yep its done!

just got home from driving and man its great! rides stiffer, got some slight vibes but it is so much better than stock!

it needs 33s but the 30s get me around. my jeep is also about 2" higher than my friends 95 which is lifted 3".

heres some pics

when we got there, it was getting the u-joint change



custom shackles







on the ground, this is how much clearance the tires have got





ill get better pictures tomorrow.

Aircruiser, it looks great man. Congrats

I had another lovely incident with my Jeep tonight. Broke the ****ing hood release cable when I got home (12:30 a.m.) What makes it twice as lovely is that I was trying to open the hood because the hose coming from the top of the radiator that goes to the overflow popped off. So it's pissing coolant and I can't get to it tonight.

So just when I thought I was done making minor repairs... I now get to find a way to get the hood open and then clamp the hose. And after that chore is done, I get to replace the hood release cable

On todays to-do list... 1) Go to dealership and pay $65 for a stupid new hood release cable because I don't have time to wait for one ordered online. Damn coolant! 2) Get the friggin hood open by taking out headlight assembly 3)Fix leaking coolant hose 4)Replace cable assembly and lube all moving parts

5) Wait for Aircruiser to post some pictures of that beast in the daylight
