Close, but no cigar. Adjustable rear lower SA's and a set of BPE's. The wheelbase is now set just over 107".




And oh yeah, new tires.

Those are Nice looking treads! I had a set of MTR's on the Dub before the BFG AT's. The new tread pattern is growing on me, I was really happy with the life I got out of the older style MTR's.

Did Discount match the exact price online, or the online price + shipping? I need to pick up new tires for my car this week, and possibly the JK wheels I have as well. I always go to discount.

I had a set of the older MTR's on my YJ. I didn't have any complaints with them either. Discount basically looked up the price online and matched it. What made it as cheap as onlinetires.com was the $80 dollar Goodyear rebate that covered UT sales tax.

Ski season is just about over here, as well as my left MCL. I am glad it still fits in the garage!

Moved the front axle forward another 1/2" and removed some extra sheet metal from inside the front wheelwells. A fresh coat of black undercoating to make it look more roomy than it actually is.


Enough room for now, but the front of the sliders may see some trimming in the future.

Will - Here are some pictures of the 3/8" bolts on the skidplate.

Took measurements for custom bumpstops today. Someone convince me to book a room for GSW this year.

The evap location looks great, and so does your tank tuck. I have been doing way to many house projects on the weekends. I hope to finish them up after work during the evenings this week so that I can dedicate some time to the Jeep. Your build is moving quick and looks great.
