Got a windshield banner sticker thing from my dad, nothing catchy, just the apex collision center logo for his shop...

I dropped the YJ off at Mr Gas Tank this morning to get the fuel leak dealt with. Normally I'd tackle it myself but seeing that it's currently -17 degrees outside, I decided to save myself the horror of lying in the driveway, covered in gas while freezing to death. Yes, I'm a wimp!

Put my ORO tails on this weekend. Next is some Bushwacker style flares to cover my tires, Tuffy center console, relocate my stereo and install the CB.

growing up

I posted this by itself before I saw this thread -
Comments, criticisms, thoughts?

Went from 33s to 36s this weekend, modified my rear fender openings,
but I think I am still going to have to add a little more lift.
Currently have 4" suspension, 1' body, and 1" shackle lift -
If it weren't for all the steering problems involved, I'd go SOA.
Anyhow, here's a few pics

Before


After


Time to cut


And now - Still have to install lights, works out well, I don't have any side markers since going LED in the rear

you get some style points for the creative use of the front flare on the rear of the jeep. good clean looking work.

That should keep any tailgaters away too! Have you tried to see how far you can throw mud yet?

I think they are from Off Your Rocker. I bought them second hand a few months back.

Put on a 3.5" lift

Well it wasn't just today...Frankly it wasn't today at all but this is the first real chance I've had to sit down

My son and I started last Fri and almost finished Sunday installing a Fabtech 3.5" kit. I have some wrench time but GOD those bolts were a b**** I soaked from Wednesday to Friday and still... The kit went on pretty good bolts aside. Broke a brake line, cut+re-flared, no biggie until I got to the last bolt and I mean the very last bolt that needed to be broke! I had to use the heat wrench and cut it off. BTW it was the right rear spring mount (no surprise). The only issue with that is it was Sunday and a 9/16x4" bolt that nobody carries that was open on Sunday Anyway long story longer ITS ON along with a set of Dunlop 32x11.50 mudders.

No, but I'll probably have to install temporary mud flaps when it's time for inspection
