I was going to paint it but then a guy in my local club suggested polishing it so I gave it a shot. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I'll be painting the alum tt though because that will take more abuse and it'll be easier to touch up quickly. Also the gts is more visible to see the shine.

Got the ucf tt on today and adjusted the pinion angle for it.

No issues with the 231 hitting anywhere or exhaust contacting the skid

And About 19” of clearance to the skid on a little bit of unlevel ground

And the stock skid all beat up

Nice jeep. It was a pretty good day of wheeling. Traction sucked with the wet rocks from the rain. I was planning on going back today but my rear main seal is leaking. I'll be dropping the jeep off at a shop tomorrow to get that fixed. Don't have enough time to do it at home right now.

That sucks but atleast it'll be fixed. I think the next wheeling trip I'll take is to the Big Dogs Ice Breaker at the Cover on April 30-May 1st.

I also might look into getting an ARB installed in the rear axle sometime soon. Have the money for it but need to decide if I want to do that or look at something else.
