today I finally fixed my problem! a couple weeks ago a bolt broke off in the unibody of my wj while installing my lift.. it was the passenger side upper shock absorber bolt in the rear. normally I would have welded a nut on it and got it out that way but it broke off inside the body. last week I got it drilled out a little and tried an easy out... bad idea! the easy out broke off inside the bolt. so I ordered a special drill bit to drill through the easy out. then drilled it out and kept drilling the bolt until I could start to see threads.. then ran a thread chaser and it worked like a charm! now I can run 4 shock absorbers on my jeep instead of 3 finally!! now just need to save a couple more $$ to order bilsteins from kolak.

nahh based on where hes sitting on the tires the first pic is definitely BB'd... second pic looks like you might have some coil sag though i that is indeed lifted. I found with my BB and stock size tires it was always a task to take pictures of my Jeep and actually notice a lift whereas in person you definitely noticed it.

The front looked low for a BB to me, I guess that is what caught my eye. The back is lifted for sure though. Maybe I need a tape measure pic!

Well usre it sucks having zero legal wheeling other then pasture driving on family land (boring) and rarely getting worthwhile snow. But even with lacking those driving a jeep is second to none.

It's funny, but I often find that other jeepers are doing the same projects that I find myself doing almost simultaneously... Great minds I guess.

That looks sweet. What is your legal limit? That looks like it matches the rears.

My 3 year old daughter and I put my rage rack together in the living room floor today. I don't have cross rails so it's not mounted yet.

Drove it home to put the 5 tires in the garage! Parts coming in is a great feeling!
