Ekk. Im slacking on this build. The everlasting nonexistant job market makes it hard to have extra cash flow for the jeep. Heres some pictures of the parts I have been stashing.

More Parts:










I also have some Cragar V5s stacked in the garage but cant find the picture I took. Ill get one soon.

Shouldnt be long now. Tires are on the way. Debating on ordering new springs for up front since I know they are pretty beat.

Wheels. Everything I need is on the way for the lift install. Just need to go get some backup bolts just incase I destroy the old ones trying to get them out. Knowing my luck and the fact that my jeep has lived in MD its whole life means I will definitely break all them.

Haha I though the JF loved foreplay? I got started on it and it's going to suck. Those rear leaf bolts aren't even budging. A 700ft-lb impact doesn't even flinch it. I would just hack them out but I can't find new one for the life of me. Jeep wants 60$ for all 4 which is crazy when I can order new ones from Fastenal for 20$. Got the new spring in on the front driver side with the spacer. Hopefully I can finish it up tomorrow but it's pretty difficult alone. Anyways I will keep posting pictures as I go.

dom dommm dommmm. Well its done! I think I finished it by myself in a total of 10 hours. It was definitely hard to finish alone but I managed. It looks killer now. The rear is sitting a hair higher but in the picture I have everything loaded up in the back. I got a rough measure on my driveway and with everything loaded in the the rear is 19" from center of wheel to fender and the front is 20". Enough blabbing time for pictures:

Well it seems I may need a TC drop. It rides perfect but around 55mph it makes a weird clunk/hum real quick when I let off the gas. Im assuming this is what the TC drop is for? Dont have the funds for a SYE right now.

Wrong. I found out my exhaust was loose. Got it tightened up and hopefully no more noise

Looks like it came out great!

Is your driver's side rocker dented in those last pics?

Thanks! Future plans are nothing crazy... yet. I want to get some Aussie Lockers, rock sliders, roof rack, and some other random stuff.
