WOW!! I just drove the beast home! I hadnt had a chance to drive it at all since the lift was installed

It about handles like a lumberwagon It wanders quite a bit, as I was expecting, and seems to like to grab any ruts in the road So all in all, its exactly like I thought it would be! The suspension feels stiff, but smooth on road use...

I just gotta get a new front driveshaft, make a few adjustments, and locktite a few bolts

I do believe that fender flares and mudflaps are in my near future I can never seem to find any cool Jeep ones tho might have to see what I can find online I guess....

On a positive note, my 9 year old daughter can get in and out by herself LOL!! I almost need help!! HAHA!!!

Give your suspension a chance to settle in, once my front springs settled, it rides much much smoother now. The wandering is as expected with a lifted jeep. Your jeep would look really good with color matching iceland flares

Icelandoffroad.com and bushwacker make cool ZJ flares.

I wouldn't run mudflaps unless you were required to by law.

Buddy in the blue suit indeed! He is a great mechanic I can hold my own, but woulda had a hard time doing it all by myself

Is it normal to want to drive it all the time?

Im still waiting to get a driveshaft

My buddy in the blue suit is off moose hunting, and there are still a few things that I need his help with I hope he gets his moose really soon

I need to get the guy a super great gift for all the help he has given me Any ideas what I should get him?

If he's married you could get him a gift card for a really nice resturant? Or tools everyone loves getting tools as a gift but then he might expect you want him to do more work for you!

that heim on your steering is almost maxed out at ride height.... that bad... way way too much lift for that steering system. It leaves you with almost no down travel as the passenger side tire droops.
