Put a new ECM in today and she fired right up! Took it down to my pasture to waste some time and played in the creek for a minute and drove up a dirt pile





Had my LJ down there to so I took a shot of them together. For reference the Wrangler has 4.5" lift and 35s

$50 says 10*. 20* is pretty damn angled for a 3-link.

Looks great man. Anything you wish you did differently so far?

Wish I would have d/c the battery before welding lol, I think that's what killed the ecm. Everything seems to be working so far, time will tell.

Figured the easiest way to measure for the front driveshaft was to do some lawn crawling

Made my front driveshaft today, cut down a stock CJ one that I had. It's a dinky little thing but will work for now. Took it down to my pasture and did some creek crawlin and it did pretty good. I'll try and get some video of it crawlin over some of the crap I have down there.

Time for some shock absorbers now!

Looks awesome, flexes really nice up front. How does the rear look? Looks like it tucks in pretty well.
