Jerry, I think James is probably going to want to drive it for a few days before he hands it over to someone else again.

He wouldn't be leaving it here just pulling into the garage and pulling out an hour later. I know this because Tyler knows this.

Tyler has been talking to Lilly too much. Besides I'm sure James would like you to go back and remove all the Vampire clips you used, and use the connectors like he wanted.

Uht Ohh.... Looks like drama. I guess everyone wants The Pumkinator so much now. James, you better watch out, the fighting has already began, you better make sure one of them doesn't try to steal your baby. I guess it is only working out this way since you now have one AWESOME TJ almost complete.

No drama there. We've been friends since we were kids. They just bicker like that. I'm not worried about it getting stolen either, I've got insurance. lol Thanks again for the compliments.

For those interested, I'm thinking about the Bilstein 5150 shocks or possibly the Rancho 9000's. I can't afford to do coilovers up front yet. That's phase 2.

Since I have to buy different shocks anyways, and I've decided that I'm going to do what I can to increase shock travel while I'm at it (the rears are now outboarded ahead of schedule), I'm debating on doing something akin to coilover hoops up front to raise the upper mounts. I'm thinking it wouldn't be such a bad thing to have done for down the road. I don't know. Maybe I'm crazy. But in my head it seems like an easy way to get a lot more shock up front. Thoughts?

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.

No problem. Yes the tubes are 4.5, and the wheels are the stock JK Moabs. They are 7.5" wide with 6.5" of BS. Let me know whatever else you'd like to know.

Did your swaylok fit ok, or did you have to mod anything to get it to work?

The swayloc fit fine. It took some figuring out the new swaybar mounts on the axle but it is just fine so far.

what about F150 shock towers up front James? You can get em dirt cheap at Napa and you'll get 4" more travel with em.
