Did a little trail clean up at Uwharrie today for the monthly work day. Picture of the crew and some shots on the poser rock.

Well I went and made a big hole in my jeep. God it is empty, any chance of changing my mind?



Left over parts



Followed WJCHRIS' thread so not going to redo the build instructions

Here is the porn, look at that pretty diff







What do you all think, my axle was hitting the tank after I stretched the wheelbase a little so I had to do it.

Hey man I saw on your gas tank lift pics (which looks awesome by the way) that you have air bags installed in the rear springs! How hard/easy was that to do? How effective? Thanks!

Pretty easy to install. They work really well when I have a trailer o. It or have the cargo packed full. There is a kit for the wj but if you are lifted you have to buy it in pieces and call the company to find out what bags will fit with the lift. They size them by length and diameter.

I tow a good bit as well too, I think they would be worth the investment! I need too see how well the OME Heavy Springs do first. If I find that I need them still I will have to get in contact with the manufacture to ask them about the aftermarket springs!

Thanks for the reply!

Had my knuckles rotated and my spring pads flattened out on my front axle. Added 4.5" IRO springs and Bilstein shocks, 5100s on the front and 5125s on the rear.

You have one of my favorite WJ's out there. It's a great piece of mechanical engineering and fabrication work. What's the difference between the 5100's and the 5125's? I have 5100's front and rear.

Yes, it snows in Texas.
