Lift finally done.....pic inside, more pics coming...

Two weeks and two days in the making numerous trips to the hardware/parts store, lots of sweat and some blood shed, and a fair share of profanity its finally done!

The install list:

Full Traction 3" lift
FT adj front track bar
Teraflex rear adj track bar
4 Skyjacker hydros
4 33x12.50 Firestone destination at's
4 Crager soft 8's

Heres the teaser shot my parents are on their way home from canada with th digital camera and should be home tomorrow, so sorry for the cell phone pic.



She rides great, better than stock I think. Still need to wash and wax and paint the fenders, and get a new speedo gear. And heres the best part......no vibes yet...up to about 50ish, and yes I installed the tcase spacers that came with the kit.

Jeep looks awesome. Off topic, but that fiberglass insulation in the ceiling looks black. If it is moldy you could be inhaling dangerous mold spores. Sorry I am an insulation contractor...I notice stupid stuff like that. Good job, can't wait for the high res. pics.

You're going to love the FT kit, it's amazing how much of a difference it makes compared to stock suspension bits off-road! The jeep looks beautiful! Makes me wish mine was black (or red )!

Oh, and +1 on having that insulation checked out, or at least having it covered up properly. Could be a health hazard waiting to happen.

+3 on the jeep, lookin good!

+3 on the insulation too, you don't want to get a black mold infection going, that stuff SUCKS big time, my little bro got it and ended up bed ridden for 4 months. Do yourself a favor, get some sheetrock, some respirators, a couple buddies and then rock & firetape that garage ASAP. If you notice yourself having any weird symptoms get to the dr quick.

You don't want to end up sitting in the doctor's office for regular visits breathing in that crap that makes you cough up flem. My dad had to do that and was horribly weak due to breathing difficulties after he got an infection.

Not trying to jump to conclusions, but if it is mold, you need to have it removed rather than just cover it up and the substrate behind it needs to be neutralized. Not a DIY job, but a lot of insurance companies will cover the expense. The paper on drywall is a sufficient food source for the mold to continue to grow and you will only mask the problem temporarily.

Haha yeah, I took my time. I did most of it myself and would only have an hour or two to work on it some nights, plus i came across some delays like a broken bolt and such, and I wanted to get it done right.
