I order a GENRIGHT bumper and Currie anti-rock from my previous project and never used them. Everything was gravy until it came time to remove the power steering pump skid. The installing shop installed a square nut with wielding wire!
Today I removed:
-front bumper
-front sway bar
-JKS discos
-Warn power steering pump skid

If it seems like I am moving fast, I am. I have a ton of parts from my other build that I have lying around. Since my Gen-right bumper is off getting powder coated, i figure it was a great chance to install the anti-rock. I'm move than sure the sway bar isn't set up correctly but I'll take care of it this weekend.

PSD cage

In December I flopped and immediately purchased a PSD cage. The poor cage has been idle in my drive way for months while I decide which rig to use. After deciding to use project unicorn i order the seat belt lugs. The entire cage mod is quite cumbersome.......

Still working on a copy of projects using mods from a previous jeep.

This weekend drilled the seatbelt lugs and prepared the cage for install and powder coating.

I also went to Jeeperformance in Yucipa California and talked over the plan for the rock jock 44.
