You know it might go ok, now that I think about it things only go wrong when it's just me and you working on the Jeep. I know it's not my direct fault(ORO sent the wrong parts, the bolt broke off while you were wrenching), maybe it's the polar opposite of 3rd times a charm. Guess you'll find out tomorrow.

Well, the machine shop just called and said they are finally getting to the Jeep now. The guy said he'd start it tonight and probably finish it in the morning. So bleh. So much for the body lift today.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

The machine shop ran into problems, so I get to keep waiting. They didn't get to it like they thought they were going to. So, they are taking care of whatever, and they said I'll get it back tomorrow. I'm tired of waiting. Here's hoping.

No TNT order yet... complications have come up. I'm working through them still. I think I should have it figured out here soon.

No Jeep today either. I called the shop twice, left two messages. Tomorrow I'm going to stop by. If they try to pull any ****, we are going to go around. I can feel it now. Just one more chunk out of my build money. With everything else going on, it's getting more and more aggravating. Grrr.

I picked up the Jeep at 3. It's done. The guy did a great job. 180 bucks total. But the guy replaced all the bolts (even the ones we did). Basically I paid 180 bucks for a MML install that took almost a full week. Meh. Either way, I met the owner of the shop, who actually ended up doing the work, and is a cool *** dude. He wanted to know if I'd bring the Jeep by when it's done. On top of that, he wants to come wheeling with us sometime. Apparently he's got dirtbikes and quads, and his buddy has a an old cutlass on a blazer frame. I suppose it's one of those things that I'll have to see to appreciate. haha

On an unrelated note, the TNT order has officially been placed. Lots of goodies there...

Front Tube Fenders 4.5" Flare
Rear Tube Fenders 4.5" Flare W/ Extended Wheel Well Opening Corners Cut for Flush LED Lights
Rocker Guard W/ Step
JK to TJ Front Axle Truss
JK to TJ Rear Axle Truss
TNT LA Upgrade W/ High Clearance Bellypan
Extended Stainless Steel Brakelines
Outboard Rear Shock Kit
Y-Link Limit Strap Kit
Custom Draglink
Custom Front Trackbar

Bob and Rod at TNT are both awesome. I can't say enough about those guys.

I also updated the first post.

I'm probably putting the BL on tomorrow. There is about 1/4" between the fan and shroud now. And I'm thinking that I'm one good bump away from fan destruction. So, the BL is currently a priority.

Awesome!!! Dude, that's the sexiest single order I've ever seen. I can't wait for it to arrive so I can rub my greasy fingers all over the beautiful welds.

It is indeed sexy. I'm going to get some of that seam sealant stuff for the tubes to finish them up all nice and pretty. That's down the road though. The tubes probably won't go on until I can take some time off, and spend a few full days working on them. I'll have to clean them up, hit them with seam sealant, grind them, prime them, pull the stock fenders, mount the tubes, pre-mount everything under the fender and drill all the holes for lights f/r, unmount all that, take the fenders off, have Rod paint them, then remount them, install the lights, and then we should be good to go. It's going to be a stressful few days. I HATE electrical work, so I am really going to try and pawn that off on someone, not going to lie. It just pisses me off to no end.

I figure the tubes will go on first. I can worry about getting the axles on and the lift in after that. Then comes the other stuff, like checking to see if the air tank will fit under the jeep, running air lines, air horns, finishing getting the winch wired up, and any of the other random **** I'm not remembering off of the top of my head.

Anyways, time to head over to do the BL.

PS, the TNT order is 720 lbs... lol the UPS dude is going to hate me forever.

I got the BL in. It took about 30 minutes (haha Connor). I screwed around forever picking up the garage and **** getting my junk and tools out of the way for my mom since I kinda took over since I've been working on the Jeep over there. I've still got a hell of a rake to the front from the winch. I'm going to need to put spacers up front. But I'm not going to screw with it until the TNT **** is all on. No pics today, it was raining like crazy, so I didn't bother. Anyways, that's it for today.

The Jeep doesn't look lowered anymore lol.
