No real bites at selling the Jeep. Maybe I will have to just keep it and put some more goodies into it

Going in right now is a Double Din CD player housed by a navigation unit bezel for a clean fit
I will post pictures of that, and the rest of the CB mount stuff I did.

Things on the list are:
That sweet switch panel from Saguaro4xComponents
OBA
Air Bags in the rear springs for a better ride when towing

I really want to get a portable winch eventually. Maybe after I can get a trailer.

Does anyone have any other good ideas?

Also, I have been getting a clunking sound when I turn sharply. Have any of you other Superlift guys had this problem?

I want to replace the exhaust. And when the big longass muffler is gone, it would be sweet to put a long tank down there under a skid plate. Has anyone done this?

Well, no ones seems interested in buying it. Maybe the price was to high, but I'm not ready to sell it for much less.

So, I guess that means I am keeping it. Of course, that also means it is getting a few upgrades to keep me happy. I am going to detail the jeep tomorrow and I am getting the skidplates powdercoated because they have a little rust. Also, I have a CB in now and am putting in a new CD player. Hopefully some things to come soon are air bags in the rear coil springs for towing, an intake, and OBA.

Its been a long time since I actually posted pictures, so I'll take a few after it is detailed tomorrow

Yup, they fit great. I did the pinch weld mod to fit 285/70R17s without any rubbing. I recommend them with the superlift

Thanks! Now you have me procrastinating on my finals. I have been doing a lot of work to my XJ and just DDing the Grand. I should really get around to posting pictures on here soon though. I kind of got lazy.

Nice rig, Nice build. You should be proud of what you have accomplished. You seem to have a talent for seeing the build and completing that task.

Good job man.

CNC4X4 meets up like this, I believe they are headquartered in Brier Creek. (I'm from Raleigh)
