Excellent I hope it works out for all of you. I can understand your desire to bring your rigs out with ya' and be able to have some fun on the trails while you are here enjoying the race.

I'm working on the Film Transportation Crew again and will more than likely be doing some sort of work with the LCQ too.

Last year I drove ~90 miles of the race track ahead of everybody else (in my Jeep) on race day while transporting my camaraman. Talk about a blast! I'm sure there were some folks wondering "what the heck is this knucklehead doing on the track on race day? AND, he's in first place!"

The amazing frame brackets that have a weld plate to completely enclose the framerail.
Do tell? Can you post (or PM me) the cost on those brackets? I could use 2 of those brackets on the right (left and right side or course) for a rear 4 link. They look similar to the polyperformance brackets but I like the full wrap idea.

These are prototypes and are for the front, and will not work on the rear. The rears each need an upper, and they have to be triangulated. We have no yet designed rear brackets but that may happen soon.

Of course. The one w/ the upper mount looks similar to the Polyperf brackets like I mentioned. Upper would need to be turned in a bit more and the lower maybe out just a bit, but they look really close. Keep me in mind if something like that gets designed for the rear. I'd like to hear a price on them if they happen.

We finished it up today, threw it on my trailer, hauled it back up home to NY and took it for a few hot laps around town.

The front soaks up everything perfectly, no noise, harshness or loose feeling. Before, it was harsh, made a ton of noise and felt like the axle was going to fall out from under it. All the brake dive from the shackle reversal is gone too. Overall it feels like a new truck. It's hard to explain how well it works right out of the box. It rides smoother than both of our Cherokees and smoother than any TJ I've ever ridden in.

All that's left now is Shawn has to take it all apart and paint it tomorrow while I'm out fishing, then during the week hook up the ARB compressor, reconnect the downpipe to the catalytic converter, and do an aligment. We might take it out in the woods next weekend.

Not even 10 minutes after backing it off the trailer and driving it around, he was already talking about linking up the rear in the spring

Really do not want to be rude but I will ask anyway.
How much for parts?

Very nice, my mind is thinking now. I've been wanting an older model for a tear up toy and keep my 2000 for the beach and daily driving. Inspirational is all I can say.

The first drive felt awesome despite no alignment and no exhaust. I've got to get that all buttoned up this week. I spent all day with the help of a friend taking it apart and painting everything.

This is my short todo list:
-remove my posilock
-wire arb compressor
-fix exhaust
-fill the front axle
-alignment
-bleed brakes again
-get 6lug rear shafts and have the rotors drilled

Tj/xj shafts may help I'll keep my eyes open. Where do you keep breaking the shafts?
I was drinking it yesterday thanks!

I guess he never made a website. Try getting a hold of him through Facebook if that's what you found.

That is not what is posted. hillsidecustom.com does not come up with anythhng.

This might be their website yunit.net/hillside.
Those are two different websites.

That's the same guy. He spends his time cutting out parts and building rigs not playing with silly web sites. Contact info is there, give the number a call.
