What did they take and what part of town are you in? I get nervous every time I go down there to visit the gf. Luckily she graduates next month and is moving up here. Not that here is any better, hell my truck got stolen.

I live in apartments basically on campus. They opened my door, took my seat covers and grab handles.

Been a while since I updated this but things are about to start happening since I have a job and some cash to burn.

Got some steelies, cause, well I was tired of the crap that was on there. Just ordered some ball joints cause mine are toast currently.

Currently buying/aquring parts for a rear 4 link and small stretch. 4"-6". Stock gas tank skid will be cut and modified, and the tank will be pushed in to make room. Getting poly 4link frame brackets, got a lead on a synergy truss.

Love the build, looks like a fun rig! How do you like the antirock sway? I like the look of steelies too, just be cautious cause they do bend. I had two bend on me where the lugs are, so there was a bit of a wobble. It took many many trips to do that though, and that was on my WJ which is way heavier.

Anyways, will be following!

Yah am a little tedious of that, but I will cross that bridge if/when it comes.

Love the antirock, recommended by me for sure

Parts coming in! I got 5 JJ plus tube adapters and frame side Synergy brackets for a solid deal, just gotta get the other 3 and axle side goodies now.

1 1/4" Shank all around.

Also did some ball joints, so that was fun......

Ball joints are a pain in the butt until you buy the correct adapters and then they are easy .

Agreed man, with the right adapters it would have been cake.
