Music City Flop Project
 
Here is a better update to this build. There is a ton of pages of banter in this build so I figured a condensed version will help newcomers to the forum.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/f...ition-1272067/

I started with a piece of junk I purchased off Craigslist.

After the complete paint job and 33s

I wanted a solid DD built to drive to and from the trail. I put the Jeep on 33s, then quickly sold them to go to 35s, Just days after I finished the build all but the rear D44 and the HP30. I was hit by a careless driver and flopped the Jeep on its side. Then there was a new plan to build a Jeep on 37s with a 104" WB. The rest in history dumped somewhere in the next 400+ pages.

Then the DD almost done:

Got the BL,MML and rear upper control arms installed before Installing the UCF UHCS. Succesfull install no vibes at all, No rubbing on the Tub. Only took about 2 and a half HRS.

very nice bro. I just got my UCF al UHCS today, not sure when I'll get it on but Im even more excited seeing it on your rig and that you installed it successfully without the lopro mount or any type of additional trimming. Very nice.

You may want to try finding some speed bleeders to help bleed each caliper one at a time. Makes it an easier one man job.

Speed Bleeder Bleeding Brakes Bleeding Motorcycle Brakes Automotive Bleeder Screw Brake Bleeder

I think some AutoZone stores carry them but you'd probably want to call first.
