Ok moving along, rear is done for the most part. I installed the rear suspension after using a quick rattle can paint job. Then moved onto the new rear corner guards, opened the wheel opening a little because from GenRight the corners are cut for a 35" tire.
I still need to adjust the suspension at ride height, you can see where the bump stop is, should only be 2" away from contact but it's more like 4". I'll finish the adjustment when I finish the front and have all the weight in the Jeep, sliders, gas, gear etc....
Thank you for all the kind words, it's not easy doing this on my garage floor, but I'm making do.
Here's a few of the front end. The worst part of the build is this black under coating that is all over the frame. I'm in socal and not used to having to deal with under coating, using a wire wheel to get it off the frame makes one heck of a mess, guess I'm just a little spoiled.
Here I removed all the OEM brackets from the frame and axle. Cleaned up the frame and prep'ed the frame for the axle. Started welding all the GenRight brackets together and placing them on the frame and front axle.
