Finished up the install of lift.

I was trying to sell my factory Soft top and was then going to buy a Trek top NX. Found a local guy with a brand new, in the box, Trek Top NX, but he wanted a OEM TOP. So I traded with him today, got his Trek Top and $100 cash.

Here it is with the lift and the Trek Top Installed. It was harder to get the top on than the lift, Not really, but a new top is very tight.

Looks good! For some reason I only like those trek tops on 4 doors

Thanks, I agree the 2dr does not look as good. I think it"s because the angle is not as sharp on those.

Your build is coming along nicely. How do you like the ride so far?

Thanks, the build is not going as fast as I'd like.

I've got Spidertrax spacers on order for 35s. Still got to get front bumper and fenders painted.

I've only driven around town but I really like it. After spending all that money and time on the lift your brain might play tricks on you, so the real test was the wife. After riding shotgun for 45 minutes she said it rode better than before.

No rain today!! Got some work done.

Here's the rear Game changer suspension, you can see the control arms, bump stop, track bar and bracket, sway bar drop bracket, new brake line and Game changer shock.




I got my Spidertrax spacers installed.




finished the install of the River Raider Skid system.




I'm getting ready for 35s so I cut the Rubi rail and pinch seam down.



Also install some zipper pulls I made the other night.

I had an extra piece in the River Raider Skids, that was not in the instructions or on the exploded diagram of parts.




Sent an email to RR over the weekend, Kenny Replied early today. He was sorry that it was not in the instructions yet. They added and extra support to beef up the rear of transfer case skid. I'll need to drill a few holes. I'm glad they included it. Looks like it will add a lot of strength.

Looking good, a buddy just ordered the MC lift for his 2dr JK....no 6 packs though. Hope it arrives in time to install before out Moab trip on May 18th.

Can't wait to see the new shoes mounted up.

Coming along nicely...It does need the bigger shoes to put it all back in proportion. Did you need to modify the exhaust with the rear sway bar drop brackets?

Thanks. your buddy might get lucky when I ordered mine it was delayed because they build the Six Pack shocks to order. If I was headed to Moab I'd be disappointed if I couldn't get the lift on in time. I hope it makes it.

Thanks. No I think I'll be ok. But I've only done driveway jack assisted articulation so far. Real test will be at Two River Jeep Safari on the 16th.
