    Yesterday I got the uppers set up and burned in along with the lowers. Drilled out my rotors for the new 6 lug pattern. Marcus stopped by too. Ended up scoring his old driveshaft from when he had the 8.8 and 7Ē stretch. Should fit nice

    Today I finished mounting my upper coil perch. I think it turned out pretty good. I didnít wanna go through the hassle of frenching the perch. I may regret it cause itís putting me about an 1.5Ē over where I was if my calculations are right. But I did finally get a Tire mounted after doing some trimming

    White TJ build

    Finally got a post worthy update! Sheís on all four red labels. Brakes working driveshafts front and rear and sitting pretty good! Big thanks to nick @volt for the hook up on the stock rear springs and even got me level with some old 3.5Ē rubicon express springs. Still got several more items to address. Cut skid plate for front drive shaft. Find out where the trans is leaking and figure what the heck Iím doing with rear shocks. Here some pics from the last couple days of work. Overall Iím pretty happy where sheís sittin now

    2.5Ē vs stock rear spring

    2.5 RC vs 3.5Ērubicon front spring. Surprised the 2.5 was a lil taller but the rubicon coil is thicker

    Stance with 1.25Ē wheel spacers on the back

    Did a several small things this weekend. Replaced a 7.5 year old optima. Painted my front fender cut outs. Fixed a vacuum leak. Adjusted the ďTV cableĒ or throttle valve for the transmission cause it was shifting rough. Still may need to tweak it some. Added the trans cooler. Removed the rear bumper and Reese hitch. Started cutting my rear corner armor out. Got the rear pass side done and took several hot laps around the neighborhood lol. Iím sure they love me since I still donít have a muffler on

    Started test fitting the rear armor. Looks like itís gonna be a nice cut for the Tire. Only thing I donít like bout these motobilt corners is even tho I bought the full blank set, there is a nice gap between the armor and the stock jeep cutout. So, Iím thinking about cutting out a piece and welding it in to fill the gap. Any thoughts or suggestions on that?
    See the gap between steel and stock cutout...

    Plan to cut out a shape like this and add a 90* piece to go under too

    Itís been raining all day so I figured Iíd get some work done on the rear armor so I cut out that piece and welded it in. Needs a lil bondo to fill a couple small holes but looks better than I thought it would. Anyone know of a cheap place to get these corners painted white. Greenwood to Columbia because Iím working out of our office down there now. Donít need anything fancy just want it to kinda match. Also ordered some max-bilt Trail tail lights this weekend too.
