There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

So. In the mean time I've been prepping the jeep for lining. I'm just waiting for payday!!!!


Found this in the front seat last night leaving a bonfire. Very good laugh.

Yep, lotta prep work. Just finished the Monsta in mine yesterday. Haven't checked the outcome yet, hopefully mine comes out ok. There was no rain in the forecast, but as soon as I finished up it started to rain, luckily I was able to get a tarp over the Jeep before it started.

Ahh, I wish I had a garage! I'll post up some pics tomorrow, as its raining once again...

Took a peek tho, and it looks good from what I can tell, kinda hard to screw it up too bad anyway.

Nice build so far

As for alignments and adjustments, it's super easy to do and all you need is a tape measure and a couple sockets.

Stu Olsen and 4x4xplor both have great write ups on how to do alignments. Stu does more then needed with using spray paint and marking the tires, all I do is I bungy a long skinny board to the outsides of both front tires and measure from the ends of the tires. If you ever want to give it a shot and need help then let me know, I don't live far from you.

It's a great maintenance skill to learn since your steering should be realigned after every wheeling trip.
