Rear long arms installed on my stock axle. I found out this is the old version of IRO's stuff and I have to redesign the upper control arm mount on the axle but that's easy. I'll post pics when it's not raining lol

I now have some extra stuff for sale if anyone is interested. flowmaster super 10 muffler (1 year old), IRO A-arm spacer with hardware, IRO fixed lower control arms 18 5/8" eye to eye and an IRO TC drop kit with all hardware.

pretty loud outside the cab but not horrible inside. there is a YouTube video of a red WJ with a super 10 that you can watch.

decided to start on my rear fenders today. don't mind the dent, it was there before but it made the paint flake more. I'm going to paint the fenders after I'm done.
I went with the cut, fold and weld method.
right now I've only cut one fender and will start welding it tomorrow. there is plenty of room for 37's now. I still need to trim the bumper to match.

unseated a rear coil for the first time. I'm for sure going to need coil retainers.

Thanks, Will!
Now I just need to find some bigger rocks to flex out on
I still had plenty to go in the front and rear, just no more rock.
