I've actually read further into this. This can get very pricey. However, the guys that do it, do it right they don't miss a single spot on the vehicle. They have even been on the Discovery Channel to show how they do their work. But hey, if you got the loot go for it, I know I would regardless of where I lived. Just to say I have an up-armored Jeep.

lol - I feel bad that I laughed when I read through this thread, but it really sucks you have to do this to survive. I'll add it to the build threads.

It has been some time since my last update, so I added all the oem skid plates, went to the beach and got some flex shots of the rk lift kit with bilstein shocks.
