yup, now i have RE 4.5" front and rear with a skyjacker long arm kit that i have frankensteined in.

so I may have pulled the trigger on something(s) i wasnt ready for but i got a really good deal on them and could not pass it up. Now before i get hate messages saying that my axles cant handle them ....i know....btut like i said i couldnt pass it up. heres what i got:




new tires, 37x12.50 15LT
I plan on keeping the true trac in the front and not locking it up. high stregth axle shafts up front. WJ brake upgrade. and then detroit the rear with a Zj disc brake upgrade.

oh and regear to 4.88s. the tires arent bad with 4.10s but they definitly need to be changed to 4.88.

I just got back my jeep from a local guy down in gainsville that does great work. He made me a tummy tuck that would work with my skyjacker LA bracket. He also mounted my BTF LCA brackets on the front axle. all for a decent price. Im really stoked about it, since i gained 4" NOT inscluding the skyjacker bracket. heres some pics.

before:


after:








the skid is reinforced with 2 angle irons going across and the actual skid is 1/4" thick. my rear pinion angle had to go way up which kinda sucks but thats the name of the game. also whenever i got the jeep back it was making some racket from the rear, i thought it was the rear axle but it wasnt. i adjusted the pinion angle and was still there just much less. I figured out that it is my driveshaft going bad. I never had it rebuilt when it got cut down so i ordered some spicer joints and the centering ball yoke ($87.05 shipped, no local shops had the parts)and will be replacing it very soon.

so i rebuilt my rear driveshaft and now its smooth. I have the upper arms on order to get rid of the clanking. I need a front track bar asap, awaiting funds since my current track bar doesnt want to flex as much as the jeep wants it to. I replaced my shock with some longer ones and this is the outcome of them(a lot more flex):


pic thanks to ben.

i havent installed the rear shocks since i need to bumpstop it correctly so i dont blow them out.

I finished a few projects lately. I should have taken more pictures but forgot like usual. The first project was a cowl intake. I really didnt feel safe with my K&N open element filter, I was always worrying about sucking water in. I also did not want to spend $400 or whatever on a ARB snorkel, so I went the cowl intake route to get some fresh air also. heres some pics(ill take some more of the inside of the cowl when I take it off next.



I used a buick ari box and got some flex tubing from the auto parts store. Also i got a reducer deal from home depot to mate the box to my stock intake tubing. You can also see in the pic i made a little bracket to support the airbox more.
