Shakedown run is gonna be the 6th. Planning on hitting up Tuttle Creek since it has plenty of easy stuff I can check my clearances and travel on.

For the record I miss AZ wheeling. Old video of me letting a buddy try out my YJ:

Thats a nice yj! That line looked fun, he definitely had some pucker moments. Now I wanna see a wj do that line, im interested to see if the longer wheel base would keep all 4s on the ground or at least closer.

Good question.

I never was able to run over that side of the climb and not lift a tire at least once.

Got my butt in the garage this evening. Mounted up my lower front coil retainers, and am playing around with spacers. I think I'm going to run 3/4"ers...maybe.

Also, measuring for limiting straps. Looks like roughly 22" in the rear should work. Depending on where I mount it I could run anything from ~20-26". Gonna measure the front after dinner.

Just a water based duct sealer. Flexible, sandable, paintable. Takes a day or two to cure depending on how thick you go.
No kidding? I never thought about using that stuff. Then again, it makes sense! I've had my hands dipped in that goop more than once. Fun to play with. Horrible to remove from arm hair once it's dry.

Spent some more time driving today.

Cruising down the highway this evening @70 a guy cut me off going about 30. Cars on both sides and no where to go, almost got to test the new bumpers.. For the record the brakes lock up great. Was able to get slowed, but not by much. Thankfully the couple cars behind me's brakes worked also...

Gonna pull the covers and check the gears this week, I've almost got 500 miles on them.

Sliders got in today as well.

Wow, dude. Your dub is growing fast! I'm still waiting for my bumper to get here. Protofab is apparently really backed up. I'm interested to see how you like the way those sliders mount up.

Yeah, mine took almost 6 weeks, so don't feel too bad.

As far as the sliders, they are designed to mount on the factory frame rails, I'm expecting to have to modify the bracket slightly to work with the frame stiffeners from my Clayton kit. Specifically the angled bracket on the back frame mount you can see in the second picture. That angle is going to have to go away.

Sliders are the best mod for dubs. I banged mine up pretty good and i had 35's and 6.5" lift too.

Looks good as always
