On Saturday I picked up my lift from Prowler, a fellow board member, and then his buddy hooked me up with some TJ flares (thanks again guys).

Then on Sunday i took the old angle grinder and cleaned everything up for the lift and repainted everything. Then proceeded to rip off the yj flares in preperation for the tj flares going on. And I sprayed the crap out of all the bolts on the bottom of the jeep with pb blaster in preperation for the lift going on.

I'll be starting it some night this week and working on it bit by bit

late last night I decided to swap out my 31"Mtr's for some Les Schwab 33"ers. Did I mention that we did it by hand with just a Hi Lift, dish soap and prybars? It looks great except for the rear with my ultra sweet RE XD %$#ed springs....

Wasn't today but I put my 8.8 in saturday afternoon which was alot easier than I thought it would be. We were able to re-use the stock Exploder spring perches without any problems, the only thing we had to weld was new shcok mounts and hook up the brakes. The one thing that went smoothly on the Jeep was the axle swap of all things after I gathered all the parts which was the worst part. I changed the oil sometime last week, and I drove it.

Just did a couple of little things I've been putting off.

Finally decided to ditch my carpet, it was in such good shape when I bought the Jeep I hated to throw it out. After being rained on a couple times and a nice large stain from an ATF spill on the passenger side, I figured it was time to call it quits.

On a plus note, it just gives me more motivation to finally Herculine the inside of it. Also, since the carpet was gone, I needed to re-route the sub and amp wires (since the installers just ran them under the carpet right in the middle of the floor ) and got them loomed up and out of the way.

I'll post up a few pics.
