So I decided to sell some of my other cars to have more money for the jeep selling my 86 Cutlass Supreme im going to miss it but much happier with the jeep and probally selling my 84 Toronado too.. But im not totally happy with the coil spacers up front so after I really test them out on the 23rd and 24th when im going wheeling im going to get Rustys HD 3" coils and a Shackel to lift the rear up 1" also that way the 31s clear a little better and give me a little more height.

Time to bedline the bottom of the doors and i would pull those flares and bedline under those too. That rubber trim they came with def. traps the salt and everything. Not to mention getting that adhesive off was a PITA. Here's some pics of mine before and after

Im working on itbut the front doors are shot to under the trim is all rusted so I need doors first but yeah the adhesive under is a pain. but I got the back doors and the front fender bedlined and as for the flares the only reason I have not taken them off is all the bolts break but its on my list of to do..
And yours looks sharp I really like it i looked through your build thread a few times I like the red a lot.

During the weekend I took the Jeep out for its first test it did great but now I found things that need to be fixed.

With only a 2" lift and crawling through wet wash outs the back rubs so im getting shackels to lift the rear about a 1" to 1.5" and eventually going to get rustys 3" 180lbs coiols up front.
Going to have to fix my exhaust I hear it bouncing off the transfer case cross member.
It runs very hot going down the trails and never heard the fan kick on once thats a important fix(230 degrees)
But it ran great I replaced my o2 sensor and improved mpg greatly get 215 225 per tank instead of 170
