Today and yesterday, I added comanche rear shackles to gain some cargo capacity, it sags too much.

And, I trimmed and painted my front bumper.

A new Rigidco fbg is on order.

Hard to believe this is the same jeep.

Newest updates. I scored some comanche rear shackles for 20 bucks.
Trimmed my front bumper, and painted it, cause I've got a rigidco fbg coming in about a month.
Relocated horns, underhood blanket, mine was never there.
Relocated vacuum canister
And it's finally at the stance I want.

Great looking rig! I put my vacuum cannister in the same spot and have the same hood vents!

Thanks man.

Anyone can do a build like this, you just need money and time. I've worked a whole lot to buy this stuff.

Yeah I will be getting a second job soon, and once my Car Payments stop I will be taking lift off. I am getting used 31" BFG All Terrains, 2" Shackles, 2" Coil Spacers, 3" RC Coils, and making a Bastard Leaf Pack, and I should be around 3-4" real soon. I gotta get all the other stuff first

I'd wait and save for a real RE lift. They include everything to make the jeep safe, and comfortable.

Besides springs, it includes
-Brakelines
-bumpstops
-Control arms

You really need those, and of course shocks, and a good adjustable track bar.
