Good looking rig! I'm just getting going on mine too. I've had it for a while as a driver while I build my mustang into an 800 rwhp & 700+ torque street legal drag monster. Now I am moving to this project and will be on the look out for a new driver if this gets to be more toy than transport

I'm starting small with a 3.5 Rub. exp. lift and will have a similar build thread if I can get enough posts to allow photos

Haha sounds like a good plan. I'm going to most likely wait till spring to do my trimming that way I can do some more rust repair while I'm at it

I have the same plans for the 99 I just aquired.

How much did the OME set you back and where did you get it from? Would you recommend the medium or heavy duty? I have heard the OME lift is better than stock on road. What is your opinion?

And what did you paint the bumpers/trim with?

If I remember correctly the kit cost me about 850 from Quadratec. I went with the medium duty because I usually don't have any kind of extra weight in the rig. If you haul any sort of substantial weight in the Jeep or tow with it, I'd go with the heavy duty

The on road characteristics of mine are better than it was when it was stock. Nowhere near as much body roll. It just feels more stable overall, the shocks are great. It does ride rather stiff though, but I think it's a great kit

How much did your rigs upgrade cost you? And I'm interested on the flare painting you did. What all did you use?

Rims were around $200. Hooks were $75. Hitch was $200 (had it installed) Lift was $850 IIRC. Tires were used off Craigslist for $375. Baja lights were $25 at walmart.

The paint that is recommended is Krylon Fusion satin black
