well got some good news and some bad news

bad news is i broke my control arm off today



found a pic of on the trail where i first bent the control arm


now for the good news. first, i am getting a welder for my birthday in like 2 weeks so the control arm bracket isnt that big of a deal to me anymore haha.

fixed my death wobble today so happy about that it has been a continuing problem for the past like 6 months

old tie rod end


new tie rod end


and then since my jeep is unmovable right now i figured i would do a bunch of small mod while she is garage wheelin. started off with some rock lights hopefully there will be some more little things that i do. any ideas?






honestly looks alot better in person these are cell phone pics, but i love them, great mod for sure

why'd you chop the fenders?! there is no need at 4.5 with 32s. i ran 33s and 4.5 with just some bumper and inner trimming. i dont think it looks good IMO. also, elaborate on the doors....
