I think this pretty much puts me current. Gonna be ready for tires this summer, so gotta make some decisions. Here's how the heep sits to date.....

this isn't exactly a mod but I'll add it here just the same. Had a small issue with my clutch master cylinder yesterday. The piston rod the connects to the clutch pedal decided to relieve itself from the master cylinder! The clutch pedal position switch didn't like that one bit!

Found a good deal on a clutch master assy from of all places a Jeep dealer! Ordered it up and will hopefully get it next week. Went ahead and bypassed the clutch disconnect so I can start it. Saying goodby to my upper control arms stash!

Well, looks like I'm waiting till next Thursday for my clutch master. In an effort to save a few bucks shipping, The outside sales rep will be in my area next week and will deliver it to my work. Until then, I may just drive it anyways. Just gotta go easy on the clutch pedal to keep that piston rod from falling out.
On a better note, I thought I'd go ahead and share my choice of wheels I picked out for the next tire upgrade. I've been sitt'n on these wheels for a while now just waiting for these dang BFG's to wear down enough to justify some new tread. I know they are a bit blingy, but I like them just the same, and the price was right so if I scar em up on the trail I won't be all broken up about it.....

It's been over a week now since I've been able to drive the jeep. Won't get the clutch master till Thursday and won't have access to the shop till the weekend. Another week I can't drive it! Breaking stuff sucks!

Thanks! Been following your build as well. Totally jealous on the AR and Novac shifter! I noticed you put the AR on the second hole. How's the ride on pavement?

I put my AR on the last hole because I like to live dangerously.

Love the build so far! Thinking about the UCF lopro mount soon! How much does it drop the tcase down?

I was thinking of running it and the UCF no body lift skid.

EDIT: Also how are the flares holding up after painting them? Everytime it rains mine are back to grey. That back to black stuff is great when the sun is out but washes right off after it rains.

Lopro adds 1" of clearance. The UCF no body lift skid does not even need the lopro but if you get one (lopro that is) shoot for the extra clearance skid.

Thanks ChaseB! Been following your build as well. As AngryTJ mentioned, about 1". It allowed me to remove the TC pucks with no vibes. Had to grind a couple spots on the mount to fit the factory shovel. Don't think it would have been an issue if I had the UCF skid. I considered the No BL skid, but I think I can get away with the extra clearance skid if I get a BL/MML. Was deadset against the BL, but it is an inevitability if I want to continue my build plans. I could go the SYE/DCDS route and forgo the BL/MML, but I need more clearance to eventually fit 33's, once again, it's inevitable.
