On my third WJ now. Started with a blue 2000 4.slo, traded it in on the white 2002 in the pic below, then sold that to get a car (horrible horrible decision) then sold the car and picked up my current Overland. Skip to the bottom of the first post for a link to the start of the Overland build.

cool. looks good, get some tires and rims

MACHJGC 08-09-2009 09:14 AM

I could be wrong, but I think that spacers are supposed to go on the top of the spring (your rear is on the bottom)

-Shoey- 08-09-2009 10:22 AM

Nah, the rear is 'sposed to be on the bottem.

MACHJGC 08-09-2009 01:01 PM

I beg to differ, but I actually had the RE spacer kit and the instructions specifically said to install on top with the radius of the spacer facing down.

:nono: Nah, the instructions specifically stated the front goes on top and the rear goes on the bottom. Plus it was the only logical place for it once I had the springs out.

The tires I have were brand new when I bought it. I started my college career a little late so, I am 27 but a full time college student on a tight budget. Once these tires are shot, I will be looking at cragers and bigger tires. Probably 31's. :thumbsup:

my apologies...must have been made differently than my old spacers. My RE ones told and even showed to put on top of springs.

gatorayde 08-09-2009 10:00 PM

It doesn't matter for the rear spacers. Some kits say bottom, others say top, you pick.

Looking for advise on painting my plastics. I was thinking black, but wonder how that would look against the blue. I was also thinking a lighter color like silver. What do you guys think. Probably looking at doing this in the next couple of weeks.

I like black cladding for red and black; but I think silver would indeed look better with blue. I just painted my plastics black today. Make sure you use Krylon Fusion paint. Stuff kicks arse. Virtually no surface prep and dries in an hour. I only used 3.5 cans on both bumpers, rockers, and cladding so I'll probably also do the door handles and strip-O-plastic on the liftgate.

Ok, I've been playing around in photoshop a little bit...what do you think?

Silver plastics

WSPJeep 08-13-2009 01:33 PM

Black plastics all the way.

Ricochet88 08-13-2009 01:37 PM

black ftw!!

rugermack 08-13-2009 02:20 PM

Black, but different rims make a difference.
