Good! I'm pretty impressed with this install. I thought all hope was lost after the first few fuses...

My gf took one look at what that grinder did to my finger and said, "ooh that definitely needed stitches". Pfffff, not.

Sorry for the crappy pic, but yes you can still use the remote. The switch is just tied into the controls.

You would actually be able to do quite a bit around there, just don't follow me, your Jeep cant get any up travel on her

Not to high jack or anything but I keep up with these guys and was the only one not to get stuck. Its not all about the rig, its about how well the driver can handle his rig. Notice the stock little jeep, thats mine....on 30.5 inch tires

Those other two have selectable lockers front and rear? The 31" tires aren't even the worst part. I have 1.25" of uptravel before my control arms hit my V8 engine mounts. No CB. No muffler. Interior is half torn apart and there are wires everywhere. I don't even have fenders.
