Hunterdad's WK Build

Figured I would start a build thread as it's almost time to start the lift. Here's what I'm going with:

RC 2" BB
Monroe LL's
GC 17" Rims-Rhino Lined
GY Wranglers at/s 265-70-17
TeraFlex 1.25" Wheel Spacers

Here's the jeep as it sits now:

Do boi bikini Do boi nam cao cap Do boi nu cao cap Do boi tre em Ty gia Cho thue studio o ha noi Do boi tre em de thuong
I found a set of wheels off a stock '07 WK with the TPMS sensors for $75. Only problem was that someone tried painting them and failed miserably:


So, I decided to rhinoline them, since that is pretty much the toughest coating I could get outside of powedercoating. This is what I ended up with:


I couldnt wait to get them mounted so I loaded everything up and headed to the tire shop last Friday. Lets hope they hold up because I'm really diggin them:


Next up was to get rid of the dinky 1.25" hitch. I have a bbq smoker that I tow around on a regular bases and the longest drop they make is 6". So i order up a 2" hitch and got that on last Sunday. Really quite a pain, but not too awful.
Out with the old:

In with the new:


I also perforformed the pinch weld last weekend. Hopefully i did it well enough. I also picked up a Hypertech programmer used for $125 and did the tune yesterday as well as put in new NGK v-power spark plugs. WOW, what a difference. The lift will be on next weekend and I'll certainly post up some pics of the finished project.

Thanks!

Sorry, this ended up not being much of a build thread. We had so many problems with the install that we only took a few pics. Took 10hrs, but was worth it.
