Even if you go with the standard OME lift that uses the trac bar brackets I think you still have to drill a few holes .

The two most difficult parts of putting on my lift were getting the time away from the kids and taking off the front shocks .

Not much tech , but I did get my new stickers done . I like the old Renegade script as I daily drove one when I was younger . So with the flat fenders and cj style turn signals I went with this . I also am making some of the old school Willys 4wd stickers too .

If I get lucky I might get my hood repainted this weekend ... but I am betting on having to knock out some honey dos .

I sent a picture of an old CJ to the sign shop and asked them to change the script to Rubicon vs the traditional Renegade . I have new ones being made with some extras added in

Those Rubicon stickers are cool! I was looking for the old Willys 4 wheel drive sticker for my Jeep also. Found some on e-bay for $10 I'm thinking about getting. Nice LJ by the way. Like what you've done so far.

Thanks , version 2 is even better . I will pick it up at the printers when I head back south . If you want one of the old school 4wd stickers I will sell you one for the same they cost me which is $5.00 . They are a pick type sticker and I will post a picture of it when I get back . I only wanted one , but I had to take ten as the rest would be waste .

pm sent


After checking out the sticker on the hood I decided to add 5 more inches to the length to better fill the area . New stickers should be ready this week .

Not much other tech this weekend besides this .



I went to a buddy who has a powdercoating shop and I got the bug . So when this setup became available I jumped on it .

Next trip home I hope to weld up the cage and I think I am going to add some more tube to the rear half . Thats all for now due to being stuck on the road for the next 10 days .

Maybe ? All depends on how this one comes out . This is the last cage I bent up .

It was for a buddies samurai , it will be nice having the extra room in the LJ to make things fit .
