Don't think I did a measurement. You're the second person asking for one...guess I should get off my duff, huh?

Teraflex or RE = "New Hotness"
OEM (UC or not) = "Old Busted"

I'd like to see one. I need to take one myself. I have no idea how much this new lift got me exactly, and I'd also like to figure out if one end is higher than the other so I can get it leveled up. Or maybe get it leveled up and then add an inch on either end...

Did you ever do a hub-fender mearurement on you heep after you added the spacers? I'd like to see how much more height I can add before things start going awry. I know, I know, all Jeeps are different.
22.5" front, 23.5" back.

I might can give you beer for them. That way you don't have to go buy the beer yourself.

Got the tranny and t-case all cleaned up, now I'll watch for a leak. Couldn't readily find the TC breather, so I'll have to get back up under there and see if I can find it. I think I'm not leaking from the seal though, so that helps. I think I just took on a little water and it was boiling out, taking a little bit of fluid with it. Tomorrow I'll make sure the TC is topped off with ATF.

Should have a replacement radiator Tuesday or Wednesday. Radiator Barn shipped it out Friday.

We went to Red Cone and Radical hill today, love that trail. Although it was busy, Webster had just opened, so there were a lot of folks.
The trail was wet, it rained a good chunk of the afternoon.
The mountain goats were at the top of Radical also, they are kinda cool.
We drove most of the "Northfork" trail today, new to us. We have done the south fork and the middle fork of the Swan before.

I got that gage from a shop that is out of bisuness..Wilderness off road , was on Dry creek and Broadway. It was made by Smittybuilt, which is still around,($20)
It is called an inclinometer or a clinometer, I have heard it called both.
Pure bling, but I really use it.

I've got some new (to me) gears coming and don't know the first thing about installing them. Who here does and would be willing to lend a hand sometime in the future?
