Scotch on hail rocks was a good idea. And G, you can come to the bayou and see what it is like.... You might even want to stay.

What's not to like about down on the bayou?

(shameless plug of our old secret wake boarding spot on the atchafalaya basin)



Here's a pile of anti-rock that came in the mail. It's in perfect condition, barely looks broken in

Yeah I'm stoked. It was one of those upgrades that I knew I would get eventually but was a little further down the list under things that needed immediate attention.

Got a shipping notification for my currie ultimate steering kit on Friday so it should be here this week!


So this week I'm going to try to tackle the following

Remove passenger side rear coil spacer (already removed driver side)
Get dash bezel back on (temporary)
Install currie badness (pending shipment)
Install anti-rock

I'm going to be redoing the center dash bezel. I bought another one off the classifieds because I had a few minor issues with how it turned out so I'm going to take a mulligan.

Also eventually I need to install my ARB compressor so that is in the semi-short term plans as well.

Sounds like some fun times to come. Which arb compressor did you get? I kind of want to paint my dash bezel to match the jeep.

it's weird it seems like the more i work on it the more there is to be done

i just got the small ARB one for now. eventually i will run a large OBA system but until then this one will work fine for actuating the locker only.

Got the spacer out yesterday and got the dash back in so I drove it home and to work today.

So here's how it currently sits. I believe the rear springs are 4.5" and the fronts are 5.5" and no body lift
