Just sold them this evening. I listed everything on NC4x4-

Rokmen lower arms
*RE track bar
*RE upper arms
*Kilby gas tank skid
*XRC rear corners

*Denotes claimed, but haven't received cash yet.


I'll start uploading the stretch pics shortly. I haven't even transferred them from the camera yet....

Been waiting a while for you to finally do a build thread, Jay. I've been aware of most of the things you've done to it, but since you've moved, some are new.

Great looking rig (as always), and am looking forward to the build thread. I'm a little bummed though...most of the things you've done or have been doing, I've got sitting in my garage waiting for me! At least you're a little bit away, so I don't have to compete with yours for looks!

Let me know how the stretch comes and how it rides though - I'm very close to going with one route for the stretch, which is the way you went if I remember. Would like to know how hard it was to install, and how it rides off road.

(By the way, my wifey says to say hi to you both!)

When you changed from 33s to 35s and tube fenders were you still running the 3.5 lift??

Man we miss getting to wheel with you guys. We are going to try to go to future EJS events, so hopefully we can meet up at one!

The stretch is pretty dialed in now and rides great. Haven't wheeled it yet, still more cutting to do on the rear.

I stayed with the 3.5" springs going from 33"s to 35"s, and continue to run them on tall 37"s.



So that completed phase three of the build and it was just in time. We strapped up the TJ behind the H3 and drove 2,000 miles out to Moab, UT!

We have been to Moab many times before, but never for EJS. The event was unreal! Thousands of jeeps and it seemed like even more vendors. Special thanks to Cmoore on the board here, he made the trip an even better experience than we could have hoped for by outstanding spotting and hooking us up with his connections in the industry.

We hung out with Gerald from SAVVY and John and Larry from CRAWL Magazine, which gave my wife and I memories of a lifetime by letting us romp around in their brand new buggy. Larry ended up welding my control arm mount back so we could get home. Class act people no doubt it.

Here are a couple of shots of the rig on the trail after finishing phase 3:








The wife on Hells Gate:






Mine on Cmoore's sweet rig:




We ended up running:

Metal Masher
Behind the Rocks
Flat Iron Mesa (in reverse = harder)
Baby Lions Back
Hells Revenge
Fins-N-Things
Area BFE- Green Day

Shot of us in the CRAWL buggy at Area BFE, about to drop into the playground:

Hey man. Sick looking Jeep. This build has taken over as the inspiration for a lot of my upcoming upgrades.

I'm in the market for a front bumper at the moment. I'm really into the looks of the PSC Stinger, but I'm a little weary about picking one up because of the lack of a d ring mount. Have you had any experience where not having one has been an issue?

Thanks dude!

I have tow hooks up front and I have always hooked up to those. No problems as of yet.

There are some other bumper/stingers out there that have d-ring mounts. Clayton at Poison Spyder (no longer the owner) was really cool with me and hooked me up with a nice deal on mine, so that's why I run it.




The wife and I have a tradition: after every trip to Moab, we would spend the 6 hour drive home (to Colorado) evaluating all of the obstacles we ran, places that gave us trouble, and what we needed to mod to do it better the next time. Well, that wasn't so bad for her for 6 hours, but now she has to listen to it for the 33 hours it takes us to get back to the Carolinas


So phase 4 is under way .

The plan is for:

Aluminum beadlocks
Radial Rockers
100" Wheelbase
New armor
Mastercraft seats
Stereo upgrades


Here is a teaser pic until I can get some more uploaded....
