thanks bro, but who the hell needs 5.25" of lift to run 35s?

I've got 2.5" of suspension lift and a 1" bl. I've considered adding maybe a half inch to it, but thats only because I want better quality coils and the shortest coils that AEV makes are 3".

so I got married on 9/19 - that means I can start dumping some more cash into the jeep! Also my wife totally suprised me and got me an anti rock as a wedding gift! (i gotta give props to Rod for that one) I got it installed last night, I've installed one before - it was easy as hell to do, figured mine would go just as quick. Of course since my jeep is only lifted 2.5" I had to cut down the links an 1 1/2" each, which isnt easy to do without a bench vise of some sort. Whatever the case, I got it done.

Now that I dont have to pay for a wedding here is what I plan to do to the jeep within the next few months:

SYE/CV shaft - been putting this one off, but I need it in a bad way
Rocker guards - see above
rear 3 link - have had this in the garage for a few months, just need to get a custom truss made up for it
homebrew belly up - this comes along with the SYE and 3 link
some sort of 2.5" progressive coils - I'm tired of the limited flex I get with the zj coils and spacers
new oil pan (mines sorta jacked up)
oil pan skid

That all WILL happen this year, this is what I WANT to do, but who knows:

5-7" rear stretch/4 link
outboard rear shocks
front F150 shock towers
fuel cell
rear corners
bilstein 5150s

I havent wheeled since July, well I rented a 4 dr JK in Aruba on my honeymoon and took it offroad, but that was hardly thrilling. As soon as James (bennettj13) gets his build done in a few weeks I am sure we will be hitting the trails hard.

You bet your *** we will be. As much as I can before wheeling is done for the year.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

sweetness! I can't wait to check it out. I keep hearing good things about those guys. It will be interesting to see the clearance inside the pan with your manual.
