Nice build nice to see these continue to pop up, unless Omelet is updating these I really don't have the time to update the WK THREADS LIST, but I will get them all in there eventually!

Good luck with the rest if the build!

Yeah, I'll snap some pictures and upload them soon. My real camera is broken hence the lack of pictures in this thread.

The back is easy, and I've read even easier with a spring compressor.

Here are some pictures I've been slacking on taking. I used L shaped brackets to lower the lights an inch.





Ignore the dirt on my step pad....theres still dried up mud and rocks embedded in it. I need to wash it soon.



Got my ORT badge!

Almost all the parts are in! Just waiting on the order from Rusty's to arrive with my trac bar, rear poly spacer and extended rear sway bar links.

So far I have the OME HD springs, Bilstein 5100 struts and shocks, 1.5'' Rough Country wheel spacers all around, tires and JK moabs. Scored a set of 285/70/R17 Duratracs for $250 with about 60% tread left on them.



Also installed my 7w Cree reverse LED's. Man what a difference!

I'm scheduled for Wednesday the 11th to get all my parts installed. I'll snap some pics in a bit, but badge really makes the back look sharp.

It was slightly cheaper and the 5100 struts add a .75'' boost even on the lowest setting, which, since I was planning on modding my OME anyways, turned out to be the easier path instead of stacking strut spacers.

Getting completed by the end of today. Decided against using the 5100 struts up front. It will cause too much stress on the front end parts. So whats going in:

Front: OME HD springs
Rear: OME HD springs, 1.5'' poly spacer, Bilstein 5100 shocks, adjustable sway links, adjustable trac-bar

Should sit with a .5'' rake like BlackedOutWk's Wk. Will post pictures probably tomorrow in the day light.

Also looking to sell the Bilstein 5100 front struts. Brand new in box. PM me if you want them.
