Looks Awesome!!!!
I posted a link to the reverse lights earlier in the thread somewhere, Ill find it later. The taillights are just standard 4" LED truck lights. The evap canister is under the hood on early models, so I didnt have to move it.

Anyone ever had this type of situation happen to them? For a few weeks I had the air line for my front ARB riding around with me in my Comanche, and I was afraid it was gonna get damaged or lost, so I moved it. NOW I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT I DID WITH IT!!! Not happy with myself right now...

Still haven't found the air line for the ARB, so I stole the air line from the hp44 I have sitting around. It leaks from the air line where it goes into the compressor. I'm missing the little copper piece that goes inside the line for the ferule to clamp around, so Im guessing that is why it isnt sealing correctly. It locks, but the compressor kicks on every 5 seconds or so. Kind of annoying but it'll have to suffice for now.

Yep, finally got around to outboarding the shocks. Want very hard, just time consuming. Was pretty much the same process as the stretch coil buckets.

Thanks, I can't take credit for them though. My dad has a good friend who is a professional welder, so I've been having him do most of the welding on this jeep. They are beautiful welds, and there is no chance in hell they will fail.

Reinstalled gas tank today (removed it for safety when cutting out the shock towers). Extended the hard brake line so I could hook up the brakes to the rear axle, then bleed the brakes.

To do list:

Cycle rear suspension again (tomorrow)
Finish shocks
Set rear ride height
Gear oil in diffs
Rear driveshaft
Torque all bolts
Sway bars font and rear
Paint and install sliders
Tie down battery
Switch MTZs over from LJ
Etc?

Really not much left, outboarding the shocks was the last big project. I'm probably going to gulches next weekend, so if I get everything finished I might take this instead of the LJ. We'll see.

Cycled the suspension today for what should be the last time to check shock clearances. The passenger side is perfect, no contact at any point through the full cycle.



The driver side contacts the back of the shock tower at full droop, but only when the passenger side is at full stuff. It just barely kisses it, so I think I can grind a little material away and it will be fine. I don't think it will ever hit hard enough to matter. An extra half inch of bumpstop on the passenger side will fix it if it does become a problem.



(Pictures are at full stuff on the passenger side and full droop on the driver side)

I haven't set the ride height in the rear yet, but it should be right around 5" up and 5" down.
