I havent got a chance to test the rear all that much, but as soon as my rear bumper is done and we mount the resi... its on..hahahha..




Ok we decided where to put the resi. We checked different ways and ended up with this.




I liked the way this looked but the hose would hit when the tire goes up.

Hey man ive been folllowing your build for a while, even if you dont update very much Anyways, ive been looking at repainting my zj. currently factory black, but has alot of imperfections, i am gonna do some body work, and most importantly i rolled it today, and need a new door. so JY door+ZJ+your paint advice should= sexyness. how has your job held up? any tips, things you would do different? Also, how durable is it? Because i sometimes wheel on tight trails an itd be cool if the paint wasnt super easy to scratch. Basically, what are pros and cons of your paint job VS roll-on or rattle can flat black. I know prep is key, i have patience when it comes to my jeep and will try and do the best job possible

Why not drill a hole and run the resi's into the engine bay?

For the paint i love it, now that it is black i would love to paint it white or a dark gray, i love white jeeps...

Just make sure to wet sand everything sand sand sand..hahaha...get a good primer, i used a single stage paint which means that it has the clear mixed into the paint. Its cheaper than buying paint+clear.

It has held up fine, no chipping or anything like that just take your time and dont rush it.

True, but they're definitely out of harm's way there.

Any update on the stiffeners? I gotta do my HP30 swap soon, and it'd be nice to get them knocked out at the same time.
