Well i got rid of my old tires and bought some new 31x10.50's federal couragia m/t's. They are great tires, they stick to rocks great when theyre aired down. Within the next couple paychecks im going to order either currie or rubicon express adjustable upper and lower control arms

Well i got some time off from school so i decided to sand down my rusty tie rod and re-painted it, along with my drag link and track bar. Next will be my sway bar and front and rear axles, heres a few pics

Looks good. Even though I've had both of my axles all the way out I still didn't bother repainting them. Maybe I should have...

Thanks man, yea it wasnt too hard to paint them on the jeep. I just taped up my coils, brake lines, and shocks. Sanding everything was the hard part.

Well i havent posted in a while, i dought anyones following this but i have done some stuff to the jeep lately. I took my old RC hydro shocks off and replaced them with RC's 2.0s, i also put on their 2.5 steering stabilizer. I made new sway bar disconnect tabs for fast and easy disconnection. I also adjusted my bumpstops and relocated my brake lines to acheive maximum flex. I am very pleased with the amount of flex on just a 3in lift and 31's. I added some pictures of me and my little sister wheeling a local trail. I decided to paint my fake beadlocks, and recovery shackles red, and am very pleased with the outcome
