yep, I have yet to hit a single peice of sheetmetal while driving this thing around, and I've got this thing turning to where it's hitting the steering stops on the knuckles

Thanks for the comments everyone! I'm putting in another 10 hour day today, between this thing and fixing my WJ it's been a long one haha.

well, the jeep has been in my garage since yesterday afternoon.

i have removed the ABS module, and factory proporp valve, and installing a aftermarket one.

my flaring tools have been fighting me, so ate my pride and bought some premade lines, and bent then my self.

there is still one line that is custom, so that one still has to made, dispite the problems we have been having.
