Picked up some 33x12.50 Baja Claws in great shape last Tuesday for $350.
On friday I got the first box of parts for my FST steering. brackets, hardware, and joints. Getting the links on Tuesday.
Going to start on the axle swap and lift tomorrow, hopefully get the steering in Tuesday after it arrives, then work out bumpstops and hopefully get to wheel it

Got the front end lifted today and installed the crossover steering and over-the-axle track bar from Froehlich Suspension Tech. Tomorrow I gotta align the steering, then finally do a test drive

All around seems like the lift came out to around 2.5-3 inches, good height for 33s. Now I need bumpstops and shocks

to be honest with you this jeep would appeal to me so much more without all the monster green paint.

the steering design looks good though

Looks nice... The wheels and tires really fill out the wheelwells, but they don't look cramped.

It drives even better than it looks. Only downfall I have noticed about heims in the steering with no dampener is on long drives the road feedback starts to kill my forearms. I can live with that for the awesome road feel and toughness
