My work has now been made easier thanks to my brother installing a lift in his new barn

Looked did a lot of searching and decided on going with a 4" Currie lift. I liked the idea of a complete lift as a kit with all adj. CA's and went with Rancho RS9000XL

Got the Lift Kit and Steering installed, and put on some 33's that I temporarily borrowed from my YJ. I wanted to see how much clearance I was going to have. My plan was to go to 35'3

Then I was able to load it up and haul it up to the sierra's and give it a test run.



Went with a buddy that I got talked into buying TJ after taking him a couple of trips.






The Currie Lift worked great and there Steering system felt tight, glade I went with quality products. There was plenty of room for 33's but 35' might be a bit to tight.

Did some searching on Craigslist and found a set of white half doors, I have been looking for a set of these at a good price for months. I had bought also off Craigslist a few months ago the Bestop Rack system brand new in the box for 1/2 price.



So now I have my half doors and top in rack system. I have made holders for doors in the past and they have worked fine but this thing is cool. I can roll the rack around the garage.

I had to trim a bit on the bumper to clear the Currie A/R and added a Skid Row steering box




Also a pic the Currie HD Steering and a Skid Row Radiator Skid, not sure I really needed this but to get free shipping I need to add a few bucks so it was the skid or shipping, so it was almost free





Since the front LCA brackets seam to be weak point I added skid plates. In think everything has worked out. I took a long time making decisions but now I am glad I took my time to get everything right.

I went for a drive up at Dorrington and I could not help myself parking next to a stock Rubi.

My wife who is not a big of off roading and who said YOUR jeep is getting to manly looking and is getting to big even said wow your jeep is looking pretty cool compared to when is was stock.



When the wife saying these kind of things It makes it easier buy more upgrades.
