Nice build , but sorry also not a fan of the stickers . Would look cleaner with out them, but that's my opinion and it's not my jeep. Good luck with the build

How much, if any, lift did the Genright coil perches add? Did you have to switch to a shorter spring to level out the ride or end up just putting a spacer up front?

A pic of the original dash pod speakers


I used 6.5" alpines in the soundbar. Now I need to get the all digital Alpine head unit along with the Alpine mini amp that mates right up under the dash for premium performance.

I had to use the adapter rings to make the 6.5" speakers work in the original holes. But I did trim off all of those mounting fingers that look like crap.

What a friggin pain in the a$$ it was to have to get out and disconnect if I saw a pile I wanted to play on, no more!

Here a good representation of what most of our local trails look like this time of year, so it's a good time to do whatever ya need to do, if your gonna be down for a while.

......or ya can go wake boarding behind your rig!


That waggy sits up higher than my booty!

I've been wanting to get rid of my brake light towering over my 35" tire. It cut down the little view that I had. I was going to mount the new light on top of my CB antenna pole mount which would just put it even with the top of the tire. 3-4" lower than what I had. But, came up with a much better and kinda stealth location. Since I have the MT Classic 2 wheels with the large holes in the rims I thought why not mount it hidden inside the rim and backlight all the holes to look like one giant brake light. After trying a few heights I ended up lining it up with the top hole so you can really see it. this unit is one that the police use in their cruisers so some of you know how bright that is. It comes with about 30 different flash patterns. There's no missing this light, holy crap! Gonna take it out tonight to see if I get the finger from anyone.....

During:








And that's in the sunshine!

After:

On a festive note, my son designs/draws houses. His wife's office was having a charity contest to see who could build the best gingerbread house using the SAME kit. Here's what they did to be different. Call it the "Ripleys believe it or not"house, after the one in Orlando, Fl. That was built upside down on the outside.

Driving around it's funny to watch a lot of people reading the "B L A C K B O O T Y " as there mouthing the words, (you can read their lips) then a giant smile immediately follows. I love the reactions.

replacing the bushing ends of my rear long arms with some new Currie Joints




Relocating the rear shocks bottom mounts to line up with the long arm mounts to free up room to slide over rocks.
