I just smashed the same all the way in, took out the taillight, license plate and fender flare. Check my build for pics. Jeep looks good, I'd personally avoid RC but I know how a budget works. Wait till you get to college.

Already in college (military school). The budget sucks! I will slowly upgrade everything though. Bilstein shocks, RE coils, and a long arm kit are coming soon after I finish the axle swap.

Had some free time, managed to finish the rear bumper. Got Saturday off this week, hopefully will be picking up a limited slip ford 8.8 with disk brakes and 4.10 gears in my area!

Picking up my rear axle tomorrow as long as everything checks out in person. Also found a shop that does regears for a decent price, so may regear the front if I can't find a dana 30 with 4.10 gears already.

Is that a college or a highschool?

Updates coming soon! I bought my rear axle, and have a truss and bracket kit from Artec Industries ready to be welded up at my house. Also have a new radio I got for my birthday that I will be putting in this weekend.

Sorry for the long wait, it's hunting season and I've been busy! Here are some pics of my new rear axle. I ended up buying an Artec Industries truss and bracket kit for it. Will have it welded by thanksgiving and swapped during Christmas break.
