got everything for the 4 link tacked into place. used PVC pipe to mock up the links and it works great for testing purposes. ride height in pic is about 3"s higher than it will be due to jeep sitting on jacks.

well i had 2 days off of work and i worked on the jeep non stop!! made good progress. build the links out of 2"x.250 tubing with 1 1/4" heims, 4 plug welds per tube insert, welded everything up solid, mounted a 2000k lb rear suck down winch, and a center bump stop....pretty much all thats left for the rear is a few cage braces, and mount fuel cell....then on to the front

its 1am so the pics are kinda dark will get better ones in day light
