Stage one of the baby hauler is complete
. I spent the weekend setting up the wife's Overland with some little mods to make it more capable as a "chase car" on the local wheeling trips we go on. Stage one consisted of RC 2" lift, RC 1 1/4" wheel spacers, 32" tires, and red painted calipers. Still drives like stock (maybe a touch stiffer), but she loves it! And just like the TJ, we are already eye-balling the next round of upgrades
. A wish list would look like a carbon fiber ram air hood, some black Racelines, window tint, an LED bar, and possibly a custom hidden winch project. First I have to sell all of the take-offs from the Tundra and WK (per the wife), then
we'll see what comes next. Fun to have a blank canvas again.
Some shots of the weekend's work:
Getting it apart:

Nothing like stripping down the new car to the bones:
Spacers and lift:
Front on.... not my favorite thing to squeeeeeze in:
The wife insisted, so how could I argue???
Rear buttoned up, ready for tires:
Front finished as well:
And the After. I'm really pleased with it now:
