There is no rear track bar, that's why no one says anything about it.

Makes sense to me! What is the A-frame like piece that is attached to the rear axle at two places and the body at one place, I have no idea what that is. Thanks!

that is your rear upper control arm. It keeps axle centered side to side and also prevents it from wrapping.

Good job on all the other mods looks really good.

Now get to wrenching!!

LOL, I know, taking my time! Thanks! I will post pics when the lift is done. My wife is thinking about adding a 2" BB on top of this lift. I don't know, we'll see after she drives it with this lift.

Got the OME lift on this afternoon. I was able to swap out the springs and isolators in 3 hrs, with hand tools, two jack stands, and two bottle jacks.

Looks real good. I'm really liking the cladding, door handles, and hatch trim you've upgraded. I was going to just paint mine with bed liner spray, but now I'm thinking about looking for something else.

I have also done a Limited interior swap. It definitely makes the WJ a lot more comfortable to drive. Those cloth seats were so uncomfortable!

Thanks! Yeah, at the time I did the leather seat install, I had a 9 yr old, and she still was spilling things. The leather seats made cleanup so much easier!

Tell me about it, I have a 10 year old and a 5 year old. My seats are in great condition, the same cannot be said of my carpet. I really should get around to replacing it.

I'm in awe of the work you've done!
too bad most are not maintained and rust buckets

I like this Limaredo edition great thread great thread

98jgc, sorry for the disappointment. This has been a lot longer process then I wanted or expected. I'm prepping the axles for the 4WD conversion now, so, it shouldn't be too much longer until I get that done.

Thanks for the likes, I promise it should be done by the end of the year.

This is looking amazing. Makes me want to swap out my laredo cladding for some home painted limited trim! Looks great with the graphite!
