So today I added some new tires... 32x11.50x12 Kumho KL71's. It's the second set I've owned and for a M/T tires on the road they are super quite!! More quite than the RT/S i just took off! Also today me and Al trimmed up the fender flares... I think it looks a little better! This saturday I have my OME springs coming in... I can't wait to get rid of the ProCrap leafs!! I'm like a lil kid i can't wait!
**I tired to attempt to be a photographer today.. i dont think it worked out to swell!! Enjoy!

I figured I'd update my build...

Yesterday I put in the new rough country shocks in hopes of the procomp riding better.... wow!! A HUGE difference in just the shocks!! It rides a little worse than stock. I was pretty happy with that! But I couldn't wait for my OME sprigns to come, after reading all the other users posting how good they are!

Well today I got my OME springs!! I was super excited to plop them in. I took the back tires off, took off all the bolts and took out one leaf spring... I was about to put the bushing in the OME leafs until i found out that...... YOU NEED OME BUSHINGS!! AHHHHH I was so freakin upset when i found this out. Not only did i have to order the bushings, but i had to put all the other stuff back together and drop 100 bucks on OME bushings at least they are yellow haha! Not a good day.



Once I got it back home I decided if I can't work on it, I'll wash it up! Here are some pictures:




This made my feel a little better... until... i found a crap load of scratch and dings. But then i realized it's not a show stopper it's a JEEP

Thanks!!

Anyways update today... I just ripped everything out of the jeep, roll bar seats seat belts ect... I picked up some herculiner. I started on just the little bed area. i think i applied it to thick cause it's smooth in some spots. So for the rest of the stuff i'm going to run it a bit thiner and see what happends. I'm going to use a palm sander for the bigger spots and a sand blaster for some of the little hard to get spots. Should be fun. I no wofficaly hate torx bolts!!!
