I don't use them if I don't have to, but when I don't feel like disconnecting the trackbar, I use them.

I finally got my camera to take better pictures than my cell phone, so I did a little photo shoot after I went to coin wash. I need to pin-stripe the doors.

If you look at RC springs they compress. Hell, if you asked them nicely they might just hop onto the axle for you.

Enjoy the lift mang. Go wheel! Or come to Badlands and wheel with me. I'll sign your waiver. lol

Nice build so far. Get rid of that other tube bumper and get some armor on there.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

I've got the papers ready to go, signed and notarized I just need a date and time and I'll be there, my friends backyard doesn't cut it anymore.
Besrk rear bumper w/ tire carrier is on my to-do list.

My jeep started freakin squeaking again, I am 95% sure it is the distributer making the noise, while its squeaking, if I put pressure on it, it stops squeaking, what the hell could make a distributer squeak?

Trust me the distributor was the last thing I'd expect, i've checked.
When I put pressure on the distributor, the squeaking stops, It's definitely something in the distributor.

I found an 00 explorer with 80,000 miles and 3.73 gears for cheap, I am going to get the rear end this weekend.
8.8 on the way

you don't like the 3.73s with 33x10.5s? I had the same setup for over a year and i thought it was very good, although and 8.8 is nice to have out back.

The 3.73's are fine in the city but they suck donkey nuts on the highway, the 8.8 will be very nice, it only has 80,000 miles on it, i'll throw an aussie in it probably, and a super 88 kit down the road.

Rear end model wouldn't make a difference, just a matter of personal preference.
