Gorgeous WK, man. You're starting to prick my conscience about the state my WJ is in. Time for some good cleaning, maybe a little more work on the DIY bodywork.....

Great build!! looks fantastic..
How is everything holding up? still nice and tight?
Any random issues coming up caused by the lift?

No issues! Ive driven it pretty hard, and even have done an 8 hour trip to traverse city and then back with no issues.

Yeah...it was tough but worth it. The ride quality is amazing, and its not just spacers. I talked to a ford dealership owner about the jeep and he said he would definetly take it in on trade and that its not too jacked up. (not that im going to sell it or anything, just small talk)

it all starts as small talk hahaha
thats how i went from a 2001 Z06 to a 2000 wrangler hahahahaha
I keep looking at the OME heavy duty lift for the heavy duty part, winch roof rack alot of stuff in the back, towing.. Does the superlift squat much with a good load? say three grown adults in the back seat? or a random trailer with an ATV on it? nothing major
