There happened to be a snag int he install of the rear uppers needing new bushings so still dont have the Jeep back

In the meantime I've been sanding and painting the front bumper with winch plate and brush guard

Pics of that will be up later tonight

Thanks! Nope, no wheel spacers. The 4in zone kit comes with lower control arms and the tires just miss them at full turn.

Thinking of an anti-rock or some armor but I need some opinions of which to go with first? If I should get armor which parts do I protect first? Comments and opinions will be appreciated

Call up Jeff @ Rokmen, Get you one of there sweet Steering box skids, They are beef and worth every penny. Then see what he will sell you a Anti Rock for.

Jeep looks good. I love Rubi's Just please keep it a Rubi, not a Rubi on tons. That defeats the purpose in my opinion.

Thanks

Will an antirock f&^% up the ride quality on road?

This is my daily driver so it'll stay a Rubi and my build will reflect that

FINALLY picking up my Jeep tomorrow after getting the lift installed and having driveline vibration issues despite a new driveshaft. Had them throw in the rear upper adjustables and we should be good to go!

^no opinions?

Picked up the Jeep Saturday, runs and drives great. Rear Warn bumper is installed, still painting the Warn front bumper, and have no received the rock sliders in the mail yet.

Will have pics of the new lift and bumper tomorrow
