AP - Good to hear about the TnT LA. I've been pestering them about why the kit isn't on their website since I found out about this kit.

I'm so jealous of both of those rigs...

Haha Robert, yeah I called them and told them I was installing a ZJ longarm kit, their response was "your one of the lucky ones huh?" lol!

Brian, prices are still pretty dang low!

So today I want to burn those suckers home, install the rear crossmember and longarms, remove the 44a and mock install the 14 bolt. Figure out coil bucket location and see if I'm going to have to do anything with the gas tank

Thanks! I have a picture that sums up todays work:



Yanked everything out from under the jeep (including front crossmember and arms), and started prepping and painting. I went over everything with a wire wheel to get rid of the surface rust, cleaned it all up with brake clean and got to painting. Everything's cleaned, but only the skid and rear crossmember are painted. More paint tomorrow, then possibly the final install of the front crossmember. all the control arms are going to be yellow and the axles are going to be black with red diff cover/knuckles/etc at the request of Andy. He may also want the skid yellow, don't know yet, I have the 14 bolt sitting on the garage floor waiting for me to start the shave, soon enough!
