Stock:



Tires and Lift:





The antirock gives a bit more body roll on the road, but I can make a quick lane change...like avoiding an object in the road...without fear. It takes a bit more to get into now. The wife likes it, so that's a plus. I'll take some measurements tomorrow to see what I gained compared to where it was when I started.

I believe the bumper is supposed to be here next week, not sure when I'll get it on. I may wait a week, since I have the last two weeks of the year off.

So how do you like the ride of the OME compared to stock?

I am so Jealous. Sure looks great. Looks very drivable and wheelable.

I would recommend a Savvy Underarmor for sure. Then some Rokmen arms.

Paint it Black and I would have to know your address.
Just kidding.


Looks so Awesome . See you in March. You are going to Badlands on March 4-5.

Subtle was what I was looking for actually.

The HD springs are riding great right now, I'm sure once I get bumpers and the winch on it'll soften up a bit. I have a feeling I'm really going to like the Currie antirock.

The Savvy under armor and Rokmen arms will have to wait for "Stage 2"....(ie: more money )

As long as I'm not on call I'll be there. Hopefully I'll be there before then too.

It's so cute!

Looks good bro. Let's go beat on it!

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

I forgot to mention, when the antirock was installed we had to cut 1" off of the threaded rods to make them work.

Looks very good. How tall are you? Trying, after seeing you leaning on it, to visualize how tall it sits.

I purchased an 06 Rubicon 1 month ago with 8500 mile on it and intend to keep it close to stock height also. I've thought about 1 size larger tire though and small lift.

I'm 5'8" tall...maybe 5'10" in those snow boots. For a weekend wheeler / daily driver I think I'm going to really like the direction I'm taking this.
