I took that picture before I got the track bar bracket on, but that is how it sits. It is pretty level, but the rear is just a little higher than the front so I'm going to go down a notch on my shackles to help level it out even more. Since the front springs are used they are nice and broke in, so when the rear springs break in too it should be just about perfect.

By far the easiest lift install I have ever done on a Jeep, things actually went really well. The track bar bolt lined up perfectly!

Got the new LCAs in, cut the old bolts out and have new grade 8s in place. Started working on the transfer case drop and broke one of the bolts so now I'll have to drill it out I guess, I don't know what else to do.

Finished drilling the old bolt out and re-tapped it. To get the other stud out we had to weld a piece of steel to it and hit it with a hammer. Got the 1" spacer on and took the Jeep to get pizza. Needs an alignment really bad but it drives!

Only thing left to do is get the rear brake line on and knock the broken upper shock bolts out to drop in my new ones.

Sold my stock wheels and tires today, they were on craigslist for less than a day. Took that money and put it towards a new set of Soft 8s, they should be here by Monday.



Also added school stickers!

Cragars came in today, getting them mounted tomorrow so I can give my roommate his wheels back.

And I'm rocking a JF sticker again

I usually like the clean look of XJs, but I figure if I end up not liking them I can just take them off.
