So one of the bushings was rusted on and we had to cut it off.



And we finally got all of the junk off the front end.



Up next...cutting on the diff and cutting and welding part of the body :S

Everything put back together on one side...the other side took a few extra days because we had to order that new bushing.

While waiting for the bushing, we installed the front skid plate and brush guard.


And finally the bushing came in, we pressed it in, and got it all back on the ground.



Maybe i should just drive it around looking like this.

Next day, we jacked up the back and started pulling parts off. The instruction manual had about 4 pages of steps for disassembly for the front, only about 4 steps for the back...thank god.



Thats my friends toyota in the back ground, i love that thing. Anyone seen it out on Drummond Island?...got him a week in the hot box for taking a wrong turn

And here it is, the lift is all finished. All i need to do is go get an alignment and adjust the headlights. Also, i still have to put on a few skid plates and the computer module. Im sure this jeep isnt even close to being done yet...it will never be done.

Love the 5.7...ive won quite a bit of races with it not to much of a fan with the gas mileage. But the towing power is very nice!

Thanks also, I really dont know much about vehicles, so my friend helped me out, but made me pretty much do everything and guided me...it was really a huge learning experience!
