YAY!! Its pretty much DONE!

The Iron Rock Offroad OTK steering kit came today....FINALLY!!!! I had to work, but my buddy Lee had the day off so he installed it for me. I am very thankful for all his help!!

The Yeep is off for a wheel alignment now.

All that is left is to make the front driveshaft work!! WOOT!!!! Then go play!!

Gratuitous pix!!




The harware looks good to me so far!



Finished product!!



My 4 year old boy and my Yeep.



Next to the 33's




Thanks for the patience of the members of this board who had to suffer through some dumb questions, and a few rants
