The above pics were with the factory springs in and there was no way they were gonna work. Put my 4.5" springs in and looks like I'll have plenty of clearance and still not be to tall. Approx 23.5" to the bottom of the frame and 73ish to the top of the window. Still debating if I want to do this......

The jeep has mostly been sitting for about the last year, spent the last couple days getting it back in the road.

Found a used carrier and swapped the spider gears







Back together and all cleaned up and ready to go



The damage








Battery took a dump from sitting, Interstate batteries adjusted it out and gave a deal on an Optima



Front calipers also locked up on it so replaced those also
