Are those the CJ specific rear flares?

They're Smittybilt for a CJ. I'm sure they make similar ones for the rest of the Wrangler family.

Pretty much have everything together. Still waiting for a front driveshaft but I did take it out to test things a bit. I cannot believe how smooth the front rides! The rear definitely needs links and coilovers but it's gonna be a while before I can do that. If anyone wants any specific pics just ask, I really got into it today and didn't take many.

Thank you sir. It doesn't take much to improve from what it was though. Lol.

A few questions, First whats with the vitamin water bottle? Using it for a coolant expansion or are my eye deceiving me. What is the reason for re-working the front suspension with links?

Yeah, I'm using it for a coolant overflow of sorts. Sometimes I'm cheap like that. My '83 Chevy has the same brand.

I went to links for several reasons.. biggest reason was for more flex and smoother on the rocks, also with going full width I would have had to remount my leaf springs to the outside of the frame.. And part of me just wanted to do it for the satisfaction of a big modification.

Made sure the Jeep works. It does. Should have went with 16" travel shocks. Oh well, these can go to the back when it gets linked.

Thanks. You can really feel a difference with one upper link in as apposed to both. With both it's like having a swaybar on it, with just one there is tons of travel, obviously.

Wheeled the Pike's Peak area June 24. Had a good time but figured out my radiator is plugged internally much worse that I thought. Spent a lot of time overheating, so replacement radiator is ordered and on its way. Got a few pics, not sure if anyone else got any good pics of my Jeep yet.

Been busy with my real job and trying to get wheat harvest done so the jeep has been neglected. Did get a radiator in it a few weeks ago. Today I got my AFI TBI kit put together. Think I've got a vacuum leak or it still needs to learn the IAC position cause it idles a bit high. Will look into it more tomorrow. Couple pics of in progress work...
