LOL, hardly.. I was trying to be the mature one by refraining from further comments regarding Annabelle but there you are continuing to fuel the fire.

Excellent observation. The previous owner had this to tow a lightweight duck boat back and forth to the coast to go hunting a couple of times a year. The rest of the time, it was a "drive it on Sunday" vehicle, if that. He got the front hitch to help maneuver the boat on tight ramps at 2:00 in the morning with use of the headlights, and he got the undercoating to prevent any saltwater damage .

We'll have a build thread on this one at some point, when funds allow us to get it in the shape that Annabelle wants it.

I'm a little concerned about what it says about me that I saw those legs, but still went "holy crap, go back to the picture of the engine compartment!"

That sucker is clean as a surgery scrub room! Nice find!

Nice thread, and Annabelle is lucky to have a wrench getter like you while she does the work!
I'm getting ready to tackle my 05 build. Still debating on taking out the R/C lift and going with a 4" Currie or just getting the control arms. BTW, if Annabelle wishes to come help out on other builds, I'm sure we can accomdate her expert help!

Noooobie to Jeeps!

Yes, I am quite the exceptional wrench-fetcher.

Whether or not you swap springs/shocks depends on how yours are riding, I think. You can always throw in the adjustable control arms and see how you like it, and then add the spring/shock combo later.

You're going to have to pry Anna away from her LJ if you want her to help. She's so wrapped up in that thing that I can't get any assistance with Greta anymore...but if you guys knew what we were planning for it, you'd probably be more interested in that Jeep than mine.

Awesome build, and I'm definitely interested in the trail gear.

That'll be a major section or three, later on. Suggestions welcome.

I've found mine to be quite helpful over the years. Paid way too much for it though!
