Time for the lift!

picked up some Rustys 4.5" coils and got to work
-made the bastard pack
-removed the sway bars
-made my BPE's and installed my JK rubicon shocks
-did a tc drop (more info on this later)




dont mind the exhaust, it has since been replaced


some flex shots right after. the rear leafs have softened up after driving some the the backend now flexes better than in the pictures






full compression

i picked up a set of 31/10.5/16 mud terrains and a set of 4 16's off of a JK along with a set of wheel adapters to run the 5x5.5 bolt pattern.

also i trimmed the front fender near the bumper to clean up the look some

i just picked up a 91 2 door 5spd xj. except i had to do a lot more engine work because the person who had it before decided to not maintain it AT ALL.

I only got a 3" Rusty's lift though, i was going for the 4.5" but my dad talked me out of it...might still get some 1.5" shackles and spacers though.

Looks good!
