Might be picking up a Rugged Ridge SYE for $100 from a forum member
http://www.driveoffroad.com/rugged-ridge-18676-60/

Edit: Picked it up today (Friday), will grab a new National seal since I've read that the one that it comes with is notorious for leaking.

The SYE is gonna make it a lot better to drive. Have you gotten the adjustable upper rear control arms or rear CV driveshaft yet?

If you get a front driveshaft for cheap, you can get it cut down for the rear. A lot of guys in the LSJC say to go to Drive Train of Mesquite for DS work. I would do this ASAP, you won't regret it.

Really I don't have any vibes, I just bought the rear uppers before I did my lift because I assumed I would have em. I'm kind of collecting parts for now. Can they just make the front ds a CV?
Got the rockers in today, I'm not in the mood to paint these...

You will be amazed at the difference when you install everything. The front DS is a CV DS. Send them sliders to me, I want some.

Haha no no, I want them. I just don't like painting. My fenders didn't go so well, good thing it's a Jeep so they're allowed to look a little rough.

Uhhh...I don't think so. I was talking about on a spot or two the can sprayed out gooey and on another spot styrofoam got stuck to it so messed it up there. It's not bad honestly, I'd just like to do a better job.

Do you rough sand between coats? If not try using 120 grit between coats for a nicer look each time around. Also try spraying on a test piece to get the initial spray out.

No I didn't sand anything. Just some cleaner on the bare metal. I'm alright with some imperfections honestly, I'm just a noob with a rattle can.

He's spraying Duplicolor bedliner, which has micro pieces of rubber in it. You'll get some globs as you spray, but you can smooth them out with your finger between coats.
