i run a turn down and melted my ABS wires, easy fix but if that happened with a turndown i can only imagine what no turn down would do.

I wonder if mine is already melted cause I've been running it like this for a year now. I'll have to check it out tomorrow.

Just got the the sliders primed and one coat of black so far. It's fun working at Kevin's shop with all the air tools and the huge car lift.

Got the sliders painted and installed. Bryant welded them on for me instead of bolting them on. Trimmed up the ARB to line up with the trimmed fenders. And moved the rear axle over to the passenger side because the track bar was at the wrong length so it was pushing the body over to the passenger side to far.

Primed sliders.


Installed.



Look at all that crap in the garage, that' why I have to park outside and none of it's mine.



ARB trimmed, for whatever reason I can't get it to mount flush with the body so oh well.


And some of Bryant's Jeep flexing just for fun. The tire on the lift can go 40" in the air before any of the others start to come up.





Oh yeah and I found where I'm getting some cladding.

Info on the cladding! Also, I cant get my ARB to flush mount either. It wants to hit the 5.9 grill before it comes up all the way. gay
