How much do those belly guards go for?

Spent an hour and a half cleaning 2 years of break dust rust off my rims.

KOed my rear diff cover on a rock on Sunday so removed and repaired the cover and added fresh fluid. Changed the front diff fluid while I was there. Brand new front pads and rotors up front. Changed to grade 10.9 bolts for the front skid after stripping one out and had to drill and retap it. Oh the carnage of wheeling with stock height. OME in the mail!

The las two pics are of the infamous "jounce" which needs to be removed for the airline to pass through the jounce mount at the top of the spring. Nowhere in the WONDERFUL directions (not!) do they tell you exactly how to remove them. I got my Bosch cut off tool and sliced them length wise, that works much better than trying to spread the damn springs!
As you can see, I opted (due to my own experiences) to go with a single inflation port. It is completed through a brass tee, but the ferrels and sleeves do not insert easily into or over the Firestone 1/4" tubing supplied with the kit. Brute strength and ingenuity saved the day.
I am exhausted!

Spent even more time getting the rust off my wheels. This "Purple Power" stuff works great. One more day of really cleaning them and they should look brand new. I also used some touch up paint on the big chip from the balancing weight.

Also have you ever seen clad alluminum wheels on a laredo that were "shiney"? I was so proud of them and this *** at work told me I didn't do a good job because they weren't shiney. They aren't chrome...

Hauling her home for the first time. Pretty sure my fuel pump is out, It will start for a second then die. Can't hear the pump coming on, I swapped the ac compressor solenoid for the fuel pump one and still nothing.

Any ideas before I spend $250 for a pump?

Installed 1" spacers.

I could have waited to install with the lift and shocks when they arrive, but I was bored!

The ONLY way a belly pan would effect sound is simply by reflecting the sound waves, nothing further then that. And at that, it shouldn't be at all that audible.

Unless it is rattling from being loose. But you mentioned engine noise so...
