-sorry pics are so big.


outside my garage. mini van in back ground for some scale reference



A little closer up



Interior shot. Hand throttle attached on top of dash. Cobra cb mounted down on passenger side. Grant steering wheel.




finally pics for you guys, with way more to come.!!!


97' 4 banger, 4.11's, D35/D30, 4" roughcountry lift, 1" BL, 8000lb Harborfreight winch, Stinger bumper, Cobra CB, KC lites, 33x12.5 TSL bias mounted on black steelies.

Holy SHaaayyeeet! That Jeep is BIG! I'd need a forklift just to get in and out of it every day. Really looks awesome though. Have fun with it.

Nice pics Forklift. What suspension are you running? I know you have a body lift but what springs? The reason I ask is because I am running 4.5" RE springs and last weekend at full flex I noticed my extended brake lines were REALLY snug. I even moved my brackets to get more slack. Just a heads up. Looks great

I have the worlds cheapest way to achive 9" of lift. (also the most unstable) 4" superlift springs, 3" bodylift, 2" RE coil spacers.

The brake lines seem like there very loose and have plenty of play, but thanks for the heads up!

Damn dude that is huge... Looks good man. How big do those MTR's actually measure? I checked my 35's the other day and they measured just above 33". That was at a kinda low pressure though and the one i measured is the most worn.

Does it still fit in the garage? It looks like it could be close.

I am just curious - how well will the super 35 kit hold up with 37's? I guess you can upgrade your u-joints your front shafts too.
