its been a while since i've posted on my lame build thread haha... and its been a while since i've done anything to my jeep, its been too cold outside. its supposed to warm up a little on thursday (39 degrees... warmest its been in weeks). i plan to remove my t-case drop kit my quest to get rid of drive-line vibes... since i have a MML, i guess the t-case drop is not needed, i guess i'll find out. the u-joint is toast, so i'll be replacing that too and making sure the drive-line angles are O.K., maybe some adjustable control arms will need some adjusting. i may have opened up a can of worms, cause my custom exhaust will have to be changed when the t-case is raised back to the stock position. ....***** that reminds me, a tcase skid bolt broke off, i guess i'll be drilling that out too. lots to do, wish me luck

Haha good luck, I really like your bumper BTW. Oh and I only have a 2.5" with a 1" MML and I still had to drop the transfer case with a couple of washers, so hopefully it'll work out better for you but worst to worst just use some washers to drop it, they are more precise and will save you about 1/2" or so in clearance.

Yo man. Jeep is looking good. I just realized that you are the guy I was trying to trade flares with. I have those pocket style flares. We exchanged a few e-mails. I finally have the Jeep inspected and back on the road. Let me know if you're still interested!

And what did you end up doing with those moabs?

A red axle. Ehhh...Maybe the track bar red and the sway bar would look ok. I like black parts. Keep them clean and black.
