Well here is ride height and a few shots of "the master at work", aka VACJ5.

So the brakes were acting up, and by acting up I mean not working. To remedy this I need a ZJ disc brake proportioning valve which I went and got, but unfortunately I managed to strip the bolt on one of the lines on my old p.v and had to leave it at Flatlanders again. It's going to be down for a little while because needless to say the remedy is out of my hands. More than frustrated at this point, it seems like every where I turn I forgot something or break/screw another thing up.

Ha, just saw this Ham. Like how I managed to hide my face in all the pics!?

Yeah... she sits a lil too tall for any good wheeling. Some stock springs and some 35's and he will be good to go. Let me know when the rears come in. Did you manage to get the steering stuff installed or at least up at the shop? No worries man, we will get it right.

Well for your sake i'd say it's good you hid your face 99% of the pics you welding haha. I got the steering done its just that prop valve! I've got a lead r two on some springs and gonna drop a line on those 35s tonight! My rear shocks will be in tomorrow. If you want I can roll up there tomorrow night slap the rear shocks on and go from there if you manage to tackle the brakes by then or need an extra hand.

I will head up there tomorrow then. I'll get those rear shocks on and see what I can do about getting your brakes straight.

Got the rig home tonight! What a relief and man what a difference. I got the rear shocks in and on, got my brakes bled, VACJ5 was a great help and great to work with. Does pretty badass fab work too! All that aside the jeep rides like a damn Cadillac but I've still got to get the brakes a little better (pedal is really soft), figure out why my tranny is crying, get a set of stock springs and an anti wrap bar! So excited right now!

Glad we could get you back on the road bud. You think it rides great now... wait till you get those softer springs. You will have much better flex too.
