LOL guys. my JK is hijacking the LJ thread.

please lets keep this all LJ. I know it will serve well for someone doing research for a build or to keep track of this thread

I promise to have a full blown right up about everything I did to it in a separate thread! I'm just to lazy to do it now there is to much done to it for a 1 hour right up. so bare with me please


so I have an update with no pics.

I ordered RCV front shafts, gussets and sleeves by EVO, big brake kit from teraflex, 5:13 gears, pro steer balljoints from dynatrac, Reid racing Knuckles. and an ARB locker for the front.

started stripping the rear axle brackets but didn't have enough time to finish. once done, I will order parts for it as well.


glass was supposed to go in yesterday but the glass company wants the top on the Jeep to install it. so that the top doesn't flex and break the glass

the paint on the top looks great! I'm really happy about how it turned out. I think i'm going to paint the JK top to match this top.

I think that I'm going to have the guys at the shop tig weld the truss on the axles. I think it will be cooler!

more updates soon.

Thanks guys

as far as an update goes.

I stripped the rear axle. gears brakes shafts and all of that is out. and started taking all the brackets off.

i'm dropping the Jeep of tomorrow to get the glass for the hardtop installed (they need the Jeep to install the glass).

Wheels should be done from powder coat. wheels armor bumper and axles should all match in color. it will be black but the same color code.

no pics for tonight but will have some next week for sure.

Thanks for all the feedback so far
