Tonights progress....more cellphone pics....







Got the antirock on, as far as I can without the jeep on the ground. Installed the steering stabilizer and put the front tires back on.

My friend had a busy day, and wasn't able to spend alot of time on my jeep until after 5pm, and some of that time was spent helping me with things up front. The rear upper shock bolts all broke off, all need to be drilled out and re-done. Hopefully tomorrow will be better than today was. I'd like to get this sucker on the road by the weekend......I kind of need it. I'm not going to get too bent out of shape, because there's no way I would be able to do this in my garage.

Day three of the lift install. I sure hope things go better today. There are two bolts left to deal with, then the shocks should be able to go in. I'm about to be in a pickle...I need the jeep. Part of the reason I bought a new one was so I wouldn't have to deal with it being out of service for long periods of time.....so much for that.

I have a dentist appointment this morning, then I have to go to work, so I hope my friend is having a better day than he had yesterday.

Hey, if push comes to shove...you can drive it without shocks. It will be very bouncy, but its doable.

Hopefully it goes better today Jeff, I know when I did mine it took only two nights but I had none of the typical problems (aka shock bolts).

On a side note, how does that yellow show salt? Looking at getting a new JK and can't decide between Yellow and Mango Tango. I figured you would have gotten red again for the "memories".

It's still not done, but it was sitting on it's own weight so I snapped a couple of shots....

Here it is with just the tires:



Lift on, kind of, still needs the rear shocks....





Things seem to be going better today.....so I'm hoping.

please report how the Anti-rock and the OME lift work together. I am thinking about the Anti-rock to add to my OME HD kit. i would assume this combo would be great together.

nice looking rubi!!!

Crappy cellphone picture...done:



They ended up lifting the body off to get it done right, and in doing so they screwed up my 4wd shifter, so I took it back....

Looks good though. Let us know how she drives over the next few days with the tires and lift. I want feedback on those because I think they may be my next set of tires.

I already like the tires better than the old MTR's, and hopefully I'll have it back to drive over the next few days.

I've got the jeep back, it's all done. Linkage just popped out. I hit the interstate, did 80mph, no drive line vibes!

The wife and I are going Christmas shopping, pictures will have to wait.
