So my buddy at work had a old set of shock extensions from a f350 that he gave me and I made them work on my rig.........Its a band aid for now and it lets me use the full range of my front shocks. I also cut the rear wraps off my front springs to help aid in spring separation!

So after having these little back up light sitting in my center console for almost a year I decided it was time to do something with them. They are more or less just for letting people know I am backing up on the trail, out of parking spots etc. they do give a little light offs high is welcome and I am glad I for have to see them sitting in the jeep any more!

So I am going to make a little list of what I am going to be getting/doing to the jeep in the next couple of months!

-front dana chromo shafts, gusset the c's, alloy usa axle tube seals, and maybe a truss.
http://www.ringpinion.com/b2c/Produc..._Gear_and_Axle

-rear chromo shafts/c clip eliminators, and maybe a full spool (undecided on this)
http://www.ringpinion.com/b2c/Produc..._Gear_and_Axle

-tera 4.1

-metalcloak full armor (front fenders, sliders, rear quarter guards, and 6 inch flares)

-37 I was aiming for pitbull rockers but just found out they are back order with no eta on them so I might just end up with toyo's on 10 wide wheels!

-I also plan on finishing the rear cage!

Love the jeep . I think i read you were going to cloaks? Your jeep looks real good with the body lines and in my opinion the arched look ok from the front but the side view is hideous... Anyway very good build look foward to the rest.

I am leaning toward the over lines not that a arched but thanks, I am not a fan of the arched from the side view either!

We could discuss this all day but I think the arches are fugly with a capitol F. No offense but I don't like. Now the overlines look better but with the cost of cloaks I will never spend that much on a novelty. For that price you could buy a welder and make your own kickass fenders. By the way Ashland I think your DIY tub fenders look loads better than cloaks.
