nice armor you got there
Yep. Thanks. Just got them painted today.

Installed the Anti Rock today. Got it done in a hour but nothing fit together. Sway bar was to large for the plastic bushings, bolts were to big for the holes. Had to open everything up so it would fit. One end of the sway bar looked like it took a big hit. The splines were twisted and bent. Had to work them over with a dremel and a bastard file. Its on and works great. Have it set on the second from softest hole. My Rokmen bumper wont fit with the AntiRock. Trying to decide if I want to sell it or trim it.

I will try to get some pictures of it tomorrow. I didnt get any tonight.

I'm going to install the Currie HD steering Wednesday after work.

This is the only picture I got from my painter. Sorry for the resoloution. It is a cell phone picture. After this picture was sent he told me he was going to sand them down and reapaint. He didnt like the way the tractor paint turned out. Its funny because he is so anal about his work. I keep tellin him they are going to be full of scratches!

Looks like they cant get the Spyderlocks right. The last two weeks I've been told that they are just drilling out the locks. Now I was told that they dont have any with the right size hub to drill to 5x4.5. I cancelled my order and ordered the KMC XD222s above. They should get sent out on Monday.

Thanks. I'm thinking of painting the lock ring black, BUT havent decided if it would be wise. It will get scratched.

Really great looking jeep man.
I'd say go with the black lock rings, it will look sick.

The rokmen bumper should work with the steering setup. I would try giving Dave and Jeff a call over at Rokmen first.

Didn't. Had to cut for clearance.


Like to sell it and get a Savvy bumper and save some weight.
