That was one of my favorite pictures. I never lifted a tire, everything was stable, off camber was weird but it was never too bad.

I'll have to get a crazy picture, one guy in a ti was hanging right front tire about 4 feet. I took the same line with ease.

Definitely have more work I need done. Electric fan, zj radiator, and front bumper soon.

Very nice, is that coming down Cadillac hill with the switchback right behind the cameraman? Let me know how soon you want to start working on the fan/radiator/bumper. I'm ready to knock it out whenever ya give me the go ahead

Yeah, that's the spot. Coming up it would be fun.

I need to recoup the jeep fund a bit. Before I start more work. Ha. Hollisterroad.com makes a sweet fan control/relay assembly that one of the guys out there told me about. He said it wasn't too hard to wire up either. And its a little cheaper than the dccontrol one. Basically wire it on low with ignition. Then run the high side to a switch for crawling/traffic or pulling hills at slower speeds.

I finally replaced the starter in my civic. Its been giving me **** for a few months now. And replaced front pads and rotors.

Thought I spotted you but the grill is different and you haven't said anything about a tire carrier. Same rough stuff sticker placement though

Hold on haha. The more and more I look at the picture, the more I'm confused. It's different plates, but they have the front bumper cut like you, same rims (I think), same ruff stuff sticker spot. Same color. There definitely isn't many WJs around the area...

I dont think its him. Different wheels, different stickers, looks like that guy has shocks not coil overs, different rear fender mtnmarc has black on the back half of his rear fenders, different color cladding. Its close but i don't think its him, a nice wj either way. And those tires look like 33-35s maybe. Marc has 37s.

Yup that's me haha. So everything working well with the coilovers marc? I was hoping to be in the market for some right now but recently had surgery and don't get to go back to work until next year so they are kind of put on the backburner. I do need to get your final valving and spring rates on them though to make my life easier though. I'll be wheeling an overnight trip on the rubicon this Saturday if you are interested in joining.

How's this thing doing, I'm about to 1ton and coilovers, gathering parts starting Tuesday. Your build has been a great help. I know it's bad to ask but how much roughly did the axles swap, coilovers, and fab work run you?
