Yeah, I was looking for something that would flow well with the body. For some reason, I hate tube steps... Just a personal preference I guess. TBH, I planned on going with the flush mount rocker guards until I saw these. The Warden will be happy about having a step to help her get in.

Can't wait to see the progress.

Thanks guys. I'm hoping my wheels show up this week. I have a decent amount of time this weekend and was hoping I'd be able to install my lift.... My fingers are crossed.

Ha, I guess you could say that. Its good stuff, well made here in the USA and their customer service has been great. I hope they build a hi-line style flat fender soon.

The lip of the step has some bumps designed into it to help keep you from slipping. You can sort of see it in the last pic. I'll snap a better pic of it when I get a chance.

Jeep looks great man, love to see how its coming along.

I have a request if you could please, I am considering buying those sliders at some point, curious how they look from the bottom. Like their coverage on the underside, ect...

I'm installing a Full Traction 4" long arm kit soon. I'll be stepping up from the little stock 31's to a 35" tire with some 17" wheels.

Thanks. I'll snap a couple pics sometime around lunch today so you can see how they look underneath.

I'm working on the suspension now. I snapped this quick pic of the rear last night before it got dark. Fingers crossed, I should be done installing the suspension tonight! I can't tell you how impressed I have been with the parts and customer service at Full Traction. Full Traction has really done there homework here and the quality of their parts is outstanding. I am no pro mechanic so I have sent my fair share of questions to the guys at Full Traction. They have been very, very helpful. More pics to come...

The lift is on! I finished it up late last night. It was too dark for photos so I'll snap a few today and post them up by tomorrow. Tomorrow the Jeep is scheduled for an alignment and the exhaust installation. Friday, if all goes as planned, the new shoes will be bolted up.

I've got some light on and off-road miles planned for the Jeep this weekend I can't wait to start breaking in the new suspension.
