Jeep looks good. I envy the rear shocks, I should have thought a few things threw better before I did my awesome monstaliner.
Have you seen hd offroads no lift shackle relo? He just released them.

Looks good! I dig the stance with a little boost out back.

Obligatory flex pics are required now, though.

What weeder said^^^^. Check NAXJA for the no lift relocations. There is a lot of talk about them there.

Stupid update but I ordered a set of hatch struts or whatever they are called. Not having any sucks. The metal hatch is heavy! Also, I took a hammer to my bent wheel and rounded it back out. Drives smoother on the street now

Had a lot of fun wheeling at Crozet yesterday. Destroyed my header panel and I'm fairly sure I need a u-joint somewhere.

Played on the RTI ramp





Ouch...





Followed a 'yota...



And some vids....
