It's been a while, not the greatest thread I have going here - but I got a steal and have to share.

image-4018885738.jpg

I was planning on painting my stock wheels matte black. However I was tooling around on eBay and found something interesting. I bid, won, and now they are here. Cost? $135 + shipping. So $235 in all - for 5!!!!

All unpacked - now my matte-black paint idea is out the window and on to bigger better ideas!

image-3270572804.jpg

Stay tuned.

Where did you get your lift installed? I'm also located in Northern VA and so far the cheapest quote I recieved was $600 from Hi-Tech Trucks and $650 from the Jeep Dealership, but neither place sounded like they had any idea about lifting a WK and said "The back is the hardest to lift". Looking for a place thats already lifted one.

Yes it is. I was inspired by Omelet.

I bought the OME HD online, and took it to Quality Tire in Woodbridge (next to Potomac mills).

I forget what it cost, maybe $500? But that was labor.

Well a little more refinement is needed, but the basic idea is there. Now just to come up with a better tape-off scheme and do some touch up. Other than that, wheel #1 is done.

It is Duplicolor Bedliner on the spokes, with OD Green Matte Camo paint on the spaces and on the center cap.

Thanks to some gorilla glue duct tape I was able to clean up the lines.

1 down, 4 to go.

Got some good stuff coming down the pipeline!

image-1547875044.jpg

Getting prepared to do the modification to my OME HD lify. Rusty's Rear spacers, Strut spacers, Adjustable Trackbar, and some cut/painted PVC pipe to extend the rear bump stops - all standing by to be installed. Still waiting on JKS #2001 disconnects to arrive for the rear sway bar.

image-1072852035.jpg

Finally finished up the Wrangler rims I got off eBay. Now I just need to save a few more pennies to wrap them with 285/70/17 Toyo AT2s, which should make a nice compliment to the modified lift.

Next up will be to do the rear fender roll.

Another part of my lift mod came in today:

28" Bilstein 5125s for some extra rear articulation.
