Nice 2 door! I like how you are keeping it simple. Just wondering but are you leaving the front bumper as is?

eh, i will be building or buying some sort of winch bumper eventually.

although the bumper that is on it now is pretty sturdy, its just not my style and i have no way to mount a winch to it

Looks great, but do the JK control arms give you any thing extra other then tire clearance?

I have 4 new zone hydro shocks for sale...PM for a price.

they are longer and offer a little more droop than the stock arms

got around to spraying to floorboards yesterday. i think it turned out alright, and i only used about a gallon and a half. so i still have a half gallon left to spray some other misc things (door jambs, rockers, fender flairs)

before, after a few painful hours of gutting and prepping the interior.


after.


stuff a little more shiny than the material im used to spraying. but i think ill be fine with it.



and some urban wheeling at the shop...lol

the bedliner looks great!
Just a question: The JK shocks and control arms, did they just bolt up? and how do the shocks feel? I'm about to install my RC lift, and I'm afraid I will wanna switch out the shocks.

Come on EILEEN!

the rear shocks just bolt up, but the fronts you need to either press in a bar pin or use a BPE. they feel a little stiff but otherwise ride fine. and the JK control arms just bolt up.
