Installed my new BDS lift. Man, this is one nice lift. I went from a 2 1/2" lift to BDS's 4" lift. It raised my Jeep an additional 3 1/2" over my worn 2 1/2" lift. The ride is outstanding. It is super smooth and it's not even broke in yet. High quality leaves which are military wrapped and have nylon pads between each leaf to help them articulate better. They also use the bolt type clamps to allow for better movement as well.
If anyone is looking to buy a lift I highly recommend buying a BDS kit. They are excellent to talk to and were very concerned that I was happy. They even called me a few days later to see if my local dealer took care of me to my satisfaction and to see if all my concerns and needs were met. About a week after the follow up call from BDS I received a free T-shirt and some stickers in the mail from BDS for no reason at all.
I was driving down the highway at 70 or so MPH, and a work crew decided to stop and pull over, causing everyone to stop. Unfortunately, everyone else can stop a lot faster than my old Jeep that only has brakes on three wheels. So instead of killing the workers getting out of their truck, I drove off the road and into a tree.
Amazingly, I'm barely injured. My neck hurts a bit, but the doctor says it should be fine in a week or so.
But anyways, I'm in the market for a CJ if anyone has one for sale..
Pulled all the tires off to look at the brakes. Decided to replace all the shoes and wheel cylinders. The drums look pretty good so I'll leave them. Tomorrow: redo all the hardlines and install the new soft lines which should show up tomorrow. :-D
Lifted out the roll cage a few days ago. It will need a minor bit of welding to clean up some rust that's starting to eat through a seam.
Once the ^%$$#* snow stops falling (15 inches last week, 6 to 10 tonight, maybe more on sunday ) I can get started on fixing the swiss cheese floor boards.
Marching or fighting, it all pays the same.

Support your local MS foundation. You don't know how much this disease sucks until it affects someone you love.
It was last night but I got the wiring harness, dash, and windshield out. Now I just have to drop the gastank and cut the old, crusty, rusted body bushing's and bolts out. This weekend I should be getting my sandblast on.
