Got robbed!



jk, was getting 33's mounted

installed spacers while I waited



how it sits right now, on jackstands but this is ride height




can barely turn the front, I think I will take off 1" all the way around the fender and do some more BFH work. its a good thing i did this because when I pulled the splash guards out, the fenders were CAKED SOLID with mud! I dont mud and the rig looks to never have been offroaded before so I dont know where it came from. weird.



the rear ill just need to trim the rocker area a bit. the tire just about touches now, I had 1" of clearance before so if I get 1" of clearance again, ill be happy. no need to trim the whole thing. maybe the bumper...



cant wait to do some cutting and drive her!

Finished the Iro 3.5 in lift today

Front measures 3.75 even with the winch plate and winch
Rear measures 3.1ish (front v8 saggy springs with a lot of weight in the back)
Will replace them with the new springs IRO messed up my order on monday and tues moren alignment

I was suprised when I drove it around town today up to 45mph and no vibrations (won't try 55 till alignment)
Also my steering wheel is upside down and I can't turn right all the way alignment will fix the steering wheel, but also not being able to turn all the way right?

you sure your steering wheel isnt turned a full rotation or something? also, alignment isnt that hard, set your toe then center your steering wheel. caster is easy with the cam bolts

When I drive straight the steering wheel is literally up side down I know you just loosen the drag link and turn it, but the alignment guys will do that anyway

It does seem like its a full turn off because even turned to the left all the way the steering wheel feels like it wants to keep turning but cant.

I presume fixing the steering wheel would give me the full turn back?

yea it sounds like your steering wheel is off a rotation

jump under your rig and see how your pitman arm looks with your wheels straight. it should be straight front and back

it might, wouldnt hurt to atleast halfass center it before you get it aligned since its just 2 15" nuts and turn the sleeve. you are going to need to extend your drag link to compensate for the lift

All I see on CL is jk moabs. and I understand why people see getting rid of them. Theyre ugly without that dip like tj ones have

Just finished changing my spark plugs and wires and my engine developed a tick near the throttle body. Related to engine rpm, and its pretty loud. Wasn't there before. Anybody have any ideas? Its sitting with the battery disconnected for now.

I've heard older injectors get a pretty bad tick to them.

I cut my rear rocker panel straight up with that line behind the door. Just notched that little piece off and it was fine.
