Those are both great tires. i've never had a set but i would love a set of cooper stt's. I might get a set of BFG km2's. I like the look of them and I've heard nothing but good things about BFG. but i won't be needing a new set of tires for a long time

what would yall think if i got this bumper. im getting one practically given to me with a winch already in it for about 200 dollars. if the winch doesn't even work so be it. the bumper originally cost 500 dollars and comes with a 9.0 super winch.

Just drove to Dillon to pick up my springs. they are a little rusty but they look like nothing is wrong with them. nothing a good paint job wouldn't fix, and i should have pictures of it up by Saturday. I'm gonna install them on Friday, and tomorrow im going to go pick up my bumper and winch from Chris tomorrow. should have it installed by about 5 oclock tomorrow. Only problem is the winch needs a new remote, and i don't think my lights will mount on it seeing that i used the stock mounts to mount them.

The only thing I'm wondering is if i should order a 3/4 inch spacer and install it just so it will sit a little more level.

Can't wait to get started on this stuff

Just put on the bumper i was telling you about. bought it for 200 dollars! with the winch and everything. the guy just didn't plan on using it and could care less about making anymoney off of it. He bought a jeep with it already on it just to slap some rockstars and nitto's on it. He wanted a show jeep.

Here are the springs i bought on monday. They are pretty used but they are 3 inch springs. There's a little bit of surface rust but im going to the store to buy some primer paint and sand paper. I'm thinking about red.

to day since it was about 55 degrees out side and i had an abundace of newpaper i decided to spray paint my fender flares, started by sanding them down and taping them off. Then used a can of valspar plastic paint and did 3 coats. i probably should've gotten flat black but the gloss doesn't bother me



he looks very angry

Ok i finished putting my lift on after 4 days of work after school. The springs are a little bigger than i expected. Since my winch made my front end sag so much i decided to leave a 2 inch spacer up front. but not that its done it squats in the front and i don't like it to much. i ordered a drop pitman arm, track bar relocation bracket and a 3/4 spacer to lower the front a little. im also gonna drill the front track bar. here's how it looks sofar

Today put the new 3/4 spacer in the front replacing the 2 inch spacer i had in there. got ready to take the bolt at the end of my track bar out and i ended up stripping the torque patern using my impact wrench. so tomarow i have to cut the bold off using a sawzall and then redrilling the track bar bracket. installing the rear track bar bracket. after i'm done with all that i'll probably take it to get it aligned.
