Got the front bumper mounted and one side trimmed. Also started rebuilding the front hubs. I'll take some pics tomorrow, didn't get too long to work on it, long day at work.

I think I'm going to trim it forward some more.



Decided to use a 2"Johnny joint on one end of my track bar, waiting for it to come in, hence the ratchet straps centering the axle.

Hah. Yeah, that's how Reid Racing ships them painted. Too lazy to change it.

I've got one of those sitting on the sawhorses too, lifted it up on them today. Its freakin heavy.

Mikes a really nice guy but he was running way behind on orders so be prepared for a wait. Hopefully he found some more help.

Only reason I havnt pulled the trigger is I'm worried about the weight. With the 4.0 might not be fun... How much you think it weighs? I've looked into building my own but materials here jn SoCal and the work I'd put in plus the finished product almost worth just buyin the protofab

Loving the jeep though, great color

Its hard to tell if its really heavy or just really akward, but I'd guess close to 150-175lbs. I think the front and rear were a little over 320lbs combined shipping weight.

I had trouble lifting it onto my sawhorses by myself.
