Green and red are a little overplayed. Yellow would be kinda cool actually. That or silver.

Started on the MetalCloak Gamer changer lift install today, since it was the first decent weekend day this year. Took a lot longer than expected. But I did stop and eat twice. My daughter was helping and decided to pick up a cut-off from the shock tower. She cut her finger and that took a while since she has low factor 8, bleeds a lot and very slow to clot.

Still have the back to do and replace all brake lines.


Here is the 9/16 hole drilled for the bump stops. The new quality Cobalt bits I bought made this some much easier.



Also did track bar and longer sway bar links.



CAs install.




For the six pack shocks you need to trim the shock tower and the spring bucket. done and painted.




Springs and bump stops installed.




six pack shocks installed.

Sorry to hear about the setbacks but it's about time. Now let's get some after shots!

What did you do with the old springs/shocks? I may be interested.

Sweet! I like the direction this is headed. Those shocks look wicked, can't wait to hear how they perform.

Great looking build! Since I bought an LJ, my wife is coming around to the idea of a new Unlimited (which I will make sure is a Rubi)

Great plan, showed my wife the 10th anniversary Rubi and she loved it. Then told how much more it would cost and that I could get a better deal off the lot. She said OK but I have to make it look cool because she wont drive a soccer mom jeep.

You sons of guns. I would show up but my brother is getting married and then I graduate. You know how it goes...gotta show up for the lesser things.

Tanimal, you know better then not consulting me beforehand.
