That should be a sweet setup. Make sure to do a build thread!

It's my favorite for sure. You know, I'd like to get my corner guards and the backing plate on the sliders powdercoated to match, but it costs too much. And the bruised black and blue has really grown on me. My Jeep and I match most of the time too

You probably have more pics than I do!

Big day today. Got the JJ kit installed on the 30, and it got a coat of flat black paint. Rear coil buckets were relocated on the frame. And the outboard kit was installed. Don't have the 7100s in yet though, gotta get a couple shims to make them fit in the mounts.

Coil bucket cut off


Coil bucket relocated, with outboarded shock tower next to it.


HP30 all painted up with nice new Johnny Joints. You can also see the gussets on the C's.

So relocating the rear springs made a HUGE difference in how the Jeep handles. It's much more stable and flat in corners, and it feels a lot more planted. Not as much body roll either.

Got the Bilstein 7100s in today. They're a bit stiff bit we'll see how they do next week in Mojave. Didn't have time to get the rear Prothanes in though.

Also got the front axle in. Huge thank you to Kevin (tjdualsport) for all the help. I can't thank you enough bud!

Pics tomorrow of my resi's zip tied/duct taped in place for now

Picked up some big hose clamps today to hold the reservoirs down in place (for now, until we fab up some kind of mount.) it may not look the best but they're on there solid.
