Thanks guys, I am real happy with how it is coming. As far as the next mods planned, I want to get a rear bumper with tire carrier, replace stock driveshaft and get adjustalbe control arms, and regear to 4.88 and add rear ARB locker. This will take me a couple of years since I will not buy anything else until I pay everything I bought off. Every round of upgrades I put on the credit card and I pay it all off before I go to the next round. Eventually I want to upgrade the front axle to a Dana 44.

I am a huge fan of the bumper. I do a lot of woods wheeling in PA so the trails are often very tight and my fenders were taking a beating. The prerunner guard does a very good job of protecting the fenders in tight and twisty woods trails. I highly recomend it.

Just ordered an additional 1/2 inch spacer to throw on up front to make up for some of the winch and bumper sag. Also ordered teraflex bumpstops. I had some rubbing this weekend disco. This should solve the problem. I will post pics of install when they get here.

I decided to install the spacers today. I am still waiting for the bump stop extensions. Doing this install in the sun on a 88 degree day on a black top driveway was a bad idea. I feel like crap. Anyway install went ok, had to pull the track bar bolt to get the axle to drop enough. Getting the bolts to 125 ft punds of torque was a heck of a challenge with so little space to work with. My jeep sits pretty level now. I measured the rock rails in the front and the rear and they are both almost even at aprox 23 inches from the ground.
