After adjusting the coilovers so I get 6.5" of up travel this is how it sits. It's pretty level and I may raise the back up .5" so it has a little more rake. I also need to trim the rear fender wells. The 37s currently rub and when I put the 39s on they are really going to rub!



I also had a chance to put some hi/low HID headlights. They are bright!

Another great day at Johnson Valley on New Year's Eve. The traction on the rocks was unbelieveable. The only problem is my PSC steering box has developed a leak out of the front.

The top of Claw looking east where you exit. The pic was taken from the top of the mountauin where Wrecking Ball exits.


Another great day!

Hey John,

Anytime!

Some late Xmas present arrive from Santa "Old Dominion Freight."

BFG Krawlers Competition Red labels. Thanks goto Rob Usnick. I was going to sell the Blue labels and rims but now I think I'll keep them for when I want to drive to trails. The reds will go on a new set of Walker Evans Beadlocks. The Jeep is still very streetable except for the tires needing flares or flaps.

I love your builds they look amazing I was wondering if you could answer a quick question for me about painting. This summer I plan on painting my 1998 tj blue and unfortunatly (spelling) I have to do this outside but I still want it to look decent when done is it possible could you give me some direction on this. i have painted once before but it was just a cheapy job so I didn't worry to much but this one is going on my baby. Sorry if I am out of line asking all these questions but thanks in advanced.

some people say I am too hard on my jeep I say I am just diagnosing weak points.....

You need to be dust free and your work needs to be prepped right. Prep is the key to any good paint job. What type of applicator are you going to use? I like a few coats with smooth sanding between coats to keep everything smooth. The final clear coat will make the color pop.

Checkout Gunkel he is a paint and body god!

Today we did a day trip to Calico and ran Doran Scenic Dr Loop. Everything was fine until we ran into Tony from Genright and few others.

Decided to play on Gatekeeper (after we did the loop) and end up with this.

I had an extra drive shaft, u-joint and straps but all of it would do me no good.



The driver rear wheel got really wedged and it only took a little bit to snap the rear pinon yoke ear off.

The Genright aluminum stretch. I need to trim them to fit the 37-39" tires I have. The weigh around 8 lbs a side vs 40 lbs for the steel.

No, standard TJ top. The rear axle is just pushed back 5-6"
