Nice build man I just read through all 13 pages haha. Couple questions regarding your bb. Do you have extended bump stops and longer shocks?

Thanks man! She's far from done but i've got a good start for sure! As far as bump stops go yes i did extend them.

On the rear i cut a block of wood to two inches from my dads wood shop, i then bought longer bolts at ace and bolted up the old bumpstops to the wood. Basically just making a spacer. On the front i jb welded hockey pucks to the springs perches, that lasted for about a year and when the jb weld broke the pucks escaped. So i resorted to chop off my fenders and have more up travel.

The shocks i got are extended and they came with the lift kit. It was just a simple amazon 2" spacer kit with shocks, was like $180. It's the cheepest new bb+shock kit you can get pretty much. Hope that helps

So the other day I was searching through my local craiglist to see what I could see, and I found a guy with some 96 zj black leather seats. The best thing about these said seats is that he didn't want anything for them! So guess who has new (to me) black seats in his jeep?

My old torn seats. It's a bad picture, but if you can see the tears in the drivers seat, and the passenger front has an even bigger tear in the same place.





And newish ones





So yeah! Pretty happy to have some better seats in, especially for nothing but the gas it took to go get them.

Soon man, soon, it'll probably be springtime, I gotta finish the lift and then change my tcase chain. It's gonna be a shock wheeling as I'll have a higher cog and a locked front, I should be able to do a lot more though

Well I'm a little bit of a slow worker, the rear is all taken apart and I'm currently changing the bushings in my control arms (new bushings just arrived today, only reason I took it apart yesterday was because it was my only off day.) I should have the rear on the ground sunday and have the front done next wednesday assuming the front suspension comes in by then.

I forgot about this trip, this is a video of a trip I took with a few nissan guys last fall. It was a chill ride and nothing to crazy. But still fun, I tested the exhaust snorkel and it worked great. You can see my jeep at 2:21
