So first things first I took care of the front brakes and am now working on the brake line.. but that didn't stop me from going to the junkyard and getting some goodies hehe.. plans as now is a 4 inch lift and some 31s among other things but the thing I'm excited about it... I'm doing a wagoneer front swap.. I got the waggy nose for 20 bucks at the boneyard...

This is the plastic from a yj Stanford bumper I think it would look neat as a wind blocker on my roofrack like those yakima ones have.... The jeep logo is now painted white can't wait to install all my goodies!
