Your Jeep really looks great! Gives me a really good idea of what mine is going to look like. I just put on my JKS 1.25" BL and 1" MML yesterday, and my RC 2.5" lift should be delivered this week! How do you like your Maxxis Bighorns? I'm hoping to go 33X12.50 also, any rub issues at all?

Thanks. No rubbing at all. Looks to be enough room for 35s. If i were to get tires again it would be Kevlar MTRs. The Bighorns are great offroad though!

Ordered up a full set of short arms today. Currie arms were $745, RC was $600 something. Ended up gettinga sweet deal on RockKrawler arms. $575!! Its good to have conections

So in the next week or so:

Currie HD Steering
Currie Antirock
Rock Krawler control arms
Poison Spyder Rockers
Poison Spyder Spyderlocks
New windshield brackets (old ones are rusty)
Fix a bad pinion bearing in the D30
New Luk clutch
New Fuel pressure regulator in fuel pump
I trimed the flares and they need to be repainted
Fix drivers front fender. Has some trail rash that should be fixed.
Ordered some Dynabeads. Plan on doing 8oz in each wheel tire combo.

These showed up today, along with my new hinges. The paint guy picked up the hinges before I could snap a picture today.

Really? In my neck of the woods we seem to slide on trees and bend our soft top frames. Is it the look or a function thing that you dislike?
