Yep that's about right but I will have a winch on the cj. So go down the obstacle and back up it and then winch the Jk. Haha.

I think I will send my frame and axles and other misc parts out to get blasted tomorrow if they aren't super busy this week. Can't wait to see what it looks like bare metal.

I bet you would. There is an abandoned house about a mile from mine. Move there and you can use my building.
