Heres some aftermath pictures of the weekend, as well as a carnage shot.

First time ive ever done damage. It was to the top tried to fit under the tree in the first page and apparently the booms made me too tall.


Dirty


Pulled the rear fender flares off to paint them as well as pulling off my front fender to put on the new one!

Don't even notice its there when im in 2wd

Love the build so far. I'm thinking about getting the RC 4" lift but ppl say it's wicked stiff and not an enjoyable ride. What do you think? And did you have to buy any additional parts besides what comes with the lift?

Thanks man! and you know it was pretty stiff at the beginning but it softened up a little and tire pressure played a huge roll in ride quality as well. I run about 31psi. Once I did the Boomerang shackles too I was able to run the shackle bolts at less torque to which also helped my ride quality, I wasn't comfortable running 45lbs of torque on the stock old bolts. The new booms came with new nylon locking hardware. All in all I really like the lift it works well for me and goes everywhere I want it to go, and the price is great. The only other thing I did was buy Stainless steel brake lines I didn't like the idea of brake line relocation.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! I had actually bought them for a grand cherokee I was working on then I got this YJ for a steal and sold the grand cherokee the next day for more than I paid for my YJ! I still had the wheels and I was skeptical on how they were going to look the YJ but so far I really like them.

Its got the 2.5L low output with a AX5

Heres how I bought it: I have the fender in my garage just need to paint it..




Also got rid of all the chrome crap on the headlights and bumper

Heres how she sat after the lift did a RC 4" lift:



Added some windshield lights and some 33" BFGs, Still working on painting the fender. As you can tell someone cut into the soft top at one time. Figure keep an eye on craigslist for new door tops or some full doors


haha i would atleast use clear packing tape or something instead of black duct tape. something you can see thru till u get a new top lol
