Trip to Rausch made me decide on my next few purchases:

everyone filled up their tires in like 2 minutes except me who used a compressor and 20 minutes later i caught up..
decided to mount bracket for CO2:




and today decided to mount my hi-lift on the stock cross rail to give me some more room inside for next trip...this cost ~30$ for anyone thats interested and it was simple:




next things to install are:
IRO a-arm spacer that i scored a deal with from a guy on here
Teraflex Rear lower adjustables that i also got a deal on over at MC
and JKS tie rod and drag link...

also plan on putting an aussie up front but that will come when i get some mo moneys...


heres where i want my WJ to be at within the next 2 years:

very simple, take off the plastic bumper and take out the foam behind it and just mark and drill two holes in the bumper and use washers underneath the bumper to somewhat make them sturdy, although mine still shake a tad i think there no way of avoiding that..does that make sense lol i should have taken pictures when i did it

other people have recomended putting a steel bar underneath to tie them together and spread out the load more on the plastic (instead of just washers)... not sure if that would help with the shaking or not?
