Front Control Arms Installed

Finished the upper and lower FRONT control arms, still have to do the back, once the back is done, I'm going to go from the 31" tires I have now to 32's... was going to do 33's but I think I'm going to stay with 32's

Looks good. I like how the wheels kind of clash against the dark color of the Jeep.

P.S. nice random meme

Those decisions are usually made when you're one step closer and see how one thing looks and whether or not you like it lol. At least for me

The green shock boots definitely don't match the "red paint" haha but they'll look good when I get it monstalined!

Got both axles centered almost PERFECT, off by less than 1/8 of an inch, fixed my interior lights and only needed a fuse. Went and bought two hockey pucks, and JB Welded them to the axle inside the coil, to use as extended bumpstops an those babies ain't going anywhere lol. Took it on a close back dirt road with big pot holes and ruts and small mud/water puddles, everything did pretty well

And no death wobble at 70 mph after hitting bumps! Adjustable control arms with new bushings solved that problem!

So, last night when I got home after a 30 min ride in the jeep with the ac on high... passenger floor board was soaking wet, so I need to blow out the drain line, and possibly, cut the hole in the wheel well and add a 3" tube... Also, broke the passenger side headlight already lol that didn't take long!

It looks great just is only connected by one "attachment rod" or "adjustment rod" so it's loose... I'm tempted to yank the NEW OEM lights I just installed awhile ago and put in a single housing headlight...

You have certain ones in mind? I thought about aftermarket ones off ebay but hear bad things about most. Other than three piece ones that are similar to stock lol. I decided to tint my blinkers instead and pop in Sylvania xfe's or whatever the newest whitest brightest light they have is I think that will dramatically help day and night time appearance. Guess I'll see when it's all done haha

Yeah I have everything tinted EXCEPT the actual headlights... I like it I just hate that the front headlights take 6 pieces in the front.. All the ebay ones I've seen so far are junk. I'll prolly just keep these new stock ones and find a way to mount them a little better and more secure. MAY get projectors in the future.. but that will be after about another $1000 worth of stuff I'm planning on doing to the jeep lol

Rear adjustable control arms for upper and lower, monster lining, and 32's All terrains, and front bumper, those are my top priority right now. $$ is tight right now, waiting on my gf and I to move and get settled and couple big payments of student loans to get taken care of... then I can start dumping $$ back into the jeep lol
