Drove my jeep. It felt so good. Up to the point were I broke the ratchet strap holding my battery.

Got the 8.8 and long arms bolted up today





Some long lowers, I ended up with them right at ~45". Had to do some finesse work with the floorpan and a little on the framerails. But go big or go home right?
Gotta mount the shocks, springs (which are surprising easy to put in/out now haha), bleed the brakes and bolt the driveshaft up tomorrow.

Today's Fixing truck is almost done. So far : custom rear sway bar bracket fixed, transmission pump seal, gasket, and O-ring, adjusted front and rear bands, transmission filter, new transmission oil pan and gasket, new oil ATF+4 , oil change on engine, re-installed transmission, new custom transmission cooler lines, and new battery installed. all that's left to do is plug custom exhaust back and re-install 2 drive-shafts. and its all ready

Can try doing it like mine. My setup allows me to run short travel shocks while still flexing like Arnold lol.

I got in a frenzy with the Advanced Auto discount codes. Front brakes- rotors, calipers, pads and hoses.

I also ordered a music deck to replace the defunked Infinity HU but now there are issues whether Advanced actually has that specific unit in inventory. None of the local stores can find it in their stock, even though the system shows several of them available.

Online shopping for the regular brake parts went all OK with no issue. As for oddball electronics, well that may be another matter.

Just removed the 2 roof rack crossbars. I think I like the look but I'm not quite sure yet.
