Nice rig. Where do you wheel in wisconsin? I see that you said something about superior area, do you wheel any where else? I dont often get that far north, I usually wheel in Oconto county.
I camp all over the state. When I wheel in WI it was at McCaslin but now that is closed. Im hoping to get a lot done on my jeep this summer because I want to hit up some WI places I have never been like the pipeline, northwoods overland, apple valley, ect. Otherwise I want to make it to Gilbert, MN and Cliffs Insane Terrain in IL. I have been to the badlands many times.

The lift did come in today while I was at work!!!!
When I got home though, I noticed I only got one leaf spring. Called RC, and UPS had it, just left it in transit dammit. So now I have to wait until tomorrow for that. I want to do the rear lift first.
Also got my stuff from Advanced Auto today in the mail. Another added thing to pissing me off, the optima Red top came in damaged! What a bunch of crap. Luckily Advanced Auto in town had one in and replaced it for free (obviously).
Leaf was sitting by my door when I got home from work.
Heat and mosquitos were terrible but that wasn't going to stop me.
My brother came over later then he was supposed to but at least he came. I started before he got there.
We got the old stuff out, including my rear sway bar (finally). We got the new leafs and shackles installed. I butted up the 8.25 because I don't want to install the D44 until I do the work on it. I was going to take pictures but it got dark and I have about 100+ new mosquito bites all over the place. Didn't get the new brake lines in, but Im glad I got started. I hope the storms hold off the next couple days so I can continue whatever progress I can.
Also ordered my new tires and wheels tonight already mounted and balanced. I was going to get a set of 4 wheels from Pat, but I couldn't pass up a deal 4wd send me via email. Ordered 33x10.5x15 BFG KM2's on Procomp D Windows!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait!!!!
just found out today that my tires/wheels are going to take roughly 2 weeks to reach me. Other then that, I just picked up a XJ D44 with ZJ disk brakes and 4.88's installed from Scorp. So i'll be selling my stock XJ D44 soon.
Pictures asap I was thinking about getting their long arm but they weren't getting best reviews on here, cant wait to see yours done/see it in action.
the long arms look great!
and as far as bad reviews on shipping, just ask before you order to check on any back order. I got mine within three weeks after a minor backorder, but I was prepared for it because I asked.
to be honest, for the price, you can't beat it and I can see why it would be on backorder. I don't have any more pics right now, still in the middle of a huge install of all my parts. putting this disk brakes on my D44 on weds.
well its been hotter then hell here with unbelievable humidity. Wade and his dad are helping me install my gears starting Monday! Cant wait.
Also started a few small things that I could do inside. I started making cupholders to go over the parking brake lever and some cb install stuff. making a braket to go between the visors to hold the cb and a cb antenna mount to go over the rear brake light box. I am going to be cutting the metal tomorrow at work and hopefully paint them as well.
