I know, it's hard to take one in the garage. Once I get it backed out I can get a good shot from all directions.

Been busy with work and house / honey do list

Here are some updates:

Got the spare tire carrier fitted, painted, and installed.

Wired up the rear tail lights, new reverse lights, and the tag light.

Got the gas cap back installed so now it is technically drivable in front wheel drive.

I bought a 60" hard brake line with the flares and fittings already in place. I bought a cheap bending tool for $10. Today I plan to get the new hard line installed and fit up the rear fenders.
I talked it over with the wife and she approved the new front fenders. They have been ordered. She is ready for it to be road worthy as she is getting jealous of all the jeeps going topless in and around savannah.

What front fenders are you installing? Which brake line did you replace? Jeep looks sick nasty BTW.

I went with the genright generation three 4" tubes in steel. The flares will match the rear flares. My smittybilt tubes are 3". I would also have to take off about 4" of my rockers to use with my smitty's where as the genrights tube flare is shaped differently. I should only have to notch maybe an inch. I plan to try and sell my smitty's front and rear as a package on Craiglist.

I bought a 3/16" hard brake line from pep boys. It goes between the two calipers on the 8.8. It was 60" in length and already had double flares and fittings. All I had to do was bend it. The line cost me $8 and a cheap bending tool cost me $11. Not bad if you ask me. It beats the old d30 one I was using. Now the line is fitted and tied close to the axle profile rather than floating above it and straight across.

Thanks Lou. I'm ready to get her finished and take her for a spin. I need to find a place to flex out the rear end to measure for my rear driveshaft.

I'm thinking a gulches trip or maybe even uwharrie in November for my birthday. What do you think? Nacho and Kevin would probably come to the gulches but I doubt they would come all the way to uwharrie. I need to get involved in a jeep club so I can meet some people that ride.

Took her out for a spin for the first time. These tires ride rough until about 30mph. The Mickey T's rode much smoother. It feels super tall but I think once the springs settle some it will feel better. I know the 4" total stretch doesn't look like much but i want to let it sit next to my buddies to really see the difference at some point.

In front wheel drive, I was impressed that it rode smoothly. The tires like to wonder a little in the front, I need to make the hydro assist steering my next upgrade to control some of it. Either that or install a temporary steering damper. Got my sisters boyfriend to help me use a motor hoist to measure for rear driveshaft.

I told Sylvia what tire size you have compared to mine and her response was..."It's just 2 inches".

Tell her that it's how you use those additional 2 inches that counts

Haven't done much to the jeep lately. Been doing house/yard work. I did get the garage cleaned up and even got a few goodies.

My dad had an extra window unit air conditioner and I replaced the 1980 model that was in my garage. The original owner had it sticking through the brick wall towards the alley. It's awesome to close the garage door and work on the jeep in 70 degree to a when it's 90 outside.

Also found a coupon in one of the magazines for a welder cart from harbor freight for $35. I was able to fit the welder and the plasma cutter on it. Makes it much easier to move around the garage.

Few to-do items at this point:
1) still waiting on front fenders so not going to install rocker guards yet
2) need to clean up rear fenders and paint them
3) fix slow lower radiator hose leak
4) replace 5" section of gas line near tank that is now leaking due to dry rotting hose.
5) need to measure and build bump stops front and rear.
6) order rear driveshaft and output parking brake

Still looking great man! Since you have new fenders coming, what's the plan for the old ones? If nobody has spoken for them, they're just about what I'm looking for...

I was actually looking at selling the front and rear together on Craigslist,but they aren't spoken for yet, I was waiting till I got the front ones removed. You need some?

Got a few things done this morning but now pictures yet.
1) fixed my radiator hose and gas line
2) took off my front fenders, ready for new ones, according to tracking number they should be here Monday.
3) painted rear fenders and ready to bolt up.
4) fabricated some rear bump stops. Just need to weld them in place.

Will take some pics and post ASAP.
