Got my new (to me) RC coils in. they improved the ride in the rear. It will be nice to be able to get some flex back too. Installed my MML lift yesterday with Jerry and James, that took care of some vibes, I should be getting my JB SYE and RE uppers tomorrow. I also pulled an xj front DS, I'll be getting that cut and rebuilt. So the UCF belly up and all the fixins will be going in on saturday.

Last week I got some 3/16" steel cut and bent for me. I will be making some rockers, its something i've been talking about for a while, so it will be nice to actually have some.

Jerry gave me some LED turn signals for my birthday, so I now have front turn signals (after 18 months, lol) He also gave me another present, I'll let him tell you all about that one Lets just say its more motivation to change my beat up oil pan

Yeah I was using a prybar to help line the motor mount up when we were jacking it up and somehow his dipstick handle flew to the other side of the garage. Seriously i manage a shop for a living and I have never seen anything like it. So now we are going to have to pull the oil pan and get the oils dipstick out.

Where did you get that steel? Were they pretty reasonable price wise about doing the cuts and bends? One of my projects for the spring will be getting 3/16" strips to add to the top of my rockers since they don't go all the way up the door sill and don't cover the rivet holes the Sahara crap left behind. I figure since the powdercoat on these also sucks, I might as well add these while I'm taking them off and repainting them.

I dont have an after pic except for wheeling pics, had an awesome day at the badlands sunday

Didn't you say you were still getting some drive line vibes at highway speeds?

I hit it one too many times so I decided to cut it down, when wheeling around a ton of trees you need a stubby bumper
