OK, that was freakin hilarious Rod. Aussie was in and working a couple hours ago. I have air, I just don't have an air impact so I borrowed one, cranked up the pressure real good, and cranked the ring gear bolts right out. The rest is history.

Ordered 60 LED tails and trimmed the rear Rubi flares today. I'm EXTREMELY impressed with my trim job if I must say so myself. It's almost flawless. Pictures will come.

PS, I REALLY hope my new arm/joint show up by Friday.

If it comes in on friday, bring it and the jack over, we'll put it in, and I'll borrow the jack to put in those currie bumpstops finally. lol I might even be able to put the new brakes on. We'll see.

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.

Of course you are. I never mind extra hands. As long as you don't **** **** up. It's plain to see that I can do that on my own.

Pics Of the trimmed rubi flares?? I would really like to try to find a stock set of flares or rubi flares for mine to trim and then paint to match the jeep. But i can't bring myself to trim the original sahara flares on it because if i mess up I basically have no where to turn. I'd love to see the new trimmed ones with some measurements on the cuts you made.I know my jeep isn't getting any taller except maybe a spacer to level out the winch but would definitely love to see a little more tire clearance under the fenders.

Also do you have any clearance issues with your diff cover and front track bar? I've got a solid diff cover and it hits my track bar at/around the frame mount. I had an auto-zone replacement on there for a while but i have gone through 4 or 5 of those because the frame mount (which i think is a TRE ) gets worn out in about 3 months. Which I assume is from hitting the diff cover and damaging both. But i just replaced it with an Advance Auto MOOG track bar I'm hoping will last longer because it seems like a quality TRE and bushings.

Oh and what about the rear diff cover, my SOLID rear cover rubs my gas tank skid right on the smooth part above where the word SOLID is outlined on it. Do you have any issues there or since your arms are all adjustable is it pulled out of the way of hitting?

Between school, work, and a buddy's going away party, I haven't had any time to finish up the other flare or bolt the finished flare on. I'll post pictures when I get it done, which will likely be tomorrow. The finished flare looks great.

About the front track bar and diff cover--I run the Rockcrusher diff covers front and rear, which are considerably lower profile than stock. Even when I was running too-little bump stop up front, the diff cover and track bar never once met. At full bump (both sides), there was less than 1/8" between them and now that I've added another 2" of bump stop (and 1" of lift up front so I now have 1" more bump stop relative to lift height than I did with the RC coils) to prevent the tires from rubbing the fender lip, they will be totally safe. I would advise you to quit wasting money on track bars and properly bump stop the front end or get rid of the Solid diff cover. The rear diff cover and gas tank get very close at full bump but don't touch. If I had a Solid cover, they would definitely touch. It's taken A LOT of trial and error to maximize wheelbase while getting the bump stops perfectly set with no interference anywhere. When all is said and done, I'm @ 94" wheelbase with 4" of up travel up front and 4.5" in the rear with no interference anywhere. I'll take some good pictures for you after I get everything buttoned up this weekend.

Is this still with the 2.2 RC shocks? I cant remember if you had the 3.25" kit or the 2.5" kit. Not sure if the shocks are different between kits. I also assume you have hacked that gay *** rubber snubber off of the shocks? I'm curious as to what bumpstop you are using front and rear since our rigs are setup almost identical.
