Welcome to JeepForum
haha yea here are some before stock pictures and of all the stuff im going to put on. its not too exciting but its on a high school budget. Rough Country was great with customer service all the parts where there and arrived in teo day

heres what it looks like now still stock but not for long

and just to get an idea of what it will look like

I was split between KM2s and Claws, i decided for claws since they are not on back order, i will try KM2s when i move up to 35s

New springs

New shocks

i have to wait till after labor to install it i shouldnt have ordered it so soon, but i will take lots of pictures of the install, as far as action shot go that might be difficult because just about everywhere in the city of vabeach offroading is illegal so it will be a mallcrawler until i move and go wheelin

That is a nice start. Keep it up.


And it just goes to show that you really don't need a bunch of money to work on a jeep. Most of the mods that are on my Jeep are hand-me-downs and work very well.

Finished installing everything!! I got two days off of work to install it and it went in without any major problems, im loving the new height and ride cant wait to get it off road. the only problem is i got to rushed a little and rushed putting a lug nut on and cross threaded it so then the entire stud broke off. but for putting an lift in myself im not to dissappointed with losing one lug nut stud. i am getting it fixed and aligned on friday and will take pictures of everything after that. and hopefully some action shots soon afterwards.

ok since installing the lift was kinda spur of the moment i didnt take pictures of the install it was basically drop the axles new coil spring, shocks, and sway bar links. everything went in ok. we had to use spring compressors on the front coils which was scary as crap and never want to do that again. on this lift most people leave out the rear .75" pucks so everything sits nice and level i decided to put them in because i like the slightly leaning forward look thats just me.

I have not installed my new steering stabalizer yet, im still pb blasting the old one so it will come off easy. other than that the lift turned out great i got an alignment and everthing drives fine...except the extreme lack of power...dang 3.07s should never be put in a jeep.

oh and of course stupid me too of the bumpstops in the front and forgot to put them back on before i put the coil in...any suggestions to help my stupidity would be appreciated




this was way before the lift settled at all it looks alot better now


next after i install the steering stabalizer im going to order a currie front adjustable track bar to recenter my axles and then im going to attempt some homemade sway bar disconnects im going to use this design


oh and if i have enough money im going to order and RC stinger too
