Got the lift installed today. I really like this lift, just need to dial in the shocks. I got 2 1/2" in the front and 3/4" in the rear.

Got my onboard air working today. Still need to get some wire loom, clean up the wiring, and make a cover for the panel. I do want to try and also make a smaller relay bank.

That's weird, all my pictures are gone that I posted. Let me see if I can edit them back in.

Look nice, what other plans do you have for it?

I finally got some time to do a few more projects on the Jeep. I install the Teraflex big brake kit and Crown brake lines on the JK today. The pedal is soft but what a difference in stopping it made. I think I am going to grab the master cylinder to firm up the pedal. Install went fairly smooth except for 1 broken anti-squeak clip. Quick run to Pepboys and was able to finish it up. I am going to try bleeding the brakes first before ordering the master cylinder.

Started working on adding the Poison Spyder c pillar kit I got. One side is done, have to get time to finish up the other side and paint the bars. I might have an upholstery place make covers for them to match the factory pads.

Did a little Craigslist shopping this week. I picked up a set of Rubi rock rails, EVO Protek oil slid, Poison Spyder Evap skid, and a Soild diff cover. Now I just need some time to install them all before the winter comes.

Santa brought me a Smittybilt XRC8 winch and a Fox steering stabilizer this year. Just ordered a PSC Brawler lite bumper to mount it up. Hoping to have it next week so I can get it painted and installed soon.
