Track Bar has been hitting the pumkin. Never Noticed till after it broke. It pull the treads so I assume it has been a long time coming. this is it after I welded it back on the following day. I'm at 2" of lift. I think an extra .5 will fix that and once the 35's go on Ill have to bump stop more so the contact would not be a problem.

I also have added
Flat skid starting where the exhaust crosses over the oil pan back.
Flairs are off and flat fenders ordered.
4:88 gears. this is to prepare for the bigger tires!

Hey guys. I have not done to much to the TJ But recently I have started to get a few things accomplished.

Here are the new Rear metal Flairs. .25 of the tire is out from the flair which is exactly what I want. Helps keep the body of the jeep off the obstacles. Later I do want to get full corners but they are pretty pricey

Got the flush mount Tail Lights in.

The wiring was a easy except there is an extra pack on the driver side which we assume it is for a trailer wiring harness


After the whole saw cut. Noticed it was slightly oblong.


So we came up with an idea which worked great. *Patent Pending. lol


this is what we came up with after. Perfect!


With lights on no brake


With Brake. Really Bright!


Day light pic of the rear. I also Flattened the license plate around the Tub too
