After I changed my Diff fluids decided to throw the covers in a blast case and clean them up before painting them Burnt orange.

After I got tired of staring at my cracked front bumper, My Jeep came with, I decided I liked it better removed until I build a new one. In the mean time I cleaned prepped and painted all the metal where the bumper covers and surrounding area with Black Hammer-tone paint.

Somehow got lucky enough to score 4 dark slate Moabs off of a New JK with 5 -255/75R17 BFG MT KM's for $495.00 still with the rubber nipples attached.(Craigslist score of the week.)
Those are my OME HD springs in the back with the Bilstiens I received courtesy of Kolak.(Great Customer service)

Nice ZJ. It looks like you did exactly what I'm looking to do. Just wondering how much you've spent so far, and if you were planning on a track bar to center the front axle?

Anyway, nice ride.
