Got to use the lights too. Not much hood glare at all. They worked well.

That last pic was the first time I was able to get the front tire off the ground since I installed my lift lol! I can take about an inch of bumpstop out in the rear if I wanted to which would give me a bit more droop

I believe EVERY ball joint in this pig is bad. I cant wait to get all my new parts. Its gonna drive so much better. Im beginning to get a loud clunk in the front front something. I think my steering linkage is hitting my axle right under my sway bar link pin. Along with numerous other clunks from other ****

x2! LOL I was digging around the front end and found every control arm bushing is dry rotted, in the rear not only are they dry rotted but a couple of the control arms have flakey rust areas. I ordered all eight control arms, new axle and track bar bushings. Just replacing the front sway bar bushings made a difference!

Put some mesh in behind the grill. It looks pretty schweet.

Welded on my Track Bar bracket up front. It was making a terrible noise. Installed my rear sway, when I go over big dips fast it rubs my drive shaft. Sucks. Im gonna see what I can do to fix that later. I just take it slow for now

I know you said you used 2x2" square for them but is that steel or..?

Yeah dude, there is a steel yard down the road from me that I pick up scrap from for way cheaper than new. Its just some plain ol steel, nothin fancy. Get thicker walled stuff if its available and itll hold up well

Home Depot. You get a giant roll in the home and garden section. You could do like 12 grills with the amount of material they give you on those rolls

My ZJ has the little 242 in it. Will all that steel plus my steel brush guard weigh it down too much? Im a little nervous about welding a bunch of steel on the side for my l6 to lug around
