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:




The Flop that help fun phase 2 of the build:








Taken today: 11/7/2010

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.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.
