Story: I have done all the work by myself. I started out in February of 2010 with just a simple LCOG build. Highline fenders, 2.5 in lift, Tummy Tuck, and 35 in MTRs. I completed the build in May. I was hit by a driver on a cell phone on June 1st, resulting in a flop on my passenger side. After a few weeks of fighting with the INS Company I was paid for the damages to my Jeep, funding some of the second part of my build. I sold off some of my like new parts also. Recoil sent me a link for a set of new JK Rubicon axles for a good deal. I ordered a pair of TNT trusses and some other Rokmen goodies. I spent 2 months with 100 plus temps stretching my frame, cleaning and welding the TNT trusses on the new JK axles. I also built from scratch 1 ton steering with spider trax hiems. I finished the Jeep a week before my second trip to Badlands, with some of my JF brothers and IndyORV guys. I am very happy with my Jeep. I drive it everyday to work 60 miles round trip. I get a ton of looks and thumbs up.
