So getting home from work and having time started working on my mental list. I believe I have a four inch lift due to the fact I have 33s on er. Has any one ever managed to put on some rubicon shocks from a jk I believe there's some modding for that and think it would be fairly ez and haven't delved to much into but I'm glad it will save me the ones in buying a lift would like to soften up the ride a little.

Looks like a solid start. All the oil leaks have probably been there since it rolled off the lot in 1980, have fun chasing them haha.

Keep us updated on the progress.
