^ Nice! Amazing what a little lift and some new meats will do to the overall look of a Jeep.

I was stupid and replaced my old stock leafs with new stock, but being in college and broke I couldn't afford a lift, shocks, tires, etc.

However, got hit by a drunk driver this summer. Hoping I can spend a little cash on my Jeep next summer.

I can't even begin to tell you how much nicer that looks! Good job and keep up the good work! And get professional installation on that windshield glass.

Well a little update. Things have been slow. Got my ac compressor for oba. Mounted it up. Now i need to figure out how to get the old belt off and set a switch up for this. Anyone who has tips to get the belt off please let me know. this is the only thing that is holding me up from finishing the oba project. I have all the fittings. Heres some pictures.

And this thing is SWEEET, play your radio or mp3 player music off a battery. came with a drill i bought.


Just some pics i took
