Latest work


Trimmed! Not very much, but it'll do. Don't mind the roughness about them. I still need to file and paint. Also got pictures of the reverse lights. They work great for $10. A buddy gave me an antenna, so I crafted a cb antenna mount.

Damn right! Maybe I should paint them chrome so they're even more flashy

Your jeep looks good! I've got a black Cherokee too, but I'm still on a 3" lift.

I have a question for you. What did you do for shocks? Are you still using the 3" shocks? Does it limit your flex at all?

Thanks guys.

The flex is limited by the shocks, but not to where it hurts the crawlability. They are rancho rs5000 for 3.5" lift. IF I keep the 5.5 lift, I'll get bilstein 5100s for the correct lift amount and should flex even better

I know some of you have seen this already, but took it wheeling yesterday at Corral Canyon. It flexed enough to get me through everything. Only 3 wheeled once
