Looks like your jeep is coming along. Will look nice with those 35s, sure won't be getting 18mpg anymore though.

Thread derail:
I take it you're a PJ?

I was getting twelve till I cleaned the throttle body and ran a lil sea foam and premium threw it. Didn't think it would make much difference. Boy was I wrong lol.

Future PJ. Waiting on some legal issues to be resolve

Everything's welded in. There is not much to weld to.. If I had it to do over I would extend the side pieces a couple inches further down the frame rail but I think it's plenty strong enough. I guess we'll see the first time I'm stuck!

All that's left to do is trim a lil bit off the back of the bumper and cut the holes where the fair lead goes but it'll have to wait till tomorrow.

Mounted and wired up:

I don't know how we'll they would slide with the steps sticking out, but I plan to cut them off and make some real sliders.

Got some new U joints for front drive shaft and adjusted pinion angle. Finally I can have 4wd back after riding around w/out a front drive shaft for the last year.

Went out behind the house and rode a lil bit till I had to go get some gas.

There's thousands of acres behind my house of power lines. Huge hills too. I'll take some pics next time I'm out.
