The guy ended up selling em before I could buy. So, now I'm on the hunt for some 31's.

Lift completed!!

Day pics soon. I did have a couple rattles, after the lift, but I have worked them out for the most part. Most were caused by bolts/whatnot not being tightened all the way.


Just to give everyone an idea, these are the parts I used:

Rusty's 3" Spring Pack
Rusty's .75" Extended Shackles
Rusty's Quick Discos

Ive done some more work since I last posted. I put in a 136amp alternator from a Grand Cherokee. Ive got a transfer case drop that Im putting in tommorow, as well as a steering stabilizer, since ive had some death wobble. Ill get some pics up. Im looking for some 31's if anyone local might have some for sale.
