Awesome Build up. I'm curious, what did you do with the T-case linkage after installing the UCF skid? Did you simply adjust it, or do you have an AA adapter bracket to take the mount off the body?

Thanks

I am really happy with my ucf skids. I installed a MML and BL with the UHCS from UCF. I did not do anything to the transfer case linkage. I was afraid I would have to. But there was no reason to. I did not even adjust any thing and mine works fine. Here is a picture or 2 of the transfer case after the TT Install. Thanks

Got more done on the hood tonight. I decided to fix some more dents before I paint later this week.

There is alot more pictures in my write up of Highlining a Hood back to factory edges for those of you that do not like door edge trim on your hood.







I am gonna address the inside tomarrow evening at work. I wil need to cut a piece for the front and smooth the seam along the sides.

Got the 2.5 in springs installed in the front tonite. The front is still an inch lower than the rear.

I also got the passenger side 1/4 cut out . I think i will like the way it looks.

Pictures to come.

Take the BB you have and but it 1". That will work well for leveling it.

If more weight is going in the front, I would wait personally. Find out what it will be like when the springs sag into position, and then put the spacer in.

The above pics were taken before I swaped the BB and 4cyl springs. No picts of the 2.5 in the front and BB in the rear w/stock.
I had to give the BB back to a friend, or I would be running the stockand BB in back with the 2.5 RC springs in the front. It looks real good that way.

Trust me I know the feeling...I went to 35"s, then Metalcloaks, then longarms in less than a month. I couldn't wait to get it out and see how it went. Now I still gotta do my bumpstops, but I'm so sick of working on it I've put them on the backburner.

Yeah I am really getting tired of always working on this thing. Seems like every spare minute goes to the Jeep. I just really want to go wheeling. I missed 3 trips already.

Most current photos. I fit the RH side corners today. Transfered the cut lines with a sharpe. I can cut now them and prep for paint.



This is with the BB and 4cyl springs in the rear. and 2.5 inch RC springs in the front.

Looking good man. How do the new springs ride comparatively?

Also, nope. I am still looking.

These springs are great comparativly speaking. They front was so harsh with the BB I thought I was driving a lowrider toyota with the torsion bars cranked down. Been there. They are used. The JF member I traded bought them new December.

Keep looking man you will find a deal. I really got screwed when I bought this one. The condition was horrible and the deal was not that good. I was just wanting a Jeep real bad again. I don't even want to total the money spent so far. I have not even had it a year yet.
