I wasnt doubting that your swap was solid and done right, i just mean how did you swap the axles and still be able to get where you need? Just did it on a weekend or something?

I was gunna buy an old c10 this winter so i could have my jeep apart for days at a time but i cant afford that with my two current projects

Mounted my metalcloaks yesterday. Wish I had started earlier, had to finish in the dark!

Don't mind the "rigged" blinkers... They are very temporary just so I don't get pulled over for now. Haven't decided what I'm going to do for blinkers yet. In between JK turn signals or little LED's.

You got to love the new look! As for the blinkers I when with a headlight with LED rings and made half the ring as my blinker. Checkout my build and you will see them. It keeps it clean.

Jeep looks good, so when are you going to do the rear flares/corner armor?

It's on the never ending list lol. I should probably fix the body first because otherwise the flares and corners won't fit right

So I found a good deal on new quick disconnect sway bar links and decided to put them on. Only took a few minutes, but they disconnect much better than my old ones. Also ordered some VisionX Tantrum rock lights today just for ****s and giggles.

I haven't adde any pictures of the metalcloaks clearance while flexing yet. This is 4" of lift and 35's. I can still stuff it pretty good. If I flexed another 1/2 inch I could definitely rub. My LED blinkers have been ordered and should be here soon.

My front LED blinkers aren't here yet, but my buddy gave me some rear LED lights to use as brake lights (same as the jeep style). They're crazy bright and very responsive. I also installed my rock lights. Pretty cool!

I would recommend you buy a different pair of locking pins for the new disconnects. I lost the original within the first week. I got better ones from homedepot,havent lost a single one since
