hey man I was just reading through your thread and I saw that you used the rustoleum epoxy appliance paint and I was wondering how it held up? UV durability? Do you think it would be okay for large items i.e. Corners and fenders?
2006Sport - All I did on the wheels was clean them real quick and paint. A little scotch brite pad where the powdercoat was still all there too. I used a can of Duplicolor Wheel Coating left over from when I attempted to paint my Classic Locks.
Yukon- I found the doors on a local club forum. They were in very good condition, and I paid $200 for the set. I got a good deal, and sorry but they aren't for sale.
Recoil- The appliance epoxy has held up pretty well. I haven't given my rear bumper (where I used the paint) a good clean lately, but I don't believe there has been much fading. It looks as you would imagine a rear bumper would after about year of weathering and wheeling. I would use it again. I don't want to tell you it will be perfect for corners, but I believe it would be fine; Not sure it would be any better than regular rustoleum though.
JHendrix - Thanks for the compliments, I appreciate it! Your rig is coming along great as well. The Rokmen skid actually was bent slightly, but nothing too serious. That ledge was just a stupid idea...
i was wondering if you could give me some input on how you feel about that OME lift? im considering buying one of these and just wanted some feedback about it. also what control arms where you running before you got the RE ones? if they were aftermarket which set do you like better? how does the lift perform? and how is the on road handling and ride?
thanks for any help

Well, when I bought the jeep, the OME lift was already on it, so I can't compare it to stock. As far as I know though, the ride feels good, I can't complain. Others have noted how good of a ride it is compared to their's. Before the RE arms, I just had stock arms and I don't recall feeling much of a difference after the change. Thanks for the compliments.
rti numbers are based on the distance up the ramp campared to the wheel base so if he has the same amount of flex as a swb jeep because the suspension is the same then his rti number would be lower but actual flex not so much
