From Totally Stock to Ready to Rock: Yellow Jeep Build
I have the beginning of my build going together as i type. I was only there for a week of the work and lots of the main things we had to do. I went with the 5.5" long arm lift kit with the 5" stretch from clayton but put 4.5" coils. Swapped the stock rear D44 with a waggy D44 and the stock D30 with a waggy D44 which are both, as we know, 6x5.5. Gen-right high line fenders with 6" flares both front and rear with corner crushers. Rear came custom ordered to have the flares welded on from the factory! Thanks Vecoplan for the hookup. Corner crushers and flares are linex'd. Going with 38" TSL's on black alloy rims. Stealth LED side marker kit, Teraflex SYE. Aftermarket double cardon shaft from Oliver's shafts somewhere near charlotte, if not in charlotte. ARB rocker sliders, and a bunch of other stuff. I will resize pictures and post them tomorrow.

Reason: Different setup.
more plasma cutting and markings for the notches to be cut out for the new coil bucket and shock relocation notch for the extra 5" the rear is getting pushed back. That is the bumper that will be on my jeep. Linex on alot of stuff that can hit trees/rocks/etc.
all the fenders on and ready to go. notice in the earlier pics of the fronts where the hole is between the body and the flare. That is where the louver goes and makes the bolts so much easier to get to when putting the body bolts back in.
Here is a better pic of the louver hole i was talking about. Keep in mind, all the work i show has been done within 6 days. Including: stripping the jeep of the fenders, and stock suspension. Cutting off stock brackets and grinding smooth. And so much more. I can tell if someone asks me. Just gonna get some more photos up and go to bed first. haha.
Cut the hood and put some simple weather stripping over the cut metal for mainly protection, but i like how it looks. The highline fenders are too high for the stock hood. Much cheaper to fix it yourself, right?
