Thanks bud! I am sure I won't keep it forever, but it will be my primary Jeep for the foreseeable future.

Awesome. I just have the utmost respect for you. For anyone really who has put their heart and soul into a project like this. Much better then buying it already modded. Major thumbs up

That's exactly what all the guys at 4WP asked me today when I showed up It won't be for a while. I am still having fun with the IFS!
no doubt i got the feeling if you did that you would just turn it into a small monster truck it would go from beast to wtf was that????

Pretty Stock for right now

Well that is the best we can do. With the 285s the factory stops limited the tire right as they hit the inner fenders. With the 295s I extended the stops right before they hit the outer fender lip. Any more and the tires would eat the fenders on hard hits! I can't wait to see how it goes with the 35s

So anyone know of some good quality lug nuts for a good price? I have some silver ones right now that are rusting and starting to look like crap. Not really looking for chrome ones, but not apposed to it at a good price.

I just put some blue anodized lugs on yesterday. You can see a pic in my build thread. I have black ones on my Charger and my 99 WJ and they look nice. Wanted to try something a little different on this ride.

Well thanks a lot Chris! I don't think aluminum is the same as SS though

I have found a couple sets of 20 for about $60. Not sure I need new ones right now for that much though. I mean mine still work they just don't look very nice.

Thanks bud. Looks like they have some chrome ones just like your black ones. They are really cheap so I might go for them, but I really want some stainless ones so I don't have to worry about the chrome chipping off and rusting again.
