Last night I finished:
- 3.5" foundation lift kit IRO
- installed adj front and rear track bars IRO
- adjusted the power steering box along with a rebuild (which was leaking oil)
- ripped out the old brake pads/rotors, put in brand new ones
- In the front I kept the old isolator pads and put on a new pair as well so double stacked them. (bought from kolak) (I have an extra pair too if anyone wants them)
- Bought NEW rear coils with the kit, instead of doing the F to B swap, which the old front coils were about .75"-1" shorter than the new rear coils I bought, (so I double stacked the pads in the front, to even it out)

I'm thinking I have right under a 4" lift

Now I need to figure out what wheels/tires to get, I'm thinking about buying the adapters and getting some black JK wheels, and probably some BF goodrich A/T, i'm real;y not sure what to get yet.

The tires I have on there now that came with the jeep are Falken Rocky Mountain All Terrains they are 30x9.5x15.

I am thinking I will do some trimming and slap on some 32's? or think I can get away without trimming with just 32's? since I don't run with a front bumper cover?

-Also, I plan on getting a front winch bumper, just don't know what I want yet.
- Also, I do know the green shocks don't match haha, but the jeep will be blacked out and painted black, idk if I want to do all bedliner everywhere, or paint black and jsut do cladding bed lined... hmmm but the jeep will be all black with the only color being the green shock boots.

OHHH ALSO I NEED TO PUT THE SKID PLATE BACK ON.. FORGOT TO DO THAT LAST NIGHT ha

Centered the axles a little more this morning, and re-tightened up all the bolts in the steering, really considering cutting the tailpipe off at the muffler... b/c it rattles pretty bad! Bought a set of 4 wheels and tires I will be putting on soon as well hopefully this weekend if I have time

I ended up buying some 15" steelies I'm going to scuff up and paint black, either flat black or maybe even use bed liner for the wheels, not sure yet, and the tires are only 31X10.5X15 I was wanting 32's but for $125 for 4 wheels and 4 tires with 80-90% tread left... it was a great deal I couldn't pass it up.

So I will prolly run those 31's until I install all 8 adjustable control arms..

Alright here are pictures, Today is a slow day at work, I'm tempted to go in the parking lot and cut off my tail pipe while I'm "working" haha I'm my own boss so I can do that... but I got 4 of these WITH 31X10.5X15 tires!

I'm REALLY REALLY thinking I'm going to use bedliner spray to do the wheels...

either way this weekend they are getting some SOS pads used on them and cleaned up

Don't think I've ever seen anyone use bedliner on wheels. It would definitely look different!
What kind of work do you do, if you don't mind me asking?

Yeah me too! They cleaned up 1000X better than I thought they would! WOOOOO

I got them balance and put on the jeep already just haven't taken a picture of them on yet.

I doubt I paint them lol Now I need to try and sell my stock wheels and my 30X10.5x15 falkens on craigslist ha. Only have 3 wheels and 3 tires though, the jeep didn't come with a spare tire so I'm keeping the best and using it as a spare tire

Monday My headliner will be done, so the inside of my jeep can start looking pretty again haha just waiting on my adjustable control arms to come in which I'm guessing I have at least a week before they get here, when they arrive I'll install those bad boys. Then hopefully maybe take a few guns and go play around by the lake, do a little "off road testing" and skeet shootin' !!

I used SOS pads and sprayed simple green and just scrubbed clean and wiped it down, still want to polish them up and see how much more shiny I can get them!
