers and it drives so much better. Needs to get better so I'm trying to diagnose a few things still.

I'm just south of Olympia. Just wanted to stop by, say hey, and pick your brain. Good luck with the build, brotha!
