Spraying is finally done!

The tintable liner turned out really well; It's very close to body color. The only bad thing was that that made it really difficult to see if I had covered an area well enough. The good thing is that any small crevices where I missed aren't noticeable at all. It came out really well, just enough texture to be durable, but nothing like line-x.

Shot of everything back together. I'll get a few more up later.

Today was a good day.

Last night I installed my Savvy Black Magic brake pads and Centric Rotors, and began the break-in process. I finished breaking them in this morning, and all I can say is WOW! I can't believe how much better the Jeep brakes now. According to reports, it'll continue to get better for a few days; my brakes are already good enough for 35's IMO. Back to back comparison with my mom's Subaru Outback was pretty close, especially given how much more unsprung weight I have.

I also ran the wires for my speaker pods up through my roll bar. Somebody in another thread mentioned that drilling into the roll bar would compromise its structural integrity, so rather than take the chance, I merely widened an existing hole and ran the wires up. It took a long time and was a PITA, but I'm happy with the results. No way am I putting that padding back on now!



And finally, here's another pic of the final product of the Raptor Liner.

Finally ordered a set of Goodyear MT/R's with Kevlar. They should be here by Friday, I'll have them mounted and installed as soon as they arrive.

I only got four for the moment... The question is, should I get a spare or the Savvy rear bumper? I'll have both eventually, just... Which one first?

Evidently I just had to spend more money today... After the tires, I went ahead and ordered the Savvy rear receiver bumper, Savvy corner guards, Currie mini-skids and a Novak shifter. I don't want to look at my bank accounts... But I just had to take advantage of the sales Savvy is having for the Expo!

Sadly, the corners probably won't be installed until I can get a set of the Savvy sliders as well... I don't think they'll mate up well with the Metalcloak rockers, so it's just an excuse to switch to something lighter. Savvy stuff is too beautiful to go hacking away at, or have it fit anything less than perfectly.

Thanks! One of the best rock crawling parks on the East Coast, right here in Crozet, 20 minutes from me. Check out Rock Crawlers for the Preservation of Future Access (RCPFA.com) They've got around 100 acres of land to wheel, ranging from blues to blacks to reds. Really great stuff; there are pictures on page 20 of this thread.

Finally, the 35" MT/R's are on!

They're a LOT bigger than the old 33" (more like 32") BFG All Terrains...


I felt somewhat cramped on the way to the shop...


Aaaand I still need to do an alignment, there's a bit of a shimmy around 45mph.

Haha no, thanks! I doubt I'll ever get rid of it, unless something horrible comes up that makes me.

I was at work when I got the tires put on, so after I went to pick it up, I kept staring out the window at it. My coworkers thought it was hilarious.
