Looking good. I need some new booms like that for the rear. Mine are just too short.

They are so cheap from besrk. $25 shipped to your door for one set. I got mine used from NHfireYj. We had a little mix up with the shipping cost and he made it all right, I can't say enough good things about him.

Not at all trying to hi-jack this thread but I'm wanting to do a soa and stretch with axle swap and all so I'm building a parts pile and my question is- should I do it all at once or is it best to just do one step at a time? Great build! Keep it coming!

I'm always "loading up" for my next upgrade. Tomorrow it is front stretch stuff.

To me it depends mostly on patients. My jeep is not my dd so I don't have to drive it to work I am lucky enough to work for a company who gives me a truck to drive. Hell my jeeps been sitting in my garage since Christmas.
Financially I can't buy all the parts I need at once so I try to do things in stages, but not do them over twice. Like when I did my SYE I decided to stretch with waggy springs so I wouldn't have to have two rear driveshafts built my jeep sat for a few months while I patiently collected the parts.
There are some things you can do in stages just make sure you have a solid plan so you don't have to redo it later. If there is one thing I hate is to have to do things twice. It depends on the person I'm a patient kind of person I don't buy it unless I've looked around and am sure I'm getting it for a fair price. Since I don't rely on it to get me to work everyday I can be this way.
What do you plan to do with your jeep what kind of terrain do you run in rocks, mud, logging roads ,mall crawler. Don't just do SOA because that what the kool kids are do'in you've got to be yourself do some research lurk for awhile check out lots of build threads and see what is working for those guys in the kind of terrain you run in.

Well like you I also have a company supplied work van but unlike you I don't want to be without my baby for weeks. I do have patience but I guess not that much. I have a few quarries round here, with logging roads, and we got a fairly decent mud pit playground area, but with some malls (mainly flea-bitten-markets) in between along with a couple where-in-the-great-heavens did the path to the fishin' hole go. I have been lurking and trying to read as many builds as I can to get a feel for what all is going to be involved in this build which in itself is a teaser since every build is different! Thanks for the advice though, I'll keep reading and listing and inventorying parts.

My patients comes with having kids, they come first! Infact last night I was planning on working on the jeep after I got my middle son to sleep, while my wife put the baby to bed. Well at 11:30pm my wife comes and wakes me up in my sons bed and asks if I could come and sleep in my own bed. lol I had fallen asleep reading him a story. Oh well may be able to work it today.

That's funny only because my kids are the ones impatient with the jeep! If it's down for more than two days I'm getting chewed out like I took away their favorite toy. And if you've ever tried to reason with kids you might as well Thanks again for the advise now- get back to building!!!

Well after installing my timing cover I messed around with grill placement again. What say Ye jf rake or no rake?? I'm leaning towards no rake myself also wondering is there is enough adjustment in the headlights bezels to get them to point straight.

No rake, white line on winch plate indicates how far forward the rake sits.

I vote rake as long as you have enough room for your winch and can adjust your headlights. Looks cool and custom!
