The RC springs have about an inch or so of sag from hauling trailers and being mad from cheap steal.

Put the axle underneath it today and ran into the first problem, the UCA mounts are to far forward. I'll have to cut them off and turn them around.. In the morning lol

Well she's rolling again. Had to send the btf cover back. It was for a d44 not a d44a. Should have it tomorrow, hopefully before I take off for Panama City!
Got some new stickers and took the scenic rout home.

It'd be 10x's purdier if you got the Jeep driving towards the horizon. That would be an amazing shot

My thoughts exactly! I think Daytona is the only place you can drive on the beach.
