I am interested in this also as I have RE coil springs and when they need replacing I will probly go with someone else's springs.

Any chance your truck will be finished by Thanksgiving, Mr. Yates?

Yes Mr. Nickel.... it's basically done now except for the raised body mounts and a few other odds and ends. I'll be at JV.

For the Eastwood product.... one kit will do the front footwells.... I didn't do the rear footwells or cargo area. Stuff works pretty nice.... no more hot feet.

Spent a few hours over the weekend getting my junk organized for next week on the rocks. Figured I would post a few "shiny" pictures before it gets all scratched up.

Its basically done except for the body mount lift and the rear tire carrier which Blaine and I will get to after Thanksgiving...we just ran out of time.

I can also say that I am not happy with a few things. First.... this Bestop stuff has me irritated me to no end. I cannot believe that a company in this day and age with their experience cannot find a way to integrate its products before unleashing them on their customers. I am speaking specifically about the lack of ability to tie down the Duster with the wrap around Windjammer. I am going to use a snap kit and gak it together for now but I am pretty much done with that product line and will be selling it cheap when I get back from wheeling.

The other thing I found was the Sun Performance mirror relocators. These have been on the market for years and I have never seen any issues with them mentioned but I found a few right off the bat after installing them yesterday. First off... they make no provision for the detents on the factory mirrors which means the only way to keep them stationary is to torque the snot out of them so they don't move. Not good for the long term. The other thing is that the passenger side is basically worthless as with soft doors which is the only way you would use these besides with no doors, the mirror is practically invisable. Pure crap IMO.

Anyways.. enjoy the shiny pics and I'll have some rock pix in a few weeks

Thanx..... I think

Those are actually HID's with integrated ballasts. I have the wiring hidden inside the winch guard and they are run through a relay. They work pretty damn nice for 6v lanterns

I believe that may be the best looking TJ on 35's I have ever seen on here. Perfect balance of form and function. Nicely done!

Nice thing about Robert's Jeep is that he wheels it hard and it still looks like shown.
