You warned me , and you were right . Do you ever add bump stops or shocks to any of your trailers?

I always love your pics and your retro rubi.

You make driving 35's daily sound awfully painless....but, you're motivating me to get my lift done.

lj's rule

ps hope you don't mind, I liked the pic so much, I aged it and sent it to my wife as a "I wish I could make my jeep look this good...."

My initial fears of driving a lot on 35's have proven to be untrue . Its easy to drive , though I do feel more drop off in 5th gear when I hit the hills now. With a re gearing in the near future that issue will be taken care of .

I do prefer to start later and work late at night , maybe I am on west coast time .


New shackles painted and installed . I now have plenty of travel and adjustability if needed .

Everything is lined up and ready to go .

Ranger center caps with a custom steel insert .



The tub is mounted and complete except for the tail lights which will get plugged in tomorrow morning . With a little luck I can make it over to DMV and get inspected tomorrow morning .

Like the look of all of those wall cabinets. Nice looking shop, and the trailer is pretty cool too I guess.
