lol if i had all the parts layed out and ready to assemble...i could stretch the wheelbase and swap axles in less than a week!! its actually been pretty easy so far...i would say the hardest part has been assembling the beadlocks....very time consuming

i went with the blue torch fab comp cuts...they were about $25 more than others but the light holes are already cut out and the notching for the tailgate so i figured it was worth it...save me some time

well its been a little bit since i updated everyone....i removed the 2" body lift, removed the 2.5" pro comp springs and replaced them with factory springs, installed the front and rear 538 gears, and made a rear driveshaft so i could move the jeep out of the garage and test the suspension. it is SO MUCH MORE STABLE now that i lowered it down!!

Looks good!
Are running a traction/antiwrap bar in the rear?
If so how about some pictures of it?
It is pretty cool you got that much more stretch using YJ springs.
Maybe I will ditch my XJ springs.
