Now it's time to install the 1.25 inch body lift! I am only 5 feet 1 inches tall. . and already this Jeep is getting to tall for me! I have to use the grab handle to get in! But it's so darn cool!!

Here is a pic of the finished Springs, Sway Bar, and Shocks


The Mechanic got the bolt out for us!! So here is the new Steering Stabllizer


My husband putting the fan shroud back in after making the modifications to it.

IT"S DONE!!! DONE DONE DONE!!!
Again. . it was dark. . The body lift took about 3 hours to do. So all together the Suspension Lift, Shocks, Sway Bar, Steering Stabllizer, and Body Lift took about 11 hours to put on. I have to get some new pics of the Jeep in the daylight still. But so far. . that is our Jeep build!!

It wasn't bolted in completely before the shock went in.

lockers sound good, but dont lock a D35 axle if that is what you have in the rear, instead upgrade to a 8.8 or D44 then lock, have fun with your new Jeep!
