Just got my 2 missing shocks from Rough Country! I emailed them thanking them, they have excellent customer service! Next up before the install of my lift is getting my tires. Which happens on Friday!! I'm so excited!

Brush guard didn't fit. Bought one for a 96 thinking it would be similar enough to work, but that wasn't the case. It sagged in the front and was just not a good fit all around and looked funky. Time to re-sell it and find another one.

Looks great man! Dont beat on those shocks to hard like i did because they dont like it haha. Mine went bad after last trip from cross rutting s**t outta my xj. Which was all my fault but just letting you know. Ill be moving to skyjacker shocks next.

Not my jeep but these were some of the ruts i was flooring it over. This guy was stuck for 4 hours haha

Haha damn, I'll keep that in mind, thank you! I need to do some mandatory work on it now, Wheel bearing HUB, CV Boot, it makes a knocking noise in the back and it got worse with the lift going on. I need to get it all diagnosed. Haha I'm very anal about unusual noises, I love a good sounding car!

Haha i hear you on that last part! I also have to start chasing down some noises after i put on my new shocks. Dang jeeps and their noises! I dont have an exhaust or a v8 like you so if my radio isnt playing the noises are really obvious.

Are you done with the build or do you have more plans for it?
