Where did that front bumper set up come from? I need to "redo" the front bumper on mine and anything steel is expensive...

Also did you do the Long arm or the X-series?

New wheels! And finally figured out my death wobble. I have literally no bushings in my upper control arms.

Thats a good deal... I got the Ultra Badlanders for mine. Got them 5x4.5 thinking I was going for an older grand at the time but have 5x5 to 4.5 1.25" adapters for them. I was going to space them any way so it works well.

That looks awesome... When you painted your grill did you put anything behind it or just let over spray get on the radiator? ANd if you did put something behind it how did you get it there?

Got to splurge alittle bit today. Added some more stuff to the pile of jeep parts I need to install and bought a new radiator and all new ball joints off RockAuto.

Oh and for anybody who cares I graduated from EMT school also!

Nice looking Jeep. What did you use to paint the cladding? What did you take the DC driveshaft out of? How does the RC lift drive? What shocks are you running?

Thank ya! The cladding was painted with ACE brand rustoleum black flat. The double cardon came out of 2003 over land but can be found in alot of diff jeeps. Rough country lifts are **** lol and the shocks that came with the lift. Im getting ready to upgrade to bilsteins here pretty soon.
