Not really a build thread







Sorry the pics are dark I JUST finished

It took me ALL day to put on RC 2.5" SL/1.25" BL/MML/2.2 Steering Stabilizer and 33" TSL's on some wheels I got on Craigslist for $50 and then spray painted flat black (I had to use the chrome lugs and center caps from my old wheels).

After I took it for a test drive I had no vibes up to 75 MPH I know that is how it supposed to work but knowing myself I figured something would go wrong.

All my gears on the bottom of the shifter (2nd, 4th and reverse) seem further away but still go in easily. Should I adjust something or is this OK?

My speedometer is also perfect (according to my handheld GPS) with the 4.88's and 33's.

The only thing I forgot was to screw the gas filler back in and put the gas cap on I saw it after the test drive when I smelled gas in the garage

Now I just need to go out and do some hard wheelin and break my turdy5 so I have a NEED for a S35/D44

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it! What do ya'll think?

Hows the ride? I've heard Rough Country shocks can get a bit firm.

It is definitely stiffer but it seems like it is from the springs, not the shocks. It is a good ride.

I haven't updated in a while and my jeep is a little different now.

Tube Fenders, Super 35, HD tie rod and drag link, 35" KM2's and a few other odds and ends.





Now Im having a problem maybe someone could help me with. I used the 3/4" led's for side blinkers. And even though they are a two wire light I TRIED using them as parking lights. My goal was to use them as a parking light only and not flash. However, when I hooked them up to the 3rd wire they still flash. Does anyone know what the problem is?

If all else fails I was going to just splice in to the power on my headlights so that anytime my headlights are the parking light led's would come on.

Any thoughts are appreciated!
