Finally got my rears in . Still waiting to get my long arms installed -_-

Put new 7.5 inch coils in front, MSD coil, 10' travel 5150's with BPE when I finish making them. Pics coming soon

I ran into a problem with my Solid diff cover. It didnt like my rugged ridge steering so I had to grind the solid peice off. Sucks but oh well

So a little update, Jeep was hit in front of my house by a drunk driver.. The guy didnt have insurance, a license, and the plates on the car was from a different vehicle -_- Lawsuit $.$

Pulled the lower control arm mount out of the frame, but it didnt damage the frame as I initially thought
Long arms are going on tonight and tomorrow and the frames being plated just in case

Thankfully he hit the tire and it took most of the impact and crushed the stock uppers other than that hopefully no other damages
